I've always wanted an AUG simply because of Die Hard, but the Microtech MSAR would be a decent replacement I think (haven't checked any reviews of it though).

The earlier models were plagued with feeding issues. They are about $500 less than the AUG A3 M1 and still a very decent rifle for the money.

As someone who has both rifles. I have to say that the Tavor gets my vote. It is my favorite modern combat rifle. I still really like my AUG (MSAR), but the Tavor has better ergos, and just feels more connected. It has better mag ejection controls, a quicker mag release, better trigger (sure wish I'd gotten that Ratworx trigger pack when it was available), and no issues with certain types of mags (The MSAR will not accept some Lancer mags). I do like the easy change barrel on the MSAR, but now that I can't get barrels (AUG barrels won't work) that isn't really an advantage (it would still count as a plus on a "real" AUG). The drop down forward vertical grip on the AUG is nice, but honestly, I don't miss it. Reliability is a wash, both have been flawless. You really can't go wrong with either gun.
