Steyr AUG reviews
« on: July 08, 2013, 10:26:09 AM »

I have two of the new AUG/A3 SAs and have been using them steadily since their arrival in early 2012. It’s important to note, when I say using I mean really using, not casually shooting, I personally train on average 1,200 law enforcement and military students a year across the country. When I got my AUGs they were immediately put to use—in some respects abused—and the pace has yet to slow.

Steyr AUG A3 First Impressions and Initial Review

Out of the box, this thing is short. Shorter than my AR with the stock collapsed. One thing I was not expecting is the weight. It is deceivingly stout. The manual states that it weighs 7.8 pounds, a full 3 pounds lighter than my AR. Being so much more compact though, it feels heavier. But, that being said, the balance on it is superb. You can hold it in the firing position much longer than you can an AR, and it is even easy to shoulder and aim one handed.


American fans of the Steyr Armee Universal Gewehr, better known as the AUG, can rejoice now that Steyr Arms of Trussville, Ala., has relaunched it as the semi-automatic AUG/A3 SA USA.
