Up for sale is this LNIB AUG that has been in my safe and barely used. It's had fewer than 100 rounds through it over the last 2 decades. It comes with everything that was in the box from the importer, including the original box, serialized test target, owner's manual, cleaning supplies and oil can in the butt and magazines (5 30-round). As you can see from the photos this rifle has seem minimal use. Unlike many labeled as "Special" this rifle is completely serialized, not an assembled AUG. There are marks at the ejection port from the heads of the cartridges being ejected. It's LNIB and not unfired.
Ask for more photos as you'd like.
An additional 4 magazines (3-42 round & a 30-round) bringing the total to 9, the factory Armorer's Manual and 2 AUG speed loaders are included.
The Armee Universal Gerwehr (Universal Assault Rifle) is truly "universal" in design when one considers the many different configurations available. The Steyr AUG was first put into service in 1978. It is a landmark in that it is the first successful military bullpup to be put into service. The AUG is a futuristic looking design well ahead of its time. Some of the salient features of this rifle are it's use of lightweight materials, modular construction, and of course, compact bullpup design.
The AUG employs a synthetic stock that cuts down on weight, but is extremely robust. The trigger guard of the AUG is large and open allowing for use in cold weather conditions where gloves may be worn. The receiver is made of aluminum which saves weight, but is also extremely durable. In initial demonstrations, AUG's were subject to torture tests such as being run over repeatedly by army trucks with only the glass optics breaking. The stock houses the trigger, bolt carrier guide rods, safety and locking lug. All other components are modular.
The optics integral to the receiver employ a 1.5x Swarovski sight that is quick and easy to use cutting down on training time. In the event the optics fail or break, there are backup iron sights built into the top of the optics housing. The original reticule employed a simple circle that could also be used for basic range-finding. Simply place the target within the circle and shoot. A man sized target that fits in the circle would be about 300 yards away. For more precise shots, the 6 o'clock position of the circle can be used.
The bolt carrier assembly has 2 rods which house the integral return springs. One side is connected to the gas piston of the barrel assembly, while the other side is used for cocking the weapon. The bolt is a rotating design with multiple locking lugs. In the event the AUG needs to be converted for left-handed use, the bolt is simply replaced and the ejection port cover on the stock moved to the opposite side!
The most specific aspect of this rifle for the American user is its collection value. Valued between 4000-7000 for a Black. Many 20 inch green variants have been died black and the barrel cut to mimic a black aug.
• "Check the barrel closely on a black AUG to see it was a green AUG with a converted barrel. I Have customers that are buying the black AUG stock kits and then sending the 20" barrels off and cutting them down to 16" and selling the AUG as a black AUG matching #'s gun for a premium price. The green AUG barrel is threaded on the outside of the barrel from the flash-hider down to the stock. The factory black AUG's have only 1" of threads showing. They start at the gas piston and are only 1" in length."
