What is the difference? Why are they banned?

They are banned because of the '89 "AK47" law which doesn't allow any military weapons to be imported into the U.S. Thus, only the weapons imported before that time or cloned weapons made in the U.S., using not more than 10 foreign parts to create the firearm, are allowed. That's the basic idea, someone please feel free to ammend or add-on to my reply. [img]www.auburn.edu/~littlcb/new jew.jpg[/img]

The AUG is the Real deal, just in semi automatic form for us. AUG stands for somthing like "Armee Universal Gewehr". It has a Flash hider, a pistol grip, and a forward pistol grip. (That forward pg, may be aftermarket) These were banned from import by Daddy Bush's non sporting intent import ban in '89. Imported rifles after that point could only have one of the "evil" features we all talk about. The one that is always chosen first is the detachable magazine. The USR (Universal Sporting Rifle) is an AUG with an unthreaded barrel, and a stock that had it's pistol grip altered enough for the Feds to consider it a thumbhole. Ergo, the only evil feature it has is the magazine. Keep in mind that the rules have changed since then, so even the USR wouldn't pass now days. The bottom line is that the USR is a postban AUG.

DriftPunch, why did you have to go and post that pic! Makes me regret selling my AUG. I bought mine when the first came into the US for $885. Sold it a year ago with the 20 mags for $4500. I still wish I hadn't sold it.

And this one aint no add.. [:)] [img]http://wsphotofews.excite.com/030/XZ/x5/xU/LA87453.jpg[/img] and to really crush you guys, wanna know how much new Steyr AUGs cost in average today here, yes they are imported and stocked by the Steyr importer. About 1700$, the A2 version with the rail only is a litte more to that, not much though. [beer]

Tuuka, Dagnamit. Now I got to go check the safe. Nope. Still there. Hey, I do like the scope covers. I got these stupid plastic caps that are so easy to lose and don't really like to stay in. Was that what came with yours? james
