What Options to increase the rail space of an AUG?
And what parts for spare ?
And where does everyone go for their parts?

My AUG is an AXR

I don't think you have any options for increasing rail space on your TPD, if I remember right, the receiver is based on the A2 receiver and extra rails and such have long been out of circulation.

For parts, Steyr sells a spare parts kit, but if you have questions and want to order the parts, Pete Athens is your guy: http://www.pjs-steyraug.com

He might be able to help you find some replacement rail that might work for you.

It’s a milled receiver
To get mor rail space I may have to get rid of the VFG

Ah, I was reading it as top rail space, but there is rail replacements for the VFG.

Not a bad price, but I think there is one that has 3 rails - lower right and left

I know the one Steyr sells is a two railed setup, but a three railed one isn't one I've seen.

I remember someone posting a quad rail a while back that looked like it fit to the barrel, but I haven't seen hide nor hair about it since then.

I have yet to need any spare parts but from what I gather it’s a good idea to have a spare bolt sleeve on hand as they sometimes break. Haven’t ever seen it myself but it’s not a particularly expensive part. Probably the easiest thing to do is just buy the factory spare parts kit. It has the sleeve, firing pin, extractor and some other small parts. Available from Steyr and from Pete Athens. If you aren’t in a rush wait six months and Steyr usually has some good Black Friday specials, pretty sure they had the spares kit for $125 last year.

Ah, thanks for the heads up, looks like $100 off normal price.

Yeah, the Steyr Black Friday sales had some really great deals. Normally though their prices are fairly high, most of the time Pete Athens (PJ Steyr) is a much better options. My recollection is that those spare kits are ~$180 from him though it looks like he is out of stock right now. Now I was just curious and did a search on Gunbroker and it looks like there is a seller with a couple of them for sale at $125. I would suggest just jumping on one of those.

I've broken a firing pin before, so one of those
Link Posted: 4/3/2019 4:57:00 PM EDT
Guy I shoot with has been running a AUG since the 80s and has shot a barrel out in his main AUG.

He said he’s broken a couple of firing pins and a bolt sleeve.

The other parts in the spares kit are the kind of things that might get lost even if they don’t break.

Broken bolts don’t seem to be an AUG thing, although I did break a locking lug off the trunnion once.

Ok I got the rail from
Guns@ratworxusa.com
https://store.ratworxusa.com/search?q=Aug

DO NOT buy this rail

First they send it without instructions

Second the set screw is factory set which you wouldn’t know because there are NO F***ing instructions

Third the set screw doesn’t level it. It will prevent the rail from moving downwatd but won’t prevent it from moving upward. So if u want to add an IR Laser you may not be able to sight it in. Poor design and not worth 100 bucks just to put a VFG on it bec that’s all it would be good for

Fourth it’s only one rail.

Fifth....F***ing 20% RESTOCKING FEE

Were you trying to install a rail that was specifically designed for an AUG to a TPD AXR barrel? Did you know that the gas block of the AXR, where the rail would attach to, is dimensionally different than the one on an AUG. The contours are close but not the same. The gas block is another part that Kent didn't outsource from Steyr. You can kick and scream all you want. It's not the fault of the rail.

An AXR isn’t an AUG

Don’t blame RatWorx or the rail in question.

It takes the same parts and has a milled receiver.
After messing around w it I figured out how to make it work
Bit WTH . No instructions and them I’m told it’s a factory set item after the fact is bad period. Is it that hard to add a small piece of paper at least saying not to remove the factory set set screw!

Doesn’t matter if it’s not the same specs. Is it too much to ask for instructions?! Or at lease a paper stating not to take the set screw out bec it’s factory set!

And honestly if I’m getting under 1.5 MOA w ball ammo and it has a milled receiver and it takes AR mags I’d rather have an AXR! I’d also rather have it than my X95 too!

Just because SOME parts are the same, it doesn’t mean all are.
Your efforts would have been better used contacting them.
Your rant is just a bit unjustified since you bought a part that wasn’t for your rifle.

It is for my rifle
And I asked them if it would fit
And in the end I got it to work after a lot of frustration.
The problem is that they didn’t send instructions or at least a piece of paper stating the set screw is factory set.

Guess I was a bit confused, installing these rails isn’t rocket science.

My apologies,.....carry on
