Some might already know, but Steyr has taken back their barrel making machinery from FN.

Barrel blanks come from Austria and HF mandrels are Austrian. Steyr is about ready to sell Steyr produced CHF barrels with... Wait for it... 1/2x28 threads

16" and 20"

Pete (pjs-steyraug) will have these for sale.

I wonder how long it's going to be till AUGs come from the factory with 'em. Good to see they are finally getting stuff out that the civilian marketplace has wanted.

Any ETA on the Steyr made barrels in general? I have that one FN 1:7 twist that has a burr of some kind in it that I need to send back. I'd like to get it swapped for a Steyr one

This is fantastic news! Really one of the biggest flaws with the AUG was the lack of compatabillity with US muzzle devices.

Any indication of the twist will be 1/9 or 1/7?
Link Posted: 12/19/2018 3:18:53 PM EST
Only 1/9 right now, no info on 1/7.

Class 3 machining may be cheaper for the threading these days.

ADCO seems to charge $140 for non-AR barrels now.

Thanks. I've pondered getting mine done.

I wish they'd offer a 14.5 that you could get pinned and welded.
Link Posted: 12/19/2018 5:36:05 PM EST
I forgot to mention that these have tighter chambers and are supposed to be more accurate than the FN barrels.
Link Posted: 12/19/2018 6:21:23 PM EST
Yeah got that email today. While its great news I really wished it was done sooner... especially before I acquired my three barrels 😡
Link Posted: 12/19/2018 7:16:18 PM EST
Needs more .300 Blackout and maybe even 9mm...

Great news though we could've done without the threading down the whole damn barrel since we're going MAGA here. That said, where's muh new trigger Steyr??????

why would you want it removed? that's there to give more surface area to allow the barrel to cool faster. it's also how the bayonet lug is mounted

For purely asthetic reasons and I have zero desire to attach a bayonet lug. As for cooling, the heat from my suppressor warrants paying much closer attention than the barrel.

Neat. Interested in a 20 or 18" 1/7 (or 1/8). At an aggressive price
Link Posted: 12/20/2018 2:16:02 AM EST
I'll probably pick one up if they do a run of 24" with a 1/7 twist rate. It'd really make it more palatable for a DMR-esque setup.

How does it run? Gassy? A significant increase in carbon build up?

Very minor gas but of course it is louder than a 16" AR with the same can but still less than without a can. I would definitely run the suppressor gas plug though regardless of suppressor choice. The ejection port by the R/ear is what it is as well.

Will new, complete AUG carbines/rifles be sold with these barrels too?

I asked Steyr this Monday and they said they will only be sold as "Spare" barrels for now.

With no flash hider or check nut.

Standard Gas system

As I understand it, 20's are ready and 16's were getting gasblocks yesterday.

Since Steyr can do barrels now, I'd love to see an 18" bead blasted stainless steel 1/8 with match chamber, no external threads, and 1/2x28.

Dear Santa...

Sold!

I'll take one too. Though, if possible, blacken the SS w/ malonite, and I'm OK with the threads, I kinda like them.
Link Posted: 12/25/2018 8:30:29 AM EST
Damn it steyr. Make some 14.5 barrels with the appropriate gas plug. Im

Can they make 9mm barrels ??

Yes and there's something like 600 barrel-less 9mm kits that could be imported.

I've been this close >< to cutting down an Austrian 9mm barrel to stick a 3 lug mount up against the gas block, I'd really appreciate a USA made 9mm barrel that wouldn't break my heart to chop.
