I want one. It screams "AUG Optic" for the A3, even though I know there are far better options out there.

Well, I like my AUG Pete sold me so much that I called and ordered another one just now. My incoming is a Green standard stock with a 20" barrel and the new extended rail. I am pumped!! Can someone recommend a decent (and under $600 with rings) illuminated optic, preferably a scope with magnification up to x9.

See! This is why you should read, study, and carefully take notes of all my collected works. Because yea, this is normal.

For reasons that I can't grasp - Steyr half-asses the scope zero on new guns.

Haha. Nice. I suggest if you ever plane to change the muzzle device. Have Pete do it before he mails it out.

Trijicon Accupower lines may be up your alley. Should have some models w/ magnification you want for around $600. I was going to suggest Vortex. But I think only they $200ish scopes can come w/ illuminated reticles. I'm not a big scope person. I suggest you go under the "AR" tab. And then under the "Optics, mounts, sights" header and ask.

For reasons that I can't grasp - Steyr half-asses the scope zero on new guns. They don't even bother to take about 120 seconds per gun, to boresight that so you'll at least be on paper at 50 yards. Because yes, it is Steyr policy that every new AUG be not even on paper at 25 yards. That way, every new owner of a $2000 Austrian exotic OMFG-AWEEESSSOMMMMEEEEE!!!! AUG on their first day to the range, gets to have their initial-ownership experience be "WTF?!? What Is Wrong With My AUG I Just Got!?" (tm)

Ever
Single
One

I think it's some kind of European hubris or something; polish that gun and sell it with an accent of your fine European construction; get so much so awesomely right - and then blow off something that basic at the end; silly customers should know they have to get that zero'd at <10 yards first to be on paper. It's like when Gaston Glock (also Austrian by the way), was told "Hey man, that support strut you have in your pistol case you hand-designed - it's engaging the pistol trigger and setting the gun off when people put their guns back in the original Glock storage case". To which his reply (I swear to God, this is even documented) "Stupid American customers, it says in the manual that the gun should be unloaded when you put it back into the case - I don't have to change that, they should read the manual. My case design is perfect" (Eventually, he was forced to change that - thank God).

It's not European hubris. AUG barrels and receivers are made in the US and assembled with the European parts in AL. Pre-ban AUGs from Austria came factory zero'd with a fancy zeroing target.

The AUG is an excellent gun, seems like you just figured that out. Congratulations on the second, you definitely have the sickness now.

In the 3-9x scope world, I'd put the SWFA SS HAD at the top of the list of what you get for what you pay for. However your scope budget is now maxed out.

https://swfa.com/swfa-ss-hd-3-9x42-tactical-30mm-riflescope.html

If you're ok with exposed turrets and a mil radian reticle, the optic is really nice. Otherwise there are new Nikon and Vortex offerings with more traditional designs and features for less money.

I like what you're thinking. Putting together a little DMR type AUG. Now all you need besides a scope. Is a small pic rail to replace the folding grip and get a bipod.

If you use firefox or google chrome,download the photobucket fixer to see all the pics.

I don't know what it is. But it's unexpectable. A little more care should be taken w/ some kind of zero on the scoped models.

I believe that the scope housing and optic is assembled in Europe and shipped to the US, where the optic housing is bolted on. As there's just one gentleman assembling AUG's, who also has the responsibility of being the gunsmith for their entire rifle line, I'm assuming that steyr doesn't find zeroing the scopes to be a fruitful use if time. They're slammed. Maybe it'll change for the better, steyr is on a hiring spree.

Interesting. Maybe they should include a little note in it then:

"Thank you for buy a Steyr Mannlicher, Steyr Arms product. We are hope you are please with your new rifle. Warning, the scope is not zeroed for this rifle and is probably way, way off. You should start at a 5 yard zero to get on paper. Otherwise your new rifle may shoot 20 feet over your designated berm. Thank you".

Well, I don't have anything that fancy (or expensive). Just an old 2020 rail and a Harris bipod. But w/ a 24inch barrel like the Gun Gods intended. :D

Maybe I'd get the fancy Steyr rail/bipod when they have a good sized sale again. Still be a lot of coin regardless.

I've got enough spare parts to build a dedicated DMR AUG. I just need another receiver. Hard to come by, those are. When I wanted to build a dedicated 9mm AUG. I just bought another AUG. I don't wanna do that right now.

Yeah, just a handy little hang tag or small sticker saying "scope not zero'd, start at 7 yards" would be perfect.

My 1.5x was a 1' to the right at 10 yards when I got mine, can't imagine trying to zero at 50 yards lol.

At least you can sleep well at night knowing the bipod/rail combo you've got is less than half the price of the heavy duty bipod steyr sells, and it serves the same purpose...

I'm always on the lookout for AUG receivers too. There's a monetary value to just biting the bullet and buying a complete AUG just for the receiver. My problem then becomes, what do I do with the spare parts? I don't need them and nobody is buying unless prices are rock bottom. If you dump the parts kit too cheap you then get so close to the price of a bare receiver that it's not worth my time to try to sell the parts then package and ship them. First world problems.

Sure, but it's not as cool IIRC, including the rail, bipod and pic adapter from KAC. I spent about $170 all together. The Steyr version w/ bipod, rail and muzzle device is stupid expensive at $925. But hey,...Steyr.

It appears my first order of mags from 44mag.com were stolen by either the mail carrier or someone in my building. The tracking number reflects that the box was delivered "in mailbox" (a lock box in my office building- we usually get a key in our locked mailbox for the package box); however, the key was never placed in our mail box. I have filed a complaint with the USPS local post office, but I doubt I'll ever get the mags (6 green 30s and four green 42s).

I subsequently (after ordering the second AUG from Pete) placed an additional order for more mags (before finding out the first was "lost"), and it should be here soon. Today I placed a replacement order for the first order and emailed 44mag.com about the loss. Hopefully the original shipment is eventually delivered. Drama, drama, drama.

I also got a PA 1-6x 24 scope ordered for the 20" AUG that is incoming.

Are you committed to the original charge handle for nostalgia purposes? I just ordered my first AUG from Pete on Wed and then I ordered the 2020 sear and the Manticore Switchback Mini charge handle. Before you send the mount back or go a different optic route, I'd strongly suggest researching different charge handles (Gear Head Works makes one as well however I much prefer the Switchback design). Good luck with whatever your decision is.

What we're the tips for not ruining the barrel?

1) lots of lube
2) remove bolt from lug
3) open up the lug so it doesn't scratch the shit out of the barrel (I used a flat head screw driver)

I removed the barrel and placed it on a wooden work bench with a towel on the table. Then I attached a 3/4 wrench to the lock nut and a USGI barrel wrench on the flash hider. The barrenl wrench was attached to a ratchet and a two foot long cheaterbar. Mostly, I jjust used a lot of leverage.

As to the other question I have asked about the butt plate, does everyone else have a bit of play in theirs?

here is a pic showing how both of mine are a tad loose.

OK, thanks. I looked at the instructions again and I followed them closely and figured out the problem. It's all good now!

I took the 20" to the range today and had a good time! It functioned perfectly and below is a 50 yard target with a rapid fire 30 shot group (IMI M193). Oh, my "missing" magazines magically appeared today!

Fantastic group!

I'm thinking of trying some Black Hills Mk 262 77gr's since I have a bunch and see how they do.....

The aero light weight scope mounts work mounted backwards.
Nothing sticking out to get in the way.
