Hey all, just looking for some thoughts on the price for a gently used Steyr AUG USR? It has a 2x optic, looks great. I don't know squat about them but have a line on one. I know they only imported a few thousand, so rarity is a nice thing. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks all.

$1500 +, I think. Their rarity doesn't necessarily translate into $'s . A similar green A1 is $2000 or more.

Damn that sucks. I had read somewhere that they only imported about 3000 of them. I’m not sure if that is accurate but I thought that would help the value. Thanks for the info.

I paid $1,309 for a USR on GunBroker a couple years ago, but someone had cut the web out of the stock.

They're generally the least desired of the AUG family and therefore sell for the lowest money, even though they're few in number. Most buyers will not want the original config, and will be concerned with 922r when swapping parts (so they'd have to spend more total to reconfig than buying a newer A3 would cost).
The desirability of the USR rests in its A2 receiver and factory 1.5x optic.

For a collector to want it, it'd have to be NIB.

The USR, IMHO, is undervalued, both as a user and as a collector piece. Used values typically range 1500-1900, with near mint pieces bringing closer to the upper end of that range. Considering the original, Swarovski made optics, the USR is the lowest cost entry to a factory Steyr w/ integral optics, and the glass is superior to the current A3/M1 or STG77 optics, which I have read are made by Meopta. (The new glass has better contrast than the Swarovski glass, but is much higher in distortion (fishbowl), resulting in eye fatigue if used for much more than a quick aim)fully.

The heavy barrel on the USR was made by ADI, and is considered to be capable of greater accuracy than standard Steyr- or FN-manufactured barrels.

So, Austrian-made bullpup with original Swarovski optic and match-grade barrel, all for less than 2K seems like a bargain to me! Just add the barrel takedown button and the USR has all of the A2 AUG functionality at a discount.

Under-appreciated, yes, but this results in high value.

I might look into a USR when I get the money for an AUG, but I have the feeling I'd butcher it to remove the damn thumbhole plate.

I butchered mine with an A3 stock and 16" A2 barrel.

I paid $1900 for mine LNIB. Awesome option not only with the cool old style 1.5x optic but you can swap in a rail to use a modern optic as well. Before the anniversary STG77 that was not possible without having to use the modern scope (ugly).

The 20” bull barrel and a plus a 16” make an awesome range/home defense combo.

A dremal and Cerekote can make quick work of the rear web if money is tight. I opted to just get a replacement stock and save the USR stock for collectors. I can Always but everything right back the way if came
