Put away the drill bits, factory suppressor setting gas plugs are here. Limited right now as you can see. $100 from pjs, just don't crowd me in the check out line...

Ordered. Thanks for the heads up.

That looks like more than just a change in the size of the vent hole. What's up with the area underneath the black ears?

@maleante

Not seeing it under Parts- gotta call, or am I looking in the wrong place?

Nevermind- emailed Pete, plug on order now.

Saw on the Facebook group. I need this!
Link Posted: 2/28/2018 11:04:47 PM EDT
Awesome! Hopefully these will continue to be imported/made.

Don't know, but it sure makes it easy to identify versus the standard regulator.

Just emailed Pete. Hopefully I made it in time to get one. I have an AUG AAC 51t FH that I need to mount, and the stamp for my SDN-6 should be approved in the next few months.

Do these have a more restrictive inlet port for the suppressed setting? Or a more free flowing outlet port? I'm hoping the former for reduced port pop.
Link Posted: 3/1/2018 10:26:23 AM EDT
AAAAHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I need 3 and just spent my monthly allowance from the wife for guns haha Shito..... next month
Link Posted: 3/1/2018 10:29:23 AM EDT
Well, Pete is sold out of the initial batch, but I just reserved two gas plugs from the batch that is currently clearing customs. He said that batch is pretty small as well and it will be at least 6 months until the next shipment at a minimum, if not longer depending on Steyr's motivation to produce more. Get your pre-orders in now if you want one!

Got mine on reserve too

Got 2 as well. Maybe 13 or so left as of 25 minutes ago.
Link Posted: 3/1/2018 12:58:44 PM EDT
Hmm, I'm not sure if I need this since I already drilled mine out and it runs 100% as a result.

I'm also interested in this answer.

Got a couple ordered in any case. Thanks for the heads up!

It's only money.

My rifle has not had any issues/failures while suppressed with the standard plug, but it's just over-gassed.
Link Posted: 3/1/2018 10:40:07 PM EDT
Just ordered my first AUG yesterday from Pete and read about this late last night, sent him a msg and he replied early this am indicating that they were gone. A little bummed as I told him I plan on running it suppressed when I placed the order, anyways I'm reserved for one on the second batch as well.

Me too, but I ordered one anyway. If it works better, I'll sell the drilled one.

Argh, what's the facebook page/group that had this? I've been dying to get my hands on a couple of these for years now

I only reposted it to the group - and that was a couple hours after I put it up on here.

Steyr AUG owners group is the name when you search for it.
Link Posted: 3/2/2018 4:11:33 PM EDT
Ok, I think I just subbed to that group right after I posted

Thanks, I'm excited about getting it. It wasn't a gamble purchase as I had an opportunity to shoot one previously that belongs to a good friend of mine. I tried my 62gr BTHP coyote load in it and it was damn accurate and will be the primary use for it but it'll work for any critter when called upon;). SAS Suppressors is threading me a flash hider to use with my Sentinel can and the suppressor gas plug will be the last piece of the puzzle.

Yeah, I'm in the same boat as you and it sucks TBO.
Link Posted: 3/6/2018 3:32:02 PM EDT
In to hear the results. I need one of these myself.
Link Posted: 3/6/2018 9:54:39 PM EDT
Got mine, haven't used it yet, but the port sizes look promising. Keep in mind when reading the following, I'm using a factory 14" barrel. Mine was still slightly overgassed suppressed even with a .101" port often mentioned on the forums, .00785 port area. So, I used the stock port and added an extra port totaling .0103 post area and it was slightly undergassed. I measured the new plug with pin gauges at .110, netting .0095 port area. So, in between the two and hopefully the sweet spot! Will report back after shooting.
Link Posted: 3/6/2018 10:37:37 PM EDT
Wtf. U cant just come here and say u have a factory 14in barrel. Thats fucked up without pictures. And a sale price.

I emailed a few days ago and both 1st and 2nd batches were sold out already - so I guess we're in the 3rd batch which is a couple months out
Link Posted: 3/12/2018 9:28:58 PM EDT
So uh
How do we swap out these gas regulators?
Can someone make an idiot proof guide?
Link Posted: 3/12/2018 9:31:41 PM EDT
NM
read the manual for the first time. Didnt know it was in there
Link Posted: 3/13/2018 6:47:35 PM EDT
Mine came today. It looks like the ports are a totally different arrangement.

Anybody have information about what the GR setting now does? Or what, exactly, the suppressor plug is doing (venting more gas, letting less in, etc)
Link Posted: 3/13/2018 7:15:47 PM EDT
ON the civi version the gas plug has 3 settings.
-normal
-adverse
-grenade

the suppressor plug has 3 settings.
-normal
-grenade
-suppressed

Normal is same position. The old adverse is now grenade. And the old grenade is now the suppressed setting.
Link Posted: 3/13/2018 7:20:45 PM EDT
The suppressed setting (0ld grenade setting is a bigger hole) than the normal setting and is venting more gas. Now with the gun on suppressed AND using a suppressor. The extra back pressure from the can is cycling the action, w/out beating the rifle up internally. If you run the AUG w/ it on suppressed, but no suppressor. It probably won't cycle the action.

ha, still haven't shot mine with the drilled out ports I put into it... takes me a year to do it and then these come in. oh well, saved me $100 I guess assuming what I did works. I made the adverse hole just slightly smaller than the old normal which seemed to eject even weak powered ammo with no issues.
Link Posted: 3/21/2018 3:56:39 AM EDT
As long as the hole was drilled reasonably close to the right size, I'm sure it will work fine.

Me, I bought 2 of these for a 16 and 20 inch barrel. They work as advertised.
