Who here would like to see a clone of the Steyr AUG produced here in the US?  I was thinking about asking DSArms to do it, since they already seem to have a relationship with Steyr from the purchase of the STG58 reciever blueprints.  If I'm not mistaken, there would be a high demand for weapons of this type, and if we put enough pressure on them they just might do it.  Personally, I would like to see it made with the scope mount rather than the integrated scope and also use AR mags, but that's an issue for later.  If anyone agrees, send 'em an e-mail - that's my next stop.

AR mags would be a MUST.

Because so few were made in comparisons to AK's FAL's and others, and correspondingly parts kits are so expensive, I imagine a AUG built on a US receiver would cost a minimum of $1500. Would anyone pay that for a possible Century type?
I wouldn't.

If it was a quality piece, made like a DSA FAL, I almost certainly would pay.  (plus thefact that I cant own a REAL AUG[V], but I could own a clone, if there was one)

if it was made with high quality us made components, then yes count me in.

 Would anyone pay 1500.00 for an AUG clone? I would say yes.
 People are paying more than that for the Special Weapons MP5 clones.
 I personally would be interested in an AUG clone if one can be produced for less money than a USR.

What for? Get a FAL. Better gun. Made here, right now.

Yes Oldeschool, I will get an FAL too.  I just heard back from DSA, they say they've thought about it, but they're already planning on a .223 FAL and some other .223 project (?).  So the AUG may not happen, at least not from them, but the future still looks bright.[:D]
