An Irish soldier prepares to fire her Steyr AUG

It depends on the application.

The package itself is very good, even the A1. The standard sight isn’t great (1.5 optics with essentially a thick circle as a reticle), but is fine for a basic rifleman. If the body is in the circle, you’re going to hit said body. Basic, but not pretty. The later variants with rails are nicer and offer more flexibility.

Personally, i like the bullpup design. Recoil is minimal and i actually prefer the mag-change. Downside to that are that offhand shooting will eject the casings into your face, but the rifle can be made ambidextrous.
Trigger feel isn’t as good as other rifles, simply because the trigger group sits in the buttstock. That said, only once have i had an issue of accidentally firing two rounds when i was firing semi-auto (Pull half way, single shot. Pull all the way, full auto.). Safety is perfect for me. Prefer it to the flip-switches.

Another awesome aspect of the rifle is the simplicity/maintenance on it. You can strip it down to basic components in less than 30 seconds. The barrel interchangeability is also rather nice if you go from 16 to 18 to 20 to 24 inch barrels with three moves, essentially. Reliability is great as well. We ran them caked in mud and some guys ran them without any oil because they didn’t want to clean them (don’t ask…), and they worked perfectly.

Something a lot of people dislike about it is the 5.56 caliber. I’ve never found a problem with it, and the fact that you can carry a lot more rounds kind of brings it back to an even playing field if you ask me.

So yeah, i like the AUG quite a bit and would definitely recommend trying one out to see if you like it. I’m glad i got to use it over the FAL in the military. Lighter and much more compact meant we could carry it far longer without issues.

Cheers!
