Steyr AUG A3 M1 Black 3.0x NATO 20" CA Compliant
With 16 numbered slots, the M1 High-Rail version was designed to accommodate the widest range of optic choices, from a high-magnification scope to a short-eye-relief tactical scope mounted at the rear to a holographic red-dot sight coupled in tandem with a secondary multiplier. The High-Rail extends 2.57 inches back from the receiver and sits 0.820 inches over the stock comb.
PLEASE NOTE: Standard Steyr AUG rifles require Steyr made A3-M1 magazines, they will not accommodate standard Stanag or AR magazine. NATO Steyr AUG rifles will work with any Stanag or AR magazine, they will not work with the proprietary Steyr AUG magazines.
The AUG A3 M1 is built by Steyr Mannlicher-trained gunsmiths in Steyr Arms' new Bessemer headquarters and manufacturing facility.
SBR vs Bullpup
Being a bullpup, the AUG A3 M1 boasts overall length of just 28.15 inches, including its 16-inch heavy barrel, making it at least 8 inches shorter than an M4 carbine with a comparable-length barrel. So why register a Short Barreled Rifle (SBR)? The short-stroke gas-piston operation of the AUG runs exceptionally cleaner by nature because all of the operational exhaust gas vents out of the front of the rifle. The AUG's matching, yet opposed, stainless steel operation and guide rods affixed to the bolt carrier glide effortlessly inside the receiver for unparalleled smoothness in operation as well as exceptional reliability. Dual gas-adjustment settings ensure its operation even with the dirtiest ammunition and in adverse conditions.
The AUG A3 M1 has all the classic features and benefits that established it as the pinnacle of modern rifle design, including expedited disassembly as well as simple conversion to left-hand operation, which requires replacement of the standard bolt with the optional left-eject bolt and swapping the ejection-port cover. It also features a quick-change barrel with a collapsible forward grip.
