I'm looking to buy a NATO AUG A3 M1 but I'm very confused about the various models

    I'm very interested in buying a Steyr AUG A3 M1 mud with an extended rail. However, I found three separate NATO AUG A3 M1 mud models that all appear to be exactly the same but they have different UPC codes. I can't find a single online retailer that can list the differences between the three, and I can't find any information through Google.

    Can anyone tell me the difference between these three AUG versions? They're all the A3 M1 NATO mud version with the extended rail. They all look exactly the same in pictures.

    UPC: 688218739471 / SKU: AUGM1MUDNATOEXT

    UPC: 688218739013 / SKU: AUGM1MUDNATOL2

    UPC: 688218739464 / SKU: AUGM1MUDH2

    I can't find any resource that explains the difference between the three so I came here. Hopefully someone here is knowledgeable enough to educate me.

    It’s the rail; the first one you list is the extended rail, and I assume the H2 is the “high” rail, and L2 is the “low” rail.

    That's a good theory, but if you search for the L2 AND H2 UPC codes on gun.deals to find websites that are selling them, all the pictures have a pic of the AUG with the extended rail. So I think there are three different UPC codes for the extended rail version and I'm trying to figure out the difference.

    It could be that one of the UPC codes has the NATO bolt hold fix.

    A quick look at your information I believe it is the different rail size and one appears to be a nato which would be the 1 that takes the AR magazine.
    Here is a link it my help explain the non NATO vs the NATO.
    As for the rails , Basically there are 3 Lengths of them 6" 8" 10" .
