I was talking to a fellow AUG owner, and we agreed that many or most AUGs that come up for sale are like new, or nearly so, with little or no evidence of having been shot. It is rare to see "shooters" for sale, and you often find AUG packages with magazines that have never been used. Are many AUG owners buying them as an investment? Is it the perceived difficulty of getting parts? Too expensive to risk wear or damage? Or just too shy to bring a flashy rifle to the range? Is there another modern, mass-manufactured firearm with this degree of "safe-queen syndrome"?
