Steyr might have a contractual stipulation that they be sold to LEO/Mil only. Not the first time that would have happened.M40_3Gun-Shooter said:So if these new AUG's are being produced here... When and where can I buy one? I've been looking for quite some time and I can only find AUGs of older production on GunBroker for prices that require lubrication. My local gun shop says I should try the quarterly gun show to find one. Why can't I go to Steyr Arms website and order one to be shipped to my local dealer? It works for DPMS doesn't it?
There is the saying, a fast nickel is better than a slow dime. A for-instance, There was a Yugoslav 308 pre-89 rifle had a regular ol russian scope and 2 mags IIRC. Guy wanted something rediculous like $2500+ for it. He ran the auction at LEAST 5 times and finally gave up and started putting it on sturm.com at a reduced but still rediculously over market price. it ran there for several weeks on more than one accassion. Had he not been greedy or done his homework he would likely had made a sale much sooner as Yugo AKs are the hot thing right now. A couple people on various AK boards even made reasonable offers but were rudely rebuffed.aubie515 said:As with many things in life...you can find bargains from GB...you just need to take your time and the right deal will come along. Also, it is all about supply and demand...if someone is willing to pay the asking price...than so be it...who are you to say someone was cheated. If the person didn't do their homework and it cost them more money...well I say it's the buyers fault.
