Saw a post on the net stating that at SHOT, Steyr is claiming that they are negotiating to set up the long rumored US factory to make the AUG in the USA. :D

In order to be US compliant (992r)
They would have to assemble it here using less than 10 imported named parts
receiver
hammer
trigger
sear
barrel
buttstock
pistol grip
forearm
trunion
op rod
magazine body
follower
floorplate

There are a few other parts named that may or may not apply. but these are thw major components.

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?

Steyr might have a contractual stipulation that they be sold to LEO/Mil only. Not the first time that would have happened.

Gunbroker sucks balls for 95% of stuff. It's the place where people like to put pictures of stuff up for show and tell cause it damn well doesn't sell, except to the ignorant, at the prices they list at. The place is a joke to the informed buyer.

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.

Steyr IS going to be building them here. Might take a while but it is going to happen.

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.

Oh-well, hope he didn't need the money badly....

S.O.

$2000 is quite a bit for a stock weapon. You can get a decked out AR for that with optics, heavy barrel and a custom trigger. There's just something about an AUG though that will make me buy one anyway. Does anyone know how they'll come from the factory? Will it be covered in rails like the pics we've seen? Any factory optics? Will it take AR mags?

Guys,

We should not forget that, unfortunately, due to Steyrs sale of some .50 caliber systems to Iran, (and the State Departments ridiculous policies) that Steyr weapons are embargoed for purchase by Federal agencies here in the USA for two more years. The original embargo was for four years. So, bottom line, Steyr must survive on domestic law enforcement/civilian purchases for two more years before attempting to sell to the Feds. Sad really, depriving our boys of the possible use of AUG. I would not have posted this unless I was confident the above was true.
