Steyr is mentioned on page2 of the article.

The sanctions were imposed under the Iran Nonproliferation Act, which Congress passed in 2000 to deter international support for Iran's nuclear, chemical and biological weapons programs and missile-delivery systems.
I fail to see how selling rifles supports nuclear, chemical and biological weapons programs.

However, it doesn't look like it'll directly affect us.

The penalties, which will last until December 2007, bar the companies from doing business with the U.S. government and prohibit U.S. firms from obtaining export licenses to sell sensitive products to these companies. The details of the transfers to Iran were not disclosed.
