    Depends on what you are using it for.........100yds, no magification, Eotech, want some magnification, Acog is great, I've got the Acog, both these are very good.....I like the open siting of the EOtech though, and if this is a short range weapon.........why spend the extra money on a very expensive ACOG

    Elaborating on that theme, the EOtech has a wide field range with no "scope" barrel effect like the ACCOG. I think the target aquisition is very good with the openness of the dot. ACCOG is more of a scope setup and a small one at that, so target aquisition may be just slightly slower....

    Hi!

    Usually I use an Aimpiont Comp M2-2X CET and I am happy with it.

    For some AUG-Z competitions we are supposed to use the original sight.
    It is made by Swarowski and has no enlargement, just crosshairs and a circle. It is built for military use and its good enough to hit everthing as small as a man in a distance of about 300 meters quite well.

    There is a real awesome picture I saw once with the ACOG on an AUG and it looks right at home. I'll look around for the photo and see if I can post it on the photo forum.

    Sorry for you but as I know Steyr don't produce left handed AUGs.
    Left handed shooters are supposed to use one of this horrible and awful things which prevents geting hurt by an empty cartridge. In German its called "Huelsenfangsack".

    How are Steyr pistols viewed in Austria, the home of Mr Glockmeister??? Here as you see we are a small rabid bunch, like Apple computer users 8)

    Good Morning Shooter!

    I am an Apple User but my gun is a Glock 34 with a 17 round magazine.

    Steyr pistols are not very popular in Austria. Most Austrian Shooters use Glocks in various sizes and calibers.
    Before I buyed my Glock I also tried the Steyr. I can't tell you why but I decided to buy the Glock. It was not my brain who said take the glock, I just feel better with the Glock.

    35 years ago, my first pistol was a Steyr cal. 6,35. A real pocket gun.

    All the Steyr AUG-Z I know have the ejekction port on the right side. Maybe (I really don't know it) the miltary AUG can be changed for left handers with ejection port on the left side.

    Hi Shooter!

    I have asked some AUG specialists.
    :D Yes, there is a conversion kit for Lefthanders for the military AUG.

    :cry: No, there is no kit vor the AUG-Z. Maybe Steyr will produce one in the nearer future.

    Hmmm, is anyone here good with photoshop? I've seen some guys on the 5.7 forum photoshop a couple of different scope onto an FNS-2000 to see what they like looks wise.

    You don't like the integral 1.5x optical sight? Works well enough for me that there's little point in getting another.

    The scope om my USR is a 1.5. I guess that means 1/2 magnification. It works very well for me. It has a large black dougnut with a fine crosshair in the middle. With another scope, I think it takes away from the lines of the rifle. Just my opinion.
