The STEYR AUG is a gas operated semi-automatic rifle with a locked action.
The STEYR AUG is famous for its modular concept, which allows it to be quickly disassembled into six main component groups without tools. Here are the six component groups »
BARREL: The chrome-lined barrel can be quickly changed without the use of tools and has a foldable barrel grip. Gas pressure can be adjusted, allowing functionality under adverse conditions, such as cold weather.
RECEIVER: The receiver has an integrated Picatinny rail (Mil. Std. 1913) on which to mount various devices, such as a scope or flash- light. The barrel is locked into the front and back of the receiver.
TRIGGER MECHANISM: Located in the rear of the stock, it’s designed for semi-automatic fire only.
BOLT: The STEYR AUG has a fixed locking bolt, with seven locking lugs. An optional bolt is available to convert the STEYR AUG from right hand to left hand ejection.
STOCK: Black synthetic bull-pup stock, contains the receiver group, trigger mechanism group, magazine and external bolt release lever.
