Steyr Arms AUG A3 M1 Features

The Steyr AUG A3 M1 is a semi-automatic, gas-operated bullpup rifle that is built with a 20 inch quick-detach barrel and operates on a long-stroke gas piston action with a multi-lug rotating bolt.  The AUG is designed to allow the bolt to be swapped out to eject out of the left or right ejection ports to prevent its bullpup design from throwing hot brass into the user’s teeth.

Steyr Arms AUG A3 M1 Capacity

The Steyr AUG is chambered in 5.56x45mmNATO and feeds from proprietary, translucent 30 round detachable box magazines.  These magazines have a unique waffle pattern that provides extra grip as well as added strength to the magazine.  Larger 42 round magazines are also made for the AUG however they’re most commonly issued to troops carrying the HBAR variant.
Measuring 31 inches long with an unloaded weight of 7.9 pounds, the AUG offers excellent maneuverability through close-quarter environments.  The shorter 16” barrel models offer even greater ease of motion measuring only 27 inches long with reduced weight.  With its bullpup design, the AUG offers full-length rifle performance in a more compact package.

Steyr Arms AUG A3 M1 Ergonomics

While the AUG has been made in a few different configurations, the control layout remains the same.  The charging handle sits on the left side of the receiver under the optics, the front grip can sit vertically or horizontally and assists in barrel changing, the cross-bar safety sits above the pistol grip, and the magazine release sits behind the magazine for ambidextrous engagement.

Steyr Arms AUG A3 M1 Fit & Finish

The Steyr AUG has a relatively simple disassembly compared to other non-AR pattern rifles.  The aluminum receiver on the original AUG was cast as one piece including the scope housing to offer a very sturdy and accurate sighting system.  Current AUG production includes modular optics rail sections that can be replaced with simple tools.
