Steyr AUG

The Steyr AUG is a fully ambidextrous, bullpup and lightweight assault rifle. The Steyr was designed in 1977 and has been in service ever since 1978. Though the Steyr is over 30 years old it has undergone numerous upgrades to keep it combat effective over the years, and has currently over 20 different variants. 

The Steyr AUG is chambered for the 5.56x45mm NATO round, but the submachine gun variant the A3 9mm XS can chamber the 9 x19 Parrabellum round. The Steyr was developed in mine of modularity and has been developed so that aspects such as barrel length and width can be mixed and matched as well as the ability to mix and match sights and ammunition. The Steyr is made out of a lightweight fiberglass- reinforced polyamide which gives the rifle a very low weight value at just over 3kg.

  • Assault Rifle
