Eh, every weapon needs parts eventually.
True, but the point is, the piston system is far more reliable. Rather than being a liability, it's an asset.

A good marksman with a $200 scope will always outshoot a mediocre marksman with a $1000 scope.
No, I don't agree with that.

A $500 gun with a $1,000 scope is capable of shooting 1/2MOA. A $5,000 gun with a $50 scope cannot shoot 1/2MOA. Cheap optics will ruin a good gun, but good optics will make a good gun better.

Yes, a good marksman can overcome some deficiencies. What they can't overcome is poor optics.

Am I the only one that isn't convinced.

Is this really the way they are going announce its release/shipping?  *In the background of a vendor's photo*?

No guns to testers 1st?  No website update?  No message from the CEO:  "The day is finally here!  We appreciate your support over the past 3 years.. blah blah..."

The real question is:  Should I have expected more?  Heheh.

Also not overly thrilled just yet. Skeptical I remain.

I wonder if he used the torque wrench?

I think it's fine. Naturally, there will always be people who are not okay with the AUG in it's default state. There's always aftermarket parts, and likely to always be some form of clone out there.

I think it's good that Steyr has stuck with the design and made small changes to it. It just works, and has a strong reputation for durability and reliability. I feel like appeasing the whims of picky consumers who want featherweight triggers and bells & whistles will make the design more complicated than it needs to be, potentially causing functional issues.

Trojan Horse rifle bag by comp-tac. It is 36 inches so will work for CA. Kind of looks like a sporting bag and is rigid with padding.

Botach also has their Battle Steel Racquet bag. It comes in either 29 or 35 inches. It's the same case that used to be sold by Blackhawk.

OP - clearly you have a variety of options at a variety of price points.  I own a number of SWFA scopes and would not call them cheap.  I think you get a lot of scope for your money.  But a $800 or $1000 scope is generally going to have sharper and brighter optics than an $3-400 scope.  In a perfect world it would be great if you could try some of the higher priced suggestions and some budget options.  Only you can decide if that extra pop in clarity is worth it to you.  Also different people like different types of reticles, so a lot of it comes down to personal preference.  And ultimately how you use the rifle is going to influence what type of scope you want.  If 90% of your shooting is going to be offhand at under 100 yards and speed is your primary goal, it's hard to beat a red dot.  If you want to do some bench rest shooting, or you plan on shooting out to 300-400 yards, a red dot isn't going to cut it and a 1x4 or 1x6 scope will give you the versatility to shoot up close and at a distance.  And if you plan to shoot beyond 400 yards, or hunt at long range in low light a larger, heavier scope that gets you at least 10x or 12x is probably the way you want to go.

The good news is that you have a bunch of very good options and that there are a some  decent budget scopes that will get you 95% of the performance of an $800 scope at half the price.

And, as I said before, since you are new to rifles you should budget a bunch of money for ammo.  A good marksman with a $200 scope will always outshoot a mediocre marksman with a $1000 scope.

That bag is not big enough for us here in CA. We are limited to a 30" gun.

If you register it as an assault purse bag can it be shorter than 30"?

AE
No. In CA any rifle shorter than 30" is an SBR and SBRs are illegal here.

I was inquiring if CA had a bag registration program, not a gun one.

I like the long rail, as one can have back up iron sights (BUIS) installed on the rail, along with a reflex/red dot type optic.

I am thinking for my soon to be new long rail set up, going with Magpul backup sights, and then with a Leupold LCO red dot sight.
