I just saw some AUGs for sale with the model number having an "OCD" on the end.  They appear to have an STG-77/A1-looking scope on them, but with a 16" barrel.  All the images are of a black stocked model and all are from the right side, so I cannot determine if they have the bolt release.

I'm curious if the OCD scope and the STG scope are one and the same, and I'm also curious as to whether these scopes differ internally from the 1.5x built-in scope on the M1.  Is one better than the other in function, other than not having the top and right side scope rails

Lastly, anyone know if the OCD models have a bolt release?

Thanks,

Andy

Its simply an M1 with the same classic 1.5x scope found on the STG77.

The reticules are different between the 1.5x on the M1 and STG. The STG uses the classic circle with a small dot in the center (OCD probably = Optic Circle Dot). The M1 1.5x is a circle with crosshairs.

Pictures of various AUG scope reticules can be seen here:

I've heard that the glass used on the STG-style scopes is not as good as that used in the M1 scopes (and nowhere near as good as the glass used on the early Swarovsky glassed scopes).  I've read a post or two that the newer STG scopes have issues with clarity towards the edges, and a bit in from the edges.  Can anyone confirm or comment on glass quality?  Is there really an issue?  And as to my original question, Other than the rails on the M1 scope, is one 1.5x scope (M1) a better optic than the other 1.5x scope (STG)?
