From the  Steyr Arms USA website:

$449.00

"Choose either a 16" or 20" barrel with 1/2x28 American threads and black fore grip. This 1:9 twist barrel is suppressor ready and sold exactly as shown in photo. This replacement barrel fits all models of the Steyr AUG, and will fit in any prior model from the A1 to the new AUG A3 M1. In California, it can ONLY be purchased for use with PRE BAN AUG A1, A2 AND USR. Check local states laws if unsure before purchasing."

If it is "suppressor ready" does it come with the suppressor gas plug then? If they are making that claim, then I would think it should.

Good question, but unknown.  I'm just happy that Steyr are listening and giving us more options.  The ability to use 1/2x28 muzzle devices without having to get them re-threaded or without having to buy a thread converter is a plus.  

Now if Steyr are really listening, I'd like to be able to buy this barrel (or any 16", 18", 20", or 24"... in 13mm or 1/2") on a factory rifle, not as add-on. Also some other suggestions would be some 1:7 barrel options.  A left hand bolt model from the factory would be nice too.  I'm not a lefty, but I think it's a deal killer for some lefties (if they are considering an AUG), to have to go out and buy a right-hand-bolt rifle and then pay a few hundred dollars extra for a left-hand-bolt.  That's not customer friendly and somewhat ridiculous.

I'm still an AUG wannabe!!!  The more options available to me when I finally have the funds in hand, will make my decision of what to buy a bit easier.

Kudos to Steyr for the new barrel threading, but please continue to give us more options!!!  Smiley

I really don't understand why they're unable to offer 1x7 barrels.

For majority of civilian users 1:9 is just fine...up to 69gr or so...now 1:12 would be just ridiculous.

Well 70 grain keyholes out of a 1x9 barrel, and the TSX and GMX rounds in 70 gr. are some of the most optimum available.

Not really.  Any civilian who intends to eventually put more than 2000 rounds their their AUG over its life, is going to encounter >69 gr ammo that they are going to want to shoot.  Hell, 1/9 won't even stabilize Hornady's 68 gr bullet if it's cool outside at all.  If folks want to split the difference, 1/8 is actually the most general twist today - i'd be fine with that.  But having rifles in my house that half my ammo won't function in is silly - I'll never buy a 1/9 twist again; and caution against it today.  5 years ago, I was 1/9.  but today - no.

So does anyone else shoot M193 exclusively, or am I just cheap and behind the times?  It's pretty neat that they're starting to offer different barrel threads, along with the Corvus partnership, they seem to be moving the right direction.

Nope i shoot wolf gold almost exclusively, occasionally I'll shoot xm193 military reject, and even less occasionally I'll shoot m855 if i can grab it on the cheap.  When you can catch wolf gold on sale for $250-265/case i see no reason not to stockpile it and shoot it because it shoot very well, so 1:9 doesnt bother me in the least and I'm one of those civilians who has put more than 2k rounds through my AUG

I only shot military ball out of my platforms...but all of mine are factory, non match rifles...so 1:9 or 1:7...makes no difference to me...

I only shot 55gr to 62gr out of my platforms and M80 ball from my 308 semi autos.

When punching paper anything will do.

When dispatching poodles don't be screwing around, get the job done effectively and efficiently with a barrier blind round with sufficient expansion and weight retention.

If by poodle you coyote, any round i would use for that will be just fine, and it will probably be 55gn wolf...thats kind of ironic  Grin

If by poodle you mean a poodle with antlers, i have a 308 or a 6.5CM that I will trust more than any 22cal

If by poodle you mean 2 legged poodles with the intent to do physical harm, i intend to have more than one hit on target barriers be damned

To be clear there is no competition to what a well designed hunting bullet or MK262 will do compared to m193 and 855, but i can stock pile both of those for excellent cost and will overcome any lapse in downrange performance with more volume if needed

If you are stockpiling the good ammo, good for you and your pocket is deeper than mine is

Lots of good points made already, but it just seems like a major oversight to not tweak the barrel twist to at least 1:8 if you're going to tweak the barrel thread to a more common offering.

And top of all of that, please just give me a 300BO barrel...please.

I could live with a 1x8. 1x9 is so 1980s.

That 64 grain sp looks like it'd be a winner in the current AUG barrels for sure.  I do wish they'd do a faster twist, but ya gotta work with what ya get.  Maybe they'll do a faster twist sometime but I would put money that they'd give us 1:7 in any barrel length we wanted then make it 131L threads again and we wouldn't be able to suppress the guns without dropping even more $$

I picked up a couple of 1x7x16" barrels from Pete, however he's currently out of stock on those.

I'd love to have a 1x7x20" barrel.

The Federal tactical bonded 62 gr. round (XM556FBIT3 aka Trophy Bonded Bear Claw) and the Winchester 64 gr. tactical bonded solid base (both FBI specs with sealed cases) have poor ballistic coefficients and are therefore not approaching MOA. However, they both get the job done extremely well (for the mouse caliber) upclose and personal with excellent expansion and weight retention.

Another vote for 1x8 twist barrel based on my experience with various bullet weights on my AR's. On my 16" 1x9 AUG, I have developed a sub MOA 4 legged critter load with 60gr V-Max and CFE powder that burns clean when running suppressed.
