I would like to have a copy, but it looks they aren't sending any to the US.

An english version does not exist. Hopefully it's in the works, but Steyr Austria hasn't responded to anyone that's inquired, myself included. Steyr USA wasn't able to provide any additional context either. The only option is to import a German copy, which I did. It's a phenomenal book, and if you're an AUG fan you definitely need it. Don't know German? You can use a camera translation app to get you by. It's not perfect, but it works well enough until an English version comes out (hopefully).

Where did you order one from?  I cannot find any location to place an order.

You'll have to email them to work out payment and shipping options to US as their site isn't really set up for it.

No, the book is more technical focused on the history and development rather being an instruction manual. There is mention of some of the 3x scopes options but not too much beyond that. Interestingly the first scopes they experimented with on some of the early prototypes were 3x. The 1.5x came later. The A3 M1 by name isn't covered in the book, however the A3 SF is. The only difference being full auto capability.
