Pete, I remember looking Steyr Aug for sale in 1991 at the gun store.  Always regret not getting one.

Would those have had the 20" Barrel?

The scope on these 40 year version, will be like the original, i.e. "The donut of death" 1.5" reticle?

Thanks.

That right there is my primary reason for jumping on this, I love the original reticle and slim scope.
IMO Steyr disgraced the AUG with that railed abomination of a scope on the A3M1.
The 3x magnification is nice, I can even live with the crosshairs, but the rails......  Tongue. Ugh!

I've seen a few 'forum rumors' in the past few months that asserted Steyr is going to be offering the original style slim scopes for the A3M1, does anyone know if this is true? I would gladly retrofit mine in a heartbeat.

I told them I want to order some, I have quite a few customers that would like to have the slim scope.

I should be able to get some right after the STG77 comes in.

Yes, put me on that list as well please.

Pete, think you misunderstood my question before.  Did the Steyr Augs for sale in 1991 come with 20" barrels as standard?    The 20" barrels were standard as well for most of the military issue Augs also, correct? 

Interesting, looking at the specs, is that an AUG with a 20" barrel is still shorter than a M-4, stock fully extended,  with a 14.5" barrel by almost 2 inches.   If I am reading the specs right.

Yes all the green AUGs that were imported came with a 20" barrel.

The 16s came out on the Black Police AUGs in early 89

20" AUG is 31" OAL

Sh*t......I just saw this....and have an A3M1 coming from Pete to my FFL on Monday!

Would've made a much better candidate (less to do) to turn into an F88SA2 homage rifle than the A3M1.... Oh well   Sad

Circle-dot isn't the original original reticle. It's just like the "donut of death" but it has a very small center dot. In my opinion it's a much better reticle design than the solitary donut.

I'm assuming that these use the old style scope tube design and not the newer tube design. If that's the case then you could swap tubes with a swarovski donut of death scope tube - providing you can acquire one.


Circle-dot:

I would like that.  Would have the quick target acquisition the "Donut of Death" had, for CQB, but the center dot would allow more accuracy for longer ranges or zeroing.

On the newer 1.5" scopes, on the M-1 versions, the dot or crosshairs limits a little bit of accuracy as well. Though I still get very tight groups at 50/100 meters.  Just use the cross hairs, to the edge of the circle and kind of hard to explain, but just kind of envision them in the center of the circle.

Pete , have you heard anything on receivers coming up for sale as stand alone items ? Either these or M1 receivers ?

Working on it real hard! Getting parts from Austria to make spare receivers seem to be the problem!

I will keep you guys posted, hopefully it will happen soon.

Thanks,
Pete

I'm IN for a standalone receiver, I've been waiting for one so i can make a dedicated 9mm gun.

No Sir, Swarovski hasn't made any optics for Steyr since the USR in 97.

I wonder if this means that there will also be non-anniversary AUG A1s as well, in addition to the limited run 40th anniversary-marked ones?

No there won't be any non-anniversary AUG A1s, so that is the word from Steyr.

Just a run of 400 then back to the standard A3 style stocks, charging handles, etc.

I would like to see the skinny scopes continued in production as options though.
