Sabre Defence has announced that they are in the final production stages of the new, civilian legal Steyr AUG. If you click that link, it will take you to the Sabre Defence press release on the production of the Steyr AUG. If you go to Steyr’s website, you can see a picture of the new rifle, which I’ve reproduced here as well.
Myself, I think it’s a cool looking gun, but I’ve never been a huge fan of bullpup style rifles, once you get past the “hey that’s neat looking” factor. Sure, I like that you can get more barrel into a smaller space with a bullpup, and the AUG has pretty good ergonomics for a bullpup gun.
Bottom line though is that if you’re the kind of guy who bought a Walther G22 just because it was a bullpup, you know have a chance to own a genuine Steyr AUG, the “king” of bullpup rifles.*
*Yes, I know about the SA80 in England, but good luck getting that in a civilian version.
