So I hear that Steyr has set up a shop in the good Ole US of A and is now selling real Steyr Augs for around $1800 retail.

I bet all the rip off/copy cat company's are not happy about this!

I'll try to get more info.

at $1800 they'll sell every one they can make...
wouldn't you hate to have paid $4000 last year?

They were announced at SHOT this year, and have been on the market since probably March.
MSRP I think is well north of $1,800 though, round $2,300 I think.
There's quite a few on GB sitting with no bids at $2k-$2.5k.
Couple did sell last night on there in no reserve, dollar start auctions for seventeen or eighteen hundred each though.
In a few months I think that will be the going rate.

There are 3 of them on a gun store shelf here with a retail of $2300 plus tax.
They'll have to sit there a bit longer at that price.
They do look very nice.

They seem to retail here at around $2000.

Most of the function critical parts and the stock sets are Austrian Steyr produced. Sabre produces barrels, mags and enough parts to make the A3s 922 compliant.

Hope they don't cut the corners like SIG USA did.

I think the kind of people that pay top dollar for things like SCARs and AUGs right when they come out are perfectly fine spending several thousand just to get that warm fuzzy feeling of being the first to have it for a few months.

I can't understand it, but God bless em, they effectively pay for some of our stuff.

I think he meant paying 4 grand for an original Stery made A1 or A2, compared to the new Stery/US made A3 for half that. So far all the word this summer is that the A3's are solid rifles.

Of course, I paid a little over two grand for a minty A1 and can't fathom paying more for one... but then I look at my bizarre FAL expenditures and realize it all has to do with what you're into...

I have an original Black A1 and two of the new A3s new(one for sale). Id say the new A3 is every bit as good as the full Austrian ones plus you have the rail....

Yes, I like my MSAR, original AUG is fine too. Although w/ MSAR newer E4 version, AR mags and front / rear sight can be used. Plus the conversion for different calibers like 5.45, 7.62x39 and 6.8- only w/ E-4.

So, AUG A3, if you want something original: AUG mag.

MSAR, if you want options for different type of AR mags: Pmag/GI/HK, and calibers.

And, if you are worried about parts, no reason not to buy them since they are available.

The AUG "NATO" stock conversion/hammer pack fits the A3 if you want to use your AR mags. My wife insisted on it for hers: she hates waffle-pattern mags (it's a girl thing). No caliber conversions that I'm aware of, however.
