View Full Version : MSAR .223 or 5.56

April 27, 2010, 13:47
I've been considering buying an MSAR AUG clone in the next few months, and have been checking them out online, however, the listings show them being chambered for .223, and one add as 5.56. Which is it, the .223, or the 5.56?

And can the factory optic be swapped out for a rail?

I'm pretty sure mine has 5.56 on the barrel. I'll check when I get home. Yes you can swap the optic with a rail, or just get one with the rail to start with.

mine is 5.56 if i remember correctly.

CDNN had them for $1000.00 a short time ago. no optic. I already had one, or I would have bought from them.

5.56 1/8. This is a 20" barrel.

I have a msar stg556 20", and the gun will shoot both 5.56 or 223 with no problems.
However stay away from steel ammo with this gun.

Thanks for the feedback, I have the current CDNN catalog, they still have them listed at $1000.
