Ok I figure I'll show off my incomplete collection of AUGs.

My objective is to have my collection be a hommage to the F88 family, so it means I'm likely going to sell/trade the A3/A3CQC, and A1(904 Series) that you see below.

A3/A3CQC - Will likely look to sell - Will come with black mags and all original rail and black parts to restore to A3 config. should someone wish to.

Pre-Ban: A2 (902 series)+ADI A2 receiver and rail (F88SA1 Hommage). Can't use the ADI receiver legally unfortunately, hence the genuine A2 - But the ADI/F88SA1 rail works perfectly on the Austrian A2 receiver. Need's an OD barrel release button and A1 style charging handle (Downgrade). Closed flash hider and bayonet lug. (Extra points to those that pick out the ELCAN knobs are on the wrong side for it to be an Aussie mount - if only I could get one..)

Pre-Ban: A1 (904 series) - Open prong flash hider. Floating donut reticle. Will likely sell/Trade.

Pre-Ban: A1 (905 series) Closed flash hider, updated bolt carrier, cross-hairs to donut reticle. With the addition of a bayonet lug this will be as close to an F88 as I can make it. (Bayonet is one of the rare genuine Buck M9's with the CoA Broad Arrow)

Next up will be an F88SA2 hommage based on an A3M1 which I'll add one of my F88SA2 style rails (if and when I ever finish them), bayonet lug, remove and fill the side pic rail and cerakote. It will have the added "bonus" of a bolt release, and wrong FH+Checknut...(unless someone starts making enough US AUG components for me to use my ADI receiver to make a 922r AUG A2...)

I'm using the A3 to test/validate CAD/3D printed models I have for F88SA1, and SA2 style rails and side mounts. I also will validate a variant on the A2 and on an A3M1 as they are both the right config (still having the receiver beak). Once the models are validated I'll get a few- machined out of 6061 for real use.

Very nice!
Now I don't feel so bad having three.

Totally sweet!! Thanks for sharing. When you're ready to sell, I'm interested.
Where'd you learn so much about AUG's? I love them, but haven't found any good books on them.

Thanks for the kind words. I wouldn't go so far as to say I know a lot about AUGs. What I do know is from a few years of use as a 'choco' soldier (Reservist) in the Australian Army (along with the associated PAM), and the rest is from reading bullpupforum, and the Bullpup section of AR15.com, along with other things I've picked up from the internet.

As for the differences with the F88's there's a few DSTO presentations online, and defence.gov.au has a plethora of hi-res photo's for one to pour over and dust off cobwebs, and do some straightforward reverse engineering.

Very nice collection- I've always found the AUG to be interesting. Thanks for sharing

Great collection!

Why can't you legally use the ADI receiver (e.g., with a U.S.-made stock and various 922r parts)?

Keep us updated on this, here and the other boards.

I just saw your ADI A2 receiver. I have one of the Steyr A2 factory replacement receivers that Pete Athens provided back in the day. I don't know how many exist, but he sent a bunch of A1 receivers back to Austria for Steyr factory service. What came back were A2 receivers that replaced the "damaged" A1 receivers. All these A2 receivers were Steyr factory made with the serial numbers of the A1 receivers that they replaced.

At the time, I picked up a dinged up 16" black 907 series AUG. I sent the receiver to Pete Athens who forwarded it to Austria and sent the barrel and bolt carrier to Lauer for refinishing. I then picked up a new black semi auto stock assembly. So I now have a legal black 16" A2 AUG with completely matching serial numbers. I just put it away and never fired it.

Yeah I believe so. They were brought in as repair/replacements so to use it I'd need to have an A1/A2/USR receiver legitimately destroyed and documented - so I believe.

If there were enough US made components available I suspect it could be used to build a parts gun and be 922(r) compliant. At this stage I think the most that could be scrounged would be a H/T/S (3), US made mags (assuming the body, follower and baseplate were US made) could add another 3, and then the barrel+flash hider would make another (2) a total of Gas piston would be (1). So that's 9 US made parts.

I'm not sure what the minimum US made content is for the AUG. It's not super clear on what parts of the A3/A3M1 are US made besides the receiver and barrel.

Very nice collection of AUGs. If your serious about selling that A3CQC at some point I would be very interested. Thanks.
