Shot a CIII Aug a few decades ago - I get the bull pup thing but I was seriously put off by the unburned powder hitting me in the face when I was shooting it - 20 years after the fact THAT is what I remember about the gun.

I stand corrected. I was wrong. The gun still sucks IMHO.

Its sexy as hell and was one of the first rifles to come with an optic. Not to mention a quick change barrel. Not many rifles can go from micro carbine to squad automatic weapon with only changing the barrel.

That said I despise the Austrian government. Those Fuqs were under the table selling arms to both sides in Yugoslavia. They helped get US Soldiers killed, not to mention they sold weapons plans to Iranians that ended up used against US Soldiers in Iraq.

The AUG is still a good weapon but in my opinion the Tavor is a much more ergonomic and battle proven rifle. Shame you cant quick change the Tavor barrels.

I really like my AUG A2 and will make sure its one of the rifles my son gets. Daughter will get the Tavor.
