Remember the Stery AUG in 9mm we posted 4 years ago? Well it looks like we’re able to get AUG bullpups here in the US afterall. Steyr is selling factory 9mm conversion kits over at SteyrArms.com. The kit works with all semi-auto models and comes with a barrel, bolt carrier group, mag adapter, one 25 round magazine and a dedicated 9mm stock. They retail for $1,499.

    I was thinking this was awesome until I saw the price. Lemme guess, extra magazines are $200 a pop, right?

    • iksnilol

      If you are handy with tools convert it to take UZI or Sten mags.

      • Sulaco

        And there for destroy the re-sale value?

        • iksnilol

          like you are gonna sell it. Besides, it is just an advantage except for the hardcore collector.

          Why did people turn into such Safety Suzies?

          • Sulaco

            Work + time from your life = money. Spend it wisely..

  • Clodboy

    You regularly see those in the hands of the WEGA (Vienna’s SWAT unit) and GEK Cobra (Austria’s equivalent to the GSG9). Strangely enough, it seems that whenever they’re breaching a door, all they are carrying is a Glock 17.

    • Nathanael S.

      Or it’s a Glock print ad…
      But seriously, I thought the same thing when the Tavor came out with a 9mm conversion. You could literally buy 3 Kel Tec Sub2ks or 4 Hi Point carbines for the price of one bullpup conversion kit, with the same ballistic results. Outrageous.

  • Geoff a well known Skeptic

    I can buy two or three AR-15 pattern rifles for the price of the Adapter? Geoff Who don’t tink zo.

    • iksnilol

      They need to reduce the price a bit. probably are made in Europe due to the high price.

  • wetcorps

    I shot one, once. I remember it being awfully unbalanced.
    I’m usually not a fan of front grips, but in this case you need it to prevent the gun from tiping upward.

    Still cool nonetheless :)

    • JumpIf NotZero

      Own one, I wouldn’t say it’s unbalanced. I don’t have an A3 so that might be different but they’re really quite nice as far as bullpup 556 goes, but they aren’t $1500 9mm kit nice.

      • wetcorps

        The original 5.56 version is better balanced thanks to the longer, heavier barrel and the cantilevered scope.

  • Michael R. Zupcak

    Isn’t the stock considered the receiver? Might as well just have a dedicated unit for 9mm if it’s already $1500 for the kit.

    • JumpIf NotZero

      No, the receiver is considered the receiver. The stock on the AUG is just a plastic part. The receiver doesn’t change.

  • gunslinger

    if it’s a custom stock, why do you need a mag adapter?

  • Dan-O

    Figure in the opportunity cost for an alternative 9mm carbine at $1500… wtf are you smoking Steyr? Stop this BS and give me a civi-legal F90 upgrade!

  • erwos

    Yet another example of Steyr having no clue about the market. The competition has a $800-$900 9mm conversion kit that doesn’t sell terribly well, so what does Steyr do? Bring in at 50% more, and use mags no one has.

    At some point, Steyr is going to need to face up to the fact that the Tavor is a WAY better value proposition for the American consumer, and adjust their prices accordingly. The AUG A3 is a great rifle, but the design is finally starting to feel its age in terms of ergonomics. Not a bad run, but it’s time to start investing more in it.

    • mechamaster

      They need to lowered the conversion kit price and then create a common high-capacity magazine adapter like glock-magazine for example.

      • FourString

        Even the Uzi mag would make more sense than the proprietary one they’ve got going on.

    • iksnilol

      I mainly would like to see them make an ambidextrous stock. Like TroubleShooterBerlin made, too bad they don’t want to talk with him.

      After that a magwell conversion and some different bolts (6.5 grendel and 7.62x39mm for instance) would be great.

      I surely enjoy my Tavor with the 9mm conversion. It’s a heck of a lot of fun! It’s also simple to change out.

  • dan citizen

    seriously, couldn’t they manage to create a conversion that required less parts?

  • Jack

    Hmm…a .300BLK conversion would require only a quick change barrel, correct? If that round is ascending the popularity index as quickly as my friends would have me believe, then maybe that single-part, five-second on the fly conversion capability would be a smart move to bolster against Tavor advantage?

    • iksnilol

      Would be a good move.

  • valorius

    I did not even know you could buy an aug in the US.
