Steyr AUG NATO conversion kit review

EmptorMaven has reviewed the NATO conversion kit for the Steyr AUG SA. The kit allows the use of STANAG (AR-15) magazines.

Steyr has always offered the NATO version as an option to military customers, but no country, as far as I know, has chosen to adopt it over the standard AUG.

    Will this work on the Microtech AUG copy?

      @Mad Saint Jack Mad, I don't think so. The Microtech is not compaible internally with the AUG (or so I have been told ... Microtech are a company who refuse to discuss their products with me)

    Will the conversion work with the metal(i.e., aluminum or steel) mags or just the plastic ones?
