Steyr AUG/A3 SA production stopped last October

    I received an email from Steyr’s PR person saying that the Steyr AUG/A3 SA (civilian US model) production was stopped in October last year. The recently bankrupt Sabre Defence was manufacturing the rifle under license from Steyr.

    This is very sad news. So many people were looking forward to this rifle for so long and in less than two years it has gone out of production.
