The New Black AUSTEYER EF88

    Bob sent in this photo he saw on the Australian Army Facebook page. The soldier pictured is from the 3rd Brigade of the Royal Australian Regiment and is using the new Thales AUSTEYER EF88 which has many improvements over the old Steyr AUG. These includes rails, removal of the old 1.5x built-in scope, less weight and more reliable internals. 

    The NZ Army recently decided to ditch the original Steyr AUG and switched to the an LMT AR-15.
