AUGtober is here and Steyr Arms USA have 24″ barrels with the folding bipod for the Steyr AUG. These are only available in limited quantity.
You can select the fore grip color in either Black, Green or Mud. Even white is available in the rare case you should own a Starship Trooper AUG.
The regular price is 749 USD but during October, sorry AUGtober, there is a 15% discount so you get away with 636 USD.
Below: Without knowing, it’s hard to guess what this is.
As the barrel is not of a free floating type I’m very curious as to how the AUG, especially with the 24″ barrel with a bipod at one end, will react if you put any sort of pressure on it. If it’s anything what I think you would have to be very, very gentle to avoid even the slightest offset.
But the Steyr AUG does look rather cool with the 24″ barrel and bipod, and who wouldn’t like to have a bullpup sniper rifle? Perhaps time to upgrade the stock optics then, as well?
24″ inches barrel length for a .223 Remington is pretty long, but the standard length is actually 20″ down to 13.8″ for the Sub-carbine. I can’t find any information about rifling.

Do you have any experience with the 24″ (or other barrel lengths) AUGs and how they shoot?
