    The executive summary from the 1985 Australian Army Colt M-16 vs. Steyr AUG trials.

    In this episode of TFBTV, James Reeves goes over seven reasons (OK, really just six) that the Steyr AUG bullpup is better than the AR-15/M-16/M4 carbine. Relying a little on personal experience but mostly on an intense 1985 weapons trial put on by the Australian Army, James tells you how the AUG bests the mighty M-16. The 1985 trial between the Colt M16A2 and the Steyr AUG A1 pitted the two venerable rifles against the other in mud dunks, dust storms, sand dragging, rainstorms, and other forms of government-funded torture-testing.

    Even though the original 1985 T&E report was declassified in June 2019, the .pdf was split up into three non-OCR disorganized volumes interspersed with blank pages. James has OCR’d (made the document searchable) and combined the report, organized it, and eliminated the blank pages.
