The 4 Best Steyr AUG Upgrades (on a Budget)

    Karl Vreski, German terrorist-thief and second in command to Hans Gruber, discusses his life since Die Hard. On this TFBTV Christmas special, Karl talks about the difficulties he had with his Steyr AUG during the Nakatomi Plaza job, and what he has done since his embarrassing defeat at the hands of John McClane to optimize his Austrian bullpup for 2020 and beyond. This rifle, when introduced in 1977, had a bad trigger, limited accessory options, and came with a strange 1.5x magnification optic as the standard configuration. How can we modernize this rifle for this current era?
