"Purchased this rifle with with fairly low expectations but sadly came away very dissatissfied.
ASG specific notes: you are paying a significant premium for a low resolution decal print that says "Steyr Mannlicher". If you are into the JG, just get the JG which is 20-30% less depending on when you are looking on evike.
Rifle notes: Despite adjustment, the scope cross-hairs do not line up with BB travel, AT ALL. Crosshairs aim about 4' to the right at 50' after full adjustment (my rifle shoots heavily to the left). The scope is just simply too far out of adjustment and there is not enough range in the adjustment to compensate. Solution: get the non A1 version... hope that the rail is straight enough that a 3rd party scope will align correctly.
Hop up unit came apart after the first game after ~1500 BBs. The retaining ring, and the hop up adjustment ring both fell out upon removal of the front barrel unit. I removed the barrel to try to see why it keeps shooting to the left. Upgrade to a GP hop up when buying the gun. $30 premium.
BBs easily get stuck in the body of the gun, you must constantly jiggle and shake the gun to get rid of loose BBs. Not aware if solution, One bb got stuck behind the trigger system and required heavy mid-game jiggling to remove.
The iron sights don't line up with the cross hairs and don't line up with the barrel. No solution.
Other build issues - the safety and receiver toggles can both easily be pushed out of the stock - nothing really keeps them in. They are finicky once out and annoying to put back in. "I love the AUG platform. I think it looks great, functions well, and is just overall a great gun. I bought this AEG for the above reasons, but I was disappointed when I received the gun. First off, it completely fell apart the moment I took it out of the box. For some reason, the pin that holds it all together had been put in up-side-down, and just kinda slid right out. It was a simple fix, but it did not inspire confidence.
As stated in the product description, it is a full plastic body, with metal interior and barrel assembly. That's fine, but the gun doesn't have that sturdy feel to it. The front hand guard is EXTREMELY wobbly, almost to the point that its useless. I found it better to play with it folded up just because it felt so unreliable. The integrated scope is nice, and it is 1.5x magnification, but I never used it. With almost any mask on, it was impossible to get my head down low enough to see through it.
As far as performance, it was okay. The hop up needs to be played with if you want to hit anything past 60-70 feet. Rate of fire was great... but only with 9.6v battery. The only problem is that the battery compartment is absolutely tiny! I bought a custom 9.6v "AUG battery" brick that was supposedly designed to fit in the AUG's, but no dice. The rubber butt plate wouldn't even go half way on with it in. The only thing that fits is an 8.4v small type brick battery. And with the 8.4v, the rof is mediocre at best, and it didn't hit very hard.
Overall, its not a terrible gun, but for the price, I expected it to be a bit better. I felt like I had to baby it on the field, which isn't what anyone wants to do while playing. I am not trying to rag on the gun, but I am just trying to give potential buyers a realistic idea of the Pros and Cons. Like I said, its not a terrible gun, but you can get better for cheaper. "Got this gun awhile ago, and it works great!

ASG Licensed Steyr AUG A1 Airsoft AEG Rifle w/ Military Style Scope
The ASG Steyr AUG is a Steyr licensed rifle with Tokyo Marui designed system resulting one of the best Airsoft AUG AEG rifle for both Airsoft mil-sim gamers and collectors. This full size AUG rifle inherited the "best for Airsoft" bullpup design where the shooter holds the rifle right in the center for not only a balanced weight, easy mag change, longer inner barrel but also a compact range gun all at the same time for CQB. The bullpup design is not the most popular in the real fire-arm world because the shell would eject, heat up or even explode in the shooter's face; but as an Airsoft, bullpup rifles are PERFECT! The Steyr AUG is the length of a common M4 but equipped with a 509mm inner barrel (accuracy and range of an M16!)
Armee-Universal-Gewehr (Universal Army Rifle) or AUG is a futuristic assault rifle developed during the 1960’s in Austria to replace the aging 7.62mm FAL automatic rifles in service at the time. Often considered as “the first successful bullpup rifle”, the AUG was indeed well ahead of its time as far as concept and design; it was highly advanced when it first went into service in the late 1970’s.
Its bullpup design which moves the core of the rifles action behind the trigger allows for the use of a full length rifle barrel in a weapon with the ergonomics of a sub-machine gun. Some other significant features include fully ambidextrous controls and reversible charging handle and shell ejection port allowing the rifle to be configured for both left and right handed shooters. The unique two stage trigger allows the user to fire in semi-auto and full-auto without needing to manipulate a selector switch; for semi-automatic fire, the operator will just pull the trigger half way and if fully-automatic fire was necessary, the operator needs to only pull the trigger all the way back.
Chambered in the 5.56x45mm NATO cartridge for its ease of use and handling, the futuristic family of rifles in the AUG line can be quickly adapted to accommodate a wide variety of roles in the ever changing battlefield with just a quick swap of the barrel. The AUG is definitely a well-rounded combat weapon with a proven track record that can stand its own even with today’s modern combat rifles.
The Steyr AUG was designed as a family of rifles that could be quickly adapted to a wide variety of roles with the change of the barrel to a desired length and profile, among which are: a compact 350 mm (13.8 in) barrel, 407 mm (16.0 in) carbine barrel, 508 mm (20.0 in) standard rifle-length barrel, and 621 mm (24.4 in) light machine gun barrel. The AUG is a modular, bullpup configuration rifle that employs a high level of synthetic and advanced alloy components.
