"I like the aug a1 design which is why I bought this gun. I got it for $150 and think it should be priced at $135 based on performance.
Pros: 7mm steel bushings in sturdy gearbox.
Steel spring guide and gears.
Metal front assembly and strong polymer stock with rubber butt pad.
Very clear fully adjustable scope with crosshairs.
Good air compression in gearbox.
Cons: very weak single pitch spring attached to piston head.
1/2 stroke ported piston paired with a 509mm inner barrel.
Very thick, sticky orange grease on poorly shimmed gears.
Small battery space, only 8.4 mini will fit.
Poorly constructed hi-cap mag; loose in reciever, feeds poorly and the coil snapped.
Foregrip is wobbly.
Barely fires over 300 fps.
Poorly designed bucking. Mound is off-center and puts little back spin even with hop adjusted fully up.
All these issues can be fixed and I have besides the foregrip. Definitely not a good starter gun but a great
Project gun if you like the aug platform. I feel it is overpriced at full retail. "First thing, the advertised fps is innacurate. The manual says 328 fps and this is more accurate. That being said it has good range for the low velocity. The built in scope is great, crystal clear and fully adjustable. I have it zeroed in perfectly. The foregrip has significant play but if pulled toward you it is solid, or you can fold it flat which I usually do. The flash hider is thin plastic and can break easilly. The battery space is very tight but with a simple mod I put a 9.6v butterfly in it. Minus the spring the internals are impressive for the price. 7mm steel bushings, metal spring guide, double o-ring on cylinder head and great compression. The inner barrel needed a good cleaning and the grease used on the gears was some orange sticky gunk. It comes with an 8.4v small type battery and a high cap mag which is good for testing the gun out. The mag is low quality; the coil broke after running 900 rounds through it. Not a beginners gun but great for upgrading. "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. Read More Reviews Write a Review

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.
