Armee-Universal-Gewehr (Universal Army Rifle) or AUG is a futuristic assault rifle developed during the 1960s 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 1970s.
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 todays modern combat rifles.History:
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.

"So far, so good. Only had it a few days, but we did go airsofting with it yesterday. My son used the AUG and he thought it was decent. It said it was accurate, ROF was good. The dual stage (semi/full auto) trigger really helped too.
Weight-wise, it's a bullpup. All the weight is at the back of the gun - and that may or may not be your thing.
Build-wise, it looks good. The plastics look and feel good - and the metal pieces look well made. The integrated scope works nicely.
The only negative i can think of is the rubber butt pad is a PITA to take off and put on.
All in all, it's fun, good looking, attention-seeking bullpup - and definitely worth a try.
"Absolutely love this gun!! I utterly destroy my opposition when I go airsofting, Its a great med-range AEG, and whenever I pull it out people just flock to it, wanting to hold it. I was quite surprised to see so many people jealous of my AUG, Would differently buy this gun if your looking for something to buy. Would recommend buying extra mags, b/c you'll run out of BBs fast with this gun, also the mag that it came with broke (magazine spring coil broke) so having extras wouldn't hurt.
