It’s been a long time coming; Steyr [Mannlicher] Arms posted the above video nearly two years ago. On September 29, the Austrian gunmaker will formally introduce the civilian spec AUG/3 SA to the American public. The gun will make its debut at the bullpup hoedown throwdown at the Rockcastle Shooting Center in Park City, KY from Sept. 29-30. According to Steyr’s website [link autoplays video], the AUG/3 was “conceived to meet the state-of-the-art requirement of today’s sports.” In light of the controversy surrounding RECOIL magazine‘s “no sporting purpose” remarks about the H&K MP7A1, ha! Did I mention that I really, really want an AUG/3 on or before next August 3rd? I mean, did you see the reloading process? To quote Wallace (of Wallace and Gromit fame), that is clever.
