Hey question. So I recently saw TFBTV's video about the Australian documents showing the performance of the Steyr Aug compared to a m16 style rifle. I was curious if you guys have seen the video and what your thoughts on it where. Im not an expert on guns but I've always thought about getting a bullpup, however I have an AR because it's just common in the us and easy to aquire parts and ammo for. The steyer uses the 5.56 round and some can accept ar mags, but good luck finding parts. It seems easier to maintain as well, with it's modular barrel. What do you all think? https://youtu.be/_9NF99PG_M0

Message permalink: 706278483818577972
The AUG is a fine gun, although its a bullpup and has its own inherent problems. Saying something is better than the AR15 is nonsense though, the AUG is a specific rifle made by one company, the AR15 is not.

Oh that makes sense. That's a good point

The AUG is one of the best bullpup rifles out there. But in comparison to the AR, it lacks.

ARs can perform just as well, just as reliably, and with more modularity.
