Lately I have been receiving quite a few emails asking what made me choose the AUG over the Tavor. As much as I love receiving and replying to emails (since the emails I get are tenfold more intelligent than YouTube comments), I decided to just do a post about it to answer most of the questions. But really, if you email me I will still reply, with tender, tender love.
Something that I have definitely not been able to find much on, is the mechanical accuracy of the Steyr AUG. Being rather anal retentive, and a reloader, I decided to work up some loads for it and see for myself what the mechanical accuracy capability of the AUG A3 was. Needless to say, everything went better than expected!
So after the last trip out with the AUG, I definitely knew I had to do something about the trigger. To date, that was my biggest complaint about the rifle. After a bit of research I ordered the New-Trigger for it.
Before I get an email about it, yes, the date in the title does not match the date of this article being published. It has been a busy month thus far, and a bit of a backlog has built up. That being said, here is the update on the AUG at 1,700 rounds, and various other musings. Just as a warning, there are a few graphic images of dead varmints below.
This week I reached 500 rounds since the last cleaning of the AUG. I wish I could say it was without issue, but, there were some problems functioning with the Hornady 75gr steel cased training ammo.
Today The Giant Ginger and I hit the range, and did a bit of accuracy testing with the AUG. He also put it through its paces, loaned me an ACOG, and provided a smorgasbord of ammunition to see how this thing shoots and functions. Let's see how it did!
