    Steyr AUG FAQ and Helpdesk

    I've got my AUG set up to hang form my left shoulder (since I shoot predominately leftie) with an SA80 sling. Works lovely, just switch the rear sling swivel to the other side of the gun!

    Steyr AUG FAQ and Helpdesk

    yup, mine too, simply replaced the entire internal CA magwell with the equivalent TM parts (and a metal nozzle) I've not had a JG AUG, but I have noticed my TM uppers don't fit well into the CA body - it's a struggle to get them to sit down the last mil or so and allow the catch to engage... They're not particaulrly realistic, they just have the Steyr logo added(which I will happily admit I like on there). RS trades here: http://albums.pixagogo.com/Photos/Albums/Photo.aspx?id=S4YIr9akNPlXxYtpdnOJ5QslRAC4DvjuQdzkunuGbeRlnx2ebKbHrutnEPjlz3MQTK I couldn't agree more about the scope, the TM scope is awful, I only have one out of a sense of geeky collectorness!

    Steyr AUG FAQ and Helpdesk

    MY CA has 6mm bushings, but it's from a early batch so it may have changed over time.... Internally, the CA and TM models are identical and fully interchangeable. The only major difference between the boxes is the CA gearbox has a different sliding plate on top with a different way of mounting the ejector cover (better than the TM design imo).

    There's a brief description of how I do it on page 2 of the STANAG AUG link in my sig...

    You could also try removing the fusebox or relocating it to the other side of the retention plate to maximise the space in the battery compartment...

    Steyr AUG FAQ and Helpdesk

    Should be easy enough... I'll give you the same deal I gave Hedge when I asked me to experiment with long standard mags - send me a mag and I'll try it - if it works out you get a free shorty mag, if it doesn't work then you're down a mag. Simples! Though aren't they the low capacity mags from then the Assault Rifle Ban was in force in the US rather than sniper mags?

    Steyr AUG FAQ and Helpdesk

    1. Best ask Hedge! 2. There's no commercial one - Doc did a custom one for Hedge and it's a a fairly easy job to run a barrel up on a lathe. The magwell is doable, but again, not commercially produced. 3. How many do you want? There's no commercially produced ones but I do make 'em (500 rounds + 50 up the spout) http://www.arniesairsoft.co.uk/forums/inde...t&p=1728592 4. Haven't a clue about that I'm afraid. 6 AUGs you say? feel free to peruse the wanted thread in my sig... Am looking for the parts to get no. 3 up and running. In other news, I've started casting the A2 charging handles, only a few for the time being, and currently only in black resin. Hedge and Shriven, do either of ye want one?

    Steyr AUG FAQ and Helpdesk

    Looking for some gearbox parts (mostly AUG specific) - check out the link in my sig. In other news, I'll be making the mould for the A2 charging handle tomorrow, expect to see test castings soon, though not 100% on when I'll be able to supply finished ones...

    Yup, hot water, colt water, wear it dry etc - it holds it's shape while sitting on the table, never mind on me head! Guess it likes to misbehave for the camera! I reckon I knocked it with the gun's sling... How and ever, sooner or later I'll get good pics!

    I told you not to mention it... For the record it IS properly shaped (or adequately at any rate) my only guess is I mess it up while donning my kit for the photoshoot....
