    Steyr AUG FAQ and Helpdesk

    All of them are like that, including the TM civilian. I fixed it on mine by actually milling the top corner off of the receiver and RIS so optics could get a proper grip under. I should have an A3 RIS set, but I am moving this weekend so I have other priorities fpr the next few days. PM me in a week or so and I should be able to dig through my things to see.

    Nice link. There is some good info there.

    I use scotch tape on the end of my inner barrel to stabilize it in the outer. It slides nicely without bunching as long as you cut it nice and clean, aka use scissors instead of the dispenser. As far as the differences in the barrels go, it is really hard to say as there are a number of factors that can impact accuracy. What other variables are involved? Bucking, nub, etc... Are they Rhopped? Was the lapping done correctly?

    I have successfully used the JB Weld epoxy putty to secure T-nuts in place of those broken body tabs. It should be stronger in the long run.

    I don't think you can really wear the magwell out. It could be a problem with the feed nipple. It is held in place in a sort of plastic sandwich with a couple of screws. I have had that plate separate in my AUG before, allowing the nipple to not engage the mag properly. It could also be the alignment of the plate that houses the nipple. It is fairly simple to make your own out of plastic or aluminum. The top section is the important part where it pushes the back of the gearbox and screws to the body. the rest of it can be ignored. This leaves a fairly simple shape with two holes drilled for the screws.

    JG stock air nozzles are longer than Marui spec, so most of the aftermarket ones will be shorter than stock. The blue Classic Army ones are pretty close.

    They are cloning the MSAR STG556, which is a U.S. made AUGalike. Notice the fluted barrel, charging handle, textured stock and rail placement. I wish they would just make the AUG A3 SA instead of these. The extra rail space isn't even in a useful location. I am, however, curious to take a look at their barrel assemblies to see if they are any better than the TM/JG/CA 3 piece wet noodle. *edit* Nevermind, just saw the barrel assemblies sold on evike, same old 3 part garbage.

    My set of King Arms are terrible, pretty much unusable with most ammo. If you are going mids for the AUG, the MAG are vastly superior.

    The newer JG's have much improved texture as well.

    Lonex, JG Blue, ZCI,...any of those should be fine. If you are in the U.S. you should check out www.clandestineairsoft.com and www.brillarmory.com. It is pretty hard to beat those guys for price and service on upgrade parts.

    I wouldn't bother with torque gears, just get a High Torque neo motor and you will be able to run a 130 no problem with those JG gears, better trigger response than high ratio gears as well.

    The JG is based on an old aftermarket conversion kit. It would be easiest to design for the HC, but you would still need the barrel/gas adjustment from one of the other AUGs. And there are many, many more A1/A2/A3s out there as a potential market.

    @DamnLion - The reason the A3 CQC style AUGs that are out there now suck so bad is because they are adapting to the A1 receiver. I think it is not worth the effort, better to make an accurate version and let the people who care do the mods. @Mike Obrien - The Turnigy Nano Airsoft Batteries at Hobby King that are similar in dimension to the small NiMH will all fit just fine. That is what I use in mine, both 7.4v and 11.1v.

    @DamnLion. I would prefer that you just print the A3 rail and let people modify their existing uppers. That way you avoid the incompatibility issues with TM/JG/CA uppers. Cutting off the carryhandle/rail portion of the upper and drilling a couple of holes to attach the new rail should be easily accomplished, especially if you provide means to center the rail and locate the position for the holes.

    @Mike Obrien. A properly installed R-Hop will work with any weight BB, quality heavier ammo just has better accuracy potential at range. I have used mine with 0.20g and 0.12g extensively in CQB. R-Hops are also not any more sensitive to FPS variation than any other hop method. Good air seal is typically the first step in consistency. The only AUG hop specific issue I had with the R-Hop is cutting the thickness of the M-nub down (Evenly) to work with the hop arm.The install in the barrel is the same for everything unless you are getting into the ER-hop, in which case you need to consider if your hop unit will be able to provide even pressure to the extended patch.
