Anyone heard anything more about the new American made Steyr AUG copy the STG 556? Are they still having feeding problems? I went to their web page and they had a recall on the guns and mags. What are they selling for? They were supposed to be below $2K.

Check over on AK47.net

Looks like guys started receiving their rifles just two weeks ago.

I googled "MSAR STG 556" and happened upon links to the threads.

Called about the rifles today. They had a Shot Show promotion for the rifle with a case, knife, three or four mags for $2K. Now that they've released the rifles the price is up to $2.5K for the promo pack and the rifle by itself is $2.1K. Guess they have some Shot Show promo's left over they are trying to move.

$2500 seems pricey. What's a real Steyr AUG going for these days?

This one (a real AUG but the civilian version) was imported into NZ from Germany in July,it cost the equivalent of around $4000 US.That was the dealer price for a new AUG in Germany.

You know it seems that with the cost of guns skyrocketing there is going to be less guns sold thus creating a sort of gun control. The Libs must be happy with the current market trends.

Plus 1 there.

Are the Dealers trying to put themselves out of business or is there just that much demand?? Seems like a decent pistol anymore is in the upwards to a $1000 range these days.

I'd say these guy's have spent a ton of money with the design, facilities and tooling to set up production of these. With the way inflation is now that's probably not an unreasonable price. It's just a little more than I would want to pay. If they were in the $1.5K range I'd be sorely tempted.The dedicated magazine also hurts it for me but, someone has a stock kit in Shotgun news that takes AR mags for about $400.00.
Maybe they will come down a bit when they get some of their money back on their investment. I've never shot one and would hate to pay that much to find out that I didn't feel comfortable firing the rifle.
