Ugly little bastards but they have grown on me since I shot an AUG at the range and now I'm thinking of cutting off the tip of my dick, wearing a kippah, growing a beard and getting a Tavorah.
The main thing that bothered me was the trigger on it, is there any way to fix it, I know they sell triggers but how are they? Is there anything in the works to improve the triggers in bullpups right now or is it even possible?
The upcoming desert tech bullpup is supposed to have a pretty legit trigger out of box, and the aftermarket tavor triggers are nice, but fuckin expensive.
Personally, I'm waiting to see how the Desert Tech rifle is. I'm itchin for a bullpup too.
let post some ugly bullpup
In my personal opinion, you should buy an AUG. Triggers for the Tavor are hundreds of dollars. If you already have tons of AR mags, there's a version of the AUG A3 that accepts them instead of the waffle mags.
There are two available trigger mods I know of for the AUG: Trigger Tamer and Neu Trigger. I have a trigger tamer in my A3 and it reduces trigger pull by about 4 pounds or so if I remember correctly, without fucking with the springs. The Neu Trigger supposedly removes stacking and makes the trigger pull smoother overall, but I have no personal experience with that.
I have both the neu trigger and trigger tamer in my AUG and with the right tuning it's really amazing. It's now down to a short 4.2lb pull.
I've had people ask me if it was FA due to how fast I could shoot it.
I'll prioritize buying the Neu Trigger as well then.
Absolutely. The AUG in its various forms has a very impressive track record of reliability. Like any military firearm, it can suffer from repeatedly being issued without proper maintenance. However, it's very reliable when properly maintained. Admittedly, it carries the price of proprietary parts if you need to replace them (which you shouldn't have to until you've enjoyed years with the rifle). That said, it's very simple to strip and clean. You'll eventually see wear on the polymer body, but it will be cosmetic damage. The body is very rigid.
It was one of the best purchases I ever made.
Also, that 20" is sexy, I'm still missing a 20" for my collection.
Not at all. Like the other anon said. It'll scratch if abused enough, for example you can see brass scratches on the stock where the shell bounce off. But other than that it's extremely well built. My AUG was a pre-ban made in the 80's and it's still kicking with pretty much all stock parts.
I'll also add that there's the Manticore Arms brass deflector for the AUG. You can avoid getting brass in the face while shooting lefthanded, and it will prevent brass from marring your AUG. A common concern I see about the AUG is the lack of a brass deflector. The Manticore deflector is around $20 and it clips onto your rifle.
How cold? I buried the thing in snow last year, stuffed it in my mags, ran 100%.
Sweet, sounds like I'll be getting my first spacegun next year provided I can resist purchases until then. Is Desert Tech something I should wait for, as a left eye dominant person the forward ejection sounds like something I could get behind but I don't really like to buy new guns because there are almost always hiccups for at least the first run.
True, and I do wonder how it would compare to the AUG a couple years down the line when hopefully it comes down a bit on the price though it would probably be always more expensive.
I'm already good with an AR for a main rifle so it'll be more or less a range toy/ maybe home defense gun so I kind of want to wait and see where this goes.
>forward ejection tube
how have I missed that they were making one in 7.62? My boner.
I thought the ability to swap between 2.205 and 2.750 OAL cartridges was one of the main draws of the MDR. That's what makes me want it most.
You don't have to estimate. Eurooptic has had it up on their site for a long time. And it was confirmed with DT that Eurooptic had the right prices.
