In response to an overwhelming number of requests for a longer top rail for its AUG A3 M1 bullpup platform, Steyr Arms announced that it is now in full production of a Long Rail version of the rifle. With 25 numbered slots—two more than the original flat-top AUG A3 SA-—the rifle offers a significant increase in surface area for optics and back-up iron sights. The rifle retains same overall rail height over the stock comb, and the rail extends a full 5.5” back from the receiver, placing its rearmost edge almost in line with the front of the ejection port for better rear iron sight placement.

The rifle also features lightening cuts along both sides and milled areas underneath, helping to to reduce its overall weight to 7.8 lbs. Available in Black, Mud, OD Green or White for either the standard AUG stock or the NATO-style stocks, which accept STANAG magazines.

The AUG A3 M1 Long Rail ships with one translucent polymer 30-round magazine. MSRP is $2,099; $145 for just the rail.
