Steyr AUG and MSAR STG-556

We had the chance to put these two rifles side by side to see how similar and different they are the standard Steyr AUG P from the 1980s and the MSAR STG-556 made in the USA currently. The MSAR STG-556 is an AUG A1 clone manufactured by Microtech Small Arms Research Inc. The two rifles look very similar but their parts are not interchangeable. The major differences are the sights and the additional parts on the STG-556. The Steyr AUG has a built in optic / carry handle, where the STG-556 has an accessory rail (MIL-STD-1913 rail). The STG-556 has some additional parts including a forward assist and a bolt hold-open device like the AR15/M16.
