About the Steyr AUG Pre Ban
The Steyr AUG is an Austrian 5.56×45mm NATO bullpup assault rifle, designed in the 1960s by Steyr Mannlicher GmbH & Co KG (formerlySteyr-Daimler-Puch). The AUG (Armee-Universal-Gewehr—”universal army rifle”) was adopted by the Austrian Army as the StG 77(Sturmgewehr 77) in 1978, where it replaced the 7.62×51mm StG 58 automatic rifle (a licence-built FN FAL). In production since 1978, it is the standard small arm of the Austrian Bundesheer and various national police units.
