MSAR/Steyr Frankenstein’s AUG

Post by Jonathanw » Tue Feb 06, 2018 12:08 pm

So I purchased/traded one of the MSAR E4 Rifles that never went in for the Magazine Catch Recall(found out after the fact) so I purchased a Steyr Aug A3 stock to replace the old MSAR stock. It was an extremely tight fit (Had to be filed down in 2 spots and the button had to be tapped in place but the stocks are interchangeable with minimal work. Charging handle is a lot more stuff now which I believe may be just stiff in the new stock. Everything works, I just need to take it to the range. I was thinking of buying Gauges but I’m not sure a new stock would effect headspace in anyway. Any opinions on that?

Here’s the hybrid AUG clone

The problem with stiffness of the charging handle has been solved. I filed more of the locking latch to better fit the receiver. The receiver is now in line more with the stock so that charging handle is smooth and easy
