    Just like the title says.

    Anybody got one of these, or shot one?

    http://www.msarinc.com/stg556_sporting.html

    Saw one at my dealer saturday and after handling it some, decided I liked it. He's holding it for me until COB tuesday.

    Just looking to see if anyone has any experience to help me make up my mind (even though I think I know what i'm going to end up doing already)

    Steyr Aug clone? That's nifty.

    IIRC, I saw another company at SHOT that made Aug clones that took AR mags (or was that this company?).

    oh, and it would take factory Aug trigger groups, so if you somehow got an FA one, you could drop it into their rifle.

    the video on their site says these (the stg-556) only takes their mags, which kinda sucks. Hadn't heard of any that take AR mags.

    They're coming out with one that takes Glocks mags. Will be available in 9, 40, 45, 10 and .357SIG later on down the road.

    I won't lie, that looks hot. Love my Beretta CX4, but something made in america would be great so there isn't the hassle with a threaded barrel. Plus 33rd mags :wackit:

    The other one that takes AR mags is the TPD AXR. They are also gonna do .22 / 6.8SPC /5.45x39 conversion kits.

    A: you can't get a P90 unless you're able to get post 86 machine guns
    B: You meant a PS90
    C: PS90s don't use ar15 mags, FS2000's do.

    But thanks for playing.
