I too have been tossing around the idea of getting a AUG A3 but I've read that they constantly have failure to feed and failure to eject issues.

What kind of experience do you have with this?

These @ 100 yards with my sub-$200 Aimpoint Micro clone:





The failure to feed and eject might be that you're using a defective Steyr Magazine (I have one) or you have a defective Gen IV MSAR clone.

I shot a FN5-7 a while back when they first came out.... they're pretty cool, a big pricy for what you get IMO. I've got 2 Smith and Wesson M&P .40's (full size and a compact) and I'm thinking about a FNP40.... not a big fan of the FNX line, the grips just aren't comfortable to me . I can understand wanting more grip.... but geez!

Nice! My friend (who is also the deputy sherriff) has a 300 WIN MAG.

Who did the badass camo jobs on them?

Too bad you're in Alabama. I'd like to have my AUG's stock painted up.

You won't be able to get one with the collapsible stock on it from your dealer. Benelli won't sell them to anyone but LE and MIL. However, there are people selling them privately. One just went on ebay for a little over $300 last week.

I just got a Benelli M4 last week with fixed stock. The fixed stock's length of pull is perfect for me so I am not worried about having a collapsible stock. It was brand new in box for a steal of a price.

Wonder if my deputy sheriff friend would order it for me if I gave him the money???

Ya, I've always had an interest in that shotgun too, but I want it with the collapsible stock.

I think tho I might get some sort of Stevens bottom eject defense pump shotgun. Saw one at Academy for around $189, has a front fiber optic sight and rear shielded ghost ring sight.

Even if your friend could order you one (I think he would have to act like his dept. is ordering it for duty use. I am not sure an individual can get one from Benelli), you would end up paying more than if you bought one off ebay or used something like gunbroker, riverofguns, etc. I have seen several on ar15.com in the 350ish range. I think they retail over $500.

Okay, your picture cut out part of the text, but what are talking about "legal to carry everywhere"?

ProImaging, that no name .45, is it a FireMax, or something along that line? There's one in the vault at work we took off someone, actually feels decent.

As to the FN's...I've only got one, an FNP-9, that I've modded a bit..



Stock



Bobbed hammer to fit under thumbbreak on my duty rig



Stippled grip so it wouldn't be so slick

Absolutely love the FNP-9. That said, it got regulated to safe duty when I found the SAR K2-45, as imported by EAA.



That's it compared to my two tone EAA Witness in .40s&w. The SAR K2-45 is based on the CZ-97, has 14+1 capacity in .45acp., feels like a Sig P226 in the hand, can be cocked and locked, and the only downside is that it is a bit heavy. I'm a fairly large guy, 6'2" and 218pds, so I don't notice the weight much. I gave up two rounds a mag to the FNP-9, and gained a few ounces in weight, but also gained almost 100gr in bullet weight, not to mention a larger hole. And because of the weight, the K2-45 is pretty damn controllable, I can get a second or third shot off damn near as quick as the FNP-9!

Next weapon to get fiddled with? My Saiga 12, which is currently bone stock. Just gotta wait till after vacation so the extra funds can go towards it, lol!!

To give you an idea here's a list of guns I'm currently have or am working on getting

2 AR-15's
FN 5.7
FN Scar
FN PS90
FN FS2000
AR outfitted for 6.
Keltec PMR 30
Since you have several AR's just fill out a form4 for a SBR or a suppressor,or both.You will enjoy that or a sig 556 swat SBR.
