Clawgear Top Rail: get more real estate on that AUG A3
Do you roll with a Steyr AUG? Doesn’t matter if it’s professional or recreational…if you use one, and are one of those switched-on types who keep an eye out for Steyr AUG parts to upgrade that oh-so-recognizable bullpup, you might be interested in this news from Clawgear.
Introducing the AUG A3 top rail. It’seemingly minor and innocuous, sure, but potentially among the most hand of the very few AUG accessories out there. Like most other Clawgear designs, it’s intended to make the iconic Steyr Arms platform perform better (or at least to make more efficient use of available real estate).
In this case, it is intended to provide extended rail space to the front and rear (when compared to the original AUG rail).
According to the manufacture, it sports the following attributes:
• Made of high strength aluminum with Mil-Spec Type III hard coat anodized finish
• Features a non-glare coating to reduce reflections
• Makes the A3 rifle compatible with the Clawgear AUG Handguard
• Features a 30 slot Picatinny rail (NATO STANAG 4694)
• Anti-rotational QD attachment point at the front

Sure, there aren’t that many gun owners in the USA who own or use a Steyr AUG, but the Bundespolizei, the Bundesheer, Irish Defence Forces, elements of the Irish Army Rangers and Austria’s Spezialeinsatzkräfte, and many others will benefit — as will a few us here on this side of the pond.
