Lithgow F90 ATRAX Fed By Magpul Mags


The Lithgow F90 is the standard service rifle for the Australian military. It is based on the Steyer Aug design and is often dubbed the “Aus Steyer”. I got a chance to check out two F90s at Big 3 East Media event.

You can see a clip of the F90 here.

The Lithgow F90 can be fed with Steyer Aug magazines. However these were fed excuvsively with Magpul PMAGs made for an Australian Military contract.

The PMAG 30 AUS GEN M3 Window is a 30-round 5.56×45 NATO polymer magazine for Steyr® AUG/F88/F90 compatible weapons that features transparent windows to allow rapid visual identification of approximate number of rounds remaining.

It was in New York State where he became a USPSA competitive shooter and learned about 3Gun. He is an avid fan of running and gunning. Nicholas is a fan of pretty much anything that shoots although the slicked-up race guns are what interests him the most. Having spent time with FFLs and other friends with NFA items he has begun his collection of NFA items and has learned that everything should be suppressed and full auto where possible and legal.
