Snow Wolf AUG Quad Railed Bullpup AEG

Snow Wolf
Code:
£289.99
  • Full metal construction
  • 20mm railed handguard
  • Bullpup configuration
  • Bullpup rifles have always been something of a marmite topic, but with all the features this AUG comes with, this argument is getting more and more one sided. The Snow Wolf AUG Railed AEG is a unique modern take on the famous AUG assault rifle which has served with the militaries of Austria, Australia and New Zealand, and was also wielded by Karl, mercenary companion to Hans Gruber during their attempted take over of Nakatomi Headquarters in the 1988 movie Die Hard.

    This AUG boasts full metal construction with a quad-railed handguard for a more modern variant of the classic AUG with options for sights and tactical devices as well as an integrated foregrip, bridging the gap between the old and new AUG styles.

    Description

    The AUG is one of the most iconic rifles of the 20th century, both in popular culture and in military service. The AUG has made its mark in service with the Australian and New Zealand armed forces in its licence-built iteration, the F88 Austeyr, and also served with distinction in the Austrian and Irish militaries. The AUG's almost space-age style and unconventional look helped it take centre stage in Die Hard (1988) as the primary weapon of Karl, a classic German bad guy, where the AUG's ability to be disassembled in seconds was showcased and captured the imagination of a whole generation of firearms enthusiasts, and Airsofters!

    The Snow Wolf Railed AUG is a unique take on the classic "civilian" railed AUG, with some modern features to go with the futuristic looks of this mould-breaking 1970s bullpup design. This AUG variant sports a 20mm Picatinny quad rail which mounts in front of the AUG's folding grip, providing 20mm rails so you can choose from a slew of tactical devices such as torches and laser, whatever suits your playstyle the most.

    The front of the AUG comes with a duckbill flash hider, unique to this style of rifle, in keeping with the iconic design choices of the AUG. If the flash hider is not to your liking you can always swap it out for the muzzle device of your choice, such as a suppressor or tracer unit using the 14mm CCW thread.

    An advantage of bullpup rifles is that you can fit a longer barrel in a comparatively short overall length, with the AUG featuring a lengthy 20 inch barrel, mostly concealed in the body with a total length of less than 32 inches. As opposed to something like an M4 that would be much longer with a comparable barrel, the AUG gives you the length you need for accuracy and range, while keeping you light and mobile on your feet while skirmishing.

    Over on the right side of the handguard, we can see a cutout for the dummy gas block of the AUG. On the real rifle this part controls the gas flow to the operating system and allows the AUG to be tuned for normal or adverse conditions. This part doesn't function in Airsoft terms but is rightly included to keep this AUG replica looking faithful to the real thing.

    While this variant is a more modern railed take on the original class, it still retains a lot of iconic features and design choices which made the AUG such a forward-thinking rifle, way ahead of its time. Like the real thing, it has a hot swap barrel system. This means you can quickly remove the outer barrel either for maintenance or to swap between barrel lengths. To remove the outer barrel you will need to lock the charging handle back and up into its "safety notch" and push and hold the catch found on the left side of the receiver, between the handguard and the trigger guard. With the barrel removal catch held down, the barrel can be rotated by just a few degrees clockwise with the barrel facing away, and you can pull the entire outer barrel and handguard out. The external section of the outer barrel is constructed from alloy, and the section inside the receiver is constructed from polymer with a realistic phosphate style colouration.

    Running along the upper receiver we can find a nice long 20mm Picatinny rail which meets the handguard rail seamlessly, providing a modern look and the functionality to keep up with other cutting-edge designs. This rail length is ample for a full suite of mission essentials, including a PEQ15, optical sight, tactical flashlight and backup iron sights, should you want to dress this AUG up in the special forces style we all love.

    Over on the left side of the upper, we can see the charging handle of the AUG. This handle is constructed from high-density polymer and connects to an aluminium rod inside the receiver which actuates the mock bolt to reveal the rotary HOP-up adjuster inside the ejection port. The charging handle can be locked by pulling it to its rearmost point of travel and rotating it upwards into its "safety notch", which will hold the mock bolt back whilst you adjust your HOP-up. The adjustable HOP-up lets you tune the AUG for different ammunition weights and provides an extended range by applying backspin to each BB.

    The HOP-up adjuster can be accessed from either side of the AEG thanks to its ambidextrous ejection port design. Out of the box the left side ejection port is covered with a rubber cap, but this can be removed and placed on the right side, or left off the AEG entirely so you can more easily adjust the HOP-up setting on the fly mid skirmish.

    The controls of the AUG are a little different to most conventional rifles but well designed nonetheless and functional from either side, so lefties fear not! The safety catch is a push-through design located just above the pistol grip, and when the safety protrudes on the right side the rifle is on safe and the trigger is locked. Pushing the safety through so it protrudes on the left will release the trigger lock. The AUG makes use of a two-stage trigger system, which means a short pull of the trigger will fire semi-automatic, and a full pull to the rear will fire fully automatic. This means if you need to suddenly put a burst down range to deal with a moving target it is faster to switch modes with the AUG platform than practically any other AEG out there.

    The grip and stock of the AUG are integrated into one piece as a part of its space-age design, known as the "chassis" of the rifle. This piece is constructed from high-density reinforced polymer with a high quality textured feel. This modernisation of the AUG includes raised textured panels on either side of the grip and on the butt stock itself to assist in wet weather use.

    With a widened "grip length," the AUG's trigger guard is largely responsible for its recognisable silhouette and allows fast access to the trigger even if you use thick winter gloves when skirmishing. This trigger guard can also do double duty as an angled foregrip for use in compressed stances in CQB situations.

    The magazine release of the AUG can be found on the bottom of the stock, just behind the magazine well, and is centrally positioned to allow for both left and right-handed use. Way ahead of its time, this mag release was one of the first modern bullpup rifles to enter the market and the AUG nailed it on the first go. Unlike the Tavor, there is no chance that you will accidentally hit the mag release and dump your magazine, and unlike the L85 you don't have to be purebred right-handed to operate it efficiently.

    The battery compartment of the AUG is located inside the stock, and can be accessed by simply pulling the rubber butt plate off. Inside you will find a mini-Tamiya battery connector, and a decently sized battery compartment which can comfortably house either stick or nun-chuck style LiPo batteries. For the R904 we recommend a 7.4V 1300mAh LiPo battery in either crane or Stick configuration.

    The internals of this unique AUG rifle has been upgraded since the first Army Armament AUG release, featuring reinforced steel gears, a reinforced piston with a directional piston head and a bearing-equipped spring guide, guaranteeing smooth running and a longer life than previous generations. The long inner barrel of this compact AEG also lends itself to superb performance, and the rotary style AUG HOP-up unit is known to be one of the best out there and formed the basis for the rotary unit found in more recent M4/AR15 AEG releases.

    So if you've been fancying dipping your toes into bullpup territory, but were also looking for something a little more up to date, specifically regarding rails, here is your chance to satisfy that backwards rifle urge. The AUG has all the bullpup advantages, including short overall length with a long barrel, exceptional handling and balance, and the ability to fit into smaller gun bags and cases than equivalent conventional rifles, and avoids the drawbacks with its addition of a quad-railed handguard so you can mount anything your heart desires.
