Welcome to Episode 164 of Gun Guy Radio! This is the podcast that shines a positive light on the firearms lifestyle. I’m Your host Ryan Michad and this is your weekly dose of positive firearms talk, without the politics. This week I’m joined by Grant Cunningham to discuss his experiences with Steyr Arms. Grant has been a longtime user of Steyr’s products, and has quite a bit of experience with several of their platforms.
How are you doing Grant?
Any cool things that you saw at NRA that you want to talk about?
And with that, we will head into the main topic, Steyr Arms
Grant is an author, trainer and gunsmith that I have had the honor of speaking with for about a year now, but I’ve been a fan of his work much longer than that. Grant has been using the Steyr pistols as a defensive firearm for a number of years now, and is also currently using the Steyr AUG as his chosen rifle.
- You’re known as a revolver guy Grant, what was your background with semi-auto pistols and rifles prior to you carrying a Steyr?
- What drove you to pick Steyr as a brand?
- What sets the Steyr series of pistols apart from other similar handguns on the market?
- Have you found that the not-often-seen trapezoidal sights on the Steyr have helped your shooting? I really enjoyed them. The gun pointed naturally and I feel like the sights were very easy to pick up.
- Moving on to the Steyr rifles. Do you have experience with the AUG only or have you worked with their Scout rifles?
- While it looks modern, the AUG was actually designed & introduced in the 1970’s, yet we don’t see them very often. Is it because bullpups are, oftentimes, unfairly looked down upon?
- What features does the AUG have that set it apart from other modern rifles?
- What might be some disadvantages of the AUG platform?
- If you could see changes made to the AUG design, what might they be?
- Where can people find more info and do you have any projects upcoming?
