Steyr AUG Barrel 14"

The 14" barrel is the smallest of all the aug barrels. Possession of this barrel and a Aug requires a special license SBR Short barreled rifle 02. Unlike other Aug gas ports it has an angular port. This model is very short and allows for close combat in confined areas. Thus use of this variation is for specific missions. 

What does a 14 inch barrel do???
14" barrel?
- less velocity
- more noise
- more flame

Cutting a 20 inch barrel is a gun smiting nightmare and not recommended

See lower description by our resident aug expert Jim1.

All barrels for the Steyr AUG are hammer-forged from high-grade steel and feature chrome-plated bores. They connect to the receiver by means of locking lugs and can be installed or removed in seconds simply by rotating them 45 degrees, or 1/8 of a turn. Each barrel is equipped with a synthetic grip allowing greater muzzle control and protection for the shooter. With the exception of the 14" submachine gun barrel, the barrel grip folds upward for firing from the prone position. Also incorporated into the barrel assembly is the gas system which includes the gas cylinder, piston, spring, and an adjustable chrome-plated gas plug.

BUT, petey-pie, is the hole from the barrel, to the regulator a different size??? we don't want the hole too large, because, it has been found to screw up the harmonics on some short-barrelled rifles (like the CAR-15;XM-177;M4) under full-auto fire. some of these rifles have been found to have TWICE the port pressure of their longer-barrelled cousins even on semi-auto mode. what this means, guys, on a system as delicate as the AR-15, is that this is not a system one wants to endanger in any way, ESPECIALLY when it needs to be in a life-dependent environment. (and, some of those longer, convoluted gas tubes that are supposed to alleviate all these problems, & make the short-barrelled gun function like a long-snout, have, so far, been found to be either ineffective, or inoperative). another example to consider, the m1 garand. when it was brought on-line, we did not have the slower-burning powders we have now, & those we did have, we hadn't done the experimentation with, like we have now. consequently, guys w/the garand decide they want to shoot 180s, (some m1-a competitors, w/the proper twist, shoot the 190-200gr. bullets) so, the first thing they do (to get the most from it), is to load for it like a boltgun; they crack open a can of 4831, check out a load, & take off. problem is, being a slow-burner, 4831 doesn't burn completely 'til it gets a bit farther along, so the port pressure now is ALL out of time, & since the END of the op-rod starts(like a bullet),moving BEFORE the rest of the op-rod, the result is a bent, IN-operative op-rod or, if we're lucky, maybe a casing that has had the extractor tear thru' it, & leave it in the chamber, whereas, if they'd originally started w/4895, the powder originally used in the wwII '06, being a quicker number, they would have run into a poor load, before they'd had trouble w/timing or anything else, certainly nothing like pressure-bent rods. the point of this is, before you do all the drilling, know what's going on--you can ALWAYS drill, you can't put it back. i apologize for the length of this post, but i'm trying to give you some examples that will allow one to intuitively grasp the problems & the parameters w/which you're working.--AUG barrels ain't cheap, & i certainly wouldn't want one, that looked perfect in every way--except it wouldn't work as a result of something i'd done, sitting there to forever remind me of what i'd done TO it. take care.
