^ I look forward to seeing some pics. I know next-to-nothing about Vaqueros, new or old.
I know of a source for brand new still in the box late-1980s production AUG A1s for a bit under $3K. It's an amazing opportunity and price, but I like shooters and not collectors. For the same reason I wouldn't pay much over $2K for an HK91 (I actually prefer FMPs anyway). The AUG is a lot of fun to shoot - and it's been fun seeing how my 'muscle memory' didn't forget all the training so many years ago.
I passed on an amazing deal for a pair of Vaqueros in .44mag a couple of years ago ..... and still regretting it! The new Steyr AUG may get released this year after all. FN are currently producing barrels (14" with permafixed muzzle device, 16", 20" and a 24" with bipod), cold hammer forged and chrome-lined using imported Austrian blanks. FN will not be making the receivers - that is still a mystery. It dose sound like they will be a lot better than the last attempt by...
I needed a soft case to take my 16" barrel AUG (around 27" OAL) to and from the range. Looking around at the off-the-shelf options on-line I wasn't overly impressed. I was either looking at something too big or something covered in 9mm SMG mag pouches when all I needed is a simple carry bag with good padding and somewhere to keep a spare bolt (for right-handed friends). That's when I remembered Retro Tactical - I had been following Tony's work making molle 'tactical'...
No more O'Bang(e) in the CE??

Looks like a lot of fun! Though it is partially funded by the US Government and everal parts are supposed to be made here, the IMI Tavor can't be imported whole to the US. Instead, we are waiting to see if Charles Daily will successfully produce barrels, receivers and other 922R parts so that it can be sold as a domestically produced firearm.Obviously, I am very biased towards the AUG platform, but I do like what I have read about the TAVOR. Pity it doesn't have the AUG's...
I feel your pain, D. In fact, I have been feeling it since we brought our son home from the hospital nearly 23 months ago. I plan to sleep when I am dead ..... though that may be overly optimistic.
I picked-up a new carry handgun today. The fixed sights on my S&W 6906 were waaaay off and impractical to fix and I am booked to requalify for my CHL next weekend. So, I have finally succumb to the tupperware firearm craze. I did shoot one at the range a couple of years ago with Southern Nupe. Like all my other handguns, it has a slide-mounted 'up tp shoot' safety/decocker. It's not pretty, but I hope it will be functional. The adjustable backstrap is a nifty...
