The rifle is fully ambidextrous. It can be configured for use by left-handed shooters by simply changing the bolt for a left-handed one with the extractor and ejector on opposite sides, and moving a blanking cap from the left ejection opening to the right. The housing of the AUG rifles, integral with the pistol handle and trigger guard, is made from the high impact-resistant polymer, and is usually of green or black color.

The Australian Army's modified version of the Steyr AUG A1 is called F88 Austeyr.

It is entirely possible to have a combination of tags beside each country. For example, if country X is tagged with a G and a N, it means that at least one source of data identifies Governmental agencies as holders of weapon type Y, and at least one other source confirms the presence of the weapon in country X with non-Governmental armed groups.
