Bullpup, anyone?
 
Despite a past smeared my what seems to be nothing but built up public opinion, they have a bad rep. but to me it seems they are a under utilized weapon system.

I love short barreled weapons. but with that you get the draw back of range and of course uncle sam's men lookin in on you once you put 'buttstock' and 'under 16 inches' in the same sentence.

i found what could be my new love in the Keltec RFB. bullpup, revolutionary design, simple as hell, and the best part- its a .308. So far i havent found too bad of a review unless its from some AR lover being a douche. anybody have experiece with this piece, comments?

ive got way more varieties of rifles that just AR15s but bullpus arent one of em. the reason i dont like bullpus rifle layout is the ergonomics are abysmal. its like whomever designed the first one had a study done of what is the best ergonomic layout for a rifle then did the exact opposite.

It's cool but I just can't get into them. I like rifles with a little more reach.

Can we expect a range report?

I don't have any experience with that firearm or bullpup firearms, but I have a buddy of mine who does.

Here's the link to his youtube review of it.

I owned a bullpup rifle for a bit. I was taken in with the cool looks and short barrel sticking out in front of me.
The problem I ran into is a much SLOWER mag change out. I grew up on rifles where the mag is in front of your trigger finger. Mag changes meant, dropping empty and slammin in full. An easy fluid motion. When you go bullpup, that all changes. First, when you release the mag, it hangs up on your chest if you try to keep the weapon in place. Then when you try to load in another mag, you dont have the muscle memory to make it a fluid motion and end up bumping the top of the mag all around the mag well. Kinda like screwing for the first time drunk. Thats fine if you are at the range but not so good if you find yourself in a bad situation. Now, with practice and training you can get past that but it is just another thing to learn and get used to.
As far as accuracy goes, I honestly dont think there was a big enough difference to even talk about. Keep in mind, the shortest barrel length I have ever owned is 16.5". I am SURE there is a noticable diff between say a 10 or 11" barrel and an 18" bullpup. I simply can not speak about that as I dont have any first hand knowledge.
Overall, if you are looking for something with cool factor and have the oppertunity to practice, a bullpup will do well by you. If you are a long time shooter of other mag fed weapons (AR's, AK's, FAL's, M1A's etc) you may end up feeling like a left handed person trying to write an essay with your right hand.

I've never shot a bullpup, but I gotta say, they seem like the best design by far.
