Bullpup is a very revolutionary design that has a lot of advantages but a lot of disadvantages too. The main advantage is you can increase your barrel length but keep overall length the same. However having the receiver in the buttstock has some disadvantages. The weapon is awkward and sometimes back-heavy. You can't make the stock shorter or longer. Changing magazines is very hard and awkward too. You also can't use beta- c mags. Having all of this said I am still somewhat of a fan of bullpups.

like i said ive read up on it as much as one can. unlike others such as an AUG or P90 this one was designed with ergonomics in mind. It takes regular metric FAL mags and there is no rocking or tilting to release the mag or put on in so im not worried about mag changes. for me going under the arm for one seems more...logical i guess, i dont know i have a weird taste and feel, hence why ill pick an AK over any AR. but thats an argument for another thread.

im hoping this is the one rifle i will test that will satisfy my need for a long/short barreled rifle (see what i did there?) im not a fan of regular SBR's since you might as well have a damn uzi, but a rifle with an 18" barrel that will make it easier to take rooms and go house to house would be a dream come true.

s**t in one hand, wish in the other.

I have a FA AUG and love it. Also have AR10 and AR15, FA Ruger AC556, and numerous bolt action rifles but the bullpup is just different/special enough to be a favorite. Effectively having three points of stabilization (shoulder, grip, front grip) certainly comes in handy for controlling it during firing. I just wish importing them hadn't become illegal in the mid 80's but that is water way under the bridge. Try finding parts for one. I just picked up a spare barrel for mine for almost $1400. Ouch.

I for one don't like the idea of an explosion going off under my chin. If you have a failure your going to lose half your face. I prefer a chamber out in front of my face.
