something like that might be great operationally then again it might suck big-time. the big advantage of a BP design is it can be very short and have a full length barrel.
i sort of like the idea of a bull-pup and i shoot left handed , aside from red hot brass hitting me in the face , all the bull pups i ever worked with had um-- interesting triggers with rather difficult to read and get the feel of. odd tear down procedures and rather fiddely internal bits. and they were all overweight for what they were. rather square and clunky in regards to the bushmaster m17s--
and some bull-pup designs make me a bit nervous --with a regular carbine the machinery is not right in you face and under your nose like it is in a BP -- so a BP has to be very well built and solidly constructed. an out of battery incident is bad in anything --but in a BP that is about where your mouth is!
i really wanted to like the AUG --but it suffered from all the above as well.
now if it breaks down simply, and is simple to repair-replace --like an ar-15, ain't insanely heavy and clunky , accurate , reliable and not insanely expensive it will catch on.
otherwise it will be another goodie for the gun collector rather than those who like to field theirs.
there are advantages to the BP it is that most of the time those advantages are not worth the trade offs involved. --at least from what i have seen so far.
i hope they do well with them. i sort of think the market for expensive play things is sort of drying up with the obama economy.
