Bullpup Porn

Didn't see one of these threads. Here is my Shernic Gun Works bullpup stock with an old Norinco SKS in it. Including optics about $500 if you have a 20 year to you old SKS laying around. It is still SKS reliable and accurate. It does need a good brake to offset the increased muzzle rise from the weight all being in the back. I know C&R purists will scream bloody murder but I like it.

    Nice rig if you like the bullpup configuration. Especially for the decent price of ~$500 complete. I do like the SKS.

    Alas, I don't like bullpups.

    You're funny.

    I like the SKS well enough but I don't think it is a good bull pup platform. It has too much junk in the trunk.

    I like it. I know a few people with them and they are awesome. How about some tavors, Steyrs and maybe the rare SA80. I am considering a Kushnapup AK build next.

    It is an exceptionally accurate pain in the butt. Or face, rather.

    Not my cup of tea. Seems you invested a lot of money in a SKS and wound up with something a little less valuable than what you started out with.

    I'm not a fan of bolt-on parts. I think a bullpup rifle has to be designed as a bullpup from jump street to be effective, not an add-on option. Otherwise, it's just an economic exercise in the law of diminishing returns. An SKS was not designed as a bullpup, and it's a good rifle in its own right. I can't think of a single advantage of making it such. Kinda like making an M 1 into a bullpup.

    But that's just me.

    I have never held a bullpup much less shot one so I can't say weather I like them or not. That said I do like the concept, shorten the rifle but not the barrel.

    The SKS was bought 20 years or so ago. It is a Norinco so not a collector. It is tail heavy but once shouldered you don't notice. I found it a few hundredths slower on splits than my 3gun AK due to muzzle rise but I am researching comps. I find the SKS reassuring over some of the plastic creations and the 7.62 more comforting than the poodle shooters. It has earned it's place in my HD collection. Now to decide between another Shernic to scope or a Kushnapup for an AK build or maybe a long receiver for a M11 to bullpup. Choices choices.

    I have tried to embrace the Bullpup concept through utilizing the AUG, the P90, and the DSR-1. I've come to the conclusion, it ain't gonna happen. It appears to be conceptually and operationally an un-American design.

    Every attempt to integrate the system has pretty much failed. We are a forward operating mag country.

    I understand the concept behind the bullpup, but I'm unwilling to adopt it as a integrated system.

    Great Britain and France and Austria have designed rifles to the Bullpup configuration. And maybe others. However, these were new designs around a concept, not a concept around a former design.

    Hvy does your setup ever give you ejection issues? I was watching the guy i traded my Norinco SKS to shoot it yesterday. The ejected shell was taking a high trajectory to the one o'clock and landing ten feet away. It seems like the shell deflector might cause issues.

    So far so good. I have run a shell deflector for over 20years on one of my other ones with a real scope and this one seems fine as well they do take a beating though. The only nit I can find with the setup is the extra muzzle rise which a good comp should fix.

    An action is an action. Look at all of the things you can do with a 10-22. There are plenty of conventional stocks on the market. The primary difference is this one adds a trigger linkage and forward grip. I must say the SGS trigger is the best bullpup trigger I have experienced.

    I also like shorter rifle with long barrel or at least not shortened.

    They all look soooo cool. Tacti-cool.

    I like the short lengths, but I have yet to read about or see one with a trigger system not designed by Rube Goldberg.

    If someone could solve the trigger issues and have the brass eject down I think it would go a long way to help the design.

    The idea of the bolt working under my eye is not appealing either. Again with a bottom eject, and the bolt area sealed under either eye would go a long way to making it a more friendly design.
