Man ... now I want one even more!
I want one
A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.
I never liked the bull pup design, but that does look pretty cool.
Those guys in the video really need to learn how to control that little gun. It looked like it was kicking both their backsides.

What's with that opening in the front for the spent rounds to roll / slide out of, That looks like a jam watining to happen. I like the short OAL for HD. maybe in a smaller calibur though.

If I have to explain it, you wouldn't understand
I have pretty much hated the bullpup proportions since SA80 came out but ........ would love to try this fella. I suspect it would be too short for me as I usually need extra butt length but - could add something to gain an inch or so.
The spent cases seem to be coming out well and I'd hope they had that aspect well buttoned up - but it does make for thought about possible snafu's.

The spent cases do seem to be an issue, like the reciol of the next round is supposed to eject them. I don't know the design of it, but sometimes they won't eject for 2 rounds, and then with the third all three come out, which seems kind of odd.
I don't generally like bull-pups, but that ones looks like it would be interesting to have for a day at the range.

The only problem I could see with the ejection is if you're firing up.
But this is not the first rifle to use such an ejection system. The FN FS2000 has the same system and it seems to work.
Considering they were shooting .308 out of a rifle thats only a hair over 8 lbs, I'd say they were doing pretty darn good. Also notice the recoil seems to be straight back ... almost no muzzle rise.Those guys in the video really need to learn how to control that little gun.
Not a fan of the bullpup but that looks like FUN!!!

The Kel Tec has a hole for an ejection "port." But it seems to work.
I'd love to buy one...if the production weapons work of course.

Glad to see the vid . It confirms what i thought all along . I wouldnt have the rifle . Not only a good chance of the " ejection tube " fowling , but the dammed thing drops brass at your feet where you could step on it and slip . Ill save some $$ , shoot my fal and dump a bag of marbles at my feet when i want an " adventure " LOL .

There's something to be said for a .308 rifle with a 24" barrel
that is only 32" total length.

Depends on what they actually wholesale for and what the barrel is threaded - I don't have a bullpup, have piles of FALs and mags, and I'm allowed to have a novelty gun now and again.
