    I'm not usually too big on bullpups, but that looks pretty cool. Let us know how it shoots.

    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    I'll be interested to hear how it shoots. I was looking at the very model before I settled on my AR. It was the only AK I could find that fit me, you know? The only thing I could find wrong with it is that the mag was a little difficult to get out (it had to contact the grip) - 'course that could have just been my inexperience! Also, I couldn't find any reviews on it, and I don't have enough experience with AK's to be able to tell if it was a good gun. I look forward to your range report. Hope it shoots well.

    Yes it does have to touch the grip. I sort of look at it as a guide. Touch grip and push up. :) I like the way it mounts on your shoulder. Your trigger arm is extended further out then an AR. You can really push back on the gun to get a good firm connection. Then you grip the trigger fore grip with both hands just like a pistol. It almost sounds sexual.. :)

    I hear ya. It felt great on my shoulder, and the sights lined up just perfect. It took me about two minutes to get the mag out, so I put it back, and decided to do a little research. Couldn't find any reviews on it, so I put it down the line. I'm only on my second rifle, and I wanted to be sure I knew what I was getting. Please let us all know how it shoots! My one EBR is a little lonely in the safe.

    Looks really cool, No offence but from this long time AK shooter it doesn't look very practical. As said already removing and inserting the mag seem to be a real pain, and how do you manipulate the safety with out removing your strong hand from the grip? Do you rack from going under or over the top? I guess with anything there is a learning curve and allot of practice time,
    Have fun and be safe.

    I saw that in Gun Digest a few weeks ago, as I was reading in bed one night. I showed it to my wife, and told her that I really liked it, and I would probably get one soon. I happened to notice a few nights later that she had marked it. My birthday is in 10 days, so I held off going to the gun sow to buy one this weekend, As I may have a surprise soon. She had also asked how someone went about buying a rifle by mail order. Now, if I don't get it, I'm sure that she will have gotten me something else that I want, and I'll just get one after I get back from a trip in a couple of weeks. It's a cool gun. Congratulations!

    There is one of those taunting me from the rack in one of the local gun shops here in town. Id be interested in a range report when you get time

    I've looked at them but could never find anyone who had shot one.

    The mag reload is the biggest trouble I can see. Maybe using an AK-47 Tactical Release from Red Star Arms would improve the change.

    I Have one installed in my Ak and for the Bullpup you would use the thumb to release the mag without having to let go of the grip.

    And I would have to check those sights... how are they?

    hmm...I think I'll stick to my regular AK's...that thing just looks awkward to manipulate (mag-changes, selector lever, etc.).

    +1. I'm a lefty too. So all that brass would be ringing my bell.
