Bullpup Rifles (Semi)

Either you love them or hate them, the bullpup design on the market offer both advantages and disadvantages. It eventually boils down to individual shooter preference, which holds true for any firearm. There are also various chassis or kit options to convert other rifles or shotguns into bullpups, but the ones posted above started off life as one, rather than turning into one. Most if not all should be familiar to any gun enthusiast.

  • MAS .223 (very rare civilian FAMAS)
  • Steyr AUG CQB
  • FN FS2000
  • IMI TAR-21
  • FN PS90
  • Steyr AUG
  • Kel-Tec RFB

Taurus Raging Thirty

In production for only 1 year, this is one of the harder to find Raging Bull models. They were only available in a 10” long non-ported barrel. It’s closest rival was the Ruger Blackhawk, which was also available in .30 Carbine. (GRH)

Kel-Tec KSG

12 gauge bullpup shotgun made in the U.S, some say the design was influenced by the South African Neostead. When they first hit the market in extremely limited numbers, people looking to be the first to own one shelled out upwards of $1,500+ for one. Now you can get the KSG in different colors, hopefully with all the issues fixed, for around $800~. (GRH)

DShKM

Also known as the DShK 38/46 or “Modernized”, this Russian heavy machine gun still sees heavy use in the Middle East and some Com-Bloc nations who haven’t upgraded to the NSV or Kord. The last two photos give a look at the anti-aircraft sights. It would be a complete setup but its missing the shoulder pad assembly. You can check out some more photos in the link below. When my wheeled mount arrives, I’ll take pics of mine as well. (GRH)

Excess or Essential?

One of the greatest strengths of the AR-15 platform is its near endless modular adaptability thanks to a plethora of aftermarket parts. However there is always a balance to be struck between putting on extras that serve a practical purpose. Where do you draw your line on how much stuff you put on your guns?

SPAS-12

One of the most distinct features of this Italian shotgun is the top-folding metal stock. The “shepard’s hook” is designed to twist to the side to support your forearm for one-handing shooting; which according to Franchi was meant for around the corner, over barriers or from a moving vehicle.

In the fourth photo you can see the letters “A” and “M”. Since the SPAS-12 can switch between semi-auto and pump-action, those marks indicate which mode of operation you’re in. When you push the button on the handguard, you either slide it forward til it locks for “A” (automatic), or slide it back for “M” (manual). (GRH)

AK47S

An AK by different names, depending on the importer, you’ll sometimes see these marked AKS-762 or AK47S etc. Made in China, the “Spiker” rifles, nicknamed due to their integrated spike bayonet, are collectable and considered some of the best AK’s on the market. The configuration of the rifle in the photos is what would be called a “double-underfolder” because of the two underfolding parts; the stock and bayonet. (GRH)

Conversion

Though it looks like a HK G36, this is what would be considered an incomplete conversion even though it is functional. The 2nd photo shows the Black Market Parts lower which combines the stock and pistol grip as one solid piece. The length of pull is altered, making it too long for some people.

In the 3rd photo you’ll see a cap in the magwell area. An SL8 has a “sunken” in magwell that only allows it to accept single stack magazines. Installing a G36 magwell exposes the gap. Plastic welding has to be done in order to seal it up so it again resembles the G36. Definitely not an easy or cheap conversion when compared to other weapons in a similar situation, the Saigas.

Noreen Bad News

Usually associated and known for their single-shot bolt-action 50 BMG rifles, Noreen released the Bad News series of rifles a couple of years ago, patterning them around the AR-15/AR-10. However, they went up on the caliber department; the Bad News is available in 30-06, .300 Win Mag and .338 Lapua Magnum. Although they drew in a lot of interest, they appear to be plagued by quality control and reliability issues. Ironic choice of name. (GRH)
