I may have over looked this, but why no SA80's in the civilian market!
I don't care if the AR is more reliable or whatever, the SA80 is just a cool gun!
Probably my favorite bullpup out there!

The PS90 is cool too, but without a stamp they're pretty goofy looking!

Bullpup kinda grew on me over time. I own a pre-ban Aug that I bought many years ago. Then for the comparison. I bought a MSAR. They could be twins. Then about 6 months ago. I bought a Tavor and seem to like it. Then I found a used MSAR with a single crack in the top/front of the receiver that can be fixed. For dirt cheap. More than 50% off market value. Plus I found a PS90 and have not even shot it yet. About 5 years ago, I built a bullpup AK47. Just for chits and grins a bullpup 10/22 would be fun.

One of my first bullpups:

I just love it when someone takes my photo and puts their name on it.

That is an AWC G2A. It is an M1A converted to a bullpup made by Lynn McWilliams and Gale McMillan.

It was a very accurate rifle - 0.5 MOA three shot groups in my hands, and I am not that good of a shot.

Another one of my earlier bullpups:

Not my pic. Handy little AK in 7.62x39. Norinco 86s. Many of the parts interchange with other AKs, especially Norincos. Short sight radius, but when I had better eyesight, I could hit a man sized target, offhand, at 500 meters about 50% of the time - which I consider pretty good for that short sight radius and an AK.
 
Who ever wrote that article is insane. There are far better bullpups on the market that can out perform a Keltec anything. FN PS90, FN S2000, Tavor, British Enfield. Even the US made MSAR. A 10/22 in an after market stock made the top 5? really?
Thanks. I thought maybe I was missing something, but yeah that guy’s noodle has slipped a bit.

It is written like one of those blog posts where someone gets paid by the word - not very knowledgable, repeating what most gun people already know, boring, and sometimes wrong, not really sharing anything that we don't already know.

I didn't know that Ruger made a 10/22 bullpup, so that was news to me!
:D
