My love for bullpups started before I even had experience using a firearm. I liked the looks of the British L85 rifles. The green furniture of the rifle and the compact, aggressive look made it oh so appealing. After I joined the military and had experience with using an M16/M4 to clear urban environments, I realized that having a rifle dangling out in front of me did not fill me with alot of confidence. This brings me to why I opted for a bullpup when I got out.
In a long and growing line of bullpups, the Steyr AUG has remained as a fine example for others to follow. I think it is easy for people to brush the AUG off as being some obsolete design simply because of its' age. But what people fail to realize is the fact that it has served over a dozen militaries really well and with distinction. It has seen several changes and upgrades to keep it relevant in a world where accessories and modularity are highly valued.
