Has anyone had any exposure to these rifles?

I am interested in purchasing an SRS for hunting, but I am leary of the bullpup design getting in the way.
Thought and criticism appreciated.

I don't have any experience with the company or their products, but I've read people talking about them on other boards. I'm not a fan of bullpups either. It may be the best shooter in the world, but I can't get past the fact that it looks like a hi point got in a car crash with an M24 and an AR (AR 30's are pigs too). PC or Mac? The guys over at the hide probably know more. Have you considered AI, Barrett or Sako? I about jizzed my pants while molesting an AWSM.

CZ 550 looks interesting, but again no personal experience

I have considered many rifles, I like the fact that most of the weight is towards the butt, so when I add a suppressor, it does not get front heavy like my ACR. Also, for hunting, it is a compact rifle so it is easier to carry and not as cumbersome during the stalk in trees.

I love AI rifles and the fact that you can build your own rifle with their stocks is a great idea. I am going to shoot the .300 Win Mag, my family is extremely familiar with this round, so I do not see why I should change. Barrett 98B is .338 as far as I know.

Most of the shooting I do is unconventional positions. A bench rifle is pretty useless in the rugged terrain. I am afraid that the SAKO, CZ, XM2010 (if allowed for civilian sale) have design flaws for the type of terrain we hunt and the type of hunting we perform. If I had an unlimited budget like Nitris, I would buy a bunch and try them out, but each of those rifles is an economy car, at least 2 ounces of gold, mortgage for at least 2 months, etc.

I am just hung up with the bullpup design, because once again, unconventional shooting positions...

alrighty

Got it. Weight distribution makes sense. I thought you were looking at 338LM rifles.

Exposure,

My penis is now exposed and poking at that gorgeous rifle sitting on my screen.

something to consider...

Though the DT bull pup design would be nice and also easy to pack...

DT

The quick-change on their barrels is also a good feature; changing the barrel on a lot of other dedicated hunting or sniper systems (Rem700, Win 64, etc.) ain't easy quick or cheap.

Bullpups have always stuck in my craw since I shoot long guns lefty, but I know they get a lot of positive use from righties. (Steyr, USAR, etc. can be converted but that's not much of a sniping or hunting rifle).

Depending on your expected range, single-shot hunting handguns like the TC, Lone Eagle or RemXP-series can be a godsend in some terrain.

hunting range

THanks for the input TXLUCKYGUY,
Pistols are out because we range from point blank (in the trees) to 1000 yards across a canyon. Just depends on the weather, traffic and other unseen forces.

you do realise you can purchase a Bullpup stock for any AR and turn it into what you like?
