another look at the SRS rifle

The Stealth Recon Scout (SRS) is bolt-action sniper rifle developed by the American firearm manufacturer Desert Tactical Arms. It was unveiled at the 2008 SHOT Show.

Design details
The Stealth Recon Scout is notably unusual in that it is one of the few rifles that has a bullpup bolt-action layout. This gives the rifle a relatively compact design; claimed to be 11 inches (280 mm) shorter than conventional sniper rifles.[1] Because of the bullpup layout, the magazine and bolt are behind the pistol grip, hence the operation is slightly different than most other conventional designs. This layout also shifts more weight to the rear of the rifle; the manufacturer claims that this creates a central balancing point.[2] The sling points are balanced with the centerline of the weapon to ensure it lies flat when slung. The rear support grip cheekrest is optimized with the height of the scope and eye alignment, removing the need for an adjustable cheekpiece. A raised, contoured buttpad helps to seat it more securely into the shooter's shoulder.

The Stealth Recon Scout was originally designed around the .338 Lapua Magnum cartridge, but is also available in three other calibers; .243 Winchester, .308 Winchester, and .300 Winchester Magnum—all of which can be changed in a quick conversion.[3] The .338 variant is fed from a five round box magazine, and uses a 26" (660 mm) match fluted, free floated barrel. While the barrel is standard with a muzzle brake, it can be removed to allow access to a threaded muzzle for the attachment of a suppressor. The rifle is guaranteed to have a standard 0.5 MOA (0.15 mrad) accuracy and uses a 1-6 lbs (4-27 N) adjustable match trigger.[4]

The rifle is constructed of polymer (available in olive drab, tan, or black), aluminum, and steel. The handguard and upper receiver use a Picatinny rail system for attaching accessories such as a bipod or a telescopic sight. The safety can be operated without removing the user's hand from the pistol grip, and the magazine release can be operated with one hand.

SRS Bullpup?

Who's the maker of this rifle? Just can't seem to like the bullpup design but I've never shot one so I really can't bash it.
