why? they allow longer barrel lengths for the size of weapon thus (in most cases) greater accuracy and also they make for a more compace weapon in general and given that most modern infantry combat is in a FIBUA/MOUT environment this is much more useful than a full length rifle

I actualy saw photo of something that had look of FN P90 with magazine in the same place where it is on clasic bull pup design but later it was said that that was photoshop.I was trying to find that photo to post it here but couldnt find it on the net anymore.

Having been a user of bullpup rifles (L85A1 & A2) for the last 15 years or so I can say that they are a good design. Very useful for inside vehicles and when carrying out OBUA op's. The thing I don't like about mine is that it is butt heavy, as they all tend to be. However when they have a UGL fitted they become VERY barrel heavy (and about twice the weight)
