I'll be honest... The Bullpup Carbine Kit seems like nothing more than an expensive option to change things up without adding much to the platform. Just my personal opinion.
BUT....
This prototype that Sven showed off is Definitely an interesting variation that seems like a great option if you are willing to deal with the 2 Stamp hassle and expense.
20" OAL SBR with 8" Integrally Suppressed Barrel.
Definitely Bad-ass and practical.

Link to the full video that gives a quick rundown on the Bullpup EVO, its origins, intents, and the direction it can be taken.

For those of us who avoid facebook like HRC avoids arrest;

This kit is SSsssss-lick!


Although I once owned a couple, I don't really have a SIGnature.

Interesting in a good way. Here’s a side by side with some OG Bullpups (X95 and KSG)next to my Scorpion. In Cali, OAL needs to be 30” so will need extra length muzzle brake to meet that req.

What is the origin of these pics?

Are you in possession of the conversion kit?

Just my collection but posting so folks can reference the scorpion next to an actual Bullpup. I likely won’t get it due to 30” Cali req for any semiautomatic rifle. If I stick a long  muzzle brake on that to meet req it won’t look that nice.

Wouldn't a thicker butt pad add length as well as a muzzle device? Might the combination of the 2 mods give you an aesthetic you can live with? CZ may even provide a kit for the hordes of Californians who would otherwise be denied?

In "I like shooting's" video interview with Sven, end of the year was mentioned as a possible introduction time for the conversion kit. We are close to the end of the year. Are we close to a release date?

Hyperpm - Where did you get that grip on your Scorpion. I picked up my CA Scorpion just after Christmas and I'm looking for a grip like that one. It looks like the Strike Industries grip I just ordered for my AR but I didn't see that on their site. Any help is appreciated.

The official timeline at the moment is 1st quarter 2019.

Is  there a plan for carbines to ship with the Bullpup kit factory installed?

As much as I like this bullpup kit, I don't know that I'm willing to give up my AK-style safety.  :o

@ Shot Show, CZUSA reps were claiming March availability and $399 MSRP.
