    Hows this for cool!!

    • Uniform223

      That is pretty cool but being so used to military doctrine and style of things. I never see or understand the point for QCB on a rifle.

  • TheNotoriousIUD

    I like that stock.
    Wonder how big a pain it is to install.

    • Lawbob

      Easy. But I don’t need the buffer and spring, except to hold the buffer detent down so the bolt doesn’t go back. So it could be lighter.

    Dayum gurl

  • Budogunner

    When I read YHM Mite I thought, “Whaaaa…..?”

    Then I read “recored” and thought, “ah….ok.”

    • Lawbob

      It’s full ss baffle now.

    • Lawbob

      I have sparrow too

      • Budogunner

        That I can agree with. The only reason I have an Element is because SilencerCo and the Sparrow didn’t exist when I was in the market for .22lr suppressors.

    Bullpup chuckles as a traditional rifle tries to get shorter.

    • Grindstone50k

      I’m sorry, I can’t hear your bullpup over my ability to adjust my stock.

      • Dracon1201

        What? My full sized barrel, decreased size, great trigger, and improved balance makes it awfully hard to hear to your “normal carbine” crap. lol

        • Budogunner

          I have a bullpup, but I have to call shenanigans on the “great trigger” line. I’ve never felt a bullpup trigger as nice as a standard rifle. They do vary widely in quality by platform, but still.

          • Dracon1201

            Geissele Tavor and the M17 Trigger. RFB is pretty decent, too. I’ve felt good and bad triggers in every rifle.

          • st4

            This.

        • Cymond

          I recently held a Tavor and found it very butt-heavy, which I think is even more awkward than a conventional carbine. It would have been worse with a loaded magazine.

          • Dracon1201

            Sure, I feel that. The Tavor is also an overweight little bastard at about 8lbs. X95 will fix that if we can get it imported.

            Try getting used to the balance, it actually is a whole different beast out on the range.

            There are other bullpups that aren’t as extreme.

      • iksnilol

        What? I can’t hear you over how I am not a crybaby in regards to adjustable stocks.

        Seriously, you guys seem to consider the lack of a quickly adjustable stock a dealbreaker. News flash: We have been killing each other with rifles that didn’t have adjustable stocks without problems for centuries now. Sure, a quickly adjustable stock is nice. So are leather seats in cars. I like having them but I don’t consider it a dealbreaker if it doesn’t have it.

        + you can actually adjust bullpup stocks using spacers.

  • Lawbob

    .Oh. 4.5 pounds total.

  • Wetcoaster

    Looks Canadian

    • Budogunner

      Well, it does have a suppressor, so it IS polite.

      • Wetcoaster

        Ah, then it must not be. For some reason I thought it was a flash suppressor and missed the baffles part. I didn’t realize the NEA stocks had made it south

  • Budogunner

    Why the 9 inch barrel? Most people who go short with .22lr go under 5 inches or so as that keeps even standard ammo subsonic for cheap, quiet plinking.

    • Lawbob

      I had a 16″ barrel that I was going to cut. But tacsol now makes a 9″. It’s dedicated so it actually only sticks out from the receiver in similar length as to a 7-7-1/2″ barrel on an AR. The rail is a 9″.

      I use subsonic 22 so I didn’t care. Ever pickup an ar with a 5″ barrel? Where do you put your forward hand?

      • Budogunner

        Short barrels don’t make for safe c-clamp grips, that is true, but you can still operate the gun safely with a grip closer in to the receiver. A carbine length forearm still let’s you recess the can a bit and gives you a nice, tight PDW package.

        I didn’t mean the question as a criticism, though. I was honestly curious as .22 isn’t as cheap as it used to be, especially specialty stuff. I guess you are going for a trainer for a larger caliber rifle where you use a very forward grip, which makes total sense now. After all, savings on ammo doesn’t matter if you aren’t training how you would fight.

        • Robert

          I just decided not to fire cheap 22 anymore. Only copper washed, and I have a lot of subs already. I bet mini mags stay subsonic depending on the humidity and temperature. They do in my pistols of course. I have a lot of match ammo that is sub.

        • Lawbob

          I have the same build in 556. Without the pdw stock.

      • iksnilol

        Around the magwell.

  • Jack

    Handstop is on backwards.

    • Lawbob

      It’s however you prefer. I prefer not to blow my fingers off on an sbr

      • Lawbob

        Next comment I should say note the short rail. You aren’t going for full extension of left arm with a shorter rail. In my case I prefer the safety of the larger front to help with Accident prevention.

      • Lawbob

        Magpul web site shows it either way

  • Lawbob

    I love bullpups. Just not the price. What bullpup 22 are you referring to? I haven’t seen on for the keltec, tavor, steyr, or others yet.

    • Budogunner

      You can get a bullpup kit for the SKS for $200. That is the cheapest centerfire bullpup I know of.

      • Lawbob

        22
        That is the question

        • Cymond

          The are conversion kits on the market for various conventional rimfires (Hightower Armory, ZK-22, Centerbalance Systems). Plus, the Walther G22 was a bullpup (but I seem to recall it having a bad rep).
