Grant Cunningham’s Take on the Bullpup Rifle

    Grant Cunningham

    Author and firearms trainer Grant Cunningham put together a series of articles on bullpup rifles for defensive purposes. Grant takes a close look at the use of bullpup rifles generally and the Steyr AUG specifically.

    Grant has been a long-time user and advocate of the FAL rifle, but is also very skilled with the use of other platforms including the AR. However, he had never taken a long, hard look at bullpups. In this series, he spends months with the Steyr AUG to learn how the platform differs from the traditional defensive rifles.

    The series of articles goes far beyond the typical internet bickering of my X is better than your Y because reasons. I recommend reading through the series if you have any interest in rifles for any kind of defensive use.
