    Why'd they scrap that shotgun anyway? I was hoping to use that gun in INF...

    Because it was almost identical to the M1 Benelli. Hence it was removed in favor of the Remington, which holds less ammo and is pump only, but is much less bulky.

    The_Fur is right, it's an SAR-21 Bullpup Assault Rifle. It fires 5.56mm NATO rounds.

    It is availible in a variety of configurations and attachments ranging from an M203 grenade launcher to Trijcon (sp?) Reflexive sight.
    BTW it rocks.

    There is a question i wanted to ask for quite a while : what does "bullpup" really mean ? I see the common point of bullpup rifles but could someone give me a precise definition ?

    Well the defination of a bullpup, is a weapon that's trigger mechanism is located behind the trigger itself.
    -----------
    But more on the SPAS-12.
    Yes it does look menacing, but I do like the sexy smoothness of the Benelli.

    If that was what defined a bullpup configuration, a handgun could be called a bullpup. That definition would also eliminate the P90 from the bullpup category because the clip on that bad boy is flush across the top of the gun with a helical injection bullet pick up.

    The true definition of a bullpup is any firearm in which the beginning of the barrel and the action are located behind the trigger mechanism. This is done mostly to conserve length, but, also to change the center of gravity and make muzzle rise and recoil easier to control.

    For a weapon to be a bullpup, the point at where the round is fired myst be located behind the trigger.

    The P90 is a bullpup, the AUG, unfortunatly (because it truly siols this category) is a bullpup, the FAMAS is probably the best bullpup around.

    The OICW is a bullpup too, but I'd hardly call it a gun, so we'll just call it "the toy". :D

    Don't forget the Jackhammer (since this thread started about shotties) ;)


    but I do believe the technical definition of a bullpup is a rifle where the action and magazine are placed behind the trigger.
