New quarter bore bullpup.

Well its been a long road to get a 25. bullpup built, over a year.
I started out with a BSA lonestar 25. I did not like the all steps in cocking the gun.
And I found out its too hard to set one as a bullpup.

The best way would be with a electric trigger, & I did not want to go that way with the gun.
So I sold the gun.

Then I heard the early talk of maybe a 25. M-rod.
Well then I had to have one.

I was making the stock one day, & made one wrong cut,then all my hard work 20 hours was gone.
The stock became firewood, lol.

So back at it I went, this time, again almost a wrong cut. But I did not make the cut, & saved the day.
Now on to the finishing of the stock, so I used tung oil for the first time.
I first put on too much, & had to redo the whole thing again.

So after about 60- 70 hours here she is my 25. M-rod bullpup.
And now I get to shoot her, she been apart, during the whole build.

Nice job Buddy !! Now that's functionality at it's finest. I like the double barrel band to use as a scope base. Clever !! Bunnies beware.

Seriously nice work. You've got to be proud.

A question: have you mounted the bipod on "backwards" in order to get it closer to the end of the stock? I've seen a few Russian boys mount them this way on their Edguns. It seems to me that having it retracted against the gun stock would make difficult to handle...

Great work! Are you gonna make anymore? I've been looking for an alternative to my Talon that doesn't need the tank removed and doesn't cost as much as the Edgun.
