Thinking of investing in one of Rapid70's bullpup kits. Looking for feedback from anyone who's had experience with the vendor and /or the product. I'm a little concerned about ergonomics because I'm a lefty. Wondering if the magazine will interfere with cheek weld. Also concerned with length of pull as far as what others think about shootability with such a short, shoulder fired gun. I own a Mutant short and I have no problems with the size of that gun but this one seems smaller still which is why I'm fascinated with it.

there's a chance that, as a matter of fact ,you may own that very same gun ,since I've sold it to another member of this forum,maybe 2 years ago .

Here's a picture of the serial number of that gun,so you can confirm if it's the same b/p

Hi there,

you'll need to get used to the short length ,but,is very manageable ,and also,since you're left hand shooter,the magazine sticking out to the right side ,might be an issue for you .

There's an easy fix for it,in the way of using of a single pellet tray ,which is what I'm using at the moment .

The rig is very light weight,which is perfect for hunting in hilly areas ,or ,to carry it in a back pack ,or boat/kayak .

"All that being said,since you already own a Taipan mutant short,I would stick to that gun ".

The only sacrifice would be the extra 5 inches longer,but you gain more shots,and more power with the Taipan .

I've owned a Taipan mutant short,so ,I know .

I bought my Prod already converted to what it looks like now,everything barely used ,and then,added a Robert Lane regulator and I've got some internal work done as well .

After all the stuff is added,you'll end up putting out the same money you pay for the Taipan,and,the Taipan short will smoke the prod any day of the week .

Hope these comments will help somehow to decide if it's worth it .

Is up to you Chief !

Good luck .

I also have a Mutant short, and a Rapid 70 kit added to my Prod and a bunch of other modifications done to it as well. Sometimes I consider selling the Mutant just because I find the Rapid P easier to aim, smaller, lighter, and just as accurate (although at much shorter distances) and I'm also not concerned about it getting bumps and bruises like i am with the Mutant. The Mutant is the far superior machine, with much more power etc but I can't honestly say that I like it more. When I purchased it the Rapid mod was already done to it so I cant comment on if it was better as a pistol or not.
