I saw one of those at a store a while back. Rudimentary sights, awkward...but really compact, too.
Has anyone used and actually liked those?

A friend of mine has one. I really don't care for it myself. Yes it is compact and fairly fun to shoot but the bolt release is very awkward to use and the sights suck. Put it throught it's paces and see if you like it my friend does.

I had one, sold it a couple months ago. IMHO, great idea-poor execution. The sights really suck and the plastic stock wasn't made very well. It functioned fine. Afterall it is just a M500 in wolf's clothing.

I replaced it with a M590A1. I'm much happier now.

No direct knowledge here, but I did handle and fire one of the High Standard bullpup shotguns years ago. While the concept may/may not have merit, it was clumsy as heck and slower to reload than standard shotguns.
