Very cool.

I am curious as to the break-down/cleaning process for this bullpup shell, as well at the trigger feel.

the whole thing is very simple. there is a long "bar" (for lack of a better word) that connects the current trigger to the kit trigger. other than that, it's just a plastic mold that holds the old trigger assembly, receiver, and barrel. there is a vertical seam, and the whole thing is held together by a bunch of screws.

assembly video here.

the one guy on the show i actually liked was the guy who designed this one. haven't watched the show since a couple after the one debuting this stock. that daughter and her stupid boyfriend are so annoying.

I'm there with Venom, except maybe not as venomous as "despise".

I will have to hand it to them though, that is pretty nice looking. Now that you have it all together how is the trigger?

still don't have it together. the wife's mother just found out she has cancer, so i've been spending my time consoling my wife and haven't had time for gun stuff lately.

according to the video, the trigger should be completely adjustable.

My favorite fun gun

My favorite fun gun is my Walther G22. I think my next firearms purchase shall be a can for it.
The booklet that comes with it lists the Walther can for the G22, which one can purchase over the counter in Europe.

The G22 is the perfect host for a can, Both the iron (plastic) sights and the scope sit up high off the bore. Even with a decent can it will still be shorter than a standard rifle.

My only real complaint is the trigger, due to the long linkage. I have the integrated Walther laser for it too.

Great little gun, and darned accurate.

just finished assembly. not impressed. the operation of everything is very sticky. the charging handle sticks in the reward position, despite the heavy pressure on it from the 10/22 charging handle. the trigger is EXTREMELY heavy and mushy. the mag release sticks.

i think that was the plan, but they settled on 22lr due to its wide availability.

new products some times need a final fit and finish buy the end user. As far as the trigger thats what you get when you add a 10" flexible rod to your trigger group. I have never seen anything but mush out of a bullpup trigger.

That's too bad you are not having very good luck with it. Hopefully they can get it figured out for you. It does look REALLY nice though. Kinda makes me wanna get a 10/22.

I have heard only negative about bullpup triggers so if it is not too bad after they work on it be sure to let us know.

Will do. I love my other bullpup. The trigger is fine. No marksman's hair trigger, but it's a cqb rifle not a target rifle.

should be getting it back today. Joe said there was some debris in the charging handle and that the trigger needed a little less cam and a lot more graphite. He didn't say anything about the mag release. hopefully, he unjammed that as well.
