no this isnt which gun is better then that and so forth

for example m16
clips are in front of the trigger

Clips and rounds are loaded from the back of the weapon

in effectiveness does it make that much diffrence

1. the weapons firepower
2. accurecy of weapon

whats the best config for a assult rifle?

i have used weapons in both configurations and niether was better that the other in trems of firepower or accuracy. the key advantage to the bullpup( mag to the rear ) is that it is shorter than a rifle of compariable barrel length, making it a more compact and easy to use package in a confined space( urban combat) .

I'd have to argue it depends on application in combat. Bullpops afford you a longer barrel and still hold a small size, but then there is the argument that if there is a malfunction your face is right next to the ejection port... sigh.

Depends on application. An AK-47 might be terrible for CQB, while an MP5/7 would work wonders. A Tavor might be better than an M4 for uban warefare, while an M4 has more upgrades at this moment. An AK-47 might be better for third-world countries, an M4 might be better for the USA (both examples for ammunition abudances).

To me bullpops are very loud-- something I had to get used to-- but they are nice because of the longer barrel while still holding the small size.

It's application in my opinion. Now a REALLY awesome rifle that just came out is an FN-FAL short version that can be used for CQB and pack a huge punch-- forgot the magazine but it was arguing it's SWAT applications (I think it was the last issue of Military and Police Weapons or something).

I don't know if this is the same model as in the magazine-- looks identical--it is a monster of a weapon!

Here is the Tavor I mentioned, it's Israel's new outstanding bullpop:

Another cool IMI toy from Israel:

A very cool new rifle from HK modeled after the M4: " target='_blank' class='tabOff'/>

And my personal favorite as an HK nut:

Who said you should leave cases behind when instead of buying a car you can get a G11?

But honestly unless you're in the military or etc you're probably not going to get to shoot most of these and that includes me

IMHO the best, and most effective configuration is a high capicity magazine, and nice Iron Sights. My 30-30 is perfectly accurate, and is very handy. Also there is no scope or fancy equipment to get in the way of things.

I vote for bull pup might not be as comfortable from what i have heard but you get a compact rifle.

I carried the M16 in the army and i really didn't like it. I feel there are a number of better weapons out there. I carried the M16A1, M16A2, and the Shorty M4. They all felt like toys and sometimes they acted like toys, You always had to clean them, and the tiniest bit of carbon and that thing would take a crap on you.

I just bought the FN FS2000 and i love it it is bull pup. This is the civillian version.

I wish I had the military version instead of my M16 when I was in the Army.

Beside the Brits using a Bull Pup, the Frech, Austria, Oman, China to name a few carry a bull pup. It is a great combination of a compact weapon that has full range effectiveness.
