    Stupid Unsafe Rifle

    Why the fuck would you go to all the effort of chopping up a SKS to make a bullpup and leave the original trigger exposed to being caught on shit and the gun firing? Even more so in that there's the big link attached to the front of the trigger making it even more likely to catch.

    OMG! Storm trooper SKS Bullpup Blaster! | Trade Me

    Imagine carrying or using the rifle. That big link on the original trigger is rubbing on your belt, pack straps etc. and wide open to sticks, vines or whatever catching on it and pulling the trigger.

    Apart from being a waste of a SKS, he has made it dangerously unsafe. The rear trigger needs to be completely enclosed before it could possibly be safe enough to sell. The rifle would still be stupid though.

    It is possible that it is not connected so may be quite safe

    Is it not just as vulnerable as any other trigger?

    A big link and a bolt sticking out wider than the trigger guard between your body and your elbow makes it a fucking lot more vulnerable.

    I don't see any link? What tells you the link is exposed?

    Scratch that.. I see it now, still I don't see why the rifle is anymore dangerous than anything else, shouldn't be carrying it around loaded anyhow

    It's also ugly and prevents the use of stripper clips. There are much better (and cheaper) options.

    200 USD for the Shernic Gun Works offering, even after importing and modification to make it A-cat, I think you'd still be coming in at less than $1100 for the whole thing.
