    Springfield's "Hellion" bullpup

    AKA the Croatian VHS-2. Looks like the bullpup fanciers will have another option:

    That came up in a Tavor group on FB. Can't say I'm overly impressed by how it looks, but it'll be interesting to see how it compares to other bullpups in the market.

    Watching this now, the gun guy in me wants one just to have it, the practical guy in me wishes it wasn't from Springfield and the MSRP is too much
    I perfer black coffee in the morning, bourbon in evenings and spending money on sh*t I probably don't need.

    Only two things wrong with the idea. SPRINGFIELD and BULLPUP.

    The good thing I guess, is it's just imported through Springfield and rollmarked Hellion. It's still a pure semi HS VH-2.

    Springfield has to bring these in with a CA-compliant type pistol grip and a weird 5 round magazine to comply with the "sporting purposes" clause of the 89 import ban. They obviously fix this stuff before sending them to retailers.

    The handguard is also US-made, and of course the PMAG is as well for 922(r) purposes.

    Without getting my hands on one I am impressed. The VHS-2 is a proven system, and as a lefty the total
    Ambi feature is awesome.
