They are just getting started.
All neat, and all expensive.

Walther G-22, a guy that pin shoots with me all ways beats me with one.

I love my SBR'd PS90 dearly. Between the rifle, the tax, mags/ammo, and the new barrel, I believe I have something like $2200 in it.

The AUG is supposed to be an outstanding bull pup design and probably is, if I am not mistaken our benevolent government doesn't allow them to be imported at this time.

There are two US AUG makers, and at least one is shipping rifles. MSAR StG556 and the AXR from TDP http://www.tpdusa.com/
There was also the Bushmaster M17, and a variant of both the Valmet and the AK in bullpup form. There's the Vulcan M47
An SKS Bullpup? http://www.rifletech.com/bullpup.htm
There are many many examples. Even Barrett has a bullpup or two.
There's also conversion kits for several rifles like the 10/22 and the Mini-14 from Muzzlelite.

Bullpup rifles generally have problems of some sort with triggers, since the hammer is some distance from the trigger. An aquaintence allowed me to fire his AUG, and I could not tell by firing the rifle that it was a bullpup, because the trigger was superbe. He expl;ained somethign, I forget what, and pulled the trigger group out of the rifle, it's modular. I would stay away from those AK bullpup conversions for the same reason, the triggers are so bad as to be dangerous, every example that I've tried. There is a delay from when the trigger is pilled to when the hammer releases. It's real creepy.

I used to have one of these and liked it fine, but it was a little bit heavy. This example shows a major scale optic, I used a reflex on mine. Not sure if these are still made but you should be able to find one at a gun show or maybe online: http://securityarms.com/20010315/galleryfiles/0900/979.htm
