I have for a long time been interested in bullpups. I like the AUG a lot, love the Israeli TAR and would love to try out a FAMAS. I'm not big on the SA80, or the Chinese ones. My question is, are any of these (TAR, AUG, FAMAS) made by companies other than their original manufacturer. Kind of like I'd love to have an M4 made by Colt, but just can't justify the price; now I'm wondering if there is a cheap but reliable alternative to any of these? I live in Oregon, but the majority of bullpup rifles comply with standard regs and wouldn't need a tax stamp (not sure if that would matter but I'm throwing it in there). If there is such a thing, and it's not a total piece of junk I'd like to know more about it. Also if anyone has owned the "official/original" versions of those rifles (semi, or full auto). I'd like to know more about the ease of maintenance, and how your experience was overall with that weapon?
