    Found this 'Uzi' grip assault rifle and these weird 'Ultra-Bullpup' assault carbines, Does anyone have an idea how the PM carbine works?, how does it reload being very far back?.

    The PM must have a pretty unusual bolt and locking arrangement, possibly even locking forward of the bolt face with some kind of stirrup shaped bolt.

    Is it just me, or does the top one look like just about the most uncomfortable gun to shoot ever?

    Almost, though it's probably the least comfortable design to come out in the past 300 years or so.

    That's an odd one; I'd have to think it works something like an upside-down Madsen, with a bolt hinged so that it swings up and down for each round.
    For "uncomfortability", my vote would probably go to the Swedish MKR; my hand gets cramped whenever I THINK about how this must've felt:

    Although it looks unusable, The 5.56 STANAG magazine is not that big for a grip, i can still get my finger round the front no problem, Even with a 7.62 FN FAL magazine.

    But a 'Magazine Grip' would suit an SMG/PDW more than a rifle. I guess id still like to see a 'Uzigrip' rifle accepted in service.

    Have a feeling its a delayed blowback weapon, dosent seem to have gas ports but somthing that looks like exposed 'roller locking lugs' just above the trigger area. The point of this weapon is to increase the speed of changing the magazines during a battle.

    i was once tolled that the PM used a vertical moving bolt and that a U-shaped grabber extracted and loaded each round, but hats just what i heard. Rumor has it that it actually worked very well but the plastic body couldn't handle cold weather.

    All that bakelite makes me wish I could still find AK-74 magazines.
