    Probably a very good reason why nobody has done it.

    They are easy to set into a bullpup stock, but the difficulty always comes with the trigger arrangement, that's why Holly still shoots the 2002 he had built donkey's years ago, and believe me, he has tried LOTS of alternatives.

    When Holly bull-pupped his EV2 a few years ago I offered to make him an electronic trigger to finally sort out his major issue with bull-pups, the goodawful trigger.
    So I spent a month over Christmas building this mechanism and fitting it into his action before posting back to him.
    I thought it worked well, basically a trigger blade acting on a sprung microswitch actuating a small solenoid directly pushing the original trigger at the back of the action.
    Reliable and simple but Holly abandoned it after a few days as I think he missed the roulette of pulling the trigger and wondering when (or if) the rifle was actually going to fire.
    The thought of a bull-pup trigger that worked was too much for him as it would take away his main stay topic on all the forums he frequents...;)

    Hi Anthony, have a word with Warren Edwards, he may be able to help. Makes great bullpup stocks. Agree difficult to do linkage.
