    The Edgun matador seems to do the business in the hands of TED of Teds holdover. Can be got new from Europe I believe - Holland I think! With the strength of the pound could be a way to get it at reasonable money!

    Thinking about it I am sure I saw a HW100 pup forsale only a week or so ago, must have been on Gunstar or similar! The leftie bit may be an issue though!

    Look under GENERAL CHAT
    FX Rifle Question

    You can see from this, that the FX Bullpup with a smooth twist barrel is useless for FT.
    Its an excellent well made rifle, but would need a barrel change to allow it to group out to 55yds.

    The trigger is excellent, much better than the Edgun.

    At present only accurate for 40yds. This is coming back from a few people now and I have seen it myself on two separate rifles including my own.

    Looking at this as an ongoing project now!

    I've got the edgun matador, has to be the best rifle I have ever owned.

    It will group just as well as any steyr/ev2/super guns I have owned, but its so much more fun to shoot.

    The only place its lacking is the trigger, but it is a bullpup so that can be expected.

    If you email Ed he will ship directly to your door, and with the russian currency crashing not long ago now could be a good time to do it ;)

    Edit: 99% of the guns he makes are .22 but .177 do exist. I believe there are only 3 in the UK in .177 and one of those got converted to .22 - it took me 6 months of waiting to find one second hand.

    Before they packed in, GinB had started doing a range of bullpup stocks for various models including the HW100 and the Steyr. Might be able to find someone selling stock or full rifle.
