    Right lads we need to sort this new bullpup PCP. It needs a fully shrouded barrel and a full length rail.
    Boss, I found this box section in the skip?
    Good job, screw the rail to it and spray it black, job done!

    @RobF Ech! Yes I'd forgotten about that one, a strong contender indeed. It's the grip and trigger guard that's most offensive to aesthetic sensibilities.

    I think the Benjamin abomination shades it though!

    Got to say though you wouldn't need to give them much wind at that power, I had a interesting 30 minuets looking at some of the guns, the pellets are almost as big as a mini kill ???

    Proving that an owner does indeed take after his gun, I'd like to propose our Rock Hero for this dubious accolade.
    Also this photo is from 2007 which also shows that he was one of the first to adopt gimp suits....;) IMG_3474.jpg

    Lol! I know what you mean. It’s got something, a bit of a sci-fi pulse rifle vibe. And at least they made an effort with the shroud and put those cutouts in to add some visual interest.

    There is a well known Turkish manufacturer who currently advertise some of the ugliest pcp's around and to top it off, one particularly ugly example even comes in 3 colours to enhance this further....

    Yeh, it's completely underwater knife fighting tacticool pulse rifle but at least it gets there...

    This isn't an airgun, but I was familiar with this in the late 80's, working in Germany for a short while. It was one of the more interesting things around the place. Being supposedly the new Nato weapon, looks weren't part of it's brief. But it shows you how old some designs are even though some may think otherwise.

    Oh yes I remember reading about that in a novel in the 80s. It was mentioned in a scene in Firefox Down, the sequel to Firefox (the movie where Clint Eastwood steals a Soviet fighter jet)
    Fascinating machine: caseless ammo, 3 round bursts at an insane cyclic rate while the whole action recoils back on rails inside the plastic stock, like a full-auto TX200SR!
