Look like somebody has had a bit of fun with Photoshop!
OK I'v seen several other threads about prototype HK bullpups but I'd never seen this one before. An HK33 bullpup! I dont care for the AR style sights, but the rest of it looks pretty cool IMHO.
If you wanted to build a clone of this, it looks like the only thing that would be hard to replicate is the forward trigger/pistol grip, and however its linked to the trigger pack.
As to the linking of the trigger?
Is there an other photo of the opposite side?
Just my thoughts but linking of the trigger would require an exterior vertical length rod and/or link back to some exterior portion of the trigger pack I would think that this would be visible.
Building it to facilitate riding in side interior would require modifications to the receiver - trunnion - magazine weld - trigger pack.
Could be done but lots of work.
It would be easier to run a cable, like a bicycle brake cable, and maybe run it outside the exterior rail of the receiver, then just slips inside the forearm. If it could be done without modifing the upper receiver then the whole bullpup kit would just be the furniture, and any 93 upper could be made into a bullpup.
Yep, that's a Thai made version. Here yet another pic:
Yes, I love it! You can see the rod running along the side of the receiver into the forearm. It does not seem to hard to make, especialy using a tri rail forearm.
I see 3 problems with this setup. First it adds about 5"-6" to the LOP, second the gun would be very back heavy, third without that AR style carry handle you face is going to be right above the ejection port. But the cool factor outways all of that.
Shows how much you know straightgrain.

Maybe you could use some Bike brake wire to link the trigger to the trigger mech in the back... just an idea, I guess it would be a little sloppy.
"ma man, ma man, w-w-w-whats dis thing wit' all dese numbas?"
Just as fugly as this one by Armament Research:
I admit that my knowledge is limited in MANY areas. That said, the original photo is most certainly Photoshopped. Wanna play "spot the errors"?
