Bullpup History:  SA80-L85A2






Experimental Bullpup rifles were developed in the 1940’s in England from the Royal Small Arms Factory.  The EM1 and EM2 were chambered in .280, which led to their downfall, as NATO standardization preferred 7.62x51mm.

But in the late-sixties work began on another Bullpup design, and by the mid-seventies prototypes started trials.  And this time, when NATO standardized the 5.56x45mm cartridge, the prototypes were rechambered to match.

The SA80 was accepted into service by the British Army in 1985.

The new rifle had issues and were being reported as unreliable and fragile.  Reports and studies were done, and in 2000, Heckler & Koch was contracted to upgrade the SA80’s.  Two hundred thousand were re-manufactured, producing the A2  (redesigned cocking handle, modified bolt, extractor, and a redesigned hammer assembly), distinguished by the “HK A2” marking on the top of the rifle, just forward of the butt plate.

Just a few years ago, Daniel Defense added an accessories rail, and Magpul’s polymer EMAG was contracted.
