Has anyone done one?  I think its the perfect candidate for a bullpup as you wouldn't have to do a linkage and the ammo clip would be in front of the trigger.

Zip,
A bullpup is a rifle or shotgun....a longarm.  Handguns can't be bullpups.
A Charger in a bullpup stock would be a SBR.

I understand your train of thought, but when the magazine is in front of the trigger (on this platform), it's not a Bullpup by definition.

What you're suggesting is a shoulder fired pistol, and by doing that it becomes a SBR issue, as BATTLED said...

This is what I want to make.

As you can see , the design of the stock requires the ammo either be loaded from the top or as my train of thought goes use the Charger and just have the ammo in front of the trigger.  So yeah I guess technically it wouldn't be a bullpup.  But thats the stock design is my favorite.

That's a high-end air rifle Bullpup.

It reminds me of the highly accurate, and extremely rare Walther WA2000:

Yeah I like that Walther. Its the only manufactured bullpup that I have seen that has wood in its stock besides the airguns.

I called up the guy behind Ironwood Designs a couple months ago and had a great chat with him about purchasing one of the last of his WA2000 stocks. He's quite proud of his product. There's a lot that goes into it, as you have to source the barrel through him, send him your receiver and trigger group, it takes time for him to fit everything just so, etc. I'm sure it's a quality product.

Alas, his normal business is replacement stocks for AKs. It leads to some long gaps in correspondence. We exchanged emails once and then he stopped replying.

Lets forget the Charger bullpup idea as someone pointed out it becomes a SBR and that requires an ATF form and a $200 BS tax

Plus an easier way for me to get that same style stock bullpup would be to go with an old tube fed .22. So even cheaper  :-)

Actually there are such things as bullpup pistols. They aren't exactly carry guns as we would think but they technically qualify as a bullpup pistol. The bushmaster ARM is one (see pic) and Center balance system makes a bullpup stock for the Draco AK pistol. Then there is this little thing, It still feeds rounds out of the grip but it does so backwards to move the "action" back behind the grip. I've shot it and it is an extremely short handgun.

 my charger  not a bullpup but. It does what it needs to do.  I just picked up a badger bullpup stock so this is going to be sold to replace oney spent on badger stock and bull barrel purchases.    Just showing to give everyone something different.

Sold the charger and went with the badger bullpup stock. Super sweet.  I also got 16 inch threaded barrel which makes for a nice gun.  I still have my ati collapsible stock.  I my do another build or just sell.  That badger weighted so nice.  The balance point is right over the grip so weapon shoulders well.

Thanks I have gone through various changes .  That stock was taken off and I put a 16 inch threaded 1022 I on the badger bullpup.  Great set up! Super easy to take down very compact and accurate shooter.

https://www.badgerm22.com/

I have since set my charger up on the OEM poly stock with 1913 rail attachment,  left hand charge receiver tactical  innovations,  sb tactical folding brace and a franklin armory binary trigger.

It really is a nice compact very shootable package.   If volquartsen made a carbon light wieght barrel at 10.5  inch threaded it would be super light weight.

Soon I have to sell those stocks and reciver bits.

This one is my keeper.  Its the beat of both worlds.  Compact easy to carry. Accurate!  And the binary trigger tons of fun.
