It certainly solves one of the major objections to a bullpup rifle. There's another ambidextrous bullpup design out too, can't recall the manufacturere at the mo, don't think they put it into production mind. Might have been magpul. Was discussed on here briefly a month or so back.

Three ambidextrous bullpups in rifle calibres of which I am aware, of which two are in production
FN Herstal's F2000
Kel-tec's RFB
and the non-firing-prototype-only Magpul PDR, which has been discussed on some thread previously - "Replacement for the SA80" or something like.

They all seem rather over-complex though - this seems to be a simple, elegant solution.

A solution the author Tony Williams has been banging on about for a few years. Interesting that the whole cheek piece moves over, I think just the forward half would be sufficient. But hey it's the guy's first ever design/protoype so kudos to him. Nice work.

Excellent picture and shows why Bull-pups are the 'solution' for arms designers who don't have the gumption to design a folding or telescoping stock for when you need to compact your gat
I take it you have never fired a folding stock FAL or similiar then?
Have you even fired a bullpup design?

A clever design. I can only assume that the ejection is caused by a bar that the case hits moving rearwords (as in the Browning 9mm pistols design) and when you rotate the cheek piece from one side to the other it slides the ejection bar/prong to the other side with it.
