Video — Strange bullpup Rifles

The world is a big place and it’s easy to get tunnel vision regarding small arms. The fact is, we live in a Glock, AR and AK world. But there are many people who do not. The Singapore City State military issues an indigenous bullpup rifle as their standard infantry arm. This video does a good job of showing it.
