I have owned both in .25. Still own the carbine, because I found out that I just do not like the bullpup platform. Sold the bp to a friend, whom I compete against with the carbine that I now use. Sometimes he wins and sometimes I do. The bp had been power tuned by Charlie and is probably a little more guilt edge accurate than my carbine. I say it that way because both guns are really accurate. My carbine was not power tuned and shoots MK II's at about 850fps, using nitrogen (great setup). Power tuned bp's shoot 890-920fps. In order to power tune a carbine, the air tube is generally replaced with the shorter .22 caliber air tube, to allow room for the larger plenum. Therefore, I decided to accept the factory velocity, which is sufficient. For me the carbine in .25 is perfect. Good luck with your decision.
