    Which Bullpup would you consider the most Trouble-free and Accurate?   Everybody probably has their own opinion and experience with various bullpups, but I am trying to see if there is some sort of a consensus out there.

    Trouble-free:  no serious/recurring issues affecting normal operation of current product line.  If there were some problems these were already resolved by the manufacturer.
    Accurate:   4 out of 5 groups that are under 1/2 inch (5-shots) at 50 yards AND 4 out of 5 groups that are under 1.5 inch (5 shots) at 100 yards.

    I am going to say the Cricket 22, or 177, 0r 25, Just get on the TAG form, Never do here a problem about the Crickets ,
    Only screw ups from the owners,, Never the gun.
    That’s my two cents,
    I started out with a 25 Marauder, bought a 22 Cricket, missed the 25 , So I bought a 25 Cricket, 
    My Marauder is a dam good shooting gun just could not sell for the low going price of the used ones, I am making it a bullpup now , And War (Jim Gaska)  will no me by my name before its over or have my credit card number  down pat, LOL.

    DAYSTATE PULSAR – and a big plus, a three year warranty!

    My vote goes to the single shot Edgun Matador. Very reliable, and built like a tank.
    I really can’t understand why people are saying “Daystate Pulsar” because it has just been released, and still has to prove itself over the upcoming years. Tracking record = 0.
    The crickets are very fragile, the pins used are way too thin IMO. A club member had a sheared off pin, and the remaining part had to be taken out by EDM machining.
    As far as accuracy goes, I think they are all great shooters. Just a matter of taste which one you prefer. The crickets sure have great accuracy potential, especially the .25cal.

    Get a Cricket, no extra baffles, batteries, electronics, mags store in the stock. They are 30.00 and available. Quiet out of the box. easily tuned, torn down.  Video support, and a talented reasonable tuner. I’m shooting 3 mags, at almost 60 FPE, 4 mags on the .22 can get a few more regged shots out of each. The .25 for sale in designer snake is pretty enticing.  PS no affiliation with the seller, and the last gun I would sell would be my .25

    I’m def interested in the .25 Vulcan for 2016.  Heard nothing but good stuff about them.  The latest gen is suppose to be quieter than the initial gen too.

    Questions for ya’lls…anything you guys know coming in 2016 that might be worth waiting for? I’m talking about bullpups.

    I own a .25 Vulcan half in groups at 50 yards are no problem. I’ve had no problems with the gun so far I’ve had it since July and probably put 1000+ rounds through it. Any thing I’ve ever heard that was wrong with it the manufacture fixed. I do not shoot at a hundred yards very often but i did pull off a half in group which was amazing. my average group at a hundred is probably is about 1.5 in at 100 yards with it. This gun is a total beast and I would definitely recommend it.

    Yep. The cricket or the Vulcan. Both excellent choices, rugged guns, no issues. I have the cricket and after putting close to 1000 shots through it, am planning to get a Vulcan. It’s smaller, lighter and as accurate as the cricket.

    Interesting…so far it’s pretty much the Cricket and the Vulcan.  The Pulsar may be the top of the line and may be the best out there, but I agree with “weatherby” that it just does not have enough track record yet.  The same thing goes for the Impact too as the initial bugs are getting worked out.

    For further posts, can you also posts which bullpups would not fit the criteria?  Would like to know which models were considered but did not make the criteria. Not to knock any other models/brands, but would be great to see a pattern of proven guns vs. guns with perceived issues.

    I’ve got about 8000 rounds thru my Cricket .22 and have had no issues with the gun so far.  I do believe i suffer from POI shifts as AT pressure goes down my groups are .5 inches out to 50 yards, and would recommend it to friends.  I’m looking to purchase a .25 cal but don’t want to of the same guns around the house so the choices right now are (Vulcan tactic, Impact, or Wildcat) I really do want to experience the  smooth twist barrel and see what all the hype is about.  But as far as proven track record the Bobcat maybe a safer bet for myself.

    I say the cricket also. I’ve owned both cricket and Vulcan which are awesome guns. I find the cricket to be better balanced and much easier to shoot off hand. The cricket is quieter, better shot count and can make more power out of the box. The Vulcan is more compact and has some very nice ergonomics. Both are very reliable from my experiences.

    The most trouble free generally means the simplest design & easiest to work on. I’d have to say the Edgun Matador single shot.

    Cricket .25 cal and Edgun .22 cal have been the best in my house out of the many different airguns I have owned.

    Yes Sir, my apologies for not specifying I was speaking of .25.  I also have a .22 compact that shoots lights out.

    Here’s another vote for the .22 Vulcan.

    I simply cannot complain about a single thing.   And I’ve read every word about it in the different forums, and there haven’t been any problems at all.  Only complaints about loud pinging on the first generation, but the ping is no longer a concern with the current models.
