Galahad vs s410 bull pup kit?

Sun Jan 28, 2018 12:32 pm

Hi fellow air gunners, I have a bullpup itch that needs scratching, as of late a couple of galahads have come up forsale at a good price, now I've had my 410 for about 8 years and I love it like a child but as time goes on we all need a change.
So do I go for a second hand Galahad and then run the risk I leave it at home because I feel quilty for replacing my old trusty, or go for the bullpup kit for the 410? I've never handled a converted 410 so I need some peoples opinions on them, one of the things that does pup me off about the kit is the bolt being right back and not ideal for those moments we all hate where a quick follow up shot is needed.

Hope someone can help ;)

I had a bullpup itch and bought an FX Bobcat. That solved the problem - never want to touch a bullpup (or smooth twist barrel, or anything made by FX) ever again.... :(

Stick to your S410...

Bullpups are only necessary if you drive a G-Wiz.

I tried a Craftsman Vit bullpup conversion on my AA400. It lasted a week before I sold the conversion kit. The linkage made the trigger awful, there was no feeling to it at all. It was like squeezing a wet sponge. The workmanship of the stock itself was great but not for me I'm afraid;
Good luck with whatever you decide.

Brill thanks for your reply, think I'm going to treat my prosport to a tuning kit and a new scope instead, I like the idea of a bull pup but in reality I don't think I really warrent one as I've made it through 25 years of shooting without one.
