ok, so i've designed a marker to be bullpup and right now it doesn't look to good and i don't think it is marketable. so i want to know what i can do to make peolpe(you guys) envy my one off design(jk, its designed to be massproduced). here are some pics of what it looks like right now.

Hmmm Not going to lie I kinda like it, first, i would make the front grip have space between it and the trigger frame. then i would just beef it up a little, right now it is great for being functional, but a little skimpy it looks kinda like a skeleton. That is really about it..for now

Nice idea and good first pass. I agree that you need more spacing between the foregrip and the trigger frame. Take a look at some real-world bullpup rifles like the IDF's Tavor, Steyer AUG, and the SA-80 for examples. The South African Vektor is also an interesting new design. You're off to a good start, just remember that ergonomics are key.

...looks like a Wii accessory :P...

you should give the grips a little more definition,bring the rails a bit closer to the body and do a little milling on the back "cube"...

other than that it looks fairly decent...good work.

It looks like it is designed for an Ion. If that is the case, lose the front grip, the reg has gotta go there. As for the stock, It looks like a block like version of the CX-Storm stock. CX-Storm stock on an autococker:

Also, maybe bring the stock closer to the frame, looks a little long, but I could be wrong.

And I gotta ask, it looks like there is a tube at the top of the butt-plate, does that serve any particular purpose?

Looks like a pretty good start though!

The little bar between grips should go.
I'd also favor a swept stock design.

Looking good.

I'd say to pull the stock closer by about 1-2 inches, and give it a gradual slope, since to me a straight to the back design seems kinda blocky and uncomfortable. Lose that bar between the forearm and the grip, and slide the forearm up 1-2 inches also.

The only problem i see other than that is that if it is a bullpup, the hopper is gonna be right in your face unless your using a rucksack or a q-loader, in which you would have a tube right in the back of the gun, making the stock near useless either way.

Some more info on specifics, such as air location, hopper location, etc. would be helpful for more advice.

the problem with looseing the bar is that i can't route wires through the top or bottom, so it needs that. also the trigger needs a trigger guard, so why not kill 2 stones with one bird. (yes, i am chuck norris)

Put the curve into the stock and the bark going ot the stock like the pic chaos posted. And spacing between the trigger frame and fore grip. Its definitely looking good.

Beef up the front part just a little bit (where the rails are) and make the foregrip sepreate from the triggerframe and that will be sexy as hell
