Bullet button would be required obviously.

Video (check out the spent case ejection out the muzzle end)....

What's the advantage of that type of case ejection? It's a cool rifle, but seeing the brass kind of dribble out of the front of the gun is a little odd!

It's a bullpup. The advantage is there's no ejection port next to your face.

I take it you have never seen FN's FS2000 (http://www.fnhusa.com/products/firearms/model.asp?fid=FNF011&gid=FNG006&mid=FNM0030)...

The ejection port is just behind where the barrel leaves the action.
There are 3 or 4 fired cases in the gun at any time.

Good for right or left handed shooters. Normally, a bullpup is only good for one or the other.

Try shooting at an upwards angle and see if it ejects.....

I thought the same thing.
It works at all angles, even upside down.

And why not a .223 version? They probably learned from their mistakes with the SU and can make a reliable .223 bullpup.

It almost seems like they are run by a bunch of engineers.

being a lefty I don't like most bull pup designs for that reason. I saw this one and I would love to have one.
