Seems like you have at least a little experience with this genre of rifle. Would you mind writing your thoughts about each rifle you do or have owned and shot? Balance, accuracy, reliability, triggers, and any other considerations on how functional they are and what purposes or roles you would see them excelling and failing in? I may be asking too much.... But hopefully not..  :D

It is a lot to ask for!  :)  Let's start though with which rifles you are referring to...the shorties or the XMs and the Dissy?

Well.... I like the idea of bullpups for having the small overall length while maintaining the overall barrel length. But they are all pretty pricey. So I am interested in them. Then then others in and how they compare, or if they should be compared for similar roles. Does that help or make sense?

This will be quicker answer than what you expected am at the car line. I have to say that I buy what I think I will like. So whatever I currently own, are more or less keepers. None of these are the same and each have an interesting feature, roots or development history. As an example of interesting development history, the Galil Ace has of course one that goes in parallel almost with the very history of the Israeli nation. The PS90, it's design that's way ahead of its time, so way ahead that it's still used in current sci-fi shows.

As far as cost is concerned, while bullpups can be pricey, so are SBRs, after paying for the stamp and the wait. Even those with braces end up to be several hundred dollars over its base price. As far as overall like, fun guns, the PS90 and the subs suppressed are  probably the best to have. They're portable, they can deliver a punch depending on ammo, and they go pssck, psssck, pssck.

Thanks for explaining! That definitely sheds some light on it.

PS90 is soooooo much fun to shoot. 5.7 isn't cheap though. Especially with how fast you're going to want to shoot the PS90.

Not sure but there's a company that sells bullets (haven't seen casings) so some entities may be into this. (Company is Elite Ammunition)

Yes 5.7 is reloadable, components are not cheap though.

Ok I'm having a brain fart right now. What's the rifle on the far left?  I know the rest. My mind is blanking on the other one and it's driving me nuts.
