    Considering the L85 is generally regarded as a steaming pile of crap and only ever adopted in it's home country........

    None of the above.

    An Airsoft gun maybe. The AUG is the only common bullpup in this country really and they have almost nothing in common.

    The L85A2 has supposedly fixed most of the L85's issues, but I'd doubt that without running at least a thousand rounds through one myself.

    If I was going to go bullpup, I'd go with a FNS 2000 or wait on the Tavor.

    I forgot about the AUG. A fine choice too!

    AUG might be the way to go.

    AUG is about the only way to go as far as availability wise. You may be lucky to find a Valmet or NORINCO bullpup AK, or a semiauto FAMAS in which a handful that was imported before the Bush Daddy import ban set in.
