Assault Rifle Konstantinov SA-01 3D Model
The interest in the then-unorthodox bullpup layout appears to have been quite common within Soviet small arms design bureaus back at the day. Alexander Konstantinov, a designer working at another one of these well-known entities – the Vladimir A. Degtyaryev Plant, headquartered in the city of Kovrov – designed several quite unusual bullpup rifles during all throughout the 1960s.
One of these, dubbed the SA-01, was submitted to factory tests in 1963: its main goal was to come out with a rifle that would be just as much controllable in off-hand full-auto shooting as possible. To achieve it, the SA-01 was designed as an “inverted bullpup”, with a pistol grip located above the receiver.
