Just because it's a bullpup doesn't mean the barrel is extremely long. The FAMAS barrel is only 472mm. It was more accurate than my G36 with a 494mm barrel.
I think, similar to the P90, it has more to do with the floating barrel. P90s are also insainly accurate for their size.
As for a first gun, I wouldn't get a FA-MAS as one. As a reliable secondary, definetly.
