High Tower Armory just took the wraps off a new bullpup conversion that they will be producing for the… Hi Point Carbine. Yes, the Hi Point Carbine. Before you wander off mumbling under your breath, this might actually make some sense.
Hi Point’s pistol caliber carbines are 1) numerous, 2) affordable, 3) generally reliable, 4) generally accurate, 5) have 20 round magazines available, and 6) exceedingly ugly. This conversion would reduce the overall length without the need for a tax stamp, improve the optic and light mounting options, and go a long way toward improving the looks (which is important to some people whether you like it or not).
High Tower Armory hasn’t released pricing yet but they have stated that this conversion and the carbine itself could be put together for around $500. It may not be your cup of tea but there is likely a market for this conversion. It could be a solid improvement to a carbine that performs beyond its price point.
