    Had one, didn’t impress me for the cost. We have known each other a long time. When you picture the Majic Man do you see me as a Hi Pount or CZ guy:)

    Friend out in Texas bought one for his 10mm and returned it, he claimed the trigger was awful verses the factory stocked rifle.
    I love the bullpup look and still toying with the idea of one in 45acp.

    So does everything hi-point have to be ugly as sin? I don't get it.

    I built one for a friend when they first came out. Good balance, garbage trigger, fun to shoot.

    I don't know. their new pistol is sort of endearing in a Blade Runner/Ghost In The Shell/dystopian future kind of way. Needs wood grips and a chunky compensator attached to the rail, pus some random painted lines on it and you'd be ready to take on Tokyo cyberhackers.

    I have the HTA stock on my 995 and I am planning on getting one for my 4595. I’m happy with it, I don’t find the trigger to be any worse than the trigger when the gun is in the factory stock.

    That’s a good looking rifle Sir. Did you do your own conversion?

    I did, it wasn’t complicated to install at all.

    I've waffled on whether or not to buy one and finally did. Mine came in today, and I haven't shot it yet, but here's my initial thoughts.

    Super easy to install. Takes 5 minutes, if that. If you have your action in the original Hi Point stock, most of the work will be getting it out.

    Charging handle spring feels a little weak. No biggie.

    Trigger has a lot of loose take up, but the actual weight probably isn't much different than the original.

    The design is well thought out and means you can actually field strip it without a bunch of tools, hex keys, and removing screws. Pull a takedown slide back, upper comes off. Two takedown pins and the action comes out.

    Rails are metal, as opposed to the original Hi Point plastic.

    Overall, pleased. Can't wait to try it out.

    Here it is pictured with my Starfleet issued TR-560 Tricorder.

    I'll probably post a full review once I get a chance to shoot it.

    I went with Arctic White, which is between white and grey, and might end up getting some fancy cerakote sort of in this space/industrial style:

    One thing I can say about Hipoint customer service and warranty is they are top notch. The carbine I put in the stock was one of the first (the take down screw had a hex nut on both sides) so couldn't use them in the stock. I had to use the take down pins from the other carbine I had with the TS stock (had to drill out the holes a little because they were slimmer than the other pins). Looked all over the internet trying to find the take down pins to replace the ones I had to use and couldn't find any. So called Hipoint to see if they sold them and they shipped the pins to me along with an extra at no charge including shipping. I can't even remember how long I have had that gun or even where I got it from lol.
