anyone got one yet? I think I want one
Dang, didn’t realize how many were out there
Just buy the CZ scorpion!!!
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
Time for a SP5K!
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.
I support THIS!
I love my SP5k with folding stock (SBR)
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.
You guys have ruined me. I found one locally that I was willing to buy but the seller and I could come to a agreement on paperwork. He wanted copies and and I wouldn’t allow that. I told him we could go through a FFL and split the cost but he wouldn’t do that. So now y’all owe me a Hi point Bullpup.
Beauty is in the eye of the Hi point Holder.
Why ya hate’n,, Some
People think I’m ugly but they would be wrong
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.
Good to know. Now I have someone who can do one for me
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.
You know the drill,, post pics
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:
Got mine in today
I guess I'm late to the bullpup party. Who makes the stock?
High Tower Armory.
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.
So, I was reading this thread out of boredom and I looked around to see what Hi Point carbines sold for these day.
Hey, I remember looking at that bullpub stock some time ago. But it was a moot point since I no longer owned any HiPoints. They are cool looking for sure.
I bought one of the original Monkey Carbines thanks to @Geezer turning me on to it. I paid $75 for it. I put on a $30 red dot. New shooters Loved it. Firearms snobs [like me] came around once they shot it. We knew a lineman that found one in a roadside ditch. Rusted Completely up. Boxed it up and sent it to High Point...week later.. a brand new one.
Yeah when I still had mine I also had to send them in a few times and they really did always come back fixed with no questions asked. Trouble is mine just never worked all too reliably which is why they had to be sent in in the first place.
I bought my last one from here. You have to jump on them when they come in stock though, because they sell out quick at $250.
Dang only a 10 shot mag? Ant higher capacity?
Redball makes 20 rounders.
Get a stribog, 30 round mag is actually a reliable 32 round mag.
