Bullpup rifles are popular for a lot of reasons but getting your hands on one can be a financial nightmare as some of the most popular models of bullpup rifles and pistol caliber carbines can be pretty expensive. The META Tactical APEX-Series Carbine Conversion kit was showcased earlier this year at SHOT Show 2022 and claims to be the world’s first bullpup-style pistol-to-rifle conversion kit. The APEX-Series claims to be able to convert your Glock, Polymer80, or Smith & Wesson handgun from its normal pistol configuration, into a 16″ carbine on the fly.
