What the OEM Hi-Point stock should have been!
I like to have a same-caliber carbine/rifle for each of my handguns, and after I built a Polymer80 G20 clone, I picked up a Hi-Point 1095 10mm carbine because, well, it's just impossible to pass up a 10mm carbine for under $400.
Being a heavy, ugly carbine, and with the price of ammo these days, the 1095 ended up sitting more in my vault than getting used for plinking, but then I remembered seeing High Tower Armory's bullpup conversion stock, and it was in stock, so I picked one up... I opted for the black version, although I was mighty tempted by both the Star Wars Stormtrooper white version, as well as the desert tan (and FDE), but in the end, I wanted traditional black.
Install is super-easy, and definitely makes the Hi-Point look like a modern bullpup. Length of pull is just right (at least for me), and balance is good -- better then with the OEM stock. The action works smoothly, although it doesn't love feeding the first round with flat-nose bullets (but after that first one, the remainder feed without any issue).
I like having the magazine release adjacent to the trigger, and the trigger pull, by the way, is pretty good. It's no better than the OEM trigger, but not markedly worse, either. Let's just call it satisfactory, and move on, OK?
The only downsides are minor -- I don't like the way the magazine sticks out of the stock, and it's still a bit heavy for its size. Weight does help mitigate recoil, and with no padding my shoulder takes a bit of a beating shooting more than a half-dozen or so magazines of full-power 180 grain loads.
I put a combo reflex/laser sight on top, and accuracy is amazing. If I had one wish for this weapon in general, it would be for a magazine with higher capacity than the OEM 10 rounds... anyone? C'mon!

If you're on the fence about getting the HTA bullpup, don't hesitate -- do it! You will not have any regrets! Just choose your color wisely!
