META Tactical Conversion Kit Turns Bullpup-Style Pistol into a Rifle: First Look

META Tactical, which designs, engineers and manufactures carbine conversion kits and shooting accessories, unveiled the META Tactical APEX-Series Carbine Conversion Kit at SHOT Show 2022 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The APEX-Series Carbine Conversion Kit (CCK) is the world’s first bullpup-style pistol-to-rifle conversion kit allowing you to shoot your pistol further and more accurately than ever before with the most responsive and compact platform ever created. This product has been designed, developed, and tested to be the most versatile and innovative conversion kit on the market while complying with all laws and regulations. This legal, non-NFA rifle configuration allows the shooter to shoulder the recoil without compromising ergonomics.

Designed to work with the most popular pistols used with conversion kits, the APEX-Series CCK is compatible with most Glock, Smith & Wesson and P80 handguns, is available in four colors (Black, Stealth Grey, OD Green and Flat Dark Earth) and will retail for $599.99. It’s bullpup-style configuration gives you all the accuracy of a traditional rifle without the length and displaces the handgun’s recoil from the hands and arms to the shoulder and makes the conversion easy. Simply swap out your barrel with the 16” barrel included in the conversion kit and then slide your handgun into the chassis through the hinged stock allowing you to quickly close the door and automatically lock the gun into firing position.

The META Tactical APEX-Series CCK is fully customizable as it features a 35 slot Aluminum NATO Picatinny Rail and M-Lok accessory system.

The APEX-Series CCK arrives at a time when the popular conversion kit market has been hampered by aggressive legislation and oversight. The APEX-Series kit includes a 16” barrel and chassis customized for each handgun including an extendable stock. The stock extends to 26”, which along with the 16” barrel make the APEX-Series CCK fully compliant and legal in all 50 states.
