Colion Noir Turns A Glock 19x Pistol to rifle with APEX Kit

Colion Noir, a renowned firearms enthusiast and YouTube personality, recently took to his channel to share his thoughts on the META Tactical APEX Carbine Conversion Kit. In his review, Noir discussed the many positive aspects of the kit, which he used to convert his Glock 19x into a bullpup rifle.

“Some of the advantages that come with the Bullpup are essentially that you get a 16-inch full-length barrel but in a platform that maneuvers like an SBR. The beautiful thing about this particular chassis, though, is you don’t have to submit this to the ATF and do all the paperwork and do all the other nonsense to get what essentially is an SBR. This is the entire package with a 16-inch barrel.”

In his review of the APEX Carbine Conversion Kit, Noir praised the kit for its high-quality construction and overall performance. He noted that the kit was easy to install and that it provided a significant improvement in accuracy and stability over his standard Glock handgun.

“Now, on top of that too, one thing I really liked about this system is it’s really high quality. It’s this polymer frame, but it’s done really, really, really well. The lines are really clean. As you can see, there are a lot of bolts and stuff like that that really, honestly, kind of speak to how rigid and sturdy it’s not the right word, but this gun doesn’t feel flimsy.”

Noir also commented on the aesthetics of the kit, noting that he was impressed with the overall design and look of the bullpup rifle. He specifically praised the gray color of the kit and mentioned that it is available in other colors as well.

And so, I think that’s one of the things about this gun that I think works really well, is it adds some good range towards it. But even then, for somebody who has, say, for instance, two Glocks, and they want to set one up to maximize its potential, they have one where they can still carry, and maybe they don’t necessarily have two thousand dollars to spend on a pistol caliber carbine.”

While Noir had many positive things to say about the APEX Carbine Conversion Kit, he did mention one area where he felt the kit could be improved. Specifically, he noted that the safety on the kit was not his favorite and that it was not as intuitive as he would have liked.

Despite this minor criticism, Noir was effusive in his praise for the APEX Carbine Conversion Kit, calling it a “very high-quality system” that he “liked quite a bit.” He went on to say that the kit was “really high-quality” and that he had to “nitpick” in order to find anything negative to say about it.

So, there’s something to be said about that. I’m not saying you’re going to go to 100 yards and be able to create a one-inch group at 100 yards with this thing. That’s not what this thing is about. This is something that’s designed to maximize the platform as much as possible and give you the extra added benefit of having four points of contact with a 16-inch barrel. You’ll be able to add accessories that you otherwise wouldn’t have, and you can load additional mags inside of the accessory port that allows you to keep an extra mag in there. Then, you can just go out and use it for self-defense, or use it as a range toy. This gives you pistol caliber carbine capability without having to do the paperwork of having a short-barreled pistol caliber carbine.”


“At this point, I gotta say, I am actually smitten by this quite a bit.”
