Default 9mm carbine

I'm looking at picking up a Hi-Point 995TS. I like the idea of a rifle in 9mm to match my favorite carry handgun and I do like the 9mm round. Everything I have read about them is good. I know some folks look down at Hi-Point but it's hard to argue with some of the reviews along with all American made and a life time warranty for under $300. Anything else in that price range to match or beat it?

In that price range? Probably not.

Now, if you wanted to double the price range...

One rule that I've learned over the years is; "You get what you pay for." Now, that is not to say that once in a great while rules are broken. If you want to get a Hi-Point, then go get it and enjoy it. If it works, then you will be satisfied. Either way, works or not, it will be a learning experience. For under $300 you might catch a bargain and I hope you do. If not, then you're not out much. Of interest is the story a few weeks back about the woman in Detroit who met home invaders with a hail of gunfire from a Hi-Point. Pictures of the Hi-Point showed a rusted, beat-up looking firearm...but it worked and that's the name of the game. If it's functionally reliable - it's good to go, no matter the price! Let us know the results of your acquisition!

Nothing.

The Hi Point carbines and the more expensive ones like the Beretta CX4 share the same type blowback action and feel. Unlike their respective handguns.

I have had a 995 for many years and love it. Everyone that shoots mine wants one when they are done. I did the stock conversion on mine way back and have not regretted it. Mine eats cast bullets w no problem. I finally got a wild hair and used it rabbit hunting this last year ( head shots only) and with the cast bullets it was always lights out! Not a bad sub for 22lr for me right now I cast and load my own stuff so worked out great!

I like mine. The bolt handle is actually a bolt, like

you buy at a hardware store. There is a lot of form following function,

and well constructed, non-pretentious simplicity.

You get a lot for the money.

Rails, iron sights, sling, maintenance tool, and it's US made,

in Ohio. The composite stock is spring loaded for additional

recoil reduction.

Also one of the best warranties, return service, and warranty

departments in the industry.
