Default Same caliber weapons

Cost aside, practicality comes into view, same caliber weapons in a popular caliber is a plus, especially a NATO caliber so get what you can afford and practice.

I have the 45 acp version and they are fun little carbines. Kind of impractical for any use besides plinking in my opinion but we have had many afternoons of fun shooting it. I lucked out and got it for a really cheap deal new otherwise I prob wouldn't of bought it

Cheap is not always bad. And when it's good it's usually better than stuff that costs twice as much.

Well, I picked up a Hi-Point 995TS. First impression... I was surprised how well it is put together and how solid if feels. The sights arn't much but work well enough and I can say the same about the safety. Out of the box the sights were way off but never bought a gun when they weren't. A little tweaking and it was shredding a hole in the middle of the target at about 40 yards. The peep sight is good enough for someone that needs bifocals and I think any kind of optic on it would be a waste considering the guns limitations range wise. I think I found my new "plinker". I sure won't be afraid to scratch it or get it wet so it will make a great little "trail" gun. Wish it came with more then one magazine, but for the price, I can see why it didn't.

Got a 995 on fri and took it to the range on sat , got a couple of promags to go with it , thought it might offset the hard to get 22lr as I reload the 9mm , any way tried to shoot it in a steel plate shoot and it would do nothing but jam on hollow points , switched over to round noise ball reloads of mine and went through all 40 rounds as fast as I could sight and shoot , no misses either with the sights right out of the box , took them off though and have a red dot on now , might get back out this weekend

Mine came with a note in the box that said if I use Promag magazines it will damage the gun and void the warranty.

I had one for a while. It was a fun gun to shoot. Everyone that fired it loved it. They also have a great factory support behind them. I had the ProMags as well but didn't use them. They insert too far and the feed lips cause problems to the action. That's why Hi-Point says using them voids warranty. It's the same with the ATI stock replacement . If you use that then by God, don't tell Hi-Point that when your gun breaks. And don't send the gun in for repair with it attached. Put it back to stock. ATI made that Beretta-like stock without consulting with Hi-Point and they made it out of a too stiff plastic. The ugly factory stock was designed, on purpose, out of a soft plastic to absorb recoil. Running the ATI stock risks breaking the gun's internals. Hi-Point fixed thousands of guns because of ATI's design, on their dollar, and it got to where enough was enough. Same with ProMag mags. Use at your own risk.
