9mm carbine
 
Looking for a reliable 9mm carbine does anyone have experience with one?

I've shot my buddys 9mm highpoint a bunch and that's pretty fun, its a little on the heavy side but there's not much felt recoil. There pretty cheap too and from what I hear highppoint has some of the greatest customer service around.

I'm gonna agree. My buddy has a high point carbine and its awesome. Always goes boom. If something does decide to break or not function all you gotta do is call and they'll fix it no questions asked.

I had a Kel Tec. It was pretty ugly, but it is super light, reasonably accurate and it fed any brass cased ammo I put in it, even some under powered handloads that wouldn't cycle in my pistols. The one I had uses the same mags as my Glock pistol.

Sights are rough, the trigger is spongy, but it was really a fun gun and very portable, for taking camping.

I have a Sterling. It's 100 percent and very ergo.

The Beretta and Ruger are also excellent.

Personally, I would avoid Hi-Point, Kel-Tek and the old Marlin "camp carbine." Just my $.02

I'll throw in another vote for the Hi-Point.


It has never failed to fire.

FWIW, the people I know with Hi Points seem happy with them.

I have a Beretta CX4 in .45. It's excellent. If the 9mm version is even close, it's worth a look.

Thanks for the feed back guys,surely appreciate it I'm going toward the cx4 on 9mm so far I just need a little more info.thanks again.

I've owned a Hi-Point carbine in 9mm for about 13 years. Thousands of rounds and never one issue, I replaced the stock about 3 years ago with some aftermarket piece, ATI maybe, don't remember. I paid about 250 for it bought a few extra mags and it's been a pleasure for years.

I put a tasco red-dot on it and I'm still using the same battery. It's a great Combo.

Buy one and never look back! American made and reliable as can be.
