I think they look pretty good too. I wouldn't mind having a 9mm carbine for just $275, who wouldn't?

$275?

You need to shop around. I got mine from cabelas for $250 and it came with the front vertical grip.

Default Hi Point Vs Marlin

Now to add spice to the mix! This week Hi Point will begin shipping their newest carbine in that family line - and for the first time ever, it is a .45 ACP caliber weapon! And suggested retail is about $325!!!!!

Hey, it is inexpensive, it WORKS and now it is .45!

So, until Glock makes a pistol caliber carbine, I guess I'll add a Hi Point .45 carbine to the 9 mm I already own!

Sorry, thought it was new news! Ummm - I guess I have an old computer....? Not a great excuse, but better than the "dog ate my homework"!

Don't feel too bad, the news officially broke on the Hi Point forums, I don't think anyone on any other forums knew till 2 or 3 weeks later.

I really wish somebody would start making some drums for the HP carbines.

you'll never see a HP drum. but Promag makes 15 round stick mags for the 995, and apparently HP has some hi cap mags in the works in their R&D department...

Well, i like them, but a pistol caliber carbine should hold as many rounds as a comparable pistol, IMO. My XD45 holds 13+1; my buddy's XD9 holds 17 or so.

Why never a HP drum?

people have been trying to mod drum mags to fit hp's for a long time now, but it never works out. Because the mag needs to "float" in the mag well to function properly, and the weight of a drum will not allow the necessary "foating" that stick mags allow for.
