So is the ejection port/charging handle on the left side?

I also have one. I can't say the irons impressed me at all. The gun is nice, after I ripped off the irons. No matter what I did it would shoot 6-12" low,even at 15 meters. I'm not new to sighting in, did plenty o that in the Corps, but I think mine were jacked out of the box. The rear sight was just sloppy. I was thinking trying to find some irons but would have to play with risers to get it to the same plane. I also putt on a Brass Stacker comp on it. It was for my old lady originally, but she shot it twice and it sat in the safe, so I took it over. I would like to try to find some larger capacity mags. I've heard of people modifying 1911 mags, but it would be nice if Hi Point would make a hi-cap

Great gun!! I wish there was one in 10mm.
They do, it's called a 40 S&W (.10 mm bullet)

Hi-Point 4095TS (40 S&W) Charging handle on the left, ejection port on the right.

I am actually pretty interested in the Hi-Point Carbine, just one question, is it as hard to take apart and clean as the pistols?

You get a lot of gun for the money, plastic soaks up

the recoil, great stock.

The American company, based in Ohio, gives the best

warranty in the business.

But the thing I really got a kick out of is the "bolt"

is actually a bolt, which you could replace at any

hardware store.


Dis-assembly takes a little getting used to, but is not

difficult.

A LOT of fun at the range. The kind of gun where you

shot up 5 boxes of ammo before you know it.

Ive had a 9mm Hi-Point carbine for a few years with a cheap BSA red dot scope on it and I have had lots of fun shooting it. Never had any trouble out of it.

I like the way the Taurus looks. Might have to trade up, especially if higher mag capacity is available with the Taurus.

I have the Hi-Point 955 Classic that had the monkey stock but converted it to the tactical stock and I love it.Awesome gun and works great!As far as larger magazines go,only ProMag makes them and they are a hit or miss thing.My 15 rd Pro Mags work ok sometimes a FTF here and there.Best to stick with the factory 10 round magazines for reliability.Hi-Point has said they were working on larger capacity magazines but that was before Sandy Hook.
