Default hi point 995 9mm carbine

Today I stopped by the gun shop too browse around and found a cool but funky looking gun its a 9mm carbine and was for sale at only 300$ I handled it and it felt pretty solid. I don't own a 9mm carbine but would love to have one! Has anyone bought this rifle? If so post some pics tell me about it is it worth it? Or is there a better 9mm carbine for around the same price? Friend of mine already ownes a kel tec sub 2000 and I'm a little jealous I want my own 9 mil carbine (:

I have a Hi-Point 995 and I like it. I haven't shot it past 50 yds, using iron sights, but it is quite accurate so far. It's eaten everything I've fed it with only 1 stovepipe. It will never win a beauty contest but it is fun to shoot.

I don't know much about the Hi Point. I've a Sub 2k. What I know about it NOW, is you need to shoot brass with it. Steel gets stuck.

I had one and it would feed any ammo I tried, but I wasn't very accurate with it. I'd say it was me and not the gun, I've heard pretty good stuff about them.

I had one for a while, it was fun to play with and always worked. I didn't like the 10 round mag and its really not a quality built carbine. I bought mine NIB for $225 proly 5 years ago in Austin. Sold it for $185 2 years ago, should have asked more for it! now that I see what they sell for new.
I found that its cool for plinking, but other than that it served no good purpose for me.

I'd go for the 40 Cal sub 2000 if I had the choice. Either way it is still just a toy.

better judged by twelve than carried by six.

I think its a good fun gun. If you look around you can find 15 round mags. Theres a clip hi point has that holds 2 10 round mags in the stock and there foward grip has another ond of the multi tools in the bottem of it.

My 995 is the old stock style camo colored with a BSA red dot sight. Its a reliable and accurate carbine that's a lot of fun to shoot. I paid around $225 for mine and it came with 3 mags and a buttstock mag pouch that holds 2 10rd magazines. Been about 4yrs or so back so I think $300 isn't a bad price for today.
