Default Hi-Point 9mm Carbine

Does anyone have any insight on these rifles? I don't really have much use for one, but I enjoy using tactical style rifles on the range. All ready have an M-4, just looking for some variety.

I have a Hi-point pistol that is pretty crappy. It works well for my wife once a year on the range, but that's about all it is good for.

Default Bushmaster Carbon 15 in 9mm

I have a Bushmaster 9mm Carbon 15 rifle that I enjoy shooting. Reasonable accuracy out to 50 yards and all AR goodies fit it. Mine has the quad rail, verticle grip, Aimpoint, and light. The longer barrel (16") really helps the 9mm's punch, and it is reasonably cheap to shoot.

I've often wondered about those. I'm interested in a cheap carbine tht I can keep in the back of the car(s), but of course they have to actually work when you press the trigger.

Default Bushmaster 9mm

My Bushmaster has only failed me with one brand of ammo. China Sports, I don't remember if it's one word or two, but it was trash. My Sig and the Bushmaster refused to fully chamber the China junk. A Beretta and a 9mm 1911 ran smooth with it though.
I checked the dimensions and they were all in spec, but like I said, it didn't work. There was also an issue of over pressure. The primers didn't set back on firing, but they did flatten out against the bolt face (there was no impact mark from the firing pin in the primer).

they are a cheap semi-auto and cheap to shoot if you get the 9mm model, but they are nothing I would trust to save my life.

The pistols evidently can be a crap shoot, but you hardly ever see a negative comment about the carbines, especially the 9mm version. There is a High Point forum and the folks there seem to be pretty honest about their guns.
