I haven't had any problems with my 995. Shoots great and I don't mind the looks. A friend had a firing pin problem with his and HiPoint is sending him a complete fire control group to install free of charge. Top notch service. I looked at the Beretta but didn't want to spend the extra money they wanted for something that was going to be for fun anyway. If I hadn't found the 995 for the price it was at I wouldn't own a 9mm carbine. I ordered extra 10 round mags from sportsman's guide and they must have been made for the older model. The cutout on the top of the mag was different. A little dremel time fixed that.

I like that stock. Depending on how difficult it would be to route the inside of a wood stock to fit the reciever (it looked complicated), I may just go with the ATI stock. Thanks JTJ

I have a Just Right Carbine in 9MM. Kind of pricey, but to me it was worth it.
(Actually, my wife paid for half and the other half came from the sale of a shot gun. ) Shoots great, no malfunctions. www.jrcarbines.com

This is a pic right out of the box (bipod not included):


And after some accessories:

Very nice. How much if you don't mind me asking?

Edit- how much out the box, no accessories?

I paid $659 not including taxes and fees. It came with one 10 round mag and bought a 33 round mag too.

I added a grip/bipod, flashlight, riser, Magpul sights, and a cheap red dot all from Amazon.

I squeezed off the shots in that target in about 1 minute, 40 rounds using the Magpul sights.

Being 9mm, it is light on recoil and cheap to shoot. I have a Ruger P95 so I only need to bring one caliber of ammo to the range.

I got the hi point because it was different looking. I think there are to many ar looking guns out there. It's like the other manufactures are afraid to do there own thing.

I picked up a Hi Point 9MM carbine today. Local dealer had it in stock for a great price. I can't wait to get it to the range and see what it can do.

Got a 995TS last week.

Comes with sling, sighting, and accessory

rails. Shoots well, disassembles quickly for

easy cleaning, and the synthetic stock

soaks up a lot of recoil. If you don't

care for the iron sights, they are easily

removed, and a scope mount is already in

place...
