Default hi point

Anyone out there have any real life experience with the high point rifles? Cabelas has them cheap enough down here where I'm at. Thinking about getting one in a 40sw. Anyone have anything to take, good or bad before I drop 349 on the rifle?

My buddy had obe in 9mm. It's a descent enough gun. It felt a little awkward in my hands at first, but after a couple of mags it was fun. I'd get one.

Ifs a fun rifle. I bought it for my old lady to shoot. She don't shoot much so now it's mine. It's a fun rifle, shoots like a .22 even though it's a .45. I have put 1K rounds through It and never had issues.

Check out the warranty. It's as good as Craftsman's.

Mister McCool...wow! That is the deciding factor right there! I had no idea their warranties were that good. If the gun is half as good as the warranty, I don't see how you could go wrong. Thank you for enlightening me on that. Your post set it in stone, I will be getting a hi-point 40 carbine tomorrow. Thanks again everyone.

Ive had a Hi Point 4595 TS for a couple uears, and it will shoot anything I give it.
Shoots pretty accurate also. Fun gun to shoot.

Hi point says clean the bore ,wipe it down , do not dissassemble, send it to them. They may just replace it. Best warranty out there.

My Planet Of the Apes Rifle.....gotta luv it.

These are pretty good guns. I have actually completely broke it down, that's a process! I broke it down after about 700 rounds and realized I may never have to do it again. I do believe that you should just wipe it down and punch the bore.

I'm so-so on their pistols BUT their carbines are excellent. I've owned both. Good feel, very accurate, minimal recoil and very reliable.

Yeah but they'll probably be around longer than Sears.
Havnt had a carbine but I wouldn't hesitate.
I had a .45 pistol and loved it. I'd buy another in a second.
Folks whine about them but I think it's mostly people who haven't actually owned them.
BTW, the only reason I sold my .45 was someone offered me what I paid New. $175. Pretty hard to beat that for an absolutely reliable gun. Eventually I'll pick up another.

The Sears near me closed and they opened a little mail order shop down the road a piece.
