I had to look at my paper work to see how long ago I bought the model 995
9mm high point rifle. It was 11/28/03 when I bought and it has had thousands of rounds thru it.
my 2 sons grew up shooting it till the barrel was too hot to touch.
In all that time it was never a problem. It broke 1 firing pin about a year ago,
I called the company and they sent me a new pin and spring free of charge.
You cant beat service like that!
Its not pretty but its built like a tank and will shot whatever you feed it.

A Hi Point is like a sore -you know-you can't beat it.
Haters abound but it's a absolutely reliable, inexpensive weapon.
Hammer it, put a couple thousand down the pipe, drag it when your truck breaks fail, the company will make good, even if you're the fifth owner.
Not too many manufacturers of any product will make that claim.

Don't own one personally but I've shot my nephews gun. Personally, I think it's not particularly pretty, has very few options aside from what fits on the guns rails and it's a bit heavy for the size of the gun. OTOH, it was very affordable, tough as nails, has minimal recoil and goes bang every time you pull the trigger.

If they were horses, my M&P-15 would be a thoroughbred and the hi Point would be a mule. Some people want a racehorse while others need the mule. You decide which will fill the bill for you.

I probably only have 250 - 300 rounds through my 995TS, but it has yet to give me any challenges. It is a fun gun to shoot with almost no perceptible recoil.

I have 9mm carbines. They all work good. The most common issue with Hi Points is the magazine dragging the slide. That can be fixed in a jiffy with a mill bastard file. I don't know if I would buy one new. People sell used Hi Points cheap.

Gotta agree with Sgt_Skrb_25 on mag. capacity. BTW, don't bother with the Pro-Mag higher cap. option, they are a POS!

I've been looking at a pistol caliber carbine but a lot of them fall under what I consider "stupid expensive" considering what you get.

The Hi-Points generally get rave reviews. I've been looking for one for awhile but they are still pretty rare. The one thing I don't like, outside of the capacity issue, is that the standard stock is butt-ugly. However, there are some decent aftermarket stocks that are functional and much more aesthetically pleasing.

I don't even think ProMag makes them either. I would actually try them if they did.
