It doesnt suprise me that you have had dozens come in for repairs I would bet that of the ones that shop I worked at in college sold 10-20% got returned for repairs or traded back in with in 1-3 months.

Our 995 been around 5 years, has never failed and has been a reliable weapon we take it on all our outings its probibly been carried more that its been fired, still it has held up well considering its construction the little carbine has coverd allotta hard miles by boat and snowmobile.

I have nothing but good to say about the cheep little carbine. The damn thing works every time I use it. I would trust it to protect me, even though I have better (MORE EXPENSIVE) guns to choose from. My only complaint is that is does not come in a 45, and the magazine capacity is not enough.
Blowback design is not a issue, it only adds a little more weight, its not a design problem that most people are concerned with.
I have one stashed in the house cocked and locked and ready to rock.

Only thing I don't like about the 995 is that they only have 10-round mags.

Dang near a waste of time. The whole reason to HAVE a pistol-caliber carbine is higher capacity combined with ease of carry & better accuracy than a pistol.

That why I sold my 995 and switched over to Calico. I'd rather have 100 rounds of compact fun per magazine

i bought one of these neat,UGLY little boogers about 7years ago...149.95+tax..

it worked pretty good right out of the box...sights where a little crude & the crappy low cap.mag made you reload more then we got to shoot it...

to this day the little mofo has only been cleaned once and has had over 5krds put through it sense its last cleaning...i cant believe these little hunks of sh*t are going for double the price i paid for them now????not worth that price...in my book anyways...i'd say if your looking into buying one of these net little,UGLY mofo's...just take a look @the ruger PC carbine 9mm or the .40...if you got the extra few hunderd bucks...resale value is why i say this...i like the little hipoint carbine...but i do kick myself in the ass for not buying that ruger m44/carbine from the pawnshop a few weeks back...275.00bucks...it was like new....damn i gotta go on that one....stay safe..keep at it!

Yeah, I think I'll shoot the hell out of it and if it breaks, I'll get it fixed or replaced for free forever. Can't really beat that can ya?

I have the 4095 Carbine and I love it. It shoots 2" groups at 50 yds. all day long with no jams. I bought it new in 2004 and have had zero problems, with the exception of a problem I caused by forgetting to drop a powder charge in a case. While doing rapid fire drills, the squib load jammed in the barrel and the two subsequent rounds pushed it to the end of the barrel. With three 200gr. Hornady XTP's jammed in the barrel, the barrel neither swelled nor burst. I embarrasingly called and explained what happened to HIPoint (Beemiller Inc.) and they suggested I return it to them with a note and pre-paid postage. I sent the gun back but forgot to include the pre-paid postage. One week later I called them up to give them my credit card for return postage and the guy on the phone said they shipped back already! That day I received my rifle from UPS at HiPoints' expense. It had been rebarrelled, they gave me a new stock (?), new sling, scope mount, extra mag, and enclosed a note saying they "Buffed" the trigger too. Try getting that level of customer service from Ruger, Marlin, or any other firearms manufacturer! I've found that most people that complain about HiPoint have never owned one. I would not buy one of their pistols for a "carry piece", but I would buy another one of their carbines any day.

Have you seen the new stock version coming out soon? Much better looking than the old stock.

Also, a .45 ACP model will be hitting the shelves soon, from what I've heard.

Can anybody confirm that???
