My uncle found 2 Hi-Point carbines at a garage sale last weekend for $35 a piece; they came with 1000 rounds of ammo for $10.

The one I sighted in and shot was precise and reliable.


Buy an inexpensive one, they're out there..

I decided on a marlin 1894 as my handgun caliber rifle... 357 mag is more fun to shoot then 9mm lol.. But I I was to find one really cheap like that then it would be on my shelf...

I finally shot my HiPoint 9mm carbine today after having it almost 2 months. I love it, it shot cheap ammo and good not one single problem.pretty darn accurate too. It does tend to sting the cheek after a while.

How about the sub 2000 as an option? They're nice and even fold in half.

I finally watched the whole video but nutnfancy it like an hour long. He no jamming issues. Not sure what video you watched. The only problem he had was with blazer aluminum rounds. And those were minimal. The kel tec sub 2000 it's beast for the price.

I owned a Hipoint 995ts until a few months ago. It was a great gun and I never had any problems. I only sold it to finance my Thureon Defense 9mm carbine. It uses a standard AR receiver and takes all Glock 9mm mags.

Default the original post was?...My $14.73 Hi-Point 995

the question was pro's and Con's of the Hi-Point 995 carbine?

Cons
its awkward,
has a proprietary mag
extra tiny trigger guard
mfg using automobile parts casting technique's

Pro's
HiPoints Unlimited lifetime warranty
Its cheap
Its reliable
Its contemptible reputation (won 2 bets off this little carbine) there are two Sks owners that wont soon scoff at the ugly black gun that out shot their scoped SKS's by a 14yro girl with open sights.

I'd Never of considerd buying a Hi Point, I'd seen them advertised for ages in gun mags, Ive even passed by them in gun shop rack's.
I'd heard them spoken ill of in forums.
I'd never handled any Hi-Point products till the winter of 2005, a fellow contracted to clean out rentals brought me one still in its box, it was in need of repairs (cleaner guy was on the Hi-Point nay sayers)So I had a Free "broken" Hi-Point 995 carbine still in its box minus both mags, I looked it over and saw that the previous owner must have just bought it (its condition was new looking) the story was he was shooting it till he ran out of ammo, couldent find any more in our Alaskan Arctic City of 3200, he aquired some reloads, thats when it blew up the 995 'sorta' a ring of brass in the chamber and the extractor claw missing from the case head seperation.
I put that carbine in storage for a year and eventually brought it out as a winter fix it project,
I'd contacted the mfg about procuring a replacement barrel and extractor,
HP said send it in so Hi-Point could fix the problem.
I said I was not the original buyer,
they said the gun itself had a unlimited lifetime warranty for the life of the firearm and send it in to them for repairs,
I said I found it in the trash and was blown up from reloaded ammo,
The HP gal said No biggie they just did a warrenty on a gun from a house fire,
I waffled for a bit wondering what it was really going to cost me to get this thing fixed?
I boxed it up and sent it into Hi-Point for $14.73 in postage (snail mail)
28 days later I got back a the same firearm in like new condition,
Hi-Point pay'd the UPS shipping to NorthWest Alaska,
in the box was all the stuff a new gun comes with, scope mount, sling and swivels, 2 mags,
I'd messed with it some and even shot it a little.
Then my teenage daughter latched onto it and its been her pride and joy since.
Dad has since sprung for a ATI stock for it and now its more winter friendly to shoot
.(coldest temps shot was -26F)
Now whenever we go some place thats my daughters go-to gun when we travel.
