Default Red Dot Sight For High Point Model 995

I recently bought a High Point Model 995 Carbine! I LOVE IT! Its a GREAT little gun. I want to upgrade to a "red dot" sight, but i don't know what to go with. I would like to stay under 150 bucks, but what is the best one to go with for this gun? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

I decided to not even pay attention to that one, Cane. I even own a High-Point pistol in .45 and the .40 carbine. The only Smithy I have is an old Model 10 in .38 special.

Once I read that one, I shook my head and ran away...

I bought a cheap BSA ($22) red dot for my HiPoint.40 Carbine. It looks exactly like that Walther red dot. The damn thing shoots 2" groups at 50 yds with the peeps, so I decided not to fu^k with it. To install the sight rail on that gun you need to remove the rear sight - now if your battery dies you're screwed!

I put a cheap red dot on my Hi-Point 9mm Carbine, and the Girl freind loves it. She can shoot the center out of a target at 50yds no problem. She keeps telling me that's is her gun now.

I just got a 995TS Carbine (9mm). You can remove the iron sights and

put a reflex sight on with a couple Allen wrenches and no mods.

They are a perfect match, IMO.

I'd go with a less expensive sight, otherwise it would go against the

whole grain of overall cost, but there are many to choose from, and

pretty much any of them will get the job done, considering the range

of the unit.
