    Got to try the gun out the other day. Gotta say I was surprised. For a cheap gun it seemed to be pretty well built.
    It came with a cheap red dot sight that needed a bit of adjustment, but once it was sighted in it co-witnessed well. The iron sights were dead on out of the box and I was impressed with the accuracy. I was shooting pieces of clays at 25 yards with no problem. The gun ran like a champ.
    The only minor issue I had was the charging handle coming loose. Slap a drop of thread lock on it and problem solved.
    Definitely a fun gun and hard to beat at around $300.

    I used to have one in 9mm. Great gun!! I wish there was one in 10mm.

    Nice. Sounds like fun. I've thought about getting a pistol caliber carbine. Would prolly go 9mm for compatibility of ammo.

    Well it's not as ugly as I had imagined. $300 is hard to beat.

    Now you're talking.
    It'd be a great companion to my glock.

    I also wanted a hi point, but in 9 not 45. I waited too long though and now the new republic of York has made everything fun really hard to get ;)

    So is the ejection port/charging handle on the left side?

    I also have one. I can't say the irons impressed me at all. The gun is nice, after I ripped off the irons. No matter what I did it would shoot 6-12" low,even at 15 meters. I'm not new to sighting in, did plenty o that in the Corps, but I think mine were jacked out of the box. The rear sight was just sloppy. I was thinking trying to find some irons but would have to play with risers to get it to the same plane. I also putt on a Brass Stacker comp on it. It was for my old lady originally, but she shot it twice and it sat in the safe, so I took it over. I would like to try to find some larger capacity mags. I've heard of people modifying 1911 mags, but it would be nice if Hi Point would make a hi-cap

    They do, it's called a 40 S&W (.10 mm bullet)

    Jim

    Hi-Point 4095TS (40 S&W) Charging handle on the left, ejection port on the right.

    I am actually pretty interested in the Hi-Point Carbine, just one question, is it as hard to take apart and clean as the pistols?

    You get a lot of gun for the money, plastic soaks up

    the recoil, great stock.

    The American company, based in Ohio, gives the best

    warranty in the business.

    But the thing I really got a kick out of is the "bolt"

    is actually a bolt, which you could replace at any

    hardware store.


    Dis-assembly takes a little getting used to, but is not

    difficult.

    A LOT of fun at the range. The kind of gun where you

    shot up 5 boxes of ammo before you know it.

    Ive had a 9mm Hi-Point carbine for a few years with a cheap BSA red dot scope on it and I have had lots of fun shooting it. Never had any trouble out of it.

    I like the way the Taurus looks. Might have to trade up, especially if higher mag capacity is available with the Taurus.

    I have the Hi-Point 955 Classic that had the monkey stock but converted it to the tactical stock and I love it.Awesome gun and works great!As far as larger magazines go,only ProMag makes them and they are a hit or miss thing.My 15 rd Pro Mags work ok sometimes a FTF here and there.Best to stick with the factory 10 round magazines for reliability.Hi-Point has said they were working on larger capacity magazines but that was before Sandy Hook.
