    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!

    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...:eek:

    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.:eek:

    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.

    OP,
    The Primary Arms RDs from Primary Arms seem to get good reviews and are well within your range.
    FWIW
    YMMV

    I just mounted a 40 dollar Barska 30mm red dot scope on my 995 TS and after 3 adjustment rounds, I've gotten 1.5" groups at 40 yards.'Course, it took me 400 rounds to get there...damn palsy! I kid, big Hi-point fan. Love my carbine. Always goes "bang!" when you want it to. Just FYI, steel jacket WPA FMJ 9mm rounds feed, fire and cycle through my 995 like butter...
