I can't believe I bought a Hi-Point carbine
This is a discussion on I can't believe I bought a Hi-Point carbine within the Rifles forums, part of the Rifle & Shotgun Forum category; Even Hickok 45 seems to like the carbines...the hand guns (like my C9) not so much. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jt4Le2SR0dQ...

I've had my 995 for about a year now and I love it. I bought it to replace a Wilkinson Linda carbine that I sold many years ago and regretted it everyday since. 9mm carbines are fun and my High Point is like every other- it shoots very accurately and the reliability is amazing considering the modest price. I might even buy another!!

My LGS swears by these Hi Points because of their price points and fun factor. Maybe one day I'll pick up a 45acp version for the truck.

Well, it's nice to see my old thread resurrected. It's been a little over a year and I still like the carbine. I did have one issue with FTF that seems to be a common concern for these carbines. I fixed it by polishing the feed ramp and "tuning" the mags. It works fine now.
Since I last posted, I've done a few things to improve the overall quality of the carbine, plus some mall ninja accessorizing. First thing I did was to replace the plastic weaver rails with aluminum picatinny rails. It will now hold any accessory. I changed the trigger to an aluminum replacement and added a light and 3x prism sight, compensator, fore end handle and mag holders. It's an ugly gun, so I decided to double down on ugly. Here's a pic:

I have a friend that just purchased the 9mm version, I was surprised. I have never been a highpoint fan, however I like the feel of his. He removed the excess rails, added a primary arms rgb II mini red dot, and a magpul afg. It seems to be a very fun little carbine, wish they made high caps for it, good ones might I add. Myself, I would like a beretta cx4, another similiar design that I find interesting. The high point carbine has a BIG following though, I can see why.

I loved my 9m version always got cheek slap when firing, solved that by placing a small piece of 1/2" foam pipe insulation held with black tiewraps over the stock where your cheek makes contact . Problem solved. Regret selling it. Now Im considering the 45acp carbine version.

Nice setup, Hokieman. Bought a 995 last year in digital desert camo, put on an inexpensive red dot sight and a forward grip. Would like to put on a compensator like yours but it's not allowed here in The People's Republic. Always interested in the durability of Hi-points....let us know how it works out.

I have the 45 carbine.
Fun to shoot.
Eats any ammo I feed it.
Cleaning is not an issue (manual says every 2,000 rounds).
Accurate out to 200 yards.
Very easy to trick out and modify.
If you run out of ammo you can use it as a club.
A pain to break down and clean (no really, it's a real pain).
A mushy trigger that no one likes.
Low capacity magazines.
Will never win a prize for its looks.
All things considered it's a keeper. I bought it for $300 a few years back and would not sell it for $1,000 today (seriously, I wouldn't). Now if you offer more than that, it's yours.

Bullpup stock looks great. Are they available yet? Do they fit the old models?
I've got the old model 995 (the real ugly one) it shoots all day long. No FTF or FTE.
Paid $175 five yrs ago & it came with 5 magazines (one of them a 15 rnd that works fine)
It has the original iron sights & I added a butt stock cushion pad so my wife & daughter can have fun shooting it too.
I still like my mini 14's & mini 30's but this thing is inexpensive to shoot & hangs in there

pistol caliber carbines are plain fun to shoot!
I hear people often ask "why would you want a pistol caliber carbine?" .
because they are plain fun to shoot. and they use the same ammo as your pistol and some use the same magazines, they recoil less, so you can let your wife/girlfriend/mother/kids shoot it and they wont run away!
so to everyone that owns one...I say enjoy yourselves
