I will be running some test on the 9mm carbine with red dot today......

Back when I was a deputy, we actually had one of these on patrol in our vehicle because the county was dirt poor and would not purchase a better 9mm MP5 for close quarter engagements on serving warrents. It worked flawlessly at the range and our only complaint was the standard 10 round magazines. But 9mm anything out of a 16.5" barrel is no sloutch round and will penetrate most vehicles front to back or door to door.

Now for the target that was shot at 50 yards after a bit of correction of the BSA Red Dot. You can see the upper bullet holes, and then I had zero'd it at 50 yards. The Hi Point 995 Carbine held a very nice group with Winchester 115-gr fmj value pack ammo. Just so you know, the target was on a down hill slope with no risk of hitting anything such as people or homes as there is a hill far off behind my target.



Here is another target that I shot after the first one, this time with 20 rounds at 50 yards. As a result of my brother in law seeing these targets, and then shooting my 995 he now is buying one tomorrow or Monday depending on if the shop is open or not on Sunday's.

Back when I was a deputy sheriff and we carried the 995, it was one of my favorite carbines to train with.

for a low-end plastic gun, they perform way beyond any pre-conceived expectations and are a real sleeper for folks on a tight budget..............

I understand it will take the same mag as their own 45 pistol.
They are having so many orders for the 9mm and 40cal that they have not been able to work the .45 into the production. Until they either expand the workforce from approx 200 employees or catch up to the current orders, the 4595 is on hold.
I think it would be a neat carbine to have too. Don't really like their pistols though, they work fine just one fugly piece of plactic.

Yesterday, my brother in law went to the same shop I did, and purchased a NIB 995 for $179.99 OTD with no extra's. I got mine used with a Simmons 3x9x40mm scope on it for $135.00 OTD My brother in law promptly swapped me out for a BSA Red Dot scope that he had and didn't like :lol:

Here is Joe shooting at a dinger target that we set up 100 yrds away.



Here is what mine looks like up close with the Red Dot on top, just like what the model in the picture above is sporting.


Now neither of us did bad in our purchases of our carbines, as I have found 2 places online that one (where I stole the picture from is charging $214.95 plus FFL fees and shipping, and another that has them priced at $229.95 plus FFL fees plus shipping.

I had figured to find something wrong with my 995 Carbine because it was used and only $135.00 for me but originally $149.99 on the price tag. I was trying to figure out why they worked me such a deal on this 995 Carbine, but as of yet with 200 rounds down range I can not find anything wrong with this firearm.

I like the red dot scope simply because when I am looking thru the lense, where ever that red dot is, is where the bullet is going. There are many configurations that guy's and gals are doing to their 995 and 4095's with the ATI stocks, flash hiders etc and even playing with Pro Mags 15 round magazine that still has yet to be perfected for flawless use. These Hi Points are the bastard child of the carbine world, and of course the other companies don't like it one bit either. The nice thing is that if anything from the slightest to if I ran it over with my SUV... Hi Point has a no questions ask warranty. One guy even had some issues and sent his in for repair. Hi Point sent back with the repair work 2 free 10 round magazines for his trouble.

But your absolutely right on the HP handguns, they are just flat out UGLY with big capital letters. I was given a HP JH45 and found that it is very heavy, but shoots to POA and functions flawlessly, but still is not one that I would carry concealed but makes a good house and range gun.

Here is a nice video done by a guy on Disassembly of the Hi-Point 995 Firearm

Man I hope they get going on the 45 acp version. That would be so sweet. I reload for it and would be able to shoot it a bit without breaking the bank.
