Firearm Forum Question: Disassembly, Reassembly, and Testing the Hi Point Semi Auto Carbine Rifle

Ask A Firearms Question:
Saw the Post on the Kel Tec Sub-2000 Semi Auto Carbine Rifle, can you do a post topic on the Hi-Point 45 ACP Carbine ?
Thank you Bull Whip Eddy.

Hi-Point Model 995, 9mm Outfitted (This was my personal weapon)
As shown, I purchased it used for $285.00
Hi-Point Model 4595TS ....

Answer:
Blog Administrator -
The Hi-Point Carbine Rifle is offered in Center Fire Calibers of 9mm, 40 S&W, and 45 ACP.
I personally prefer the 45 ACP for stopping power. The 9mm is less expensive to shoot because of the ammo cost. I have owned the Model 995 fully outfitted (9mm, Older Version, shown above), and never had any complaints, very accurate and reliable.
Hi-Point offers a 100 percent Life Time Warranty Guarantee.
Upside of owning a Hi-Point -
They cost less than their nearest competitor the Kel Tec Sub-2000. They come in 45 ACP a real plus in my opinion.
Downside -
Both the older version and newer versions are difficult to Disassemble and Reassemble.
The newer version comes with a handy tool to assist the owner but the breakdown and cleaning is still awkward and cumbersome.
Personally I would recommend buying one of these used fully outfitted, the warranty is fully transferable and you will save a lot of money.
I have included many Youtube Videos about the Hi-Point Carbine Rifle below.

  3. I have one of these, picked it up about 3 months ago, good all around weapon.

    Remember, all a man needs is lots of ammo, a good dog, an ATV, a horse, and an occasional bed warmer companion.

  9. I myself still have one of these in the 9mm. They are real fun to shoot, almost no recoil, safe and accurate.

  10. I own one of these in 9mm, they are a real hoot to shoot.

    Joke - The Lone Ranger only wore a mask because of what him and Tonto did around the campfire.

  11. I had one of these older versions in 9mm it ran its course of novelty but damn it was fun to shoot.

  12. This post has convinced me, I shall endeavor to obtain one of these.

  13. Reminds me to get my 9mm out and go to the range.

  19. These are incredibly fun to shoot.

  20. Like many I own one and sold it, but they are really la lot of fun to shoot. I do agree with you Mr. Firearms Guy that the 45 acp is a better route. I had the older 9mm.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I passed on these because they require there own magazine if I remember.
    I may reconsider my consideration.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Know several people that have these, all 9mm, never heard of any issues or problems.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Have fired one of these in 9mm, quite a lot of fun, but I wouldn't own one. I am dedicated AK47, 762x39 user.

    ReplyDelete
  24. i have never owned one and always had mixed reactions to hi-point products

    ReplyDelete
  25. As mentioned, my brother-in-law buys every damn thing and yes he has one of these. I shot it, a lot of fun.
