    We beat this dead horse on the old forum but I would still love to see a carbine in .22 LR. Throw in a matching pistol and I would be one happy camper.

    I think there are way to many other notably good and cheap 22 rifles and pistols on the market to even attemp to compete for market share.

    True, there are a lot of manufactures out there making 22 LR but one that is made by the great folks at Hi-point and looks like my 995. I all over that!!!
     
  4. If Beemiller would make a .22lr HiPoint product I would be the first to jump on it, but like Thay said the .22 market is already full of inexpensive plinker rifles and handguns, so I dont see Beemiller entering this market anytime soon.
     
  5. I'd like one made by Hi-Point as well, but I don't think it's in the cards really.

    Its still nice to dream! :D
     
  7. I think it would be too much competition for Hi-Point to try and come out with a 22 LR version. I was at Dick's Sporting goods a little while back and they had the Mossberg Plinkster 22 Auto carbine with black synthetic stock for $99. The Mossberg "kinda" looks like a Hi-Point. ;)

  8. Amen to that bourbon! I've been killing squirrels for almost 30 years with the same marlin 60. I'd jump on a set of hi point .22's real quick. Are you listening guys?!?
