Hello, I am new member...& have a silly question...I'm new to Hipoints too...this subforum mentions .45acp carbines. But, the Hipoint site only mentions 9mm & .40 calibers...(also, 1 of the online firearms dealers whose site I use to reference prices/wares only shows the 9mm). Again, perhaps a silly question...does Hipoint currently manufacture a .45 carbine...I'm definitely interested in one.---Patrice

The 4595 will not be released for at least a month.
You can read all about it in the "Sticky" they have & do a search to find other posts with pictures of the new stock they are releasing.

No they don't. Hi Point makes the 995 and a 4095 currently. They have been tempting, promising, talking about the new 4595 for a few years with the latest being that the 45 carbine will be out shortly. Maybe in my life time I hope.

I spoke with the folks at Hi-Point earlier this week when I had my 9mm pistol in for repair. They tell me that they anticipate it to be available by August. They could not, however, give me an estimated price. My guess is that it will sell like hotcakes whatever the price, especially if the liberal gun-control idiots try to ban it.

The 45 acp being a lower velocity round, would it be as practical as a 9mm or a .40?

I must say, however, that I do like the idea of having a rifle and a pistol that use the same ammo!

At least as practical as my 45 XD which could knock down anything I care to shoot. If I am not mistaken the longer barrel of a carbine increases fps slightly so I see no reason for it not to be a great idea. If I bought a 45 carbine it would be more of a TSHTF weapon and have to be VERY reliable otherwise I stick with the AK, plinking would be out since 45 ACP aint cheap now days.

my tommy gun is a 45 carbine ,and i was putting holes all the way thru 10" thick trees at 50 feet , so i'd imagine the longer barrel does give it quite a bit more oomph . if i didn't already have a 45 carbine i'd be itching for the hi-point 45 to come out .

Which carbine you use? Im going to be in the market for a higher reliability carbine next fall if we don't get Obama-ed in the meantime. I've looked at the Storm you using one of those?

Now it's August?

In February, they were saying April.

I'm starting to have doubts.

Probably would be better for PR if they had just said "TBA" until they had product in boxes, with price tags, ready to ship. That way, folks don't feel let down every time there is a delay. Just my two cents, as a retail guy.

Great site. Ive always loved carbines for obvious reasons but there's always been a lack of models out there for some reason. My first carbine was the M-1 .30 cal and I loved the damn thing before it was "lost" during a move. Wish I had replaced it then cause I cant find one for a decent price now.

Well is anyone else here using a .45 carbine?

Talked to HP Wednesday, was told the new stock was coming in April, then 4595 a couple months later.

Volunteer Enterprises is no longer in business and the guns seem to sell for about 1500 give or take. Kar makes the tommy gun clone for about 1500-2000 depending on the configuration and magazines.

Talked to Beemiller's tech shop yesterday. He said June on the 4595's.
