That would be cool. It would open up a whole new market to hi point. Priced at $200 for the pistol & $300 for the carbine. 7-9 round clips. I Would buy 1

I wouldn't just because of the cost of ammo. :-( I'd love to have one though. Just wouldn't be able to shoot it but once or twice a year? :x

I already shoot .50 AE, so a 5095 would give me a pistol/carbine solution to a problem I didn't know I had..... :wink: :D :p

You can't have a .50 cal. in a Blowback design weapon without some SERIOUS recoil.

Limpwristing would become a real problem as your wrist would go limp after shooting it a few times :shock:

Like another member I have a Desert Eagle in 50 AE. I honestly don't shoot it very often due to the high cost of the ammo so no, I would not buy one. I hate to admit it but it's been about 2 years since I fired my DE.

Nope, cost of ammo. .45 is high enough for me.

THE CARBINE WITH A TRIPOD AND A SUPED UP RECOIL PAD... A REALLY NICE SCOPE. WITH IT BEING HI-POINT IT WOULD ALL BE AMERICAN MADE.

It would be entertaining to fire such a round out of a carbine but the cost and recoil would be excessive.

would be a decent bear defense gun though.

Hi-Point need to design a new carbine that operates from a gas-piston, they would have to lighten the slide/bolt on the carbine so it could be manipulated by the piston, it's really not a big modification to the existing design, rhis would make all sorts of caliber weapons feasible.

um yes it is. do you knwo the difference between pure blowback and gas operation? it would require a complete redisgn of the entire weapon. nothing would tranfer from one to the other. not ever going to happen

Blowback, cardridge pushes the slide back and is ejected, the recoil spring pushes the slide back into battery.

Gas-operated, cardridge is fired, some gas is redirected near the end of the barrel and travels up to the piston head pushing a piston rod, the piston rod pushes the bolt back (or HP's slide which is attached to this rod.

I think it's feasible, prove me wrong ;)

not for HP its not feasible. thats why gas op rifles cost 500+$ and a HP carbien is 200$. its about manufcture cost. sure HP could makea gas op carbine but not with thier current design.
