    I just got a 995 back from hi point, that I bought on gun broker a while back....

    Of the 34 items there were 7 that were acceptable to the smith.

    The PO must have beat it like some sort of Irish child from another mother. I was hoping for a ts stock too, but they must still have a few monkey stocks around. No free mags though...

    I also got a warning to not use aftermarket stocks or mags. It was bold, underlined, and highlighted... I guess he thought there was a chance that's happened in the past. I'm looking forward to some range time soon

    The NO MAGAZINE is surprising to me?
    The BOLD print is on all their paperwork.
    I love the Classic stock, MoM won't do the TS Stock for FREE.

    Have FUN with your gun!!!

    At least it came back with my mags. I did get a sling and a new stock for free so I can't complain.
    I did get a laugh out of the notes on the work order, they had to ream the chamber, Repin the barrel, and adjust the frame

    It's been rumored that use of Promag magazines and ATI stocks leave very distinctive damage to classic 995s. I'd say he knows if that's happened in the past.

    I was mistaken. On further examination there was a mag in the rifle as well.
    With 3x marks on the bottom... I wonder why

    I kinda dig the look now. The receiver cover is all scratched and chipped along with the barrel shroud, but the stock still has release agent on it its so fresh
    Its cool they give you a sling and an adjustment tool and all the manuals to go with it, its like buying a new rifle all over, but for only $20 in shipping

    I guess even if I buy the ts stock I'm still under two bills with this thing.

    If I was a betting man I'd put all my money on "they still have the molds".

    You can send the receiver shroud back to MoM for a complete re-paint or pay $25 for a new one. I have bought several new ones myself. I'm surprised they didn't re-paint that for you?

    It works, if I get a new ts stock, I will think about maybe painting them both

    All the TS stock does is make them look more dastardly. IMO the monkey stock shoots better.

    Didn't HP tell Talon at one time that they weren't replacing the classic stock anymore?
    I'd ask him but I think he was sent to the reformatory.

    I don't think they are fazing out the Classic stock?
    I sent in a Classic Camo 995 last year & MoM replaced it with a black Classic stock saying they were out of stock on the Camo's at this time.
