I've been wondering about this since I obtained my TS.

I've seen comparisons of the Kel-Tec S2K with the 995TS on this forum - "S2K folds, takes GLOCK or other major pistol mags, but stock is too short and needs additional add-ons for picatinny applications, costs roughly $100 more than the TS" etc.

Now with the TS's debut what logical reason would one come up with to buy a Storm over a TS? The Storm costs 3 times as much, does allow the use of your Beretta mags, but what else?

Personally, I hate the Storm/ATI stock. It just doesn't do it for me. The TS stock is supremely better in so many ways. And if I'm going to pay $800 for a 9mm carbine, I'd go with an AR conversion over a Storm.

Anyone think the new TS will cut into the Storm's market niche?

I agree with your comparison. I don't particularly care for the storm stock and if I was going to pay that much, I'd go ahead and by an ak-47 or a saiga of some sort. I definitely think the new TS is going to cut into the market. I've been a long time hi point fan. When I picked up my TS, I was talking with the owner and he said a lot of people were interested in it that would have never considered a Hi Point. I really think Hi Point is going to pick up a lot more business with this new TS.

The best reason I have to own a CX4 is: The 4595 will NEVER exist. I gave up and got a CX4, then sent it off to gripreductions.com and had the bow removed.

I can't see why you would want a 9mm CX4 over the TS995.

I find your lack of faith in the 4595 disturbing.

Had a 995, and really liked it, but sold it to get a CX4 for two main reasons:

1- Factory, reliable 20 round mags in 9mm.

2- Easily configured to eject to the left. I shoot lefty and the 995 consistently sprayed burnt powder residue in my face.

I do wish Beretta did better in the warranty and customer service. It can be hard, I'm told, to get parts as they are often on back order. Their warranty is one year. Hi-Point has them totally beat in this area. And of course, you could own three 995s for the price of one CX4.

I owned my 995 before I ever saw a CX4. The first time I saw the Beretta, it happened to be a .45 ACP version and was "on sale" for $749. I almost bought it, since I too have given up on the 4595 and I was at a gun shop very far from home. On the way home, I saw a 4095 and grabbed it.

Since then, the only CX4s I've seen have been 9mm and at least $849.

I did read a comparison between the 4095 and CX4 a while back. The conclusion was that the Hi-Point was more comfortable to shoot, had better sights, was more accurate, had a far better warranty and cost one third the price of the Storm.

Forgetting about caliber, the only thing that attracts me to the CX4 is the fact that it takes down like a military weapon; turn a take down lever, break it in half, take the guts out, reverse. I'm always reluctant to trust weapons I can't take down in a minute. The Hi-Points aren't very difficult to take apart but it's not something I would want to do in a rush, in the dark or without tools.

That's my two cents! ^-^

PS. Never regretted buying that 4095. Haven't seen one on a gun rack since.

Not the first time I've been called disturbed.

I have a CX4 and am in the market for a 995TS (or 4595) as well. I like the increased capacity, refinement and easier take down of the CX4. I keep the CX4 in the house, I would like to get a Hi Point to throw in the back of my truck. I figure they are both about the same size, reload the same way, operate more or less the same, so if I practice on one, I will still be familiar with the other.

I just like pistol caliber carbines, cheap to shoot, fun and just seem more ergonomic to me. I love the compactness of them.

That would be my only reason. The hi-cap mags form the 92fs will work in the cx4. The promag 32 round has pretty good reviews also. Imagine 32 rounds on a TS? Really the only thing I would change on the 995 is higher capacity mags. Im sure Im not the only one..
