Hello from Missouri. Just joined and first post. While I’ve been a High Point owner for about 10 years, I’ve never had to use their customer service. I recently got another carbine and it has a junky scope and no iron sights. I called the factory and the lady supplied me with new sights and a slew of other things. When I asked how much, she said it’s covered under warranty. Wow. For weapon I bought used. Simply awesome customer service. That makes 3 High Points I own and will purchase more when I find them.

i bought my 995 back in the early '90s. it was somewhere around $180.00 from a shop than was not known for being inexpensive. it had one of those butt ugly stocks, and the receiver shroud is/was held in place with e-clips. i almost immediately took off the sights and bolted on a cheap BSA red dot.
the little carbine has been a real trooper. very accurate and one of my favorite range toys. i have never ever had an issue with quality ammo. any failure was do to bad ammo. much 'funner' to shoot than my very expensive AR which has loads of bells and whistles.
after many years, the butt ugly stock broke. i don't know why, i did not drop it or abuse it in any way. i knew hi-point would replace the stock, but i feared they would replace the butt ugly stock with another butt ugly stock. so i ordered one of the super cool tactile stocks with the springy butt. it only cost $40.00 [then], with free shipping!, no less. i was/am as happy as a clam at high tide.
i admit, i am not a real fan of the takedown procedure for cleaning. those e-clips are a PITA, putting it mildly.
i am proud to own it and seldom pass up the chance to show it off to shootin' buddies.
when availability becomes better, i plan to get one in either 10MM or .45ACP, i still am having a hard time deciding.

I never saw an early 1990’s gun with e-clips, all of the ones I saw were nuts. That must have been an EARLY model!

I actually like the old stock better than the TS stock. Just feels more compact and controllable to me.

Glad to hear the old girl is still getting it done.
