Carry Handle

Discussion in 'Hi-Point Carbines' started by unkster, Oct 29, 2015.

  1. I'm thinking of putting a AR style carry handle on my 9mm TS when it comes back from warranty repair. Any one know if it will work with the factory front sight....

    I doubt it will work because the AR carry handle is way taller than the stock site on the hipoint.. But don't quote me on that I haven't tried it.. My AR has a carry handle site on it and just by looking at the two I would say no..

    This was tried by several of us a few years a go. I don' think anybody was "truly" able to sight it in correctly. You will definitely have to use a matched set of front sight & rear sights. It is a very cool look!

    I would also suggest using the Longshot full length top rail, this may clear up a few issues we had. I don't think any of us tried that approach?

    I have a very long thread about it, im on mobile and not looking for the link right now, but its truly a pain in the A$$. It took way too much work to get it to function even decent.
    Best advise, dont bother.

    Anything you can dream up has probably been tried before lol
    No offense, just an observation.

    That doesn't mean don't do something if you really want to.
    This one, however, the end result just doesn't warrant the hassles and frustration.

    Dug up an old pic of how mine looked. By time i finally got it to work, i didn't even care anymore.

  8. I kind of thought the carry handle sights would be too high, I don't have the carry handle from my AR anymore, that is why I asked here....not worth the trouble...thanks

    Thanks for the link. I was thinking about upgrades. This saved me the trouble of Googling it.

    Longshot makes a standard height and a TALL...


    Was the front sight too short? What was the problem?
    Longshot's taller rail could help if the front sight was too tall.
    Someone else now makes a TALL HP Front sight, for certain applications.

    It would prolly be lots easier now, so many parts available!
