    Is it sad that I haven't fired a single round but I've already started adding stuff? :D Going to zero the iron sights first then the red dot and finally the laser. Unless I should change that order up?

    Next Monday will be the range day. Gonna try to go through 200~300 rounds. Cannot wait.

    All I need now is to get my cheek pad put on and a flashlight. Any thoughts or recommendations on a bright ass flashlight?

    Wouldn’t it make better sense to zero the laser first? Then you can use it for the rd and iron sights.

    I could do that, does makes sense. :)

    Not really. He's still adjusting a sighting device to line up poa with poi. If he gets the irons and rds on, all he has top do is bring the laser in to true with them.

    My laser is sighted for 25 yard, my irons are set to 50. It would make more sense to set his sights up for different ranges.

    I just thought of hat and came back to post that he may sight them for different distances but you beat me to it.

    That also makes sense as that is what I was going to do first. Distances would be the same as well. This is of course dependent on what the range has setup for available distances. Looks like I'll be able to get out to the range on Thursday. :D

    Also what is POI and POA? Point of impact? Not sure what the other one is. Don't laugh at me being a noob.

    You're almost there, Point Of Impact & Point Of Aim, (of course they're supposed to end up as the same).

    Awesome thanks.
     
  9. I set mine up to 50yds. Just me. I am not "Joe Marksman." Usually isn't much difference between 25 to 50.

    Supposed to be. Sometimes it's the next county over.

    Well that was a disappointment. I hate the iron sights with a passion and I forgot my riser so couldn't use the red dot. Loved how the hi-point shot and the overall operation I just couldn't zero-in shit. Apparently the allen wrenches I got with the carbine weren't able to take off the iron sights at the range so I was basically shooting blind. The operating handle was a bit tough so I hope it does loosen up over time.

    I can also say my laser is a piece of junk too I think but I'll wait until I can zero in my red dot before making a proper decision. I just couldn't waste another box of 50 rds shooting air so I cut today's session short.

    Took off those iron sights when I got home and put on my red dot with a riser. Next time I'll be better prepared. An a positive note the .308 rifle I was also shooting was easy to hit the bullseye @ 100yds. And I got lots of compliments on how my hi-point looked at least. :)

    I put the side rails from HP on my carbine for the flashlight and laser. I think I put them back on for a pic here on the forum and never bothered to take them back off again.

    Thanks for the replies. :D

    I've got the down range handle on there and I don't feel like it's causing the problem. Maybe I need to elaborate on what's happening. It isn't pulling back that's the problem is releasing it to load a round after inserting a new mag of rounds. It feels like it is stuck almost. Make sense?

    What rail should I replace the one under the barrel with to attach the laser? Keep in mind this laser was super cheap since I bought it for my CO2 BB Smith & Wesson M&P pistol. It IS likely a POS but I do like how it operates so I hope I can salvage it. At the least it'll be intimidating to an intruder if push came to shove.

    I've removed the front sight as well. With the riser under my TRS-25 red dot I feel like it will be a much better improvement. Just need more time and ammo on the next visit.

    Do you have a link to the pic? Also forgive the noob question but where and how do I mount a side rail?

    Also I'm not really finding a decent flashlight/rail combo so should I just get one of those holders and put just a regular small tactical flashlight in there?

    You can buy the side rails right from Hi Point. I think I bought the cheapo ncstar fashlight and mount from walmart. I don't have the picture on my phone, let me switch over to my laptop.

    The button for the laser is run down to the FG where it's velcroed in place.

    Ok put another 100 rounds through it today. I was able to zero in my TRS-25 @ 10 yards after only 1 shot and 2 shots @ 25 yards. With the riser added this was an absolute BREEZE. :D
    The target on top was @ 10 yards with the hit far left the first shot before zeroing it in. The target on the bottom was @ 25 yards. The two bottom hits were before I zero'd. Put two clips through the 25 yard target consistently getting through the same hole. This thing is SWEET!! Big props to Hi-Point for a fan-freaking-tastic carbine. My only complaint was the weight. While I'm not out of shape my arms started to get tired after 50 rounds or so--and after 100 I was a noodle. I went over to the handgun range to shoot pistols with the father-in-law with his Glock with a .357 barrel (I hate Glocks) and his M1911 (WWI issue) was fun with noodling arms. :rolleyes: I was pleasantly surprised on how little recoil the 995 had, as in almost non-existent.

    As a bonus my wife after a couple of rounds of seeing how it would behave was able to hit a 3" group in the center @ 10 yards for her first time with it. She had no trouble with the charging handle either so that's a win as well! :cool:

    The bad news. My laser is a cheap POS. :mad: I zero'd it in after a full clip and after 1 shot, ONE SHOT, it moved. Guess I'll be looking for a new red (or green) laser. I prefer the push button on the back rather than a button connected to a wire...that limits my choices I know. This laser isn't even good enough for my CO2 BB guns.

  19. I have weighed my PSA AR9. It's pretty heavy. I can re weigh it tonight VS a 995TS. The AR isn't light. The bolt on them is pretty heavy. If you want light the Sub2000 is 4.5lbs. It has a lot more recoil.
