I fired my 995 today for the first time. I am extremely ecstatic and impressed with this firearm. I shot 400 rounds without any problem (except bolt stuck back twice due to ATI stock). 50 of these rounds were Winchester 115 grain targets, the rest were all my own hand loads. My 995 was the topic of conversation at the range. When I first took it out, the old timer range officer said that it was a great investment and that it's accuracy is unparalled to other 9MM carbines. Sighting in at 15 yards was very easy, 3 shot group, center mass a little low. I moved the front sight down and fired 3 more shots on top of each other - I achieved point of aim, point of impact. Went to the 25 yards and there was no sight adjustment needed. I started to get cocky with the accuracy of this weapon and decided to show off a little because a shooter came in with a Kel-Tec carbine and was knocking my Hipoint. He kept telling me it looked like a Planet of the Apes gun, even with the ATI on it. So I went head to head with this guy - Kel-Tec vs. Hipoint. There was a 6x6 inch metal plate hanging from chains at 60 yards. He shot from a rested sitting position. I was standing offhand and used a hasty sling. He went 3 for 5, I went 15 for 15. Guess who was laughing then. The recoil on this weapon is nothing compared to the RRA, Uzi, or MP5. I don't know if it's because of the ATI stock or my handloads. For the price and the fun of this gun, I am totally satisfied. Thanks for all your posts in helping me decided to buy this carbine.
