    Finally neutered the trigger dingus using Napp's method; 100% successful. Much more confident in the HTA's operation now.

    Houston we have a problem. I found these items while cleaning her. Looks like she'll be getting dressed back into the Hi-Point stock and sent back. Will this be a full barrel replace or a weld and polish? First pic is a crack in the feed ramp.

    What did you do to it? You GROUND the feed ramp? If you did it may be on your dime.

    Not sure what happened, bad rounds? I did have a few issues of the bullet not loading correctly, thought it was me not fully pulling back on the charge handle though. Never grounded the ramp but it does look like it needs it.

    A. They might polish the ramp to see if it comes out or is indeed a crack.

    B. They'll just replace it.

    I'm not seeing a crack, but I'm not the one up close and inspecting it...

    Looks like "possibly" a crack to me, under a void in the casting. I've done a lot of grinding on metals in my day, but never on a feed ramp. Either way, the void needs filled in, at a minimum. Hopefully the factory warranty is still in full force. If it is a crack, I think you could make a case for a prior malfunction, and your own home-baked attempt at a solution.

    I just talked to a tech. The carbine was made 14 weeks ago, I must of bought it strait from the line. The bent pin according to them was probably caused by a hot round, it seems common by the conversation, good thing is it will still fire, which mine did last time I shot. As for the crack they wanted to see pictures to decide the next step. Cracks can be caused by dissimilar metal contact, manufacturing design (corner, location stress), and bad metal composition/quality. To me it does look like it's following the bend in the ramp, adjacent to a corner, and who know maybe there is a void below it as you mentioned. Either way the assembly needs to be replaced but the barrels will be kept. Also, they will shoot multiple rounds for every mag I send in with it for testing. Finally, only a 3 week turn around time they are claiming. That's great customer service! upload_2020-10-28_13-32-2.png

    Why does it look like someone went at it with a Dremel and a coarse sanding drum?

    I believe Roger Jimenez is using the HTA conversion, but yeah, this issue has nothing to do w/t HTA stock.
    Looks to me like the ramp has been ground like crazy! I can't imagine HP sending a new rifle out like that.
    And I know I'm new and only have one 995 carbine, but with a factory mag secured fully in the rifle the nose of the round only hits the upper 1/3 of the ramp and pops right into the chamber. I don't understand all these feeding issues. If anything, the lower 2/3 rds of the ramp could actually be built up, not ground down.

    Man somebody ground the shit out of that ramp! You can even see where his Dremel ran away from him a couple of times and ran up and bit into the support on the right side of the ramp lol. Wow!

    IMG_20201031_112259_375.JPG I added a GMG 5x magnifier behind my old TruGlo red dot. It really helped my astigatism issue. It swings out for close range shots. I see perfectly a formed red circular dot for the first time.

    I added this to my HiPoint/HTA collection. The HTA MBS 995 still gets the most use but the MBS 1095 is a blast! 10mm is also legal for whitetail deer in my state. 40SW runs through it no problem! But. I'm told the shorter case can foul the 10mm chamber over time?

    I got mine 3 weeks ago. After about 20 mags through it, it started dropping mags out when I fired it. After shooting it more trying to figure out which mag was the problem, they all started doing it. Then they would fall out just closing the bolt. Unfortunately there were a bunch of hi point haters there and all it did was confirm their beliefs. I put it away and went home. I took the rifle apart and found the mag catch had serious wear on it already. I took photos and contacted HTA and Andy had a new one to me out to me in a couple days.

    I do feel like this problem will come back since the mag catch is plastic and the mags are stamped steel. One of my mags had a small burr on the notch which is what I figure caused the rapid wear. I'm going to try to modify the old worn one to have the catch made from some sort of metal. Brass or steel probably.

    Check your mags for burrs and sand them smooth if you plan on running the HTA stock kit!

    Hi guys,

    I’m seriously considering getting a HTA to spruce up the old B series 995 that I have. The limited edition FDE one has caught my eye. I thought I would ask a couple of questions within this thread for feedback before any purchase. I was originally going to get either a new ATI or TS stock and fix the 995 up just a bit. I was leaning towards a TS stock after the learning concerns about potential issues with an ATI stock, and cleaning up the TS stock some by pulling off the stock rails and only having a long aftermarket top rail with fixed “iron” sights on it.


    However, I’m now considering the HTA, partly due to having a teenage daughter and thinking that the weight distribution, and a slightly smaller grip, might be easier for her to handle when she uses it. I don’t have access to look at and handle an HTA, so I'm trying to figure a few more things out before I pull any trigger and order. I have limited experience with bullpups and have only handled IWI Tavor and Steyr AUG bullpups with advanced optics, so very different animals and not sure how relevant it would even be to this endeavor. I guess the Hi-Point could be a backup HDG, but I don’t have this in high consideration for that with this rifle at this time.


    I’m wondering how many of you have had success in just running “iron” sights on their HTA bull pups, and if you are just running iron sights, which ones? The really short top rail, and the straight run from the butt to the tip, have me thinking that it might need taller iron sights than I would have needed on the TS stock (with a new picatinny rail mentioned above) in order to have a more comfortable fit . I’m really not wanting to run any type of optic at this time. Most people seem to run optics for easier use, but I'm also training a young shooter and prefer her learning without extra help. She is used to peep sights, and I still prefer them over other options much of the time.


    Second question, is the front of the HTA stock just as atrociously thick as the TS for stock is?


    Last question, does the HTA reduce the experienced check slap that can be experienced with the Hi-point stocks?


    Thanks for the help,
