I've bought four HP weapons in the past year: the CF380, the C9, the JHP and the 995 carbine. The rifle came assembled in an ATI stock. I know that's yesterday's news, but I thought you might want a brief report.

I finally got to a range with the 995 a couple weekends ago and I'm a believer. I'd removed the iron sights and re-mounted the rail, then a Tru-Glo red dot sight. I'd "prepped" the extra HP mags and planned to zero the sight in, presuming the out of the box settings would need some work.

I placed the red dot on the target and the round went right there, exactly on target. And it went there again and again, exactly where I pointed it. No misfeeds, no FTF's, shooting WWB. Never had to adjust the sight a bit, from "up close and personal" out to 25 yards. There wasn't a millimeter of difference in shot placement on target. The rifle barely kicked (got the softer buttpad) and that's a plus since I've got a permanently damaged right shoulder. I haven't had as well-shot a target since my M-14 days in the Infantry.

Now I'd love to have one of these in .45ACP! And the C9 and JHP go to the range in the next couple weeks. Can't wait.

It is my personal opinion that the HI POINT 995 carbine is without a doubt one of the best buys on the firearms market today. They're very accurate, reliable, and are a great choice for a small game-varmint carbine, as well as a personal home defense weapon, all at a moderate price everyone can afford. I love this little carbine so much that I own (2). :D

All I can say is that I agree 100%. The only thing more fun than a 995, is a 995 & a 4095 :D

Bought a C-9 and a 995 last month. Took the C9 on a trip to Fla. and got a chance to try it out at a range while there - as sweet (if not sweeter that my S&W Sigma 9 or S&W Model 915 - I just like 9mm!). Had a Red Dot put on my 995 at a Gun Show last weekend and went to the range today. Target was a 24"w x 36" wide and first 10 shots did not even hit the paper at 15yds. I'm really not blind - but I was frustrated.) Finally decided to put a bore scope in the barrell and match to the Red Dot. Wow - suprised I wasn't shooting someone elses target - the Red Dot was way off. Once corrected, it worked like a Champ. I impressed not only myself (easy to do) but a couple guys in the lane next to me. They each fired the 995 and were instantly converted! It has no kick and the bullseye is quickly reattained. I agree with other posts - one of the best kept secrets out there!
