    So i have purchased my first Hi-point or more accurately i have traded for it. Last week i traded my Maverick 88 home security model with knoxx stock for a 4095TS it had a tasco red-dot and a forward grip on it ( one mag). Now i am not new to carbines i own a Marlin camp 9 Nickel version and have had some range time with a CX4. However this is my first experience with a Hi-Point. I felt i needed to make it fit me a little better. I added a Flagway Metal carry handle and Tapco rail for the red dot as i have read a lot about cheek slap. I also added a 150 LUM light and a barrel shroud. Looks great so far i have yet to take it out but that will come

    Welcome to the asylum.

    Not too shabby for your first hi point. I own a 4095TS myself and I don't understand why all these girly-men complain about the cheek slap, I've never experienced it even once with the thousands of rounds I've sent down range. Could be the beard, might be because I don't let my mommy dress me funny, or it could even be the fact that I don't wear frilly lace underwear like some of these cupcakes around here. :stir: :nahnah:

    Anyways, welcome to the forum. Ask away if you have any questions and we'll do our best to keep you on the right path.

    if it do decide to keep the 40 i will be looking for a matching pistol as i like to have carbine/pistol combo's with interchangeable mags. I have a few guns i "will never part with for any price"

    Rach - If I was your size, Marine, I wouldn't worry about cheek slap either! H#!!, your rifle is prolly scared to slap you

    You should try to bore sight your gun before you take it to the range?
