    I had a scope and replaced it with a red dot sight. My thought was that if I was shooting at 100+ yards, a scope was needed, but the gun was lacking. If I was shooting at less than 100 yards, the gun was adequate, but the scope was in the way of my sight picture. Your mileage may vary.

    I like a little less magnification for plinking, but a 3X9 would be good for target shooting.

    My favorite is my Simmons 1.5-5X20 Whitetail classic.

    I had a scope on my 995ts for a bit, but the plastic top rail is not stable enough to keep zero. I put the iron sights back on. I have a red dot on my 4595ts and I dont really care for it either. I may get a low profile top rail from longshot mfg. For both of em.

    No, that's an OEM Camo classic, they came in 995 and 4095. They also make the green JCP and JHP grip scales in that style.

  9. Had the same problem and this can be very annoying. Tho I pulled the rail and used blue loctite on the screws and it seems to be holding now.

    had the "staying tight" problem with a laser on a a S&W SD40VE I had. The blue thread locker stopped it. Always keep that stuff around

    Whatever scope HP offers as a factory option.
    Though I did notice they offer the carbines with a 4x red dot, but only offer the normal one in their accessories page
