I've got a red dot and magnifier that I want to mount (possibly a set of 45* backup iron sights as well) it has to be PICATINNY (the WEAVER rail does not work)
does anyone have any suggestions on a top rail (Picatinny) for the carbine?

I know Longshot makes some rails https://longshotmanufacturing.com/t/hi-point
and JS arms makes a couple as well https://jsarms.yolasite.com/carbine-parts-page.php#RAILS

does anyone have any opinion between these two?
or anything else?

it looks like an 11/11.5" inch rail will replace the stock one
but a 15.4" rail will come out to the end of the fore-grip
longshot makes a 21" that comes all the way to the front sight post

btw,
I'm leaning towards a 15" rail (dont think I have the need for a 21" rail, let alone spend that much more money)

Rails ain't cheap. I have a Longshot on one of my 4595's. There is cheaper hardware out there on ebay and amazon. I am no scope expert. Isn't 3X kind of ambitious for a 45?

I dont think so

I've got no problem hitting clay's @30 yards or so,
but a 3x should help me get out to the effective range of the 45acp (50 yards with a 5" 1911)

Hi-Point sells the carbine with a 4x scope
I think anything more can be a bit much (I was looking at 3x, 5x, and 7x multipliers)

It's a plastic rail. Grab a file and make it fit.
