    Hi All. I received a very used 995 from a friend a couple months back. It has a few issues due to use and abuse but is a very fun gun to shoot at the range. I can definitely see the appeal on these guns.

    I'm relatively new to guns and am looking forward to learning much on this forum.

    Well here's your first lesson. Want to lose the issues and abuse? Send it in to Hi-Point. For the cost of shipping it'll be returned as good as new with a free magazine.

    Rich is right. And welcome! We'd love to see some range reports.

    Thanks for the warm welcome, everybody!

    That sounds like a good plan! Is there a return form that I have to fill out? Or do I just ship it back with a letter explaining the issues? Do I need to contact customer support first?

    Sorry for all the questions. I just want to make sure I follow procedure.

    I saw that Hi Point's website says:
    "When sending your gun to Hi-Point for repair, please include the following information: name, full address (including street, city, state, zip code), phone number, e-mail address, serial number and model of firearm, and a description of the needed repair. Also include all magazines that you use with your gun so our technicians can test the gun with its magazines. And finally, please be certain there are no live rounds shipped with the gun."

    Give them a call. They'll walk you through it.

    Lesson #2 = Call when they first open Monday morning for best results. It's actually a small family business and can be tricky to get through at times. Don't get pissed, just keep trying.
