    I recently picked up a used 995ts at a local gunshop. The carbine looked to be in decent shape, the only issue was that the previous owner had removed the rear sight as well as the elevation screw to place a reddot on.

    He of course lost these these screws and with hipoint closed for the holiday, I am looking for something I can pick up at a hardware store that will work in a pinch till I get replacements from hipoint. Any suggestions?

    Yea, i suggest waiting a day and calling HiPoint.
    They are closed for what holiday? 4th of July? Why would they be closed all week?

    Some small corporations take summer vacay all together,
    as opposed to juggling schedules and cross training employees.

    Why not just use the red dot?

    I shot 2 HP Carbines, back to back, one with irons (995TS) and one with a red dot (4095TS) and my groups were a tad bit tighter with the 995... Now that is not at all scientific, and I was more used to the 995, plus it was getting dark as I switched over to the 4095. I also tried a more rapid fire rate with the 4095...

    In the car biz they shut down for retooling, maintenance etc twice a year. I will have shutdown week on July 13th. Ford was shutdown last week.

    Yes and no. I am on the logistics end. I haul parts to the plants, or from the plants to other plants. The company I work for gives me 2 weeks a year paid. They want us to take them 5 months apart. I did one week in June last year and this year. I got paid for the shut down because I threw my baby blues on the boss lady in the home office. I should find out on Monday if they will give it to me again. We shutdown at Christmas for over a week. Depends on where Christmas and New Years falls.

    Seems to be missing, and I see no "mod tag" for editing...
