I was skeptical at first, well actually for a long time about Hi Point. I spotted a post (4 page long thread) on UZI Talk about the 995. I thought to my self that if full auto gun owners like it then its just fine. So I got one too.
The same day I bought it I took it out and shot it. After I got it sighted in about 10 shots walking it to the bullseye. I put 3 shots under an inch and a half at about 25 yds. Now I was sitting on the ground and using my legs for support. This little carbine is SUPER!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Mine is an "E" series. All black. It did not jam once. NOT ONCE. I took it out of the box and with out any lube, NO cleaning, it fired off 75 rounds. I agree this is not alot of rounds down range so bare with me. I tried lead reloads, 147 grn hollow points, 115 grn hollow points, 125 grn hollow points, LOW POWERED lead reloads, HOT loads for a Sten Submachine gun (I have a Sten Mk2 Machingun....yes machineguns are LEGAL), It ate ALL OF IT..
I took it home and cleaned it. I took it apart for a full detail strip. She is now lubed and cleaned with ten rounds in the mag. Not bad for a brand new 9mm carbine for $175 from a gunshow.
I am now a confirmed Hi Point follower,......screw the gun snobs :devilsidesmile:.
I have a small pile of 40 S&W ammo.......gonna get a Hi Point in 40. I would have at the gunshow but I wanted the carbine first. They did have the "Green" Hi Points on a few tables, one in 40 and a C9. They looked good to me :cool2:
One problem though, I need more magazines for it. It only came with one. Where do you guys get them? Direct from Hi Point or somewhere else?
Welcome to our support group.
There are five steps in our program. Step 1: Buy ammo and send it down range. Step 2: Buy more Hi-Points. Step 3: Laugh at all the Gun Snobs for paying way too much, then out shoot them at the range. Step 4: Happily spread your addiction to others whenever possible. Step 5:Repeat steps 1 through 4 endlessly.
Unfortunately, these are not steps to recovery.
There is no recovery.
My assistant, Leland, will be by to dole out the meds. :sleezy:
