    Hi folks - just picked up my first Hi Point carbine in 9mm. Cant wait to get it to the range to try it out. Couple of questions though, I am getting 2 dots on the BSA red dot that came with the carbine. Is this a battery issue? Another question - I usually break down and clean my firearms before using the first time, is this required for these as well? There does not seem to be the shipping grease on this as is on other manufactures. These questions have probably been beat to death on here but I could not find them in the forum search. Thanks in advance.

    Quite the opposite. They're rather dry. Blast it out with some rem-oil to remove any metal flakes and slick it up a bit.

    First welcome to the forum. And no you should not be getting two dots on your red dot. Try swapping out the battery and if you still getting 2 dots there is a problem with the scope.

    Thanks for the replies. I will change out the battery today and give the carbine a good swab out/lube job. Hopefully the battery change out will work. Last night I had 1 dot when I pulled it out of the box and turned it on but after mounting it today it had 2. BTW - I do understand speach to text AND auto correct. Its funny how our minds can pick out the meaning of sentences when words are scrambled.

    Update on the 2 dots. I was contacted by BSA and told to try the scope backwards and see if there was one dot. Yup - there was. They said " yeah - sometimes they do that". Umm ok.
