$166 gets it in my hands, gunshow prices were around $220 for 995's that were in very bad shape. This one looks very clean and well cared for.

wheres the best place to get an ATI stock?

Congrats on the win!

The 995 is a very nice little shooter. Add on the ATI stock from Benny and it gets even better as you can add on all kinds of toys.


Have Fun!

Whoo hoo! just picked it up from the Dealer today.

First impression: its small light and easy to maneuver....also homely.
Trigger was super gritty and almost impossible to pull.
I dont like the stock too much as it flexes when i shoulder it. maybe an aluminum plate connecting all of the bolts in the stock would fix that?

the knob on the charging handle sucks and the bolt hold open sucks!
wouldnt a notch in the slide similar to the c9s hold open work just as well??

I just finished tearing it down and...This thing was sold as used but i dont think its ever been fired! theres no carbon anywhere! the feedramp is unmarked and theres no wear at any contact points.

I do however think the previous owner mistook the carbine for a shovel as there was a ton of sand and grease inside the FP channel & sear.

I cleaned everything up, polished all contact surfaces, polished the sear and the channel it sits in, now the trigger is extremely smooth and has a trigger pull a little lighter than my c-9.

Ive got a few weaker springs the same size as the one under the sear but i dont know how safe it is to experiment w/ them, so ill not mess w/ it.

Perhaps they used it as a target, but couldn't hit it...

try throwing a red dot scope on the factory stock and you may be suprised how well it handles and shoots. Nothing against the ATI stocks, but I personally find the carbines great to shoot as is
