    1st, There is NO need for you to tell MoM your serial number, Not required, unless you need warranty work.
    2nd, There is NO internet site, NO MoM will NOT tell you a Born on Date for your gun. I don't think they keep those records

    When you get your Serial number, post it on here. Maybe between several of us, we can narrow it down to a year, maybe a month? It has been one of Hi Points greatest secrets?

    Its likely been made within the last year.

    It honestly makes no difference, its not some vintage collectible gun that a specific year of manufacture could mean huge money.

    An "A" serialed HiPoint used is about $250, an "R" serialed HiPoint used, is worth and $250.

    As stated in another thread my 995 had an R preface, found out it was made just before the TS came out, something like Feb 1999? Not 100% sure about the date. Can't totally remember.

    In the first quarter of 2009, a new model of the 995 carbine was released, the 995TS, which features a new stock and last round hold open. The TS model is slightly more expensive than the "995 Classic". The newest model, the Model 4595 in .45 ACP,[3] is available only in the new TS configuration. As of September 2010, the "995 Classic" or "4095 Classic" are no longer featured on the Hi-Point website.[4]

    Thank you, then the date was 2009, not 1999. I remembered "Feb" and I knew there was a "9" in the date, but wasn't sure about it. Hey not too bad for an FOG. That was a three years ago, I'm lucky to remember what I did last month!

    Congratulations on letting us all know you're now in felony possession.
    How did you buy it and not look at the serial number? Not such a smart move there.

    There are supposed to be three serial # locations on a carbine, two in unovious locations.

    So.... you're saying my 2-3 year old 995 TS is worth... $250? :D :D :D

    My guess is they didn't grind off the non obvious one.


    No. You touching it degrades its value considerably.

    Send it to MoM for a refurb and sell it as new? Absolutely.
