    There was a 1 7/8" X 5 1/2" piece of sheet metal inside the box of my 4595 carbine, any idea why?

    I don't know, but I doubt it is of any significance. I think it would be fun to let this become a thread in which people come up with assorted creative answers for what it might be. :D

    It's a free target! :D
     
  5. It's part of a cookie cutter. Further evidence that Hi-Points are manufactured by Keebler Elves.

    yes it is to keep the barrel from coming thru the end of the box during shipping.

    They put it there so people will ask dumb questions as why it is there and what it is for.
     
  8. I am guessing it is to keep the aliens in outer space from seeing what is in the box...;)

    Rain gear for your front sight, its hard to balance though, takes allot of practice.

    If you look closely at it you will see a pattern on it. That way if you need a part you cut it out and leave mom alone.

    You stick the thing in your ear and get instant contact from mom, only suckers email or call mom after their firearm breaks.
    Together with your tin foil hat you can get best sound quality available.

    Holy sheet metal, Batman! One of the Megatronic Nanometric Shooting Systems has fallen into unauthorized hands!
