    Im pretty much a gun enthuisiest.
    Been itching for a carbine like my old mini14 M1
    I owned a H.P. 380 pistol eons ago and hated the look and due to a national shortage of ammo, never got to shoot it.

    I read reviews on the 45 carbine from H.P. and saw several youtubes on it. Then saw the Hickcock vid " sorry if mispelled. After that i ordered it today.

    My first order of business is to fabricate a large cap magazine for it possibly revamp the mag slot to accomidate a wider mag design.

    Not sure it exists yet... but im going to make a 40 hipoint cartridge.. 45 necked down to a 40. This will improve cambering issues.

    And going to manu. A better ejection system other than a firing pin ejection. Since the most important thing is to go bang.. Im just going to add an ejector tab, add a recess to permit new ejector tab to do its job before the pin does.

    Well that's certainly ambitious of you. Welcome to the Asylum. Good luck. ;)

    This part of SE Oregon?
    I lived in Lakeview for a while.

    Not sure what chambering issues there are with the .45?

    :welcome:31U_Airborne!

    Good Luck with your mods. I have wondered about a separate ejector
    also, maybe something along the lines of a shotgun system? Remington
    has one that is pinned to the back (left) wall of the receiver...

    Oh, I believe your "40 in a 45 case" has been done, called a 40 Super...
    Or maybe a 40 Cor-Bon but it's been done. You would just need
    to ream the 40 S&W chamber out to 45 ACP specs, stopping at
    the proper depth, obviously. Putting a ton more power through
    a Hi Point Carbine is maybe not the best idea, we have a member
    (AOOA) who ruined a 995 bolt with 500 rounds of
    NATO 9mm, but MoM fixed it under warranty.

    Except it has been demonstrated that NATO 9 mm ISN'T that hot, and so the problem was probably just a bad bolt, and not the ammo.;)

    Mole in the attic is drunk again.

    HP 45 pistol or carbine is the most reliable line HP makes.

    So that is GOOD NEWS, I have a ton of that 9mm NATO,
    and it should be OK in my 995!
