Do I need to add anything else?

  • Obviously, look at that thing.

First off, if you are reading this article, and you are on the fence about the 1095TS, I would say get it.

Seriously, I don't think you will be upset with the purchase. Out of the box, it is fun. Really fun, but when you have put a few mods on it, you will get everything you can out of it (mcarbo spring and metal pin kit; trigger spring reinforcement) you can. I don't think this will need to be replaced for a lifetime.

I can't figure out what else NEEDS (aside from the clip) to be added/modified, so until my next weapon, this is my final build.

Really need to work on the lighting for your pic.

Hi-Points don't have a trigger spring. You screwed with a very important safety feature on your carbine. Put the factory sear spring back in it because what you did was a really stupid thing.

Members here are really tired of newbies doing this stupid mod as they know what can happen. And you will defend it to the death because you spent money on it, and get all butthurt and take your toys elsewhere. Read the disclaimer that M-Carbo has on their website. They know what they did when they started marketing that spring and lying calling it something that it isn't.

Have a nice day.

What the “metal pin kit”?
Recoil spring and rod?

I've never even heard of people replacing the trigger spring. What does that particular kit do?

Its not the trigger spring it's the sear spring and considering the design of the HP guns that is not a good idea.

If your Talking about the Mcarbo sear spring.The HI point carbine is drop test and certified with there sear spring in it.I have it in mine and it makes the trigger pull about 3 less lbs.
Goes from roughly 8lbs to 5lbs. Best improvement you can make.Its perfectly safe

Until he admitted, on this forum, that it has caused and can cause runaway FA events.

So like you're an engineer/expert/gunsmith? Did you scroll down to the disclaimer that says you're on your own when the gun goes full auto? That carnival barker at MCarbo is full of shit. He claims no responsibility at all when things go bad. Or did you not comprehend what he said?

Of course they have a disclaimer for legal purposes.
I would to there a business.Some people have no mechanical
skills.It Does not make them bad people .They should have a gun smith

There is a video floating around YT of a C9 with a "trigger spring kit" that fires every time it's dropped.
Would you be honest enough to tell us if your carbine slamfired?
You've been gunsmithing...well then.

*Its not the first time we've discussed this, about every month or so.
Here a link with the video

Do understand that the ones discouraging the use of the aftermarket sear spring are offering their advice only with the best of intentions. That spring is the only thing holding the sear up to keep the firing pin to the rear, so less tension means less force keeping that sear elevated where it needs to be. Most of us have had to put the original spring and the sear back in after they've fallen out on their own during maintenance. It isn't exactly advanced gunsmithing.

The only question at issue is whether the Mcarbo spring provides sufficient tension on the sear to retain the firing pin in its cocked position when the weapon is handled roughly. If you are confident in the safety of that modification, then more power to you. I hope it works well for years to come. If it turns out that something unsafe happens with the weapon, you can always put the original spring back in.

Of course i understand that its drop tested at 3 different levels.I am sure they are not interested in marketing a un safe
sear spring.
