    Hi folks! New here ... not new to firearms, although what did I just purchase? Pic attached, I hope. Any manuals available for this 995 model? I've stripped it down, just need to get bolt assembly apart, if that's possible. Appreciate any model suggestions.

    That is the first carbines hi point came out with (some people refer to them as the monkey stocks) before they started making the TS stocks i have 2 of them 1 in black and 1 in camo and also the 4095 in black.
    If you want to you can order the TS for $40 or $45 and change it over.

    Thanks for the feedback! I like it as is ... needed a starting point on what I had purchased fairly inexpensively. Seems to be clean, although must take down for thorough cleaning.

    Here's the manual:

    https://www.hi-pointfirearms.net/manuals/carbine995.pdf

    Note, in the 4095 manual, and in the more modern 995 TS manual, it says brush the barrel every 300-400 rounds, and to do a complete disassembly and cleaning every 1500-2000 rounds.

    So...don't think you have to tear it down completely every range trip.;)

    It runs better if you don't tear it down often. A bore brush after each use, then toss it in the safe til next time.
    Heres my classic 995:

    Thanks All! I realized quickly, the 995 isn't built to clean frequently. I'm giving it a once over, then to the range to check performance. Appreciate the feedback!

    Don't bother. Damn things are rigged. Mine just hits everything I aim at. All you'll do is waste ammo. A lot of ammo.
