Been lurking here for a minute, checking out the threads and gauging feedback and general opinions on these carbines. Finally pulled the trigger last month; a local guy on the KC guntrader boards had a new 995TS listed for $225. Sounded like a steal, since 995B's have been listed (and sold) at the gun shows for $250 used. I got it sighted in Labor day weekend (front post leaning strong left like others have mentioned) and blasted off two hundred cheapo JHP's with zero malfunctions.. Feeling very satisfied, these things are a blast! I'll have to wait until I get a few hundred more rounds through it to concrete my impression/opinion, but so far I'm very impressed. Thanks to all you guys who have developed quality threads here for your shared experiences and insight, it helped ease my hesitation, and I made one of my favorite purchases ever.
