Posted by CoastieGM Hi-Point 9mm carbine is amazing for the money. Gets the job done. Accurate as hell. Can hit a paper plate every time at 90 yards with iron sights. Holds a group the size of a quarter at 20 yards. Will drill a hole right through a 7-inch diameter pine tree at 65 yards while firing low-power Winchester white box ammo...won't get that penetration from a 9mm pistol. Absolutely never jams...ever. Would I use it in a gunfight around the house? You bet. Would I take it into military-type combat arena? Absolutely not. You don't need a Makita or Milwaulkee cordless drill for jobs around your apartment...a Ryobe is great for that. The older style stock is super-ergonomic. Frankly, it instinct shoots better than any $4-figure SMG I ever handled in the service. Can't say the same for the newer style stock. Hey, for 200 bucks, what do you have to lose. Great plinker or truck gun, and you won't cry if it gets stolen. It does have downsides that I can list if you'd like, but I'd still get it if I were you.


THis

For the price Hi Point has done absolutely everything I expected and I would buy again

Got a 995 Carbine...fun and cheap to shoot. Can shoot at an indoor range because it is a pistol caliber. Uses the same ammo as my Glock. I leave mine in my box blind during deer season as a hog gun!

Forever,
I've always had an extremely poor opinion of Hi-Point guns. OTOH, I recently read a VERY favorable review of their carbine. I wouldn't feel so bad about getting one if I was looking for a pistol cartridge carbine.

They only work if you hold them sideways when you shoot.

Thanks guys. That's all I needed to know


I was given a 9mm Hi-Point pistol. I have shot the crap out of it and it will not jam even with the cheapest Wolf or any other Russian junk ammo. I dont think you could hit anything at 25yds with it unless you unloaded the clip and then a second one. You then might hit your target. The carbines appear to be the pistol with some junk stuck to it. If I was going to shoot someone and only need a throw away weapon, I would buy one.

I won their new .40 in a raffle for a charity. Only put my ticket in that box because it was same caliber as my pistol and there wasn't a lot of tickets in the box (better shot of winning I thought). I brought it to the range and shot 150 rounds out of the box and did not have one issue. Since then I had a mag spring fail but I sent it back to them and they sent a replacement for free. From what I understand the design was changed drastically in '10 because of previous issues. Fun little carbine to shoot and at 30 -50 yards I can keep a pretty tight group. Basically you pull the trigger it goes boom...what more do you want from a cheap firearm?

I have the 9mm carbine and it is a good gun. first time I shot it I knocked an egret out of the air with it. cheap and I believe it has a lifetime no questions asked warranty. you can also get an ati stock for it that makes it look alot better. good gun for the money.

I was given a 9mm hi point hand gun and it shoots but thats about all. Not accurate and sells cheap for a reason.

re: Anyone here familiar with Hi-Point Firearms?


I have a JCP .40. Walked out of the store for $180 bucks.

It stays over my refrigerator or in my truck.

Shot about 500 through it. Jammed at first, but I polished the feed ramp with some light sandpaper and haven't had a problem since. Low recoil due to the weight, tough as nails, lifetime warranty, trash gun. At 15 yds I can put all 10 from the mag onto an 8" x 11" paper, even while moving.

Not good at anything I really would NEED a gun for, but there in case I have no other choice or I just don't care (i have other choices).

Would I defend my home with it? Nope, I have a Mossberg 500 with a folding stock and light for that.

Would I carry it? Nope, I have a Ruger 38 for that.

Would it be my night stand hand gun? Nope, Taurus .357 wheel gun for that.

Still a fun little trash gun to go shoot.

I'd like the .40 carbine eventually. Another trash toy gun.

I didnt really trash it but Im not bragging on it. Yes I have, I own one. Mine is fairly old though and I have no knowledge of the newer ones. They might have changed them up.

re: Anyone here familiar with Hi-Point Firearms?


I wasn't really keeping count, but I think all the trashing has come from folks who don't like the pistol, but haven't shot the carbine. OTOH, the carbine seems to be getting favorable reviews here. I think the key is to be aware of what one is getting. It will NOT be a highly refined, extremely accurate, nicely finished gun. The idea of a reliable, inexpensive, easy to handle 9mm carbine is attractive as a home defense gun, truck gun or "bug out" gun.
