I like my .45 JHP pistol except for the fairly horrible trigger. Lots of creep and if you're trying to do a nice, slow squeeze, don't bother...you never know exactly the point at which it''s going to make the gun go bang. Does anyone know if the carbine's trigger is any better?
It should. To ignore either links that I've provided or what you've provided would be foolish. If you shoot a few boxes a year of ammo, the Hi Point is better than a boat anchor. If you are a serious shooter and don't want to trust your life to a pot metal pistol, get something better.
I have one of these myself and what a blast to shoot, never jams, no recoil and pretty accurate for what it is...even my 10 abd 13 year old boys like it...I paid less than this though thru gunbroker.com. Course that was last year before all the yit hit the fan....
I've not experienced an issue with my Hi-Point 995. It shoots everything I've thrown at it.
I've never cleaned it, and it continues to shoot and be fairly accurate. I treat it this way because I only paid $130 new for it (years ago).
I may have to clean it and care for it more given the current price.
Even though I like the 995, at the current price, I'd pass on it and wait until prices come down.

it appears that the BHO Administration is taking executive action on firearms importation. Take a few minutes to read this: After Senate setback, Obama quietly moving forward with gun regulation. Here is the key portion of the article:
"The Importation of Defense Articles and Defense Services -- U.S. Munitions Import List references executive orders, amends ATF regulations and clarifies Attorney General authority “to designate defense articles and defense services as part of the statutory USML for purposes of permanent import controls,” among other clauses specified in heavy legalese requiring commensurate analysis to identify just what the administration’s intentions are. Among the speculations of what this could enable are concerns that importing and International Traffic in Arms Regulations [ITAR] may go forward to reflect key elements within the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty." [Emphasis added.]
Depending on how it is implemented, the implications of this change could be huge. With the stroke a of a pen and without the consent of Congress, ATF bureaucrats could make ANY gun part or accessory (including magazines) or ammunition that were originally manufactured or perhaps even those designed for military use no longer legal for importation for civilian use. That might mean no more milsurp parts sets. No more milsurp magazines. No more milsurp ammo. No more milsurp optics. Perhaps not even spare firing pins. This could be ugly.
I strongly recommend that you stock up on magazines, ammunition and spare parts for any of your imported military pattern guns, as soon as possible! Once an import ban is implemented, prices will skyrocket. Importation of Chinese military guns and ammunition was banned during the Clinton Administration, but importers quickly worked around that, by tapping other sources. But imagine if all of the channels for military surplus are cut off. That mean no more spam cans of any of the Russian calibers, no more battle packs of .223 or .308, and no more affordable AK, HK, FAL, Galil, or SIG magazines.
This may be just the first of several executive actions/orders. There is also the possibility of a blanket ban on the importation of any civilian magazines (Glock, SIG, Beretta, etc.) of more than 10 round capacity, by declaring them "non-sporting." There is a precedent for that, as well, set in 1989. That ban could be grossly widened. And don't look for too much support from American gun makers on this issue. They actually benefit from import bans. They benefited in 1968, when import of most of the milsurp rifles stopped. And they benefited again with the 1989 Import Ban.
Don't dawdle. Be proactive! If you wait until after the door slams shut, then you will be paying two or three times the price. If there is a gun show near you this weekend, then you should be there, with a wad of cash.
I wondered about the high capacity mag question, too.
The nice thing about the .45 version is that it can use 911 standard magazines with only a slight modification. Basically you have to dimple one of the holes in the std magazine. There are YouTube vids that show you how/where. So I went to a local gun show and bought a couple high cap 911 .45 mags. Came home, and took about 5 minutes to make the dimple. Now I have 2 high cap mags for my .45 High Point Carbine and matching .45 High Point pistol....
I have been looking at these after shooting my buddy's 995TS. Shoots great. My local gun store has these at $269 normal price. They have the .45 version for $340 normal price. May have to look into the .45 magazine mods.
Yea, I am so fed up with Cuomo. He still stands by the law saying it is fair and balanced. He essentially made law abiding citizens criminals overnight, not sure how that is fair. I am hoping that it gets repealed or something, but in the meantime, my next house will most likely be out of NY state since I live close to the PA border.
Those laws are like tax increases. They will never be repealed. Most unfortunate.
