    I have the 9mm in the camo "Planet of the Apes" stock, came with a laser which I rarely use since the thing is so accurate with the iron sights. It is a great gun... I would like to get one of the new .45 ACP carbines.

    Well, there's always going to be at least one...

    I gotta say though in all honesty (and I am a big believer in quality firearms) I can't see how you could think that...

    Then again I have grown accustomed to the ATI stock which completely transforms the whole nature of the firearm, it's like night and day. I wasn't a big fan of the original stock.

    But still for the price paid, you can't expect a Cadillac. They go bang every time you ask them to which is all that counts in the end. They sort of remind me of an AK-47 in that they are inexpensively made, yet tough as nails. Except for the original stock of course.

    You say Hi Point gave you one to review? What publication do you write for? Please post your full review for us. You do realize we are only talking about the 995 carbine not HP handguns.

    Guess I spoke out of turn, the model I had was a 4595TSFG.

    Am a moderator over on m1911.org, as well as an LEO, and was sent a 4595TSFG to my dept. from MKS Supply.
    I have been sent many a firearm over the last 5-6 years for T&E's. Am currently packing a Wilson X-Tac, doing a long term test of their Armor-Tuff finish.
    Can check out my review of both the X-Tac, and the ongoing finish test here; The M1911 Pistols Organization Forums Site - X-Tac Armor-Tuff Finish test

    Anyway, the owner of m1911.org arranged for me to receive the gun, which really doesn't fit anything that I would use it for. The carbine failed to function reliably even after it was taken apart and thoroughly cleaned and lubed. Finally got it running, but was very unimpressed with it. It would make an ok plinker, throw it in the truck and go camping firearm, but wouldn't rely on it for much more than that.

    My standards for testing are for much higher than just plinking, so needless to say it failed miserably. And there ain't a whole lot of love put into them things anyway, pretty rough inside and out...especially out!

    Don't mean to ruin anyone's day, I just report what I happen to find.

    Be well.

    I pretty much concur with all things said here, However, I do think this egesta can be polished and made serviceable with a little effort on Hi Points part.

    I agree, I don't think it would take much effort on their part to put out a bit better product.

    The vast majority of people who own the HP carbine use them for plinking and as a a cheap truck gun IMO. I own a lot of firearms, far more than the average shooter and personally would not use this carbine as a HD or SHTF weapon because I have many other higher quality rifle options, but that being said the 995 would serve that purpose relatively well for many people. Also remember the .45 cal version is the newest member to the HP carbine lineup and not as proven as the 9mm model.
