    I keep hearing bout this 9mm High Point rifle with the pistol magazine. I saw one at Durhams for 259.00. It is a neat looking gun. A friend says you can get them at gun shows for about 175.00 or more.

    Is this a decent rifle for the price, can any one tell me the ins and outs of this rifle.

    Pros- Reliable, cheap, reasonably accurate to the range of a pistol caliber carbine (doesn't go much further than that in Michigan), and it has a great warranty.

    Cons- Low capacity, low power, ugly looks.



    All things considered, if you want a 9mm carbine, it's not a bad way to go.

    I'm not spending 500 on a S&W .22 tactical rifle, and I can not afford 800-1200 for a .223. I thought this might be a good compromise.

    Depends on what you want.

    If, say, you wanted more power and longer range, I'd say SKS.

    If you wanted really long range and lot's of power, I'd say Mosin Nagant.

    If you want relatively cheap rapid fire practice, and a HD gun that won't over penetrate too badly with the right ammo, the Hi Point will work.

    It shoots some of the most readily available ammo.

    It is ugly, but you can get a different stock for it. Makes all the difference.

    I got mine 8 yrs ago. My son loves it and with a scope mount I made for it, he was shooting bottle caps off 2 liter bottles at 100ft, no problem. I had mainly purchased it for him in lieu of a 410 as a starter rifle. I then practiced and found it to be very nice for close quarter home defense. Even if out of ammo, it makes a nice club. I got it for $119 out the door, good investment for me.

    really cant beat it for the money, I got mine for 159 a few years back and would never sell it to be honest. I wouldnt drop the money on a new stock, its a cheap rifle, fun to plink with, reliable and fairly accurate use it for what it is. Comes with scope mounts to I believe.

    They have a 40 cal also I think. I could be wrong.

    yes they make it in .40

    i would post a link directly to it but hi point is currently "updating our carbine selections"

    making me wonder if they are adding and/or dropping calibers

    but to the left the page DOES list 9mm and .40



    ah heck heres the link with that above message.

    http://www.hi-pointfirearms.com/carb..._carbines.html



    i would consider this carbine,but i would want to see a tri or quad rail stock for it,so that it could be fully setup with whatever you want,lights(which i feel should be required for an HD) lasers,grips...whatever


    not a lawyer, dont take anything i say as legal advice.

    I bought one used and I love it. I have tried several kinds of ammo and it never has a jam. I like it rite next to the bed and its fun to watch the kids shoot it also.

    I will have to weigh it..but it is pretty light and short so it balances nicely.

    Edit to add... with the red dot and bipod it weighs 7.6 pounds.

    Sick as in good, or sick as in UGH!

    Either way you look at it we kicked the British's butt with Ball& Cap. So I think this is a decent rifle for the price.

    i owned one for quite a while and i wont say i loved it because i dont own it anymore.

    the only real complaint i had about the weapon was there is no real slide lock. you have to kinda use the charging bolt as the slide lock and i hated that. i also hated the capacity of it. i had the 995 9mm version of this gun and it is a single stack 10 round mag. these two reasons were why i sold the gun.

    other than that it was very very reliable, i had 2 FTE i think in the whole tim i owned and shot it.it was cheap as dirt and fun to shoot.

    i also owned a hi point c9 handgun and would not suggest anyone buy one of those ever. for a cheap reliable carbine i do not know of a better one than the 995.

    now if money is no option get a kel tec carbine or a px4 storm. the storm is a very nice gun, plus has added capacity.

    I too own the Hi Point C9 pistol... the mags needed tweaking and the feedramp poished but once that was done it eats anything I throw at it... and I can hold 2 inch groups at 40 yards so I can't fault the guns accuracy.

    You know why they used the Hi-Point?

    Because they could get their hands on it. It was available. If the gun that was available was a Colt AR-15, would you be bringing it up? Or are you just using the antis favorite logic, blame the gun?

    It was a stolen firearm... luck of the draw.. I am sure if they would have found an AR they would have used it.
