I can change most anything that does not require sawing or grinding anything to fit?

Default 9mm Hipoint

I used to have a 9mm Hi-Point carbine and I liked it just fine, except the single stack magazine and could not find a folding stock for it.

There are reliable 20 round single stack mags now called Redball mags, and if you want a folding stock for a Hipoint, you have to make it yourself, there are several people who have done it and most of them look pretty good.

Maybe with Trump in office, MoM can catch up on all their back orders and do some research & development on a few more guns?

The pistols are probably okay too, but I wouldnt want to be seen with one. The carbine is a good piece, expecially for the price.

BTW, mine was a 9mm

They make them in 40 too and I think maybe 45. Although if they dont make a 45, it would be a big seller if they made it take 1911 mags!
I've got a .45. Ugly, heavy, reliable. They'll accept 1911 mags with a little tweaking. The 1911 mag shortens the gun up about 5/8" but it is still about as concealable as a 10 ga. Marlin Long Tom.

The carbines are a great truck gun you dont have to give a crap about.

Just to show all the naysayers about Hipoints warranty being the REAL DEAL. A new member (thatglockguy was his username, so you can imagine he was not a Hipoint fan) to the hipoint forum posted up a 9mm carbine he had an opportunity to buy for $30, it was missing about 50% of the parts and the stock was cut and modified. He was told to run and buy it, he did, mailed it into Hipoint and in 19 days they sent him back a fully refurbished 995 like new. Here is the thread.

If you can send your pic to your email, you can log on to your computer, open your email, you can copy & paste them or save them to your hard drive?
NO cord needed?

In fact, the factory doesn't have records to verify most of their model releases. I hope to some day figure out how to post pictures on this forum. I have tried to join a few other forums, but was unable to post pics. I will follow this page for a while to see if there is any activity. I have visited several of the HP plants & have gained considerable knowledge from MoM.
Found the Photo Button!

I have the .45 Carbine with over 2,000 rnds through it with NO Issues. Bit of a beast to completely disassemble and clean but it`s Totally Accurate and goes "BANG" everytime.What else could you ask for???.

When you compare the cost of other Pistol Caliber Carbines, you can buy the Carbine, the pistol, a few extra mags & 500rds of ammo, for the same price!

You know what, for all the trash talkers, snobs and bull**** artists here, I am buying a Hipoint 995. After that a C9. Mind you I will still buy a Glock and build myself 2 ARs. But just to **** people off I am buying Hi Point guns FIRST. I am giving them a chance because I have had ARs, Rugers, Taurus, Springfield, etc choke and break regardless of what you do to them.

Don't like Hi Point? Fine. **** off and let the people that like them converse amongst themselves. Instead of information in this thread, there is nothing but tallywhacker measuring going on by the naysayers.

So, thank you, You made my decision easier.

Pretty cool, not the first example that I have seen. I do agree with the article that a C9 comp was probably used as they have an extended barrel. I own a C9 comp, really sweet shooter.

Hey Panz,
You know HP discontinued the C9 Comp in 2006. I found a Strassell C9 Comp the other day. It must have been returned to MoM for repairs & the slide was replaced. A rarity all the same? It will look good with my other 6 HP Comp's! Yep it is on it's way to me now!
