I've never owned any Hi-Point firearms over the years but have only ever heard good things from the ones that have had them. The words I hear most often associated with them are inexpensive, reliable and fun. After watching several Youtube videos recently on their carbines in various calibers, I decided to take the plunge and pick up a 4595 today at my favorite gun store. Upon inspection they do seem to be rugged and well built and it's hard to beat the price point that they're offered at. After bringing it home, I loaded the magazine that came with it and ran a few rounds of .45 acp ball through it with no issues. One thing I've heard some mention is the poor trigger and while it's not the greatest and doesn't break like ice, it still wasn't bad IMO and I've dealt with worse. For almost $330 out the door, I didn't think I did too badly. The one in the picture isn't mine but near identical.

To note, there was a guy standing next to me as we were both checking out and he noticed the 4595 on the counter. He was purchasing a CZ SP-01 and commented that he loves the Hi-Point carbines and has always had a lot of fun shooting them with his family.

I have had a 995 TS for years. Love it!!! I had 1 issue with it a few years back, sent it in to Mom, 18 days later it was returned to me in New condition "NO CHARGE" with an extra mag. I bought it used.. I have put close to 3500 rounds through it since getting it back, not so much as a hickup. An excellent firearm with great CS!!

What with all the "BAN THE EBRs" stuff going around again, probably a good thing to get one now if you've ever wanted one. It has a pistol grip and stick mag. What might save it is the lack of a bayonet lug. :rolleyes:

I think they have a very industrial and purposeful look to them. I like it too!

YEP! A good Warranty/CS/QC department will earn you a loyal customer base. Since my 1st Hi-Point I own their: (1)4595TS, (1)4095TS, (1) 995TS, (4) JHP pistols (1) JCP pistol and (1) C9 pistol.

All tough as nails and extremely accurate.

When we talk about customer service here's a good example of how you do it right:

I had a old JS9 (still do), I cracked the frame (dropped it during a move while in moving box) this was a cast metal frame not polymer. I called them up told them the issue and they said send it in and all my mags too. I did. Two weeks later I get back a completely rebuilt JS9 and all my mags replaced with new ones plus a additional mag (6 total). Mind you this pistol had been out of production for 20+ years.

I was so happy I called their CS line and asked to speak a supervisor. I didn't tell them why, and was told I'd get a call back before the end of the day. I couple of hours later I did. I asked the man on the phone if he was a supervisor? He said "Well I guess so, I own the company, my name is Tom Deeb how can I help you?"

I told him that I was just calling to express how happy I was with the service I received and that they have earned themselves a lifetime customer. I could hear the smile in Tom's voice as he told me he got those kind of calls often and how much he appreciates them and how much he values his customers and he thanked me for taking time out of my busy day to contact him.

Now that's customer service!

Tom has since passed away. But his company is in good hands with Mr. Strassle it seems and continues to provide outstanding service to their customers.

The Hi Point PCC's are really just fun and effective guns that do the job and do it well...not a huge fan of how difficult they are to disassemble, but seeing as how they only need cleaning every 5000 rounds or so, it's a small price to pay....


:eek: :p

Welcome to the Hi point carbine club. I love my 995ts. The only down side is I don't get to strip it to clean it for about another 200 rounds. That's right I am up to 1300 rounds with only failures due to magazine spring and followers not getting that first round ready at the correct angle. I have learned to not load the chamber by using the slide stop, just push the full mag in while the bolt is closed then run the bolt. Hi point says not to strip and clean until it reaches 1500 rounds. I do clean the barrel and wipe down the bolt face and receiver. but that is it. Accuracy is outstanding. Here is mine in its current config:

Not a big fan of Hi-Point handguns but the 995TS does intrigue me. I like the Ruger PC Carbine also but at +/- $500 smackers or so, the 995TS at less than $300 OTD looks pretty darn tempting. Beside, I kinda' dig the funkitactical look.

I have the 9mm and have had it over a year now and only shot it about 5 times, but really like it. Unlike my AR, the still stiff trigger doesn't affect my accuracy nearly as much. Hopefully, both will smooth out with some more rounds fired through it.

They are a lot of fun. I would like to see them make them in a double stack magazine for larger capacity, my only complaint.

If I cared anything about owning a PCC other than my .357 magnum which turns into a rifle in a long barrel, I'd consider even a Hi Point zamak wonder. But, I don't. Anything I can do with a PCC, I can do with my handguns. You don't pick up much for the long barrel in velocity and I can hit a man sized target every shot off hand at 50 yards with a pistol that's any good, and at defense ranges a pistol is faster. If I "need" a long gun for defense, I have the M4 and 11 30 round magazines for it and it's almost as cheap to feed even as a 9mm carbine, cheaper than a .45.

So, for me, if you think a PCC is a fun gun, that's reason enough. :D Or, you may not be that good with a pistol. I can understand that, takes training and practice.

Well, as to the trigger, there are aftermarket solutions for the AR, not so much for the Hi Point. Personally, I don't have a problem with my stock M4 trigger, though it's heavy. I can handle heavy (to a point) so long as it's crisp. Now, I have to shoot my SKS carbine like a DA trigger it has so much danged creep. Talk about your awful triggers! I know there's an aftermarket fix for it, but I don't shoot that thing much, prefer my SKS rifle and it, for some reason, came with a decent crisp trigger, go figure. :lol:

I might spend money on an aftermarket AR trigger, but then again, probably not. :D
