    Anybody have one of these? I have had the 9mm but not the 45, how about red dot sight or is a laser better? Do they shoot the 45 hollow point rounds fine? Thanks

    My only real experience is with the 9mm and .40. I have fired the .45, but only one magazine through a friends carbine and it was FMJ. Hi-Point carbines are the best value in firearms. I would have to believe that the .45 is just as good as the others. Kip.

    Hi SR1911FAN,

    I have two of the 995 Carbine and a friend of mine has one. I think that the 9mm and .45 cal. are the same working kind of gun. I think laser is OK and so is the Red Dot as I have fired both. But think the Sights that come on gun are just find. Have only fired FMJ in them. I love them.
    Would like to see the .45 cal. too, if you come down to Portland, Oregon shoot me an Email at netcarrier@yahoo.com

    You can look at the Laser sight I own and maybe the Red Dot my friend own.
    Hope this helps, Tony Portland, Oregon Area

    I tried hard to talk myself into a 4595 but just couldn't get past the sheer fugliness of it. And the 9-round mag? a disappointment. But at least the Hi-Point 4595 has a reputation for feeding reliably, unlike the Just Right Carbine in .45.

    So I bought a Mech Tech upper for my Glock 21, which gets me the capacity, the interchangeability, and the hard points for anything I'd like to hang off of it.
    I can even put the Kriss 30-rounder in it!

    But the real goal involves threading it for a can... I'll get back to you in October.
