Glad to be part of the HiPoint Talk!! From the Smoky Mtn area of North Carolina. Will be picking up a 995 Classic Saturday. I have tried to purchase a new-style 995TS with no results...might-as-well be trying to hitch a ride to the moon!!! But found a slightly-used old-style 995, so it has my name on it!!! Any advice on the carbine from the old-hands would be greatly appreciated.

Well Marine :welcome: from Iowaaah!

We'll expect you fall in for muster everyday at whatever time you choose, wear what you want and byob. Or basically do what you want when you want to do it...Understand? I know those are tough rules to follow but we expect the ...well...something out of everyone at least once in while and sometimes more often. :whistle: :funny: Who am I kidding.... :dunno:

Good choice, mine's the old style too. You're not at a disadvantage.

If you find ammo at a fair price -- grab it. Welcome aboard marine.

Welcome to the forum Mike. Lots of good people here with a good amount of ex military. I put a fair amount of time in the Army myself.

Not much to tell you as far as the 995, they are very dependable weapons. Shoot it and enjoy :)

Thanks for the welcomes....and the advice on the last round and then cycle. Will let you all know how it shoots when I pick it up tomorrow. I'm not to adept at these computer things, so if I can figure out how to upload (?) a picture, I will. If not, I will have the better-half do it!!!! Take care and GOD bless. Regards Semper-fi MIke

Pictures are sorta easy : find a site called photobucket.com start a free account, make sure the picture is on your computer where you can find it easy (like on the desktop or in a file you know how to get to easily), at the top of photobucket you'll see a button (upload) click on it, you can have the file holding your picture open in a reduced size and simply drag it to the box that displays on PB or you can browse to find it. Then you'll likely need to resize it because the forum won't display anything larger than 600 pixels in either direction. This can be done in two ways that I'm aware of, it depends on how the current picture is displayed. However it's displayed up above it there is a set of three icons to the left of an options button, click on the center icon, it'll say edit when moused over. Now you are in the image editor. At this point I don't know which version you'll have, I have the beta version which just changed this week. Regardless find the icon or button that shows resize. Enter 600 into the biggest size displayed whether height or width. Hit apply and replace original so things don't get out of hand and when the new picture is displayed to the right there is a box with img code, left click on the code and it'll drop the url into you notepad which is pasted into the forum by itself with no additional tags. It will already have the img tags attached.

Good luck!


Now about your sig line...make it permanent by going up to user control panel up top, clicking on profile at the left then edit signature, and type in it in the text box, that's it.

Picked up the 995 yesterday during a bad snow storm!!! Yep...traveled over Franklin Mtn. and a 1 hr. trip took 3 hours. What'll we do for a weapon!!!!! Got to the Pawn Shop and fondled the 995. Well, after being told it was in "great shape".....I guess my "great shape" and theirs are two totally different things....I almost backed out of the deal. The front-sight ring was broke, the rear sight was missing and it was in "rough" shape. My wife says..."you ain't really gonna buy that, are you"??? I saw a diamond in the rough. The bore look good and all the other "stuff" was cosmetic. I paid the guy $229.00 and left. I will need to give this "DITR" (diamond in the rough) a good thorough cleaning, and will have to find some replacement parts. I will give it a cleaning then see how it shoots. Then to begin a parts search. The place where I work will send the receiver-cover and barrel shroud out to be plated. Maybe that will cheer me up a bit!!!! Anyways, will keep you all posted as how we progress. Semper-fi Mike

Amp is spot on, send it to Hi Point, and they will fix and replace anything that the carbine needs for FREE! All it costs you is the cost to send it in to them, and they usually send you a complementary mag to help offset the cost of shipping.

You will have a carbine in like new condition when they are done with it.
