Greetings,

I'm thinking the .40 carbine will be my next firearm purchase. I like the mid-range stopping power of the caliber, the brand's reliability/ customer service, and especially the price. I also like that the magazine is interchangeable with the HP .40 pistol for a future purchase. I want to go with the newer style with the skeleton stock and built in rails.

I have some questions:

First, I found the 4095TS new for 259.99. Is this a good price? Or can anyone direct me to a better deal?

I live in Illinois but have never purchased a gun online. Can anyone tell me what to expect as far as the process? We have two large (corporate-type) firearms dealers, Scheels and Gander Mountain, and one local mom and pop shop whose range I've used. I don't know which is better to use to complete the transaction.

And last, after scouring the board, I read that the aftermarket 15 round magazines might actually be reliable now. Is that true? If not has HP offered an extended mag, or announced any plans?

Thanks for any help!

Good price...but if it is online, you need an FFL that will accept the gun, and do the background/FOID checks for you....they usually charge for the service, between $10 and $50, depending on where and who they are.

The process involves you asking the FFL to fax his license to the online seller. You contact the seller, and tell them who your FFL is, when you order the gun and pay for it. They ship the gun to your FFL, who then does the checks, and collects his fees, and gives you the gun.

The other alternative is to find an HP dealer local to you, and ask them to order one, if they have none. Some places get them fast, some don't.

And of course, Gunbroker can also work, I have gotten some good deals that way.

New 15 round mags..mine work fine, but who knows for how long? They are the first generation of the HIP 3...newer ones have a better follower than mine, reportedly.

Does someone make 15 rounders for the 4095? I've only seen them for the 995.
And where have you found a 4095 in stock? I can only find 995's and 4595's.

:welcome: to HPT, Drew.

I think you'll be happy with your decision on the 4095TS. I've never done a gun deal online either, so no first hand experience there. I do know the seller will have to have a copy of your chosen dealer's FFL to ship the firearm. If you've got 2 big dealers close by you should be able to get it from one of them instead of online. Ideally, the small M&P store/range could get you one. Even if they wanted $300 it might be cheaper than the internet one after FFL fees and shipping.

I have ordered through Bud's. Here in NC the transfer fee is usually 20-25 dollars. Call and ask your LGS.

The aftermarket hi cap mags are made by promag, and they do not make them for the 4095. They only make them for the 995.

Its my understanding that Hi Point is considering larger cap mags for the carbines but at this time are busy tying to keep up with the demand for their weapons and the mags are on the back burner for a bit.

Ordering online is not a big deal, the internet has made the world such a smaller place. Like said above, find a local FFL to bring the gun in, and find, order and pay for it on the net . Simple as that.

BTW, welcome to the forum! I have a 4095 and am very happy with it.

That is a great deal like we said especially for Illinois I am surprised. They are selling them for as much as $350 now in other parts of the country. Do a forum search on "4095TS" and you'll find a slew of happy 4095TS owners.
