Hi-Point 995TS Carbines

Dayton, OH, –-( MKS Supply, Inc. Hi-Point Carbines, one of the best firearm bargains available in today’s market, debuts new models and calibers.

Incredibly affordable at only $249 to $299 depending on sighting system, Hi-Point Carbines are not to be underestimated just because they do NOT cost $800.00.

For a price under most .22LR rifles nowadays, the Hi-Point Carbine is a serious firearm and very affordable for most gun owners.

Hi-Points Carbines are a bit wild looking but then again check out the many multi-thousand dollar rifles and carbines in today’s market covered with so much Picatinny railing they feel like handful of razor blades, and, Hi-Points do have handy top-side and forearm bottom Picatinny rails, and that’s more than enough for a quick reaction carbine.

We digress, but that’s fun too….

Hi-Points come chambered in 9mm Luger and .40 S&W calibers. It is reasonable to expect to pick up an extra 100-250 feet per second of velocity and obviously more energy over handguns chambered in these loads from Hi-Point carbines thanks to the longer barrel compared to hndguns of the same caliber; especially if using +P loads.

Hi-Point Carbines are employed by police departments world-wide. Compact, light in weight, reliable, accurate and did we mention affordable, these handy robust carbines can sling lead with their same size but much more expensive counter-parts all day long.

The robust all weather black molded polymer skeletonized stock is both tough and light in weight. Additionally the forearm offers an excellent grabby surface regardless of time of year, conditions or whether the user is wearing gloves, mitts or is bare handed.

The simple blow back design reliably feeds ammunition from the compact single stack 10-round magazine which also fits the Hi-Point series of affordable same caliber semi-auto pistols. When the last round is fired the bolt locks to the rear for a rapid reload.

Model 995TS shown with optional $24.99 (MSRP) folding hand grip.

Love the .380 carbine. Fun gun to shoot.

Doc Holiday

I’m picking up one in .45 acp. Hard to believe that the company won’t make hi cap mags for those of us who live in enlightened states. Seems like they are leaving a lot of money on the table. They should also consider making a carbine without the evil pistol grip for those unfortunates who live in NY. This would seem to be a perfect home defense weapon and the current mags are legal there.

Well. Here we are. Six years after this article was written. You grammar and spelling nazis just relax. Anyway. I have had my 995 Dressed Bubba Gun for four years and have put close to 3000 rounds of BVAC FMJ and HP reloads. (Can’t get it from BVAC now with the political scares.) Not one FTL, FTF or FTE. Never a problem. I carried it as my weapon as armed security. When I go to the range with the 7mm rem mags and 7.62s the 995 is right along. Like mine. Might even look into the H-Point pistols and sell… Read more »

I own a 380 hi point hand gun and a 995ts 9mm carbine and both have never gave me any trouble. There accuracy is spot on. You would never know that they were inexspensive unless somebody told you.

I just got a 995TS 9mm and was very pleased in the way it handled and I think it's one of the best buys on the market. I also was suprised in how well it shoot, I haven't put it on paper yet but was hitting pop can size targets almost every time at 100 yards.

Just went shooting with my 9mm carbine, although I only shot a a short distance, 35+ feet, I took the center out of both target. Love the gun!


The .40 will have more stopping power, while the 9mm Luger will be cheaper. All depends on your needs.

kenny dudley

I was just in my towns new gun store big r. And i seen this eye catching carbine sitting by its slef. I ask the guy to get it down and when i felt the light weight i truned to my wife and said this is my new gun. Im just wondering should i get the 9mm or the 40 s&w?

Gil G.

I always thought the standard 995 was as uglier than a mud fence. I was in my favorite gun shop a couple of weeks ago looking at the Saiga 12, when this unusual-looking carbine caught my eye. I pulled it off the rack and just generally "groped" it, getting the heft, balance, etc. Worked the bolt, pulled the trigger and was impressed. It was the 995TS. The 10-round mag limit bothered me a bit (I like hi-cap mags, and just ordered 4 40-round mags for my AR, and have 33-round mags for my Glock 17 and CZ75D, plus a 50-round… Read more »


For anyone reading this, Pro-Mag is junk regardless of the gun model. They’re know for being some of the worst magazines available.

If you have a 995, check out Redball magazines. They’re supposedly good


the bolt on mine stays open 4 the next clip it should do the same for yours


I guess the new 40 don't come out til may 2010 and the 45 in aug 2010


Does the 40 cal have the new stock with the picatinny rails like the 995ts? the new stock looks so much better to me then the old ones.


Major I cannot agree with you more. I am from New Orleans and went through the beginnings of Katrina and got the heck out. I did bring ALL of my firearms and ammo and reloading equipment. People were telling me I should have only grabbed essentials. I told them I did! My wife is in the process of getting her CC license here in NC, and I am in the process of purchasing one of these great firearms from Hi-Point. Funny thing, my wife is from Hi-Point! Thats how I found these guns in the first place. I have not… Read more »

PLANET OF THE APES GUN In the 1968 Charlton Heston movie the Planet of the Apes the gorillas were the soldiers of the ape race. Do you remember the carbine they used? The one they kept trying to shoot Heston with. At one point in the movie Heston’s character stated that the apes were not sophisticated enough to develop and manufacture something as intricate as a rifle. The carbine the gorillas carried looked like a monkey slapped some wood around a metal barrel and called it a gun. In fact the Hollywood props people took old US military M1, 30… Read more »


I have not been able to find 30 round clips for the 995 Carbine however I do know that there are 15 round clips available for it through a local store here in Idaho. I have a few of them and they work extremely well. They do not have a web site but here is their information hopefully this well help some of you fellow shooters.

The hi point 995ts 9mm, I no it holds 10rounds. Do they make a 30round clip for this gun?

Shawn D

The early 995's did not lock open upon firing the last round. My friends 995 is like this.. My 4095 dose lock open upon firing the last round or installing an empty mag and cycling the slide. Hi Point might have incorporated this "hold open" on the new 995TS.

Bob H

My 955TS also locks open after the last round….Great little gun,Now i need to find a 40 cal,….More fun…..

dave B

My 955TS does hold open after the last shot. Just went thru 100 rounds over the weekend.

Neil Kauffman

One possible inaccuracy I noticed in the article – the Hi-Point carbine does NOT lock the bolt open after the last shot.

The bolt can be manually locked open for cleaning but it has no mechanism for catching/releasing on the last shot.

It must be manually cycled to start a new magazine.


Hi-Point DOES NOT make a 22 carbine or 22 pistol

The company who does the marketing for hi-point (MKS SUPPLY)is introducing a 1911-22 pistol. NOT MADE BY HI-POINT



Thanks for pointing out that mistake. Let us know if you see any more. –


Hi Point does not make a .22lr

They make pistols in .380, 9mm, .40 and .45. They make rifles in 9mm, .40 and someday they will release their .45 carbine.
