Hi-Point model 995 carbine is one of the least expensive pistol carbines produced in USA. Still, it is sufficiently reliable for purposes of training,plinking and self-defense, and can be fired with reasonable accuracy out to 100-150 meters, especially if optical or red-dot sight is used. Its appearance in standard configuration is somewhat ungainly, but it can be improved with after-market polymer stock manufactured by ATI in USA.
Hi-Point model 995 carbine is blowback-operated weapon which fires from closed bolt. Receiver is made from aluminum alloy, with stock (pistol grip, butt and forearm) being made from polymer. Bolt is of wrap-around type, with most of its weight being placed around the breech of the barrel. Cocking handle is located on the left side of the gun, ejection is to the right side only. There is no bolt hold-open device, but bolt can be manually locked back by pushing the cocking handle inwards once it is pulled all the way to the rear. Manual safety is located on the left side of the gun, above the grip. Magazines are inserted into pistol grip; only proprietary Hi-Point magazines (compatible with Hi-Pointpistols in respective calibers) can be used. Magazine release button is located at the base of the trigger guard. Standard sights are of open type, adjustable for range and windage. Optional Picatinny rail can be installed instead of the rear sight base; this will accept any compatible sighting device (a red-dot sight is a preferred type for pistol-caliber carbines).
