    purely speculation at this point, but i was browsing the hi-point website and found this http://www.hi-pointfirearms.com/40_carbine.asp it gives a price list for the parts, now look at the compensator at the bottom.
    either its a web designer screwing with us or somebody at the hi-point plant picked up on our begs and pleads. this and the spiffy new stock they are releasing make to be an interesting change of events.

    email from the company says the 45 carbine is in prototype stage, they only have about 10 and will be released around Christmas 08- Spring 09

    only thing hi-point would do for me is serve as a drop-weapon. or if you only have a few bucks and ABSOLUTELY need to rob a bank, thats the way to go. even a zombie would laugh at that. well, i recant that statement. ive handled several and shot a few and never felt safe with the weapon as a whole.

    I love hi point carbines. They are great, affordable guns for people who don't want to spend 500+ dollars on other pistol caliber carbines.

    It may look hideous, but actually shoulders well for me. That being said, I still don't own one.

    This is good news, as I'd be very interested in one. I'd want to handle it first, since I didn't care for the 9mm carbine, but hopefully the 45 will be improved. And guns are meant for chuckin' lead, not for lookin' pretty.

    I have shot the 9mm carbine and it is a pretty fun little plinker. The .45 would be very interesting. I'm thinking about the 40 though, partly I have over 400 rounds of 40 sitting here and no 40 to shoot it with.

    They are like the glock of rifles. Somewhat unergonomic and ugly as sin but go bang every time.

    The 4595 prototype isn't bad looking. The rumor is that this is the gun that the carbine shop supervisor Jim Carroll is holding here. Notice that the reciever cover is longer on the top than the 40 and 9mm.

    It uses the mags from Hi Points .45 pistol.

    I love how people will give their positions, but never give their positions any sort of substance.

    do you have any support.

    have you ever owned a Hi point. or known some one who has? have they had problems, and if so have they contacted hi point? has hi point been given the chance to make it right?

    you can play the gun snob all you want
    but hi point offers the best warenty, and a damn goodand reliable product. best of american made, if not in the world. all for under 200$

    To answer you question Hoppy590, no. Simply no.

    People who sit there and turn their noses skyward towards the hi-points for the most part draw their ideas from the internet and simple scuttlebutt. Oh well, their money right?

    Lifetime warranty's are commonplace with many, many consumer products, both high and low quality. Certainly not unique to Hi-point, and not indicative of quality in any way.

    I don't dispute the carbine's reliability, though I've witnessed too many breakages with the pistols for me to consider them anything other than an ugly plinker.

    But to call them the "best of american made, if not in the world" is just plain silly and goes to the opposite extreme of the people you are calling gun snobs.

    Hipoint's are what they are. I won't call them less, but I certainly can't see putting them on par with top notch guns from reputable manufacturers.

    Hoppy590, I couldn't recommend a Hi-Point carbine to anyone in good conscience. I have a 995 that I picked up used and it has a extraction problem every 20 rounds or so. Maybe you're better off buying one new because the klinkers are the ones getting resold. Does anyone know if Hi-Point will still do warranty work if the stock's been replaced? Sure the warranty is great, but it's still a pain in the ass to send it out.

    After reading your post, you're now complaining that you have to send the gun out to get it fixed. Well, of course you do - Kimber, S&W, Glock, Kel-Tec, they all require the same thing. Hi-Point WILL work on guns with aftermarket stocks, as far as I know - they did on my 995.

    the only problem i had with mine was the first few times i shot it the bolt wouldnt fully shut, and only by about 1/16th of an inch, just enough for me not to be able to pull the trigger. after 10k rounds of winchester bulk ammo, it goes bang every time, with a red dot, i can get MOS (minute of squirrel) accuracy at about 35 yards. since they are into making carbines, I'd be interested in a box fed 12ga model with interchangeable barrel, say an 18" smoothbore and a rifled slug barrel. would fit HD role nicely and you could use it as a brush gun for hunting deer and whatnot.

    I have a friend who lives a couple states away. he shoots a hi-point with the ati stock and loves it. cheap and reliable and much less fugly with the stock. (still under 300 with the aftermarket stock when he did it)

    They may never win any beauty contests but they go bang every time, are cheap and shoot straight enough from what I have heard.

    Too bad the 4595 won't accept 1911 mags. Then it would be a sure thing purchase for me. Instead, I'll have to take a wait and see attitude.

    I have a buddy who had a HiPoint in .40 and a Beretta Storm CX4 in .40.

    He now only has the HiPoint. He sold the Beretta. He liked it, but not enough to hold onto it when he liked the HiPoint just as much, and for less than HALF the price. Heck, he could throw an ATI stock on the HiPoint, and have a Beretta clone for half the price, and with a lifetime warranty. He's not going to bother, though. The HiPoint is his "trunk gun." He never cleans it, it goes bang every time he pulls the trigger... and if it doesn't, HiPoint will fix it for free.

    I think it's ugly as sin... but I'll be picking one up after I decide what caliber handgun I'm buying this summer. If I get a .40, I'll pick up a HiPoint in .40.... if I get a .45, I'll wait til they release it in .45, so I can use the same ammo.

    The only thing I liked better about his Storm was that it could be switched to lefty... which I shoot. But I don't have any problems with either gun in right-hand mode.

    I just purchased a Hi-Point 995. I'm having fun with it, but every time I shoot, the second round in the magazine fails to feed correctly. I clear it, and the rest of the magazine feeds fine.

    Other than that, it's a lot of fun, and cheap to shoot with white box Winchester. If I can get the feeding issues worked out, I'll keep it and put an ATI stock on. Otherwise it'll go the way of my Mini-14, which also never fed right.
