    I scoped my 995 and hit a squirrel in the next state!

    :) Seriously I live on the NC /VA border and it might have been a +/- 50 yd shot.

    Neat rifle. Replaced it with an even neater Ruger PC 9 carbine, a real tack driver.

    I haven't shot mine past 60 yards. It was ok. If I had a, scope on it I would be more accurate. It just had a red dot. When I was younger and had better eyes, I had a 995 and I was deadly accurate with the irons on it. Everybody that shoots mine wants to buy one.

    Most of my target shooting with my 995 carbine is betwen 75 and 100 yards. It is reasonably accurate (around 4-5 MOA) with the red dot scope I have on it. I have never had an extraction or chambering problem with the rifle. I wish the magazine had a larger capacity.

    Shot mine for the first time today. I liked it a lot! My brother, his fiance, his 7yo, and my 10yo all liked it as well. I spent a lot of my shooting time refilling mags for the younguns. 80 rounds without a hiccup. :D

    I'm going to keep an eye out for another.

    Mines gone 1400+ rounds in the past year (4595) with one FTF. I've been testing loads for it. I can't consider mine accurate, best I've done so far is 1-1/2-2 inches at 25 yards.. Reliable yes, accurate no. I do recommend it to anyone who needs an inexpensive HD weapon.

    My daughter really like it.


    What's everyone using for sights. I have a scope on it now while I'm load testing, but I'm tempted to go with a red dot later.

    4095ts. and matching 40 JCP. Best shot (Ts) is a Doe 80 yards out through heavy brush. However I broke my firing pin once, at round 1000 something w/o cleaning ( I know;the point was to stress it). I had the part and back in action in less than 4 days. I truly think High Point is an under rated firearm. I think this summer I will be doing a paint job on them. I just don't know what yet either camo or bling. And I am working on a custom built flash-suppressor.

    Yes I called about if using a particular solvent was safe to use. Got transferred to the head engineer. We BS' d for awhile after he assured me I was good to go AND sent me a mag free. Good people.

    I have had a 4095 for about 1 month, only a few hiccups and that was with my cast bullet reloads. I sighted it in at 50 yards and a session afterwards was shooting another rifle at 100 yds so I put up a IPSC target and figured if I aimed for the head it would drop into center mass, but I was wrong, I head shot it 4 of 10 times free hand not on bench with open sights and the misses were high or left/right. I then proceeded to dump a few mags center mass and was amazed. I was a sceptic, but now a satisfied one. Was looking for a Kel-Tec sub 2000, but not anymore!! Plus the best part is it is made in the U.S.A.

    I enjoy mine thoroughly. Got a cheapo red dot on it. It does surprisingly well at 50 yards with FMJs. I'm tempted to start reloading for it...

    I have the 995 and the one and only one issue that that does not really becomes any real issue is the mags will be a little difficult in removing. I recently bought a 15 rd mag for it and have not tried it out yet but doubt seriously any problems will come from it. I bought mine at a pawn shop when the owner was complaining about buying it. I offered him $100 dollars and he said he would take $125.00. I took it and have been looking for another since.

    Mine has about 1000 rounds through it and no FTF/FTE or any other issues with it. I had a Bushnell 1.5-4.5x32 Banner on it but it was not terribly accurate so I switched to a red dot I tried on a pistol and didn't like and it works good. Certainly good enough for HD and milk jugs.

    995 w/ Bushnell banner 1.5-4.5x32mm, weaver rings. With Winchester Pdx 124gr +p, took a coyote at 60 yards. Shoots 3 MOA. Not bad for a boat anchor, and one I wouldn't trade for a Sub2k or Chinese tea.:)
