    If you had to choose between the Hi-Point 995 Carbine w/ATI stock and the Beretta CX4 Storm in 9mm, which would you pick? Imagine yourself legitimately shopping for a 9mm carbine when you vote in the poll. Thanks.

    It depends on if you want a cheaper carbine or not I've owned and shot a hi-point but never touched the beretta. My Hi-point was 100% reliable but then again I didn't shoot it much and didn't like that I could only get 10 rd mags for it. I'd imagine the beretta would be much better quality but I'd think a Kel-Tec sub2000 would be a great choice to look at it accepts glock magazines and can fold down to a really compact size for storage or concealment in a duffel bag,etc...

    Where do you find the Beretta? I've been looking all over. The Hi Points are everywhere, but I can't find any Berettas so I don't even know what the going price is. This is true for online and in stores.

    I voted for the Beretta but it is because I find the HP ugly. I have handled both and they are both built tough enough. But, if I am spending your money, definatly Beretta.

    I had a Hi-Point 995. Stone cold reliable but a bitch to break it down and clean so I stopped doing it but the carbine kept running anyway. Hi-Point carbines are reliable and reasonably accurate.

    That said I got bored with it, sold it and spent 1,400 for a 9mm AR, Bushnell Red Dot and a bunch of Sten mags. :uhoh:


    Kinda miss the Hi-Point. I used to call it my Ugly-Stick. :)

    Voted for the Beretta but I actually bought the hi point and put it in an ATI stock and got a CX4 clone for $250. I like the CX4 Storm but it is a bit pricey for a pistol caliber carbine. If money was no option take the Beretta but just for fun on a budget get the Hi Point. Just don't try to justify it besides it is fun.

    Bad poll.
    Anyone with $600+ to spend would be a fool not to get the Beretta. All the rest of us would get the Hi-Point. I don't believe it's really an issue of choice...just practicality.

    The problem with that analogy is that the Beretta really does not out perform the Hi Point unless you count the higher capacity mag. Otherwise then there is nothing that the Beretta does that the Hi Point cannot do just as well.

    Exactly. My old Hi-Point also did the same thing as my new 1,400 dollar 9mm-AR setup, only the Hi-Point was lighter and handled better. :banghead:





    And I would never disgrace a 995 carbine by putting one of those ATI stocks on it. :p

    Honestly though the plastic that the Hi Point stock is made out of is ridiculous. You can feel it "give" just by squeezing it in your hand. And the trigger guard was made from the same stuff, very flexible. Plastic stocks can be cheap and flexible but Hi Point really went above and beyond with that stock. Like someone else said before they really went out of their way to make a bad looking (and feeling) rifle. But that said it works well enough. In the ATI stock the 995 is like the Beretta CX4's white trash cousin. Almost as good looking, a little rough around the edges but always good for a fun cheap time.

    Just kiddin around, sort of...

    To me, part of the charm of the 995 was that ugly barracuda look of the stock. Plus the fact it mounts and handles really well. It is ergonomic as all get-out. :)

    I have the Hi-point 995, always wanted the Beretta but I resemble this remark" Almost as good looking, a little rough around the edges but always good for a fun cheap time. ";):)

    The 995 remains in it's stock conditon because it shoots and handles way to well as is!

    But if I had your money I would buy the Beretta:)

    Had my Hi Point with intention to put on ATI stock. It is 100% reliable but it is only as accurate as my most accurate pistols and it is made of cheap materials and looks cheap. Sold it and never look back.

    Neither.
    Kel-Tec sub-2000 9mm. I want something that can fit in a 16" pizza box.

    That is a worthy consideration.

    I'm after one that takes Beretta 92 mags.

    I agree completely. As funny as that rifle looked, it mounted and fit me perfectly. It is a very handy little carbine.

    I see another one in my future if they don't ban it first.

    Beretta

    Mine is deadly accurate in 40S&W, and I also have a 90-Two to go along with it. The magazines are inter changeable just like what you are looking for. Even the 20 round magazines I got for the cx4 works in the 90-Two with no issues.

    Since you are looking now it is hard for me to say. I purchased my cx4 brand new for $459 when they first came out. How in the heck are they $779 right now? :what:

    The CX4 does have a ton of accessories as well.

    I guess the CX4 still gets my vote.
