Sorry, should be 995, not 955.

Are these two the same gun, just different look? Both are 9mm and feed the magazine through the pistol grip. The fundamental design is just too similar. 995 is selling for $289. CX4 is close to $900. Can Anyone confirm this?

Thanks,

SIG

My friend just recently got a Hi point, it shoots great. The fit and finish is a little rough but for the price you can't complain. It also has a lifetime warranty
I haven't shot the Beretta so can't compare. the huge price difference though makes me think it can't be worth it.

Hmm similar for sure, but I am not sure about same. I have had the chance to shoot the cx4 and have always wanted one. I am not so quick to call the Hi-point an equal but then I have not shot it. Seems like a good deal though.

They are no more the same, than an Uzi is to a Mac-10.

The CX4 will have top of the line fit and finish..its a factory beretta. http://www.cx4storm.com/

The aftermarket conversion of the Hi-point is simply that...an aftermarket put together. Fit and finish will depend on your attention to detail and skill.

The 995 http://www.hi-pointfirearms.com/ is a good shooter. lifetime warranty for the original owner. not sure what is covered after you convert it with http://www.cheaperthandirt.com/MCB010-1.html I would check. it could void everything

For me the value is in the 995. I can modify it, goof with it and even bust it and I am out $300.
Both will shoot the same within reason.


EDIT---- I just found out you can modify a CX4 to accept old AF92 magazines...which came in 30rd form... is this worth the extra $900??? (cost of weapom+cost of magazine conversion parts+ the model 92 magazines)

I heard that when you buy high point they send you a free case of grape drank.

I had to look it up. I am not hip and cool. I am just an old guy who shoots guns.

I understand you are impling Hi-Points are used by criminal street gangs, you are correct. They will use any firearm they can get ahold of. Glocks .45s Jennings Raven whatever.

If you are impling Hi-Points are cheap firearms like "grape drank" is a cheap drug...well ya Captian Obvious thats why you buy them....

I Wish!!!.... No they are too short overall (easy to fix) and would need a fixed mag (thumb hole stock = evil feature). I want one and always have though.

Actually I made mine CA legal before moving here, made a thread about it back in Dec/ Jan. about it. I filled in the thumbhole portion with devcon steel and added a spacer to the buttstock to bring up the overall length, very simple to do.

this is the hi point

you can get a new stock for the hi point that makes it look like this

do they look the same? yeah, pretty much. But like you said, the Baretta costs about 5x as much. I've heard lots of good things about the hi point as far as reliability and accuracy. I've got the hi point C9 pistol and i love it. I would say go with the hi point and if you really hate it, you can sell it for what you paid for it and save up for the baretta. I'm sure you'd hate to get a baretta and find out later you would have enjoyed the hi point just as much for way less money.......hell, if you like the hi point you can buy 4 more for the price of 1 CX4!!!!!
