Does anyone here own one? Pros and Cons? I'd like to add a pistol caliber rifle to my handgun collection. Turners is having a sale on it now for $319.

I've been wanting to get a 995 as well but it's on hold till my never ending project AR is done:)
Just can't seem to find them at gun shops in the Bay Area.

I've had mine for several years. Always goes bang and is surprisingly accurate.
Fun and cheap to shoot, happy with any ammo from cheap steel case to cast reloads.

GFOS in Vacaville has them in stock as of last week. I know not quite bay area but close. I cant remember the price though.

Thanks for the heads up. I know they don't quote prices over the phone and
their prices are relatively high compared to my LGS but I'll drop by when I'm in that area.

Try calling Alquist Arms in Turlock, Ca. I know its a few hours away, but if you want it bad then maybe they can do something. Ive seen them on the shelves there.

Here is their site:

I can see how folks call the non ts version ugly but the 995 ts is far from ugly......

My husband bought me one for my birthday this year (I think it was really for him). It is fun to shoot. I am more enamored with my handguns right now but I hope to shoot it more.

I have lots of guns that someone may think are ugly.
Who cares?

I've got a 4095 (pre-TS). Fun, reliable, ugly. The only thing I don't like is the d@#$ bullet button. PITA.

If you want to try it, I'm going to be in OC tomorrow, and I can take it with me. My only complaint (aside from the BB) is the trigger, I wish it had a nicer trigger. Other than that, it's reliable and accurate to about 75-80 yds (haven't tried shooting it past that). It's more accurate than my Marlin Camp 9 or Suomi KP-31 at about half the cost.

I noticed the hi point 40 carbine was on sale this week also. I may have to go get one.

Oh, and check out the ATI stock for it. It's on my project list, hopefully I'll install it in the next couple of weeks.

I have had one for years. Shoots the high steel out past 140 yards at West End Gun Club with my hand loads. Trigger sucks . But you get used to it.
Most fun for the dollar you can have. Cheap to shoot. Very accurate.

Buy extra mags. I load 5 mags at a time and take my time having fun.
You will NOT be unhappy with your purchase.

I purchased the one on sale for $319 at Turners in Orange, in the waiting period, everything on the net seems pretty positive, mine is 9mm, cheap ammo and still fairly accurate. Good and solid, great warranty for life.

I've had a 4595 since last winter. It does go bang every time, no doubt. And because of that and the fact that it's a short rifle shooting pistol rounds I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to someone who needs a HD weapon on a budget. The fact that it has a lot of options like lasers and lights doesn't hurt.
Mine is just a range toy.

I've been trying to work up an accuracy load for it with limited success. My only complaint is the trigger. It would be O.K. if it was just creepy or stiff, but mine does not have the same feel from shot to shot. But for what it cost I can't complain. (mine was $260 off GB about 7 months ago). If I had it to do over I'd probably go with the 9mm. Ammo for the 9mm can be had for $10/50 my .45acp reloads cost about that.
