Turners sells a lot of them, I think for $329.00 plus they usually have the .45 ACP and 9mm models to choose from. If you are cheap, get the 9mm but if you want a bit more punch and or shoot a 1911, a .45 ACP would be more fun.

I have shot one once, not the best trigger but great carbine for the money. You can dress them up too to look more EBR-like.

Got mine from Parallax. Good, accurate, American made budget carbine. Check out nutnfancy's run and gun with it on YouTube.

i was very impressed with how well they function and feel for that low of a price, i dont think you can go wrong or would ever regret buying one.

Thank you all for the info.:Ivan: I will try to get, but brings up another question: how do I get it BB'd?(what eaxctly is done?) Will FFLs do and what would be the cost? I am in CA (a Place of "10 shot Only" gunlaws)

if you buy it at a shop in CA most likely it will all ready have the BB installed

if u buy off the shelf at your local ffl, like turners, they already have a BB in place for a traditional mag release...if it were me tho, i'd go featureless (via kydex wrap) and go nuts, would also match my c9 pistol :D

It'll come with a bullet button and a tool for it that also has blades to adjust the front and rear sights.

I don't have any experience ith any Hi Point products but I do remember a magazine article about the 9mm pistol and it said some very good things about it. Although it's clunky and hard to take apart it functioned reliable in every way and so in your case I'd assume the rifles would be pretty good too.

If I was on a budget they would most definitely make excellent survival rifles/pistols to keep with you just in case since this is the 2012 year! I'd get the 9mm versions in both rifle and pistol.

Good luck on your final decision

Another Calgunner "Morphius" I think his name is has one and has brought it out to our monthly shoots in the past. I'd check with him for a true taie.

Ya i thought about one of these for awhile. I never knew about the featureless model version. Who offers models of these? Well if you get one OP enjoy it because I have heard a lot of good reviews! Have fun brotha

Ya dude if you are gonna buy it in Cali it will already have a magazine lock of some sort on it.

I have the 45 version. Trigger has a LOOOOOOONNGGGGGG ARSE pull to it. It runs on pretty much anything. The bolt is basically a huge chunk of steel.
Disassembly is a PITA and it takes a few times to get proficient at it. When you do it the first time, don't hold the rifle upside-down bc the slide weight and sear like to fall out.
Overall I am happy with it and was thinking of getting the 9mm carbine for cheaper plinking.

Check the Calguns market place first. There is always someone selling the Hi-Point Carbine, most of them are 9mm models. You won't regret it.

As far as I know your other choices of 9mm rifle are the Marlin Model 9, Ruger PC-9, 9mm AR and a MP5 clone. The first two are discontinued, you can find them online but they'll cost you $600-$800 bucks buy the time you bring it home. The 9mm AR and MP5 clones will cost you over $1000....if you can even find a good MP5 close that is :D
