As one of the top sellers of firearms in the United States each year, Hi-Point has earned a reputation among the budget-conscious crowd. For this week’s NRA Gun of the Week, we feature the Hi-Point Carbine 4595TS, a blowback-operated carbine chambered in .45 ACP. Also available in .380 ACP, 9 mm Luger and .40 S&W, the Hi-Point Carbine is a sure head turner at the range. Available in a basic no-frills model to one that is fully tricked out with red-dot sight, laser, compensator and more, the .45 ACP variant comes standard with a 9-round detachable magazine that fits covertly within the pistol grip. Additional extended magazines are available. Hi-Point answers to its consumers with a wide variety of accessories, most of which are included on our test model. One of the handiest features is the addition of a magazine cloupler on the buttstock that grasps two spare magazines. At the high end of the pricing scale, a 4595TS loaded with all these accessories can be purchased for a little more than $480 and for more information, visit hi-pointfirearms.com
