My family went to visit my dad and stepmother's today for dinner and exchanging of gifts. After some present-opening, my dad hands me a small box. It didn't weigh much of anything. I opened it and inside was a smaller box. I opened that and inside was four Hershey Kisses and a small note. The note said "You found me. Unfold and read." I unfolded it and it said, "look under the couch". I looked under the couch and pulled out a long box wrapped in green wrapping paper. When I opened it, it had a shiny new 4095 carbine inside.

Talk about Santa granting my wish! This was a very special Christmas to me. Not just for the gifts, but also my brother was in town to celebrate Christmas with us. This was the first time in several years because he drives truck and was living in Pennsylvania until recently when he married his third wife.

Okay, here's the porn:


This is with my 4095 beside my 995:

I noticed that the 4095 felt noticeably heavier than the 995, and that the overall length was about an inch longer. It appears that the difference in length is in the receiver cover area.

A closer view:

I can't wait to order the bullet mold, sizer, carbide factory crimp die and shellholder for it, along with a couple plastic ammo boxes. I plan on buying the Lee 6-cavity TL401-175-SWC tumble lube mold. This carbine will never see a factory load nor a jacketed bullet. ;)

You lucky dog!

Between HPFF and HPT, I keep reading about everyone getting guns for Christmas. The closest thing I got was 2 - 100rd boxes of WWB from my Father-In-Law, and a chance to shoot 2 - .22lr rifles, a 20ga single shot, my Phoenix hp22a, and my C9 out at my Granny-In-Laws place. I am the Great White Hunter :) . We hunted and old clay pot, an old toilet bowl, and a few old beer bottles. I am kinda bummed about not getting any guns myself though. :(

I'm not bummed though.

So very cool! I like the side by each pictures of the 995 and 4095. I had asked recently if the stocks would interchange betwixt the two and someone mentioned they are different lengths. I can see they are but I'm still curious if they'd actually fit in each others pants?

I'm curious why you won't fire factory rounds through the 40? Thanks. :)

Why not fire factory ammo? That's just a personal choice. ;) I've been a reloader since 1991 and I'm pretty hardcore when it comes to my ammo supply for my firearms. I just want the biggest bang for my buck. I can buy the dies, bullet mold, etc. and cast and load 1000 rounds or more for the price of 5 boxes of factory ammo. It's also a known fact that barrels last longer when fed cast bullets because they're softer than copper and therefore less friction.

As far as the stocks go, I also noticed that on the pistol grip there are two screws on each side of the 4095 compared to just one screw on the 995.

I'm thinking that Hi-Point could make their carbines even less expensive if they could redesign the 995 to fit the same platform as the 4095, so both carbines would use the same stocks and receiver covers. The 995 would just have a smaller breech block than the 4095. I'm pretty sure they thought of this, but at the time the 995 was designed, they weren't even thinking of other calibers or else they would have.

Now all I need to complete the carbine collection is that 4595. ;)

I'll be working on the carbine data. I have two pet loads so far, one for my 995 and one for my C9. Of course, all my data will be for cast bullets. ;)

For the 4095, I have a 4 pound can of Herco just begging to be burnt. I'm hoping the 40 S&W cartridge won't be as finicky as the 9X19.
