I tried to purchase one today on guns.com and their site said that I could not buy one in NJ. I'm trying to figure out why that is. It is a 10 round magazine. Can someone shed some light on why I wouldn't be allowed to buy one in NJ?

I have one,  it probably just needs the barrel to be welded so it doesn't have 2 evil features.

I do want to also say, if i was buying again, id get it without the threaded barrel. It makes the take down a little more annoying.

All Hi-Point Carbines now come with a threaded barrel. That along with the pistol grip is prohibited in NJ. Just need to get the thread protector pinned/welded. A lot of places won't ship to NJ if it is not state complaint as is, so even if your FFL agrees to do the work, you are SOL. In stock at Shooters.

Thanks to the State watching out for feelings, the 995 is banned because it is a butt ugly caricature of a gun and the sight of it offends nice guns. Of course I have one but this junkyard dog of a gun is my go to for HD. If it don't go bang, I can scare away the bad guys with it's ugly.

My .380, .40, and .45 Hi Point carbines all spit out anti-commie pills every time I press the "Dispense Freedom" lever.

Made in America, for Americans.

I wish I was as happy with mine.  Mine is super finicky with the magazines. It needs to be sighted almost weekly since the plastic below the barrel is slightly off, it pushes the sights.  I also can't remove the front sight because the thread is pinned. I wish I just went with the Ruger or Beretta instead.

Mine is strictly for home defense so I need it to shoot when I really need it to shoot and so far it's been pretty damn reliable at the range. BTW, it won't win any beauty contests but I don't think it's that ugly. I'd take reliability over beauty any day and the price fit my budget.

You can make it a little less ugly (and much cooler) with one of these:

Anyone here have one of these? 

There is someone here with one. I was actually going to do exactly that last year, take a 995 and do the bullpup conversion. Problem was, at that time, no 995 were available anywhere. Those HTA conversions are really neat.

I ended up taking an existing CZ Scorpion I had, and did the CZ bullpup conversion on it.

How is the trigger on the CZ conversion? 

It uses the original trigger, and drops back in. It connects back to the hammer with a sliding bar, since it's mounted forward. I thought that might be an issue, but so far, it's fine.

    • Any more 7.62 x 51?  If previous falls through, I'll take it.

    • Thanks. Refresher: Requiring Firearm Safety Training: S-2169/A-5030 (Weinberg/Reynolds-Jackson) would modernize firearm ID cards, as well as require completion of a firearm safety course in order to receive a permit to purchase a gun or receive a firearm ID card. Connecticut, California, Hawaii, Illinois, Rhode Island, Maryland and the District of Columbia all have laws requiring individuals to undergo safety training prior to being able to purchase. [How would this apply to existing FID holders? Definition of acceptable training? Conspicuously absent. Potential impacts on passing on firearms to your heirs.] Mandating Safe Storage of Firearms: Owning a firearm for protection in the home can present a substantial obstacle to safe firearm storage, with individuals often opting to keep weapons loaded and easily accessible. Last legislative session, the Assembly passed A-3696/S-2240 (Downey/Gopal) requiring firearm owners to store the firearm in a securely locked box or container; in a location where a reasonable person would believe to be secure; or to secure the firearm with a trigger lock.  Raising Minimum Age to Purchase Long Guns to 21: Under current law, a person 18 years of age and older may obtain a firearms purchaser identification card and a handgun purchaser is required to be at least 21 years old. The bill (A-1141/S-3605, Freiman/Cryan) increases from 18 to 21 the age at which a person is eligible to receive a firearms purchaser identification card used to purchase shotguns and rifles but would still allow for those at least 18 to possess a long gun for purposes of hunting; military drills; competition; target practice; training; or under the supervision of a parent or guardian.   Promoting Microstamping Technology: Microstamping technology provides law enforcement with the tools to quickly link firearm cartridge casings found at the scene of a crime to a specific firearm, without having to recover the firearm itself.  The technology essentially creates a “license plate” on cartridge casings to identify the gun that was used to shoot the ammunition.  Last legislative session, S-112/A-1098 (Weinberg/Downey) would require within a year that firearm manufacturers incorporate this technology into new handguns sold in New Jersey. [This worked so well in CA... IOW, no more new pistols for sale.] Establishing Electronic Ammunition Sales Recordkeeping: The State Commission of Investigation (SCI) issued a report in 2016 finding that straw purchases of ammunition were unchecked because firearm IDs lacked photo identification.  The SCI also found that sales records were often hand-written into log books — a problem for law enforcement, which should be able to consult an electronic database when it investigates questionable ammunition purchases.  A-1292/S-1481 (Greenwald/Weinberg) would require manufacturers or dealers of handgun ammunition to keep a detailed electronic record of ammunition sales, and report ammunition sales to the State Police. [Any talk of banning internet sales?] Banning .50 Caliber Firearms: Military-style .50 caliber rifles are banned or restricted in several other states. California has a complete ban on .50-caliber rifles, Connecticut bans specific models and Maryland has some restrictions.  S-103/A-1280 (Gill/Greenwald) would revise the definition of "destructive device" under New Jersey law so that it includes weapons of .50 caliber or greater. [It's about time. These things are used in what... zero crimes in this state annually?] I wouldn't be surprised if remaining evil features, others, and internet sales, among other things, get added to the list.
