Subject: Hi-Point Carbine Field Strip & Cleaning Instructions

Thanks for the instructions on disassembly & cleaning. The manual (2 page pamphlet) that came with the weapon was very high level. Much more effort involved than cleaning my Glock 17. Will I have to re-sight the weapon each time I clean it? Pete

Response - Pete,

I know what you mean. I have a Glock 19 that I clean immediately after each use, partly because it is so easy to field strip and clean. Not so for this carbine. That's probably one of the reasons that I don't shoot it that much. It's also the main reason I took a lot of pictures and made the webpage (so I'll know how to do it each time).

I wouldn't think you would have to re-sight it each time. I think the front sight is locked into place by the shroud, but I am not sure right now. To be honest I don' think I ever sighted this gun.

Best regards,

Hey like the website info but I took my shroud top plate off of the 4095ts and 2 black little plates fell out? Im not sure if they go between underneath the shroud or above caught me off gaurd, and I didnt notice that in your disassembly pics/?? Strange thanks..wait for your comment..

Response - Bobby,

Sorry. I don't think that I can help you much. I'm pretty sure my carbine doesn't have two little plates as you describe or else I would have made notes and documented it in the pictures. It must be a difference in the guns.

It sounds like they are back up plates #7 as shown on the Exploded View Illustration on the following page.

It doesn't show exactly where they go but it gives a general idea. Hopefully you can figure it out.

Good luck.

Thanks for the help.
I just got my 995TS today & dailed it in, shoots GREAT. Now how often should it be cleaned?
Thanks Steven

Response - Steven

Everyone has different opinions as to how often to clean a gun.

Cleaning any gun depends on a number of factors.
- The type of ammo do you shoot (some ammo is dirtier that others).
- How lazy you are.
- How many rounds you shoot at each session.
- They type of firearm you shoot (some guns are more susceptible to dirt than others).
- How reliable you want your firearm to be (for self defense and hunting
purposes I would think that cleaning after each use would be suitable. Target shooting at the range would not be as crucial and you could slide on some cleanings if needed).

As to your Hi-Point..
The Hi-Point manual says that for your carbine, the barrel should be brushed every 300-400 rounds and complete disassembly and cleaning should be performed every 1,500-2,000 rounds.

It might be a good idea to clean it after every use to just familiarize yourself with the gun, then judge for yourself from how much dirt you see at each cleaning as to how often you actually need to do it.

Best regards,

Response - Jelly

Call Hi-Point or send them an email telling them exactly what you need. I am told they will often send you the part you need for free.

From the Hi-Point website - "For warranty, service, parts, or accessories, contact: info@hi-pointfirearms.net or call 1-866-948-4867".

Best regards,
