If you fall into the overlapping portion of a Venn diagram between 10mm aficionados, pistol caliber carbine shooters and Hi-Point fans, your dream gun is officially here: the 10mm Hi-Point carbine.

The new 1095TS is a 10mm carbine with a number of nice features and a very attractive price. This is the finalized version of the gun the company hinted about a few months back.


  • 17.5″ threaded barrel
  • fully adjustable ghost ring style sights
  • rubber cheek rest on polymer stock
  • recoil buffer inside of the stock
  • one 10-round magazine included with the rifle
  • the magazine release is mounted on the grip
  • single stage, 6 pound trigger pull
  • overall length of 32″
  • unloaded weight of 7 pounds
  • color options of black, black and black
  • made in the United States of America

The longer barrel of this carbine (when compared to a handgun) can result in increases in both velocity and energy. According to the company, “this carbine [is] so powerful it’s even legal for big game hunting in some states.”


As the gun comes with only one magazine, you will likely want to purchase a few more. At this time, Hi-Point does not list a 1095 magazine for sale on its site. However, other magazines list for $18.50, so I expect the new mags will be offered at the same price.

Of course, the biggest feature for many people will be the price: $389.99. It’s tough to beat that price, and if dollar signs are the primary influencer in your rifle purchase, it makes a solid argument.
