Default Anybody Got A PC Carbine?

Looked at one the other day, and have watched some reviews.
My Henry 4570 may be up for trade.

I have one. Being a lefty I swapped the bolt handle to the left and the mag release to the right. I installed the Glock mag well since Glock mags are so much cheaper. It didn't take many shots to get the peep sights dead on at 25 yards. I mounted a 1.5-4.5x32 scope in quick detach rings and it sighted in easily too at 50 yards. Oh and these guns are +p rated. I bought some Hornady 124 gr XTP +p ammo to try on a deer this season if it's under 50 yards and broadside.

ya im considering one in 40 myself. Already have two ar15s in 9mm so that's covered. Still would like a 40 and 45 carbine. if highpoint would make there guns to use glock mags the decision would be easy but whatever I get has to use my 23 and 22 mags.

My latest is the Hi-point in 10mm. Love it. Also have one in 40 and 45. I can get 2-3 hi-points for the price of one Ruger. Granted the Rugers are better quality rifles, the Hi-points have been 100% reliable and are very accurate. I do wish there were other magazine options though.

Never had a Hi Point, but in handling the PC9, I liked about everything I saw except the caliber.

I have been eyeing the PC carbine too. I want to put a hog hunt on my bucket list, plus the rifle could double for deer.

Really, I was hoping they would come out with a .357 mag model, which would be ideal.

However, I may have to take a look at the .40 model.

A .40 would be nice. Being a takedown I wonder if it would be a simple barrel swap? My wish list would be a .45 ACP.

Getting 1550 FPS with 180 XTP out of the Hi-point 10mm using No9. That is 44 mag energy level at the muzzle. Great deer or hog medicine.


I have not tried the 180 in the 40 S&W carbine, but with 135 grain Noslers, was getting 1605 FPS at muzzle.


Now y'all have my curiosity up. Going to have to try my 180grain XTP load for my 5" M&P (1170FPS) in the 40 Hi-point carbine and see what I get.

i don't see why a .40 wouldn't work well out of one of these guns.
it says in the specs that it uses 10/22 trigger parts, so i can't see
any problems with trigger pull or creep, etc.
i'd have to pass on a 9. i've already had all of those i ever intend
to have in a handgun or long gun either one.

The United States doesn't have a gun control problem.
We have a people control problem.
