New Hi-Point carbine in 10mm Auto, the 1095TS

Hi-Point has finally introduced a carbine in my favorite handgun cartridge, the 10mm Auto. Regardless of what you think of Hi-Point they do have a pretty loyal following. From the numerous Hi-Point firearms I have personally tested, as well as the folks I know who own and run Hi-Points, I can understand why. I am really excited to see this new introduction to their line for a few reasons. I appreciate adding such a cartridge to the carbine line up, and I believe this will just add momentum to the 10mm Auto continuing to go mainstream. I expect further details in the very near future and I have already requested a test sample. Running the 10mm out of a carbine should produce some interesting terminal ballistics.

    I wish they would make an expanded .45 magazine

    When you get your hands on a 1095 I’d like to know if you can shoot 40sw out of it also.

      I expect a test sample as soon as they are available, but I doubt they will work with .40 S&W due the difference in case length and the way an autoloading cartridge headspaces off the case mouth and not the rim.

      You can safely shoot .40 caliber from Ruger’s new 10mm Super Redhawk stainless revolver. Provided moon clips must be used when shooting .40 but are not required when shooting 10mm.

      Hi-point 10mm carbine cannot shoot .40 because of headspace issue as mentioned by Hunter Elliot. Note that semi-auto handguns in 10mm require a dedicated barrel for .40 cal. Although the same 10mm magazines will work fine with .40 caliber.
