I was wondering why the Hi-Point 9mm above wasn't included in the list of carbines. This gun is especially easy on the pocket book at $349. Shop around and you might save some $$. Mine is accurate, haven't had any issue with failure to fire or jams. It is pretty accurate. At 50 yrd, I can keep the rounds within 8-9" circle. At 100 yards it drops off some but still getting some good patterns.
