Only the rail directly on the receiver is rigid enough for a scope.

A lower power scope is all that is really worth putting on one, as the range is about 100yds at best. Bullet drop is the big limiting factor.

A 2-4X scope can work well.

After trying a scope, I have a red dot on mine, seems to work much better. The trigger seems to be the limiting factor on a Hi-Point carbine.

They come new with a scope mount. You have to replace the sight with the base. If you don't have it you should be able to order one factory direct.


I would not put anything on there over 2X or better just a red dot.

I honestly prefer shooting it with the iron sights but I don't shoot it much any more.
Tomorrow is the most important thing in life. Comes into us at midnight very clean. It's perfect when it arrives and it puts itself in our hands. It hopes we've learned something from yesterday.
