You won't get a "big boost" in velocity, but it'll push it along a little faster, up to a couple hundred FPS depending on the ammo used. You need to go to a slower powder to get more speed with a longer barrel and most folks don't hand load. Even then, there are limits because of the small powder capacity int he 45ACP. OTOH, having a rifle in any pistol caliber is always fun in my opinion. The 45 ACP is a dandy for most uses outside big game and long range varmint busting. The only thing that I don't like is chasing brass! But, like I said, most people aren't reloaders like me.

A lot of people bad mouth the Hi-points simply because they lack the finesse and elegance of design pretty much every other gun line has. OTOH, they are relatively inexpensive and seem to work very well. It was reported they had a good warranty too a couple years back.

Have fun with it!

I had a Hi-Point 995 carbine, I wish I'de never sold it. It would be a great little carbine for the kids to shoot with. I put a lot of ammo through that thing and never had an issue even with my hap hazard cleaning habits at the time.

Go to Youtube and search Hi Point torture test and see how tough these cheap guns are - and they have a VERY GOOD WARRANTY. I know a guy that found one in a dumpster that had been through a house fire that pretty much destroyed it (melted stock, warped metal) and sent it in for repair. Got back a new gun.
