    It looks good. I think you have it dialed in pretty well.

    After I changed the load for my 4095 from Herco and 700X to Blue Dot, my groups are very similar, a little over 2" for 30 shots. Those goofy little carbines are really amazing for the money, plus a LOT of fun.
    Liberals don't know they're stupid in the same way a fish does not know it is wet. It is just their natural state of being.

    I have 3, 9mm, .40sw and .45acp.

    No real desire for 10mm or .380.

    Like you said, you just can't run 10 rounds through one without getting that big smile on your face.
    Everyone I've seen shoot one turns around with that big Grin. It just is.

    I put on a cheapo holo red dot on my 4595 and it works just fine for my elder eyes. After cataract surgery, lining up target, front sight, and rear sight is kinda iffy at best. Red dot on target, target is gone. I tried it at the 100 yd gong and hit 8 out of 10 times. Not too bad. I get similar groups as the OP does at the range that he shot at. Very fun.

    I have not searched, but can anything be done with the trigger? Mine is pretty atrocious.

    Sure is fun though.

    I also bought the 9mm 40 and the 45 , and see no need for the 380 or 10mm though I am sure they would be nice for some uses , I was shooting with the 45 yesterday , son and a coworker of his and they enjoyed the hi point as much as the ar and the handguns , it is a handy carbine . Gave the 9mm to daughter she enjoys it , and I prefer the 40 and 45 .

    I have the 9mm for years. Easy to shoot and it gobbels up ammo faster then my 10/22. I also stuck a cheap 15 dollar red dot. It hits steel every time.

    All 3 of mine wear 60$ range truglo Red Dots.

    The .45acp has the 2x optical Truglo Red Dot. Looks like a small short scope with small bell's.

    Does a wonderful job of helping bring those targets in where I can see them.

    I don't know, something about the .380 carbine pulls at me. Maybe it is because it is so cute in that caliber. I have the .45 version myself too and it works quite well.

    The trigger return spring can be replaced with a weaker spring. I found a spring in my junk that was the same length but a bit lighter and it works very well. There is an article on the web where a fellow replaced his with a ball point pen spring, but it is too weak and will not hold up. My original trigger pull was over 10 pounds, it is now 4 !/2# and shoots well.
