Thread: hi point

    hi point

    I just came from a shop that had hi point handguns for next to nothing. is this brand reliable? I was told the barrel is fixed so it shoots straighter than alot of 1911's & others that have "loose" barrels. also was told they have a lifetime warranty, not just for defects either. I was thinking about getting 1 in every caliber but don't want anything that's gonna jam every other round or is fussy with what brand ammo it shoots.

  3. I have a Hi-Point 9MM and I have never had a problem with it. I know that some of my friends that have an extensive gun collection wouldn't own a hi-point because they aren't expensive enough or aren't as popular as a Glock or H&K or the like. I bought mine as my first handgun after I bought my first house because it was inexpensive and did the job as a home defense weapon.

    Hope this helps you make your decision.

    I have a C9 and a 995 carbine. After ~5000 rounds, I broke the firing pin in the carbine. I called to verify what I needed to do to get it repaired. I told the rep that I had both guns and that I was the second owner of the pistol. He took my address and 2 days later I had replacement firing pins and springs for both guns. They both feed any ammo I give them, and are accurate enough to keep me happy.

    They're heavy, ugly,inexpensive, and dependable. If you're looking for a basic pistol that works, you'll not be disappointed.

    I can vouch for Hi-point's customer service. My buddies' JH broke a firing pin, and the company sent me a new one for free. That gun was a b**** to disassemble though. I wouldn't buy one, but they seem dependable enough for a plinking gun. Can't beat the price.

    I'd own one. Cheap enough that you don't worry about scratching it up or whatever. Would make a great gun to keep in the car at work (where they don't want you to have it on you).

    As I understand it, to clean them, you don't really take them apart. You sort of run a patch through the barrel, and that's about it.

    If I was looking for a good weapon, and didn't have much cash, Hi-Point is what I'd buy.

    Can't say enough about that and they aren't sexy and lots of people can't get enough of running them down. However they are dependable and all that kinds of stuff that counts. For the price you can't beat them. I haven't ever heard a person that owns one complain, only those too snobish to admit that it is a good gun.

    Per the Service Rep. I spoke to: Run a patch or BoreSnake through it after ~500 rounds. After ~5000 rounds, do the full disassembly (drive out the roll pin) and give everything a good cleaning. Same routine for the pistols or the carbines.

    Lightbulb They seem to be great patriot guns!

    Regardless of their looks (which are unattractive), I think that these are fantastic weapons. They are accurate, dependable, and cheap enough that even non-gun people can afford to drop a couple of bills and become legal gun owners. It takes considerably more motivation to spend $500-$1,000 on what is certainly a more attractive, but not necessarily more effective defense tool. Coming from a very poor family, I believe that poor citizens have the same right to defense that middle class (if there is one left) and the wealthy have.

    Also, they are cheap enough that you could buy a few to stash in those Festus' SHTF emergency cache buckets! Can you imagine tens or hundreds of thousands of Hi-Point pistols and carbines buried all over the country? Seems reasonable to me!
