Stop laughing already…
Here’s the thing, Hi-Point Firearms is unapologetic about offering some of the lowest priced American-made firearms on the market. But did you know they offer excellent customer service and stand behind the quality of the products they make? They Do.
Some other gun makers to take a lesson or two from Hi-Point about reliability. Over and over again I have read reports of reliability tests on these guns the just frustrate anyone who plans to hate them. They feed just about any ammo and just keep running. One of my buddies took all the reloads in .380 ACP that failed in his expensive big name guns and ran them through a Hi-Point without a single failure to feed or fire. That’s a pretty tall order for any gun.
Being probably the cheapest carbine in the market place and being known for reliability will get many shooters to ignore the fact that the guns are not going to win any beauty contests. Nobody is ever going to checker plastic stocks or engrave a Hi-Point. But if your looking for a rough and tumble truck gun… This is it.
In 2018, Hi-Point is adding power to its carbine line with a new 10 mm version that accepts a 10-round single-stack magazine and it’s +P rated. The rubber cheek rest, recoil absorbing stock and a trigger that is at least acceptable, will all contribute to more fun at the range. The 17.5″ barrel has a threaded muzzle with a sight rail for optics and a lower rail for accessories, dare I refer to them as Pic-rails. Until this 10mm came along I was not ready to own one, now I will have to add one to the collection.
