From what I have seen, Hi Points are anything but junk. They may be bulky, and they may be ugly, but they are not junk. They are reliable, damn near indestructable, and come with some of the best customer service you could possibly get.

Did you contact Hi Point? Because they would have fixed them. Many people who own them say they have put thousands of rounds through them without more than a couple jams (possibly caused by the ammo itself). Feel has nothing to do with them being "junk guns".

Maybe this will prove how reliable and indestructable they can be.

You dont know what you are talking about. Ive had a C9 pistol and a 995 Carbine both 9mm for several years. The C9 is heavy and only holds 10rds but it is ultra reliable and Ive shot it thousands of times. The carbine has a cheap BSA red dot scopeon it and I would put it up against any 9mm carbine in the accuracy dept.

A buddy of mine had a part break on his 9mm carbine after 1000's of rounds and he sent it back and they basically rebuilt the gun and sent it back with a list of what they did. Very impressive and far from junk.

Well I think I am going to get it since it has a lifetime warranty can't beat that! I know everyone thinks it is ugly and bulky but if it is reliable and accurate then who cares.

I agree, I bet he doesnt own one, or has never owned one! I've never had a problem with mine one bit, over 1k rounds down the pipe, it feeds, ejects and goes bang everytime I pull the trigger! Buy it and send it into hi point, they will tune it up and put new springs and such in it, and will even send ya a new magazine back with it.

That's a good point.

OP, if you get it, you can just call them and ask if you can send it in for a checkup. I'll bet they'll do that for ya. They also have a reputation of sending extra mags, peep sights, holsters, and even gift certificates for ammo when they return their guns to the owners.

My buddy has one in 40, he wanted od green grips for them, called em up and boom sent em to him for nothing, I have the .45 and wanted the od grips and slide for it, they told me it would be 26$ that's cheap for a new slide and grips, they sent me ghost rings for mine free, and I had a mag base let loose one, I was able to jb weld it to make it work, called em and sent me one, only question asked was my address, now that's what I call customer service, and American made to boot!
