Nice, I guess Hi Point doesn't recommend tearing them down all the way to clean anyway from what I've gathered. It sounds decent to me, I'm going to check em out over the weekend.

Very true of the cleaning aspect, they are terrible to tear down. Some my cringe at the thought of this; I have never cleaned either of my hi-points. I once read on hi-points forum site, "to shoot the gun until it will not shoot anymore, then send it back and we will take care of whatever may be the issue."

I only took mine down to prove a point to myself that I could do it. Almost wish I hadn't. Funky designs in there. But it has always gone bang and again 1000+ rounds with oeiginal factory lube job.

The MSRP on that gun is $155. You may not be getting the bargain you think you are. I would check around if it was me.

That sucks since it's a lifetime warranty for the gun. At least whoever bought it from you is eventually guaranteed a working gun.

Great gun for money. Heavy for only 8 rounds though.

Right now it's very hard to find a hi point for under MSRP. In fact most are going well above MSRP. My wife wanted a carbine. The LGS said $250 when they come in. When they came in it was $329. For that price we are saving up for a better carbine. We can get by with the one we have for now.
