Hi-point is spending a lot of cash to fix & repair there pistols. I think if they can keep it together for a couple more years they will get that highly sought after cult following.
There pistols are cheap if they can keep there customers happy they can grow with there current demographic. Raise there prices slowly over time as there models change. Been done many times, old school capitalism @ it's best.
Personally I wouldn't buy a Hi-point firearm but I would buy there stock. as in stock market, no pun intended.
They (hi point) actually have raised their prices over the past few years, but I think it's just to keep up with inflation.
Used to be able to find them for 100 brand new, now I think their cheapest model is 125.
Personally, if I had to choose, I think I'd pick the GLOCK, but it would be a very hard decision. I have experience with both, and really the only thing I like about GLOCK better is the ammo capacity. I don't like the ergonomics of either, my personal experience has been that both are accurate and reliable in my hands, although I've heard the horror stories related to both.
In the end, I might would decide to save a little money and take the hi point, who knows... Leaves more money for ammo...
But not for my next gun purchase, I'm still keeping my fingers crossed for a Colt 1911.
