USVI, Volkswagon made a cheap to produce car, the Beetle that spanned many years in production, making them into the millions and sent worldwide. the Yugo is not even in the same league as the Volkswagon!

the Hi-Point is more like the Volkswagon. you don't want to buy one then don't. and showing one that's broken proves nothing. even high dollar firearms break and fail. comes back to a saying my father use to tell us, "if it has moving parts i can fail at some point"

so what is your favorite firearm or pistol? i'll bet we could find where even the ones you like have had reports of failures or breakage too.

I remember the Volkswagon commercials which stated "Still under $2,000"
Way things are going someday the same will be said for a Hi-point

yes it could Hossfly.

personally i don't own one, but have shot one that a friend got in trade with another firearm deal he did. we tried to tried to trash that little pistol and we couldn't!

i own much nicer and higher dollar pistols than the Hi-Point, but if a person is on a budget and can't afford much, and needs a pistol for SD, it's one that i highly suggest looking into.

it's also a pistol i suggest for someone looking for an inexpensive firearm for the farm or work truck or the tackle bos or the boat.

USVI, what is your point? it's broke. doesn't require an engineering degree to figure that out from the pictures!

is it your opinion that higher dollar firearms can't break or fail?

it seems that because it cost's less than $200 NIB, that all Hi-Points are going to fail, so therefor they are all junk, huh? no other firearm brand fails is your opinion i guess.

i'm sorry were you trying to make some sort of statement here or just wanting to exert your own form of snobbery?

In high school I had several friends with VW beetles and all of them had plywood floors cause the steel floor had rusted thru. Nothing perfect. I said this before, both my father in law and brother in law, owned Hi Point C9's and they perform pretty good. I would not have it as a range gun but as a back-up or extra lying around, possibly. Also, if its all you can afford, it's better than nothing.

looking at the pictures closer up, it's definately broken. but that proves nothing to me. any firearm can break or fail. USVI is bashing them because they are inexpensive, so therefor not worthy to him.

he thinks posting a picture of a broken Hi-Point adds credence to his post. it doesn't. what if i posted a picture of a broken Smith and Wesson pistol? or a Colt? does that mean the S &W or Colt makes inferior firearms? not hardly! just proves that anything can break or fail, regardless of cost. but some wnat to jump on the bandwagon that if it breaks and it's inepensive then it's crap.

This is my 995TS, I picked it up used for $250 last fall. I know its not cool to like a HI-POINT, but i gotta be honest. It runs great, is very accurate at 50yrds, and is a blast to shoot. Its nice to have a scary black rifle in 9mm, for when i dont feel like feeding the SR556 $$$$$$

I own the .45acp. its actually the first pistol ive ever bought. It was the only one i could afford on the spot lol. Ive reloaded plenty of diff. weights/charges and bullets for it. The thing spits out anything i feed it.
NIB it did awesome on paper,and have yet to have a FTF. Its big and clunky,but once i got used to it i actually like the feel of it.
