Ive had the C9 for a few years now. It was my first pistol. I really have to say it is very reliable. The only malfunction i ever had was the magazine catch spring. It came loose from this horrible old Israeli ammo i was using(1000rds for free, i couldnt turn it down). Anyway, I sent it back to Hi-point for repair( i love the "no questions asked" warranty) They fixed it up and sent me a hand written note from the technician whom worked on it for me that read "I repaired the magazine catch spring, Cleaned the bore, polished the slide,oiled and tuned everything up for you. For your inconvenience Ive enclosed a spare magazine, Ghost ring sights and a trigger lock, Free of charge". Ive put well over 3k rounds since then with no issues.

For a 9mm under $150, its Ugly as hell.. But very accurate and reliable and it comes with a great lifetime warranty.

My brother in-law owns the 9mm carbine. Just as the handgun..very ugly but extremely accurate. Nice thing is that we can trade off magazines. I can pull the mag right out of my C9 and slap it in the carbine and fire away.

I couldnt believe how great the service was. I was a bit skeptical on shipping the pistol in the mail. The woman i spoke with on the phone had said "Just put it in a flat rate box and label it as "machine parts" because thats all it is if its not firing". I must admit i laughed about it but it cost me $9.00 to ship it to them and they repaired it and sent it back within 8 days.

i can say this much after reading all the posts on the hi-point, if i ever see one, i'm buying it! really what is more important, looks or function? don't get me wrong, i like good looking guns too, but i will trust my life to a reliable gun any day of the week.

Now, I'm neither for it or against it.
I just don't know much about it. But
what I am scratching my head about
is the relative low price on a Hi Point.
If they are that good as the previous
reports say they are. How come they
sell for practically nothing in these days
where everything has been going up?
Just interested.

Very good point, i was interested in the hi point .380 a while ago just for range use only, posted the topic on xdtalk and got a lot of post steering me away from it but on the other hand got a decent amount saying the only people that bash them are the ones that never owned them. Idk I think I'm steering clear from them.

To each their own, as the saying goes. I own several handguns, about 9 on a quick count and one is the highpoint. To much "hype" against 'em cause they are inexpensive, notice I did not say cheap. Surely not in a class with some of the finer weapons, but they do shoot well and have great customer service.

End of story.

The owners whole concept was to make a dependable, accurate, pistol that ANY ONE could afford. If you go to their web site he states that.
