I am not sure a muzzle break can be put on the Hi-Point .45 acp, but here is the website for Hi-Point 4595TS Compensator: http://www.hi-pointfirearms.net/products.php?cat=17

That's a good thing because it would just be taken from you, against your will.

All those wantabe gun experts go out and buy a Hi-Point firearm then spend their lives complaining that the gun don't work. Those types would be a danger to themselves even if they own a bean shooter because they would choke themselves on the beans.

First, Hi-Point has customer service second to none. The first time I

ever liked "Yes -men".

Second, all you Hi-Point haters better have a second look

at their carbines.

It's a whole new ball game, and if you haven't

actually tried them, you just don't know. They're

being rated better than many carbines at two and three

times the price. They come NIB with rails, a shock absorbing stock,

takedown tools, and a sling.

It's real easy to sit back on the internet, and parrot other's

statements with no real experience, but many people who have

real world experience know differently...

Hi-Point makes some good guns. Remember these aren't Les Baer Custom 1911's that you just paid $3000. Yes, some components are polymer, with steel embedded where needed, but plastic is put in many guns costing hundreds dollars more and nobody complains about them. Why? Because you just spent $500+ for a gun that doesn't shoot or handle any better than a Hi-Point. ALL semiauto pistols/rifles jam, or have ejection problems. Why? Because the gun doesn't like the ammo being used. Change the ammo to what the gun likes, and NOT what you want to feed it, and you won't run into any problems. Yes, you could have rough spots on that new gun, but with shooting it, it will smooth itself out. Another problem is how you grip the gun. If you have a grip like a dead fish, you won't be able to shoot any semiauto, because the problem isn't the gun, IT'S YOU. You also need to remember that Hi-Point guns are blow-back designed, which has proven itself over 50yrs, but ammo plays a big part in making it work correctly. The guns seem heavy, but no more heavier than a large frame Glock or 1911. My Hi-Point 40 S&W is carried with me all over my farm and has saved my barn cats from possums, coons, snapping turtles, snakes, and maybe one day possibly save my Family, but hope it never comes to that, but I wouldn't be afraid to prove it's worth. My 9mm Hi-Point carbine is right by my bedside for any encounters, right along with my shotgun(Rem 870) which I hope I never have to use----except for hunts. Over time I have learned what ammo to get for each gun, but it takes time with testing on targets, so if it jams, or fails to eject, change ammo or grip positions---it's not the gun. The alloys used in Hi-Points are made better today than when they first came out, so if your info is based on 10yrs past, things are different now. Also if Hi-Points are so cheaply made, why then are they rated for P+ loads. Sounds like a well put together gun to me, if they can handle defense loads without any problems, and if you do have any problems, the warranty is above any gun maker out there---no matter how old the Hi-Point gun is, or how many people owned it, it will get fixed.

I've handled hi-points. They. Suck. IMO of course. And i'll give props to their customer service, BUT with quality that low, you BETTER have stellar customer service if your going to have any kind of client base.

All wantabe gun experts should really stick with $4.99 Cap Guns.
They would be so much safer to themselves and to society.
Hi-Point guns are not for the rookie shooters.
