I have owned a Hi Point 45. Awesome gun for the money. People who say they are junk are people that have never owned one. They always talk about what they saw at the range or heard from a friend. But when it comes right down to it they usually have 0 first hand experience.

Default call a CA HI-Point dealer and ask

I'd suggest calling first, as the limitations may be conditional, like pistol grip but 8 round mag and no muzzle devices, you'd be out a longdistance telephone call to a Cali Hi-Point Dealer, Check my post thers a link of Cali Dealers of Hi-Point

they sell a reduced capacity mag for areas that restrict mag count, If they allow AR's and AK's in CA shurely they must allow Hi-Points.
mabe adding a muzzle extension and recoil pad spacer to get past the length clause and reduced mag capacity.


I used to think the same thing about Hi-Points being crummy guns, I was given a 995 carbine that was blown up from firing reloads all I know is there was a ring of brass in the chamber and the extractor claw was missing, the factory said send it to them and they'd fix it and send it back, I mail'd the junker parcil post $14.73 and Hi-Point sent me back a like new gun with all the trimmings.......I only spent $14.73 to mail it, so basicly I had a 995 for the price of postage to send it to them, I dont matter if its blown up, drove over or been in a house fire, send them the remains and you get a new gun back
Ive had it for 6 years here in Northwest Arctic Alaska and wouldnt think of parting with it unless to trade up in caliber to Hi-Point in .45acp

I have about 15 years experience running a police range. I have a lot of experience with them. (from behind the bulletproof glass in the rangemaster's control booth.)

But I'll damned if I'll put one of those things up next to my face and actually fire it.

If you like it, then more power to you.

I'm looking at getting a hi-point carbine, what kind of problems have you seen with them?

I have owned the carbine and the pistol both in 9mm. Both were huge POS'. Nothing is smooth or right with the things. And yes they are legal in CA.

Like i said about my wife before i was married dont knock it till your try it. Yeah they are a bear to work on . but pistols and rifles alike are pretty good shooting weapons in my humble opinion fun little shooters. just saying

from a previous post on hi points

I have to agree i might crack jokes about them but that sir is one fine plinking pistol loved taking it to the range when ever i'd go. i have put 2000 rds through mine . I wanted to add that i did have a few hang ups here in there but nothing to wright home about.

Only problem i had with it was when i first bought it the firing pin broke and i took it back to were i bought it and they sent it away and fixed it free of charge and even sent me a few extra mags too boot.


How man post on hi points has there been i can recall a few of them.
