There could be other ways to do it, but at the time this seemed fast and convenient, although I tried a couple of times before i got it right.

You have GOT to be kidding me.

If you put a dress and lipstick on a pig, is it pretty?

I have seen two brand spanking new Hi Point slides break in half at CHL classes.

They are pot metal.
Potmetal.
Potmetal.

Pot Metal.

P O T M E T A L.

There is one use for the HiPoint that I can agree with. Buy a case and stash it back. When the SHTF, sell each gun with a box of ammo and you could make a fortune from the clueless people that never saw it coming or you could trade then to your enemies for stuff you can use.

Default Arctic Alaska 995

My $14.73 995 has been round awhile, even treated it to new after market stock (6 years back) the potmetal wonder is still feeding after being drug round many a mile, Its a ok plinker my kids love to shoot.
My oldest girl has outshot boys with SKS and Mini14 she likes it her baby sitting money can get 50 shots for the price of 20 rifle shells
