    have you been on their web site if they have one
    my friend has one and so far no hickups
    it is heavy and cheap therefore i am guessing it is made of steel and is stamped or forged or whatever is the cheapest method

    however only one person actually gave an instance of what went wrong
    i would guess one should only use std pressure 9mm - maybe the 45 would be better since it has lower pressures for the cheaper metal

    Well, I've shot a LNIB HiPoint......What a POS!

    Tried 4 different brands of ammo with equal success (or lack thereof).

    On average, out of a 10 round mag, we experienced the following:

    4 misfires (light primer strikes)
    4 failure to feeds (round stuck on the feed ramp or failure to go fully into battery)

    On the rare occasion the gun actually fired, it was grouping (if you could call it that) about 18" high and 12" left. At seven yards!

    But to be fair, the gun was heavy enough to be a very effective bludgeon at close quarters.

    No it's not worth it.. Here are some of Hi-Point's handguns from Bud's Gun Shop. All of them are less than $170 brand new and shipped.

    9mm $135.00

    .40s&w $164.00

    .45acp $160.00

    I own a Hi-Point in 45 and I have had zero issues with it. It has less felt recoil than a 1911 and I have not had to spend big bucks to get it to shoot tight groups. My Hi-point will group 5 shots in the x all day as long as I do my part at 25 yards.

    i also had the hi-point 45,was no tac driver when i had it, at 5 feet away it couldnt hit a foot wide trunk of a tree, rifling was bad. i know there are some hi-points that are nice but theres more lemons then cherrys when u go for hi-point. better off geting a sigma,ruger,or save up and get a nicer handgun.
