That failure was proven to be faked, the owner did it deliberately to slam Hi Points. He refused to send it in for repair, refused to let anyone else examine the break etc.

hi-point haters are know nothing faggots, plain and simple. if hi-points cost $1000 they would praise them up and down.

these are the kids that trade last years"hot new" pistol in for this years "hot new" pistol. every year, to stay "in style" with all the other mall ninjas.

LMAO
What flew up your vagina and died?

Here's your Hi-Point Zamak-3 pot metal.

See, it's not a matter of Gun snobbery. If that were the point, I wouldn't own a Heritage revolver ($150) or a Kel-Tec 9mm ($250). Along with my Para 1911 ($800).

It's a matter of personal safety. All my cheap guns are made of Carbon or Stainless steel.

Hi-Points are not.

thanks... you talked me out of purchasing one. How the hell can making a gun out of pot metal even be legal??? god forbid you stuff the mag with 147g rounds...

second hand unsubstantiated evidence?? whatever there are very few failures compared to the number of guns sold. Here is a picture of a broken 1911 barrel

I never claimed they were different guns.

But, since your so anal on the (hi) point.
Here's a slide break on the FRONT of the slide.

Oh, and it's a video like you failed to provide.

False Hi Point will send out parts for free if you want to work on your gun yourself, but sending it back usually gets you a free magazine for your troubles. Haven't had to send mine back, 500+ rounds thru my c9 with zero FTF or FTE. Best part was $129 new in the box.

Two years ago I bought a 9mm Hi-Point C9 with a compensator. I've run a few hundred rounds through it. Its a tremendously reliable gun. Since I picked it up, I bought a regular C9, a 995 9mm carbine and a CF380. I love them all! The gun snobs tell me they are cheap but at the range they all want to shoot it because it shoots so much better than their Blocks, er, uh, Glocks.

For the life of me, I cannot understand why everyone gripes about things being made overseas then when some company like Hi-Point comes along and creates a good product with an unlimited lifetime warranty they still don't buy it and complain they are not any good.

Comments?

Carefull about HI point.


Their logo has a triangle/pyramid like 80% of the illuminatis corp. The guns are cheap and you're told to not open them but to send them back for free repair. Why put a lifetime warranty on such cheap stuff ?

They contain location microchips imo. Someone should open one up to see.

Claiming that a Hi-Point is a better weapon than a Glock, makes me have SERIOUS doubts about your sanity.

I have shot both the 9mm carbine and pistol. Maybe 1 jam per 100 rounds or so.

They seem fine to me. But I'm not a marksman either.

For my level of skill, I am the limiting factor, not the firearm. And the price is right.

Also, the heavier slide actually makes aiming more accurate.

Re: 2 Years Ago I bought a Hi-Point C9 Comp. Now, I buy every Hi-Point I can afford!
Here's the deal.
The barrel is built like a Sherman Tank and very high grade forged steel that is then polished and intensely blued. It's absorbing 99.99% of the combustion and the gas released through the primer port activates the slide to eject the spent casing and chamber the next round.

Hi Points are rated for +P ammunition.
+P ammunition also requires +P grade brass shells.
+P ammunition is 30% and sometimes greater than the maximum powder load allowance for your average big name brass shell bullets.

The slide is a cast metal known as Zamak-3. A tried and true casting metal.

Pot metal refers to cheap, soft scrap that in the 80's and 90's often included lead and rarely do we see it manufactured outside of China. Pot metal is not a strict recipe. It is whatever the brokers can find that isn't toxic, is cheap and can produce a shiny alloy for jewelry sold at concerts and the mall. Garbage tools at flea markets.

Admittedly, Zamak-3 is the lowest grade of the family of casting metals. It is however used for seat belt buckles other car parts and reliable but low budget tools. You have zamak alloys all around you and don't even know it. Bolts in various appliances and even tools in your garage. The stuff is just everywhere.

In this tress test we see the Hi Point after it has been run over, shot with a blocked barrel, thrown around, crucial parts filed and it still shoots reliably.They do even more to it in the video I included and it still fires reliably. This and other owner testimonials influenced my decision to buy 2 Hi Points over an American made Umarex/Colt 1911. The pictures of split Hi Points fake and sawed or truly the result of manufacturer defect have not resulted in injury or lawsuit and, Hi Point literally throws free parts at you without asking for shipping. The gun's have a lifetime warranty and, it's irresponsible to shoot recreationally without safety glasses and ear protection in the first place.

In closing.
The barrels on my .40's are bigger than that on any Remington or Colt .45 my father owns and about equal to his .44 magnum revolvers with a 7 inch barrel. It's easily twice as thick as common brand high caliber pistols and is made from a very high grade forged gun steel. There's no shortage of light slides made from forged steel these days in tried and true pistol models from big brand names.
It's a simple and clever design that utilizes a cheap metal slide and a polymer frame. Every single component in the gun that is metal uses FORGED STEEL. Very high quality gun metal and gun grade spring steel.
You're literally crying about the slide which is not a high stress component. It sees 1/1000 of the 40,000 PSI it's rated for.
The SLIDE is the only ZAMAK-3 in the gun!
Even the pins holding it together are heavy duty steel.

The guns are cheap as they should be. They have used a simple design that is not without defect but metals that are 100% reliable. A few Hi Points have failed, majority have not. This is true of every single gun brand and model that exists.

Also take into account that the barrel is removed from the meltdown video.
