I remember wanting to jump through the back window when the shop I worked at got its first shipment of around thirty Hi Point pistols. All I could see was warranty repair after warranty repair in a future filled with griping customers. It didn't happen! Years later, they still work (excepting the odd lemon that no doubt turns up).

They are hated because they have zero artistry. In a counter filled with sexy Walther PPKs, sophisticated SIGs, venerated 1911s, immortal Colt SAAs and slim Ruger MKIIIs, Browning Hi Powers, Smith & Wesson "Dirty Harry" revolvers and even snubby Charter Arms Undercovers and businesslike Glocks, the Hi Point lays there like a fat lump of die cast injection molded shit. But those lumps of shit go bang, and lots of people just want something in their night stand to launch bullets at a burglar with. They're not gun nuts, and they want their launcher cheap. For the sales people, a Hi Point is hardly worth doing a backround check for, but wtf, it's a sale.

I actually have had one of these. Did it run? Why yes, perfectly, and always, just like almost all of them. I honestly believe that most of the hate of most very well built cheaper products comes from folks trying any way possible to justify their purchase of a weapon or product that cost 2/3/4 times as much but in reality runs no better.

I dont or wont ever own one. I was shooting with some friends and I was shooting someones hipoint 9mm.

I fired 3 rounds and the barrel separated. Then I asked how much he paid for it, he said 120 NEW and I knew I should have never even fired it.


same with Jennings. Beware lol

Ha.. I was looking at my throw down hidden in the garage - its a high-point 9mm. I keep the mag seperate from the weapon and I inserted the mag - chambered a round and the mag fell right out the weapon. I thought I might have just mis aligned it. Nope ... loose fitting POS. I would be better of throwing this thing at an intruder.

Anyone want to buy a hipoint?

Thats my point, 95% say it "IS" a quality product.
