American made, Hi-Point Firearms are incredibly robust, reliable well designed and not so pretty! But, when you pull the trigger the little pointy metal things fly out of the round tube thing with the screwthreads in it and do so reliably and accurately, well that is about all you can ask from a firearm. www.hi-pointfirearms.com
Hi-Point represents one of the best firearm bargains available in today’s gun market. And that is easily demonstrated in the high volume of sales of these fun, robust, reliable, accurate and affordable firearms.
How affordable? The basic7-pound .45 ACP Carbine in .45 ACP is $318.00 MSRP and the 35 ounce .45ACP pistol runs $199.00 MSRP. Combine both guns and they are only $517.00 MSRP!
The simple blow back design reliably feeds ammunition from the single stack .45 ACP 9-round and 10 round (9mm and .40S&W) magazine which also fits the Hi-Point series of like caliber semi-auto pistols. And there is the story.
In these days of high-cost and sometimes scarce ammunition many folks are eliminating calibers from their stash. In the event of the various survival scenarios, simpler and tougher is better and having your handgun in the same caliber as your long arm is a huge advantage if and when things get slim. Even tactically and logistically better is that the magazines will fit both handguns and long guns.
Additionally, should things really go nuts the use of high-dollar sniper and specialized semi-auto firearms is a fairytale. As has been shown the world over, for serious urban survival simple, robust, reliable, and common gets the job done best. By common we mean both caliber availability and interchangeability of parts and ammunition magazines.
Hi-Point’s carbines and handguns of the same caliber use the same magazines. Additionally the carbine’s longer barrel will increase velocity figures between 80-200 FPS over a like chambered handgun, especially with +P loads.
Hi-Point Carbines are legal for deer in some states and we found them highly-effective out to 200 yards (due to firing range servicing at the time we did not test further). The above image shows the carbine with an optional low cost red dot sight.
Hi-Point Carbines are employed by law enforcement world-wide and have proven they can easily match the performance of much more expensive carbines. And where money is of concern, and where isn’t it nowadays? An economical and reliable Hi-Point carbine and handgun combination is hard to beat. www.hi-pointfirearms.com
