    Erik why I haven't seen any of your high end guns posted here at DC.
    You sure post a lot of Hi Points of others and there bandwidth.
    At least copy the pics and upload them to your photobucket account.

    My Hi Point Funny:

    Spray painted with Matt Black Duracoat

    Great plinking carbine reliable and surprisingly accurate.

    Fun to shoot and fun to mod.

    LOL

    I mean no harm just found humor in spray painting a gun.

    If thats all someone can afford I support them 100% as I
    would rather someone be armed than not. Myself I don't
    have any really expensive guns. No I don't have a
    Hi Point either

    I actually do believe the carbines to be well made.

    While I don't own a Hi-Point I think they have done a service to law abiding citizens by democratizing the ownership of defensive firearms. It may not be practical to carry but as long as it goes bang when you pull the trigger it can save your life in a burglary or home invasion.

    You have done a nice job on the paint. I like the look but I probably would have done a deep metallic black Imron or similar automotive finish.

    I really have to get one of these. Just curious, but how much do you have in this?

    This is a great thread! They are ugly guns backed by the best customer service in the industry (my humble opinion). Hi-Point is really an interesting family owned company built in the USA. Have fun with your Hi-Points!

    Just FYI
    The Hi-Point slide is so massive and bulky because it is not made of Steel.
    It is fabricated of molded Zinc Die-cast commonly called pot-metal.
    Since that material lacks the inherent strength of Steel it needs to be much thicker in all of its dimensions.

    Not entirely true actually. The size also has to do with the mechanical design.
    And just so everyone knows, many "hi end" guns have lots of "pot metal" pieces in them.
    Matter of fact, for those of you with Para's with their highly self promoted "power extractors".... those are "pot metal".
    I know becuase my best friend had his break after the very first 8 rounds from the gun. Which, to be fair, can happen to any mechanical device. It's not a matter of "if" but rather "when".
    After it broke I took the piece to an amature metalurgist friend of mine because the inside of the broken piece looked like a casting rather than a forging. After testing he gave me a list of all the metals he found in it, and then said it was basically poured into a cast with a "pot metal" mixture.

    Para's are not exactly know for their quality either.

    I would venture to say that it is neither a matter of 'if' nor a matter of 'when', but a matter of 'how often?'. HP will break down more often than quality brands (such as, for example, S&W, Glock, SIG, H&K, CZ, etc.). Because of this, HP handguns have more of a chance of breaking down when you need them. A quality firearm is simply a better bet.

    BTW, I see that you are only posting about High Points. Allow me to point out that there is a wealth of information on this site besides jokes about HP, and I recommend that you take part in the other discussions.
