That price is very good! I paid the equivalent of 350 dollars for a 9mm Star where I live.
i will be watching this eagerly. I actually looked for longitudinal data on Hi-point reliability, but the opinions are far too polarized to be taken seriously.
I think I'll start a thread about testing my C9 as well.
Well, Justin is a fairly serious competitor by my standards, and he loads his own 9mm. He says he will work up a competition load for the Hi-Point just as he would for his CZ (another gun with a reputation for puking) and we'll see what happens. Maybe there's a load that the Hi-Point will love.
Federal FMJ has been 100% problem free with mine. But finding a hollow point hat is reliable has been tricky.
Ruger PC-9, (9mm) PC-4 (.40S&W) and Mini-14 (.223)
A little pricier that Scrapper's gun, but without the pistol grip they are Cali legal.
Also, these guys:
Sell the 995 with a "bullet button", which makes the gun Cali legal because it takes a tool (in this case a bullet) to remove the mag, thus defeating the Cali "assault weapon" definition!
Where did you get the price quotes you used? Checking the Hi-point website the TSFG has a MSRP of 297.. I'd love to only spend 220 on it.
purchased at Cabela's in East Hartford CT. 219.99 + tax.
Cabela's website lists them at 249.99, but mine was on sale. If you shop around, you can find them. Even gunbroker has them going for 209.
Never pay MSRP for a gun.
Thanks scrapper! I am heading out to the store right now on lunch to see if they have any used / on sale. I want this gun so bad.
