Headline: 

The Hi-Point .45 is an accurate gun and can be relied on for personal and home defence. The gun is made in America and makes good sense as a car gun.

When the question is of less costly handguns, it is sometimes found that a blocky firearm comes with limited features but they work good enough. A number of less costly handguns perform better than the mid-zone priced handguns.

The more costly handguns performs really well as per their price indicates but the low-end handguns work satisfyingly well in a number of cases. The only difference is the highly priced ones have a better finishing.

When a middle class man feels that he needs a firearm for self-protection, it may be a difficult task for him to find a good gun, as his funds are limited. Only a few of the guns available can suit his budget, all others may just be too costly.

Some laws passed in the recent years were aimed to restrict inexpensive handguns. This hampers the choices of someone with a fixed income or someone with financial problems. Whether the reason to buy a gun is personal security or recreation, one should be able to find a gun to suit his/her pocket.

The Hi-Point .45 is one of such guns. They are trusted to perform when the need arises but if lost or stoles the owner does not suffer a financial set back. Hi-Point is in the market for quite some time now and has gradually built its reputation. Other models like the .380 ACP are also available.

The first impression when someone sees the Hi-Point .45 guns is that it is big! It is around 7.5 inches in length, 6.2 inches in height and has a 4.5 inches long barrel that is enough to build up maximum speed in high performance ammunition. Weighing around 32 ounces, the gun is light for its size.

The Hi-Point .45 is not a Browning-type design. The gun operates on blow back lines similar to a .22-caliber pocket pistol. There is not locking lug, swinging link or tilting barrel.

The pistol has a striker-fired mechanism. There is a safety lock on the side of the gun, which prevent any firing from the gun as long as the lock is on. It also features an internal safety, which prevents sear movement if the gun drops.

The pistol has a black, powder-coat finish that is not that bad looking and performs well against wear and tear. In addition, a trigger lock also comes with the pistol. The cartridge can hold nine rounds of ammunition, which is enough for most use. There is a small space at the back end of the chamber that can confirm if the pistol is loaded at just one look. All these features make it a totally reliable gun.

Hi-Point guns

We see many comments like the one above from ecfalls. We also see comments such as the one from reaper.
I would submit that they can both be true.
Some people have bought Hi-Points that are both accurate and reliable. Some people have bought pure junk.
I don't know enough about firearms design to say anything meaningful or useful. I do know quite a bit about relative execution of manufacture, and about quality control.
It strikes me that if we have many comments from members saying that their Hi-Points work quite well, then we must believe that the basic design is OK - or at least that it's OK for a while. Poor or questionable metallurgy would indicate that the firearms are destined to eventually fail.
Comments from members reporting problems of many kinds points to significant and lamentable lack of attention to consistency of manufacturing excellence and quality control.
Hi-Point firearms are low priced. Many, many people have limited funds. Even as vital as is the protection of oneself and ones loved ones, if one has very little money, one must buy what one can afford.
There would seem to be no way to know if a purchaser will get an accurate, reliable firearm, or one of the ones that can well be described as junk.
I don't know the policy of Hi-Point in standing behind their products; whether their warranties are good or bad.
Would I recommend that someone buy a Hi-Point firearm? Only with strict reservation that the prospective purchaser be very well assured that the manufacturer's warranties are consistently and reliably honored.

Hi-Point Warranty

from their website: "All Hi-Point firearms carry a no questions asked lifetime warranty. Whether you are the original purchaser or a third hand owner, your Hi-pont firearm will be repared free of charge." http://www.hi-pointfirearms.com/

I would have to agree with ecaman's assessment of questionable QC judging from widely varying reports of horrible to great. Their warranty sounds good to me if they stand behind it.

Hi Points

Here's the deal. I know that some people can only afford lower priced firearms. If thats the case, a hi point is better than no gun at all.

When I make statements about guns, whether I think they're great, or junk.... I'm talking about the gun without a price tag on it. I'm comparing the quality of the guns. It doesn't matter if its a $3,000 Wilson, Nighthawk, Les Baer or a $150 Hi Point. I think there are a few other manufacturers that are lower in quality than HP's. Most of them are Saturday night specials like Bryco, Jennings, Lorcin, Raven, Jimenez etc.. I'm comparing a Hi Point against any new production handgun like Glock, Springfield, FNH, S&W, Ruger, CZ, Sig, HK, Kimber, Para,Taurus, Baretta, Armalite, STI, Bersa, Colt, Walther.... you name it. They all get thrown in.

I think HP's fine for a tackle box gun to let a cottonmouth know who's boss, but I personally wouldn't rely on it for the safety of myself or my family. I've never owned one, and never will... but have put about 300 rounds through the .40 handgun and the 9mm carbine. The .40 belonged to a friend. It would only feed FMJ's. He got FTF's every time he loaded JHP's. We tried 4 different manufacturers, same result. Having to rely on FMJ's for defense is something I wouldn't do unless it was a last resort. Eventually the frame cracked on the .40. Of course they have a lifetime warranty, but when your life is on the line.... The carbine just felt sluggish and awkward. It had a terrible trigger, and was picky with ammo also.

So, I would say Hi Points are fine for plinking but I wouldn't recommend that a friend or family member buy one for self defense. This is just my experience and opinion. I'm sure some people will disagree.

hi-points

well i have owned a couple of them and never had any trouble ,but i still would not trust my or my kids life with one. i think they are a nice cheap gun, but that is about it. when people say they have trouble with them what kind of trouble are they talking about? something that is just a quirk or something major that you can't rely on. i believe one should get to know their firearm before relying on it to save your life. i wouldn't trust any gun i haven't used and gotten used to it.

My borther-in-law bought one in 9mm for plinking and has been pretty happy with it, his only complaint is it is very picky about what ammo you feed it. He has not tried HP's as far as I know. I put about 100 roinds of blazer brass fmj's through it and had zero problems of any kind. But I'd have to agree that in the llive or die situation you want a S&W/Glock/CZ/etc.

Nothing is as risky as certain failure.

I bought one for $100

At a pawn shop in TN. I was almost robbed and shot at the night before, and even though it has a bad rep from 50% of the people on here, I like it, I do hate that is too big to carry conservatively.

Anyway, I have put over 1000 round through it and I cant ever remember a jam..I know you wont believe me, but Ill swear to it. Its no Desert eagle or Colt, but It is amazing for the price, I do think that the dinky trigger lock is a hilarious joke (you can cut it off with a knife, or a sharp stick.lol)

Hard to clean, well not hard but a pain in the butt. For those of tou who dont know, you will need a hammer and a tiny screwdriver to open it up..but that aside its easy to clean ant assemble.(I added a pin and bored the hole a little on mine and i can push it out with a knife or nail)

I like it overall, but would obviously prefer something better, as the case with ANYTHING EVER!

I'm not fond of any auto.
They just don't fit my hand like a wheel gun
and a wheel gun never jams.
I had a Colt Gold Cup National Match
and my brother talked me out of it.

Having been a machinist over 30 years
I wonder where they cut cost so much.
Has to be material.
That alone makes me not want one.

But I don't want any of the new poly
guns either. I want some cold steel
in my hand when I go to shoot.

So I'll stay with my wheel guns.

Hey Larry!

The Hipoint is a very basic pistol say the least, but they do function and tend to be accurate. Then again, these days a company would have to pretty much decide to make a weapon not be accurate for it to be a total failure on that point.

I've said it before, I like the thought of a Hipoint as a Boat Gun, or a camp gun. Something that function but you wouldn't be all that upset it if rotted away from Sea Salt. I'd rather it be a Hipoint than say a Sig, HK or Colt...

I'd probably label it a Survival Gun, before a Combat Gun....

and I wouldn't carry it if there was any other option above it.

No sir, he fell into that bullet... Never argue with a stupid person. They'll just drag you down to their level and beat you with experience!!

We have a lot of older guys that come to our range which all have been into shooting for a very long time.

There is even a guy who takes old broken Luger pistols and converts them to .45 acp.

I think the best one out of all the pistols I have shot next to the Sig P210, is a COLT 1911 Government Match .38 SPECIAL Wad Cutter.

Also with Florida being a retirement state, and Saint Petersburg being one of the older areas for retirement. We get a lot of deals that pass through the range from family members and such.

No matter how much we kid each other
you didnt care who brought that air strike
when you called for one and the Navy
supplied boats to transport us,
And it goes on and on.

Amen

Just like we all need each other in this country today. We are different from all other nations and we need to act like it. The citizens like us do act like it; now we have to get the leaders clued in.

Reliability

I have a 9mm carbine and a 45 in the HI-point, and have had them for years, can't remember how long, but i once lost the bolt out of the cocking mechanism on the 9mm and I e-mailed Hi-Point and the sent me a replacement part pronto no charge. I was flabbergasted. No questions ask. Thats why i bought the 45. They both shoot consistantly and I have had no other problem with either. For the price they make a great home defence weapon and mine have been reliable at the range. I've killed all kinds of varmints with the 9mm carbine, put a scope on it and use it to protect my farm animals when needed. They can be carried in my farm truck and I dont have to worry about them gettin ruffed up does'nt seem to hurt them.

Anyway, it's good you have a weapon you enjoy and are confident will do the job for you. I feel the same way about my Raven .25

pearl grips made out of high impact plastic. The gun is chrome plated and engraved. Apparently the previous owner engraved it himself, actually it's more scratched than engraved. It be sayin' "Crips 4 evah". I'm sure I could sell it and get my investment out of it, $25.
You think? Davis & Raven in the same breath? For shame LOL
I almost said trade straight across for a High Point but no, there's sentimental value attached.

Magnum41, I'm just playing a game that's been played on this board for a long time. Don't take it or me seriously, okay?
Welcome aboard !!

This was back a year or so. Guy was trying to sell his raven 25.. said it might have collector value as it was two toned.. Can't remember the price.. 125 150 maybe.. Don't think he had any takers..

I remember that one... lol

Ravens biggest issue is going bang every time. If you have one that will do that then your in. Should say the Firing Pin style, not the Striker Fired, there was a 9 mm went all Paranormal on a guy and his friend. His wife got lucky and didn't get shot, but he laid it on the bench loaded and cocked, stepped away from it so his friend could shoot it and before his friend got near it. The hammer dropped on it's own and it emptied the mag while spining around on the counter wounding the owner and I think the friend also.

Though that might have been a Jennings?

ISD.. you're right..

Think it was a Jennings not a Raven..

Not sure if your talking about the gun that decided to take matters into it's own hand, or the one that was the "collector".. But believe the one advertised might have been a Jennings

love that "went all paranormal'.. look for that to be used in a Forum post just as soon as i have time to type one up... went all paranormal.. ha ha great.. Not so grand is the picture of the 9 spinning and shooting..

Hi-Point

I've shot and owned Hi-Point 9mm pistol and carbine and the .380 version. They're bricks, but they're awesomely accurate and inexpensive and you can't argue with the warranty that comes with them.
