Hi-Point generally produces inexpensive and simple guns. The company does not believe in making good-looking guns. Their motto is to produce guns that would perform when required without giving any problems and their indifference to the looks to the guns makes it possible for them to sell the guns at prices lower than one may think.
They have slides that are larger than the other guns in the similar region and the large slide makes it possible to get the required mass for the proper functioning of the gun. The larger the gun is, lesser it appeals to oneâ€™s eye but there is no problems whatsoever in the functioning area.
The Hi-Point CF-380 and CF-380 Comp has a polymer frame that also features a vital trigger guard and an accessory rail on which a laser sight can be mounted. The barrel is attached permanently to its frame. The recoil spring can be found in a groove below the barrel. A downward expansion of the slide bears upon the spring during recoil. Panels for grip are held at place by tabs and screws on the bottom edges.
Some of the important features of the Hi-Pistol CF-380 are â€“
â€¢ A four-Inch barrel that makes it possible to produce the required velocity of the bullet at the time of firing.
â€¢ The overall length of the pistol is around 7.75 Inches.
â€¢ The pistol weighs around 31 Ounces (another additional 16 ounces if mounted with a laser sight).
â€¢ The magazines can be found with capacities of 8 and 10 rounds.
â€¢ The design of the pistol enhances accuracy while shooting.
â€¢ The pistol has a recoil compensator.
â€¢ The pistol comes with a Hi-Point Tools package for pistol maintenance.
The Hi-Point CF-380 comes with a trigger lock called as Dual Lock. The lock has two halves on either sides of the trigger guard and needs to be locked together with the help of a shaft (spring-loaded) which can be turned by a special 2-prong key. A padlock can also provide additional security for the pistol.
The most important reason of the popularity of the Hi-Point CF-380 and CF-380 Comp models remain in the fact that it is half or in some cases quarter the price of a comparable handgun from another company. In addition, the problem free functioning of the gun gives it the required boost in the sales.
