An update on an ugly but reliable design. Im sorta liking it. Definitely has enough space for all the Doo-Dads Arfcomers like. The 9mm is currently available. A 40 SW is supposed to be available next month and a 45 ACP version is due out in August. At $275 MSRP this might make a perfect truck gun.









Barrel length: 16.5" Weight: 7 lbs. Capacity: 10-shot magzine standard
Overall length: 31" Stock: All-weather, black molded polymer Sights: Fully-adjustable



All Hi-Point carbines are +P rated to accept all factory ammunition and feature:

All-weather, black polymer skeletonized stock 100% American-made parts and assembly
Sling, swivels and scope base
Internal recoil buffer in stock Last round lock open
Multiple Picatinny rails Optional forward folding grip
Quick on/off thumb safety Optional flashlight
Grip-mounted clip release Optional laser



I am not going to go overboard and state that I can overpower a Silverback Gorrilla, but I will tell you, I will absolutely make a Chimpanzee tap out in under 30 seconds.

When somone says truck gun I think of a gun that has a purpose. Not a pistol caliber piece of crap that a company hung more toys on to make it look tacticool.


PS I had one of their standard ones in 9mm. I had to return it because the seam in the plastic on the gun seperated.

I didn't do it.

Those are a nice gun, and the fold in half feature makes it so much more stowable. I just wish they'd update the mold to add one small rail area for a light in the front, though it's easy enough to drill and mount some rail pieces on it.

The original version is better looking (if that is even possible). Have shot them a few times. Never any functional issues, but the single stack mag is retarded.

I've probably shot tens of thousands of rounds through one of the originals without so much as a hiccup that wasn't operator error. They're cheap, fun, reliable carbines. I don't know that the new design is up my alley, the ATI stock on the original give them a nice look and a good solid feel, a huge improvement over the ugly factory stock.

Still ugly as sin.

BUT. having owned one, It was reliable and accurate and over all a fantastic rifle.

I sold it because my Kel-Tec Sub2k works the same, uses Glock mags, and fits in a backpack.

This has to be fairly recent. When introduced they made a deal with California to sell there if they made a proprietary ten round mag. It had something to do with the mag fitting into the handle if I remember correctly.

I have a very old carbine in 9mm. It's ugly as sin and the factory stock is flimsy and fragile (I replaced it with the much tougher ATI stock). However, it's reliable as hell. It's the only autoloader I own that has never jammed.

I'd probably have one it it took a high cap mag I already use. If it took Glock mags I would have one. If it took S&W mags I probably would. On the other hand with their single stack mag it's not going to happen. What's the point of a low cap single stack mag pistol caliber carbine which uses a different mag than my pistol? This is something that Kel-Tec got right. On the other hand, if the mag isn't going to match my pistol it had better hold 25 - 30+ rounds of ammo. That's where my 9mm AR comes in.

would I sell my Colt or RRA 9mms for one ? no but they work well and are worth more than the cost IMO

I had exactly that happen guy stuck 3 bullets in a 40 caliber carbine barrel
bulged it a bit
Hi point rebuilt the thing no questions asked and sent him a new sling , scope mount and magazine back with it to boot

their pistols are shit but if I was young and broke I would be all over a Hi Point rifle
