I've seen the ads, looked at the web sight, heard all the praises. I want to know who has one and what do you think? Would you get one again? Would you trade one of your other handguns for it? What kind of accuracy do you get with it at 25yds off a rest? Would you get a 9mm or the new .40s&w? The price sure seems right; I just want to know if it lives up to its rep. My other lust for a another pistol is a Beretta 92fs. How in your opinion do they compare? guns762

I just saw one on the net, nice looking and only $299.95. I will check one out at the gun show this weekend, as for the Beretta 92fs, it is the best quality handgun I own. I have 3 Berettas, 1 HK, 1 Glock, and a SW

Ive got one. IMO they are an excellent pistol. The first time I ever shot one, I put 10 rounds w/in 3" at 15yds. I was sold. Ive only got ~150 rounds through mine, but no hiccups so far, very reliable, very well balanced, very well built (the slide rails are huge), fully supported chamber. For a sub $300 pistol I don't think you can go wrong. Reverend73

Yes I have one and it is my favorite 9MM pistol, and is better than any Glock 17 or 19 I have ever owned, or shot. Period. When the .45ACP comes out, i'm buying 2. It is a $600.00 pistol for under $300.00. It makes guys who own Glock 9MM's whine and bitch. Better trigger (BIG TIME), better Ergonomics (IMO, but arugable), and just as accurate and reliable. Oh yeah. BTW. I currently own a G17, and have owned 2 others (17's) and 1 19 in the past. The HS is better.

Bought one from Leigh Taylor at Glocktalk and have been very impressed with it. But the best part is that you can use pre-ban Taurus mags which is quite easy to find. The downside is that there is no Fobus Holster available for it. Really do not like to spend $70 for a $269 handgun. get one.....you will not regret it.
Link Posted: 7/17/2001 3:30:39 PM EDT
I have the 9mm Best pistol I've ever owned accurate,and reliable I've put over 1000 rounds through it havn't had a malfunction yet. I got it for $275 It definently live up to every good thing you've heard about it.

My boss just bought one, and I have fired it 100's of times in the last month. fit and finish is 1st rate, trigger is smooth as silk, it feeds ANYTHING you put in the mag and I can rapid fire 10 rounds into a playing card all day long at 7 yards. Anything else you need to know?
Link Posted: 7/17/2001 3:57:38 PM EDT
riddler, What model Taurus mags fit? It's a great gun but I want higher capacity.

I've heard that the high cap mags for the Taurus PT92, Beretta 92F, Sig P226 and S&W 5906 can be adapted to lock and feed with minimal work. Some, I'm not sure which, protrude from the grip approximately 1/8" - 3/8".

If only I could find a lady that works this well and only cost that much... Anyway its a fine pistol, I almost bought a second one. The prices are going to stay low until the 40cal comes out in Sept. Then they are going to go up. (2yrs until the 45 I heard):( The best mags we found over at hs2000talk.com is the S&W 59 series pro-mag 15 rd. The got the right length and only take 5 minutes to drill. Worldskipper out.

My beretta 92 FS is the only semi auto that has not had a jam. I use USA mags, I put hollow points,FMJ everything. The gun just doesn't jam. Not a stove pipe nothing. I can't tell you enough never a jam. Very reliable for CCW. By the way it is based on the P-38 design of the open slide. That is why the P-38 is a great gun. Better then the Luger, that is why it replaced the Luger. The Luger still is more desireable for collectors.

Damn, is this true? I was SERIOUSLY considering getting an HS2000 in .40S&W later this year, and was expecting the price to still be somewhere in the $300 range. Is there any chance of saving up some spare cash, getting them fresh off the line, and spending at least [i]closely[/i] to what you guys have for your 9mm's? So much for a good, $300 .40 [:\] [brown]Evil Jewbroni~[/brown]

They are already taking pre-orders for the .40's at $289.00 Go to either [url]www.hs2000talk.com[/url] or [url]www.sigtalk.com[/url] to find out who. I forgot off the top of my head.

Southern Ohio Guns has them for 249.00! I think I'm sold. My birthday is in a couple of weeks, might have to reward my self. I have one more question. 9mm or 40? I already own a Russian Mak and several SA's in much larger calibers. I like the idea of cheap ammo in the 9mm. Am I giving up alot going with the 9mm? guns762
Link Posted: 7/17/2001 6:29:48 PM EDT
I want to know who has one
View Quote
I do.
and what do you think?
View Quote
I think I like it. :-)
Would you get one again?
View Quote
Definitely.
Would you trade one of your other handguns for it?
View Quote
I would never trade my Glock19 or it. I just like the glock better. Perhaps it because it's earned my respect... thru so many chewed up targets.
What kind of accuracy do you get with it at 25yds off a rest?
View Quote
I got 3" groups the first day from a sandbag. Haven't tried since. It is not quite as accurate as my Glock. But very close. I am not sure if it is me, but it seems to "throw" one out of the group every so often.... Trigger does not always feel the same to me... buy again, could be me. However, my Glock feels the same every single time.
Would you get a 9mm or the new .40s&w?
View Quote
9mm.
The price sure seems right; I just want to know if it lives up to its rep. My other lust for a another pistol is a Beretta 92fs.
View Quote
I shoot my partner's 92FS all the time. A little bulky feeling... nice trigger, more perceived recoil than I'd expect, sights are better for long range shots. Nice pistol as well.
How in your opinion do they compare?
View Quote
Apples and oranges. The Beretta is a large framed, all metal, tried and true, $500 pistol. The HS is a med frame, polymer, glock/sig copy, untested, and sub-$300 cheap (but impressive) You make the choice. Put over 600 now thru the HS... went bang every time.
Link Posted: 7/17/2001 7:53:55 PM EDT
guns762, It depends on what your shooting. Plinking and competition 9mm. Carry gun and self defense 40s&w
Link Posted: 7/18/2001 12:05:25 AM EDT
It dont take much to talk me into a new gun, I will look for one this weekend at the gun show.
Link Posted: 7/18/2001 12:22:39 AM EDT
[img]http://wsphotofews.excite.com/023/gZ/zz/ko/ab92800.jpg[/img] I've been raving about this gun for so long, i'm really sick of typing the same stuff over and over and over again. I will just say this. This is the only gun in the world I would ever swear on the bible that whoever buys it will like it. 100% for sure. Yes, the above pistol is better then my Glock 17. I hate to abmit it (Considering what I paid for my G17) but this little $270.00 gem is truly the best buy in handgun land to come along in a looooooong time.
Link Posted: 7/18/2001 8:32:22 AM EDT
Want one! Can't get one though. If they ever make it into Massachusetts or when I move out of this state then I'll buy one in an instant. What bugs the hell out of me is that HS Arms has already made CA and MD compliant HS2000s. Do they have ANY idea how much business they'd do in Massachusetts if they made a MA-compliant one? The only new pistols we can get here are S&W's, some Sigs, and the Walther P99. Used Glocks and HKs are going for well over $600. HS could make a killing in this state selling brand new guns with such a great rep for half of what the used Glocks are going for...

Yes. S&W 59 and Taurus/Beretta's will once you drill the new mag catch... and they function flawlessly.. Go to [url]www.hs2000talk[/url] or [url]www.sigtalk.com[/url] to get complete directions...
Link Posted: 7/19/2001 2:40:54 PM EDT
So which cartridge is more accurate, 9mm or .40 ? What are the magazine capacities for each, is there a hi-cap mag in .40 that will fit the HS2000. And lastly, what can I expect to pay for a HS2000 in .40 ? Thanks!

Link Posted: 7/20/2001 5:05:41 PM EDT
Hmmm never really looked at getting a pistol before, but after hearing all this good stuff about a pistol that some claim to better than glocks then this is worth a shot at. Plus under $300 can't pass that up.
Link Posted: 7/20/2001 9:39:32 PM EDT
Well I have praised this pistol in the past on here so again I will say its the best ~$300 spent on a pistol. I bought one for my sister to start learning the addiction of shooting. Between my sister and I we have put around 500 rounds through it without a malfunction. Even if you don't plan to get one as a carry gun buy one for a car gun. It is good enough to be a carry gun, in fact I think it is more comfortable than a Glock19 in which it resembles. Not that a gun should necessarily be comfortable, but comforting. No Slack!

For those in California, I had a tough time finding anyone at the local Gun shops (visited 4 Gun stores) none of them knew anything about the HS 2000. No one had even heard of the pistol. Most of the time they would flip open the SB-15 notebook and say "Sorry not in book, can't get it for ya". I've asked them to look under HS Arms & Intrac. "Nope not in here... I finally found it online, it's under the manufacture [b]"IM Metal"[/b]. [url]http://caag.state.ca.us/firearms/certlist.htm[/url]
There is 1 matching record for [b]IM Metal[/b]. This list is valid for Monday July 23, 2001 Model Gun Type Barrel Length Caliber [u][b]HS 2000[/b][/u] / Steel, Polymer Pistol 4.08" 9 mm

I've got Turner's Outdoorsman trying to locate one for me now. Don't know about price yet... I'll keep you updated for the Cali folks. I already have 4 Glocks (G21, G22, G23, G27) and didn't want to get a fifth. I just wanted an inexpensive 9mm. Cool thing is that the same M3 Tactical light for my Glocks, will also work on this pistol. Thanks for the heads up, just when I was looking for an inexpensive 9mm. :D

I read somewhere that the slides on these were castings. Would one of you owners out there do a magnet test and see it its ferrous?(magnetic)And does it seem like a gun that will hold up to abuse? picked up my paperwork today for another permit and am seriously considering one of these pistols. The cast slide makes me wary tho. Synweap223 Out!

I have the 9mm. I shoot it and love it. No complaints at all. Looking forward to getting the 40 soon. Oh what the heck, the 357 and 45 to. HS2000 the HeartBreak of Clock's at half the price. Now if you want a good price and great service, go to GunBroker and look up youngsguns. Not affilated other than a happy customer.
