goog le: pretty much all bad rap videos here on the tube regarding hipoints are
perpetuated by people defending them. Just about every hipoint video starts
out with with negative stuff and then the defense of them. I'd like to see
videos that are just about hipoints and review them just like any other
decent firearm and stop with the negative intros. I have one and it works
sysjls75: Hi-Point definitely has gotten its share of negative comments. These
comments are generated by people who want to defend their purchase of a
more expensive firearm and the typical gun shop owner who doesn't like to
sell Hi-Points because their margins are so low. I have never had an issue
with these guns. You do need to polish the feed ramp and check for chipping
paint. The only real negative is the weight of the pistol. It would be a
chore to carry these guns for PP. Cracks in slides and frames can happen
with any pistol over time and one needs to inspect their firearms
regularly. The grips are a little slick and that can be taken care of with
powermugu: Makes sense. Thank you :)
Linda Gallagher: If your grip is wrong the gun will jam (stove pipe ) you need to make your
wrist stronger by doing a simple exercise. Other wise use a baseball bat. a
SouthernDemocrat: Carried a Hi Point JHP45 in the Navy on 3 deployments NEVER JAMMED i
escorted Marine Enginers In Helmand Province Afghanistan twice and Korengal
FuYing Bro: the 9mm case came with the pistol from hi point the .45 i got at local
Shantra Mulani: I have expensive guns and also a hi-point. that high point sure is accurate
and dependable for sure.
FuYing Bro: no problem. cases can be pretty cheap to heck of expensive. i think the one
i got for the .45 was only 10 bucks on sale. but i have seen metal fancy
ones for 200. so shop around. can't see spending more on a case than the
lildnbalive: Maybe hi point targets people with no income
FuYing Bro: sounds good thanks for watching
FuYing Bro: Awesome. We just started having an issue with my wife's c9. It was on its
1,700 or so round through it and was not jamming but not closing all the
way. It was user error. Last time my wife cleaned it she didn't oil the
rails at all. I noticed she didn't but it was all pinned up so if thought I
was able to get some to seep in from the outside. I was wrong. Once we
opened her up and oiled the rails she rail perfect again.
smorrow0816: How in the world does holding it correctly relate to the gun jamming? If
you pull the trigger....it should fire. Not sure I got you there.
FuYing Bro: awesome
shooter77us: That's odd, because my brother and my father both own hi-point c9s and they
both work flawlessly. What made yours trash?
FuYing Bro: @1985BigWheels well since you are paraplegic you most likely have really
strong wrists so limp wristing shouldnt be too much on an issue. watch some
videos on proper hand placement and gripping. this is most important on
blowback pistols. next make sure you have good springs in your magazines,
polish your feed ramp, and make sure your mag lips are in the right
placement. i will do a video very soon on all of this. i have severe DDD
and have been unable to do so lately.
FuYing Bro: thanks
lildnbalive: Hi point made it trash
Alan Nunnally: I love mine I got it about two months ago shoots great I'm thinking about
getting one for my daughter . Great choice if you don't have a lot of money
FuYing Bro: i actually have seen a glock jam from limp wristing. my dad is pretty old
and has week wrists. he got one and it would jam almost every time. he now
has had to stay with revolvers. its at least something. With all the
firearms i own i still use a revolver for home defense just because of the
reliability. And it is damn scarey looking LOL
sua xiong: this gun is good.
MR-FLIP: verry tru with gripping its a blow back gun you must hold tight when i
first bought my high point 45 i held loose like i do my 22 pistol an it
jamed but hang tight an no issues
FuYing Bro: I believe i go over this in the video. I explain it in more details on my
video "limp wristing" search for it on my main channel page. Just put "limp
wristing" in the search field.
RonJohn63: I know why grip affects accuracy, but why affect jamming?
FuYing Bro: Nothing to do with hand size. It has to do with your grip. Most the issues
people will have with a pistol like this is limp wristing. Try filming your
self from the side some time and watch the reaction in slow motion and see
if you are letting your wrist take the recoil or if you are letting the
slide do its job. If you find you are not limp wristing try to polish your
feed ramp or try a stronger load. Hi points have heavy slides and light
load will cause jams
FuYing Bro: are the other pistols you are firing recoil activated or blow back
operated. You said you are not that experience with pistols. Hi points are
great for first time users to see if they are doing something called Limp
Wristing. If your magazine is in great shape and the slide is moving back
and for with out issue then you may be limp wristing. Next time you go out
try to pay attention to the strength in your wrist and let your elbows do
the work to take the recoil.
J. Dalton: Man limpwristing is what people use when they really dont what going
on.Easy to say..YOU WAS LIMPWRISTING IT!.No can you really amagine a world
where if you didnt hold your gun rite it would jamm.Go on my page i bust
the !!limpwrist!! B.S..And it not no gay crap about ramps or feedlips..Its
the owner are mostly first timers and dont have the knoledge like you..To
relize it mag springs are weak out the box..Thats it!!..nothing les..
FuYing Bro: The sccy is a better choice but don't blame the gun just because you were
incompetent dissembling a firearm. I would hate to see what you say if you
ever tried to fully take apart and put together an ar15 bolt carrier group.
CreativeConscious00: any competent gunsmith can increase reliability of any firearm even if just
slightly, being based soley on the design
Patrick Cox: NIce Video. I have the 9mm but have not had a chance to shoot it yet.
FuYing Bro: Why would I say the Sccy is a better choice if I was working for hi point.
I have over 3,000 rounds through my .45 with out one issue. Yes stuff can
and will fall out during disassemble if you are not careful or if you took
the pistol grips off for some reason. I have taken I do some gun smiting
work and not all gun smiths are the brightest creatures and they don't know
everything about every firearm.
Garry Reynolds: Thanks for your views on the hipoint bud. Im a glock fan but I just bought
one of these hipoints for my gf and I must say its built pretty good for a
FuYing Bro: did i infer that hi-points are crap.
FuYing Bro: Agreed the roll pin is one major pain in the butt the deal with and with
they would go with a different way. But over 3,000 rounds and not one jam I
would have to say I would trust if if i needed to. Do I still have it yes.
Do I use it in self defense, no. But if it was my only choice, yes. If you
want perfection you are not going to stick with a sccy you are going to be
looking into a $6,000 and up piece.
Francisco Compean: ive bought 4 hi-point and 3 came with crap mags but the guns were better
than i expected
Dan63558: are u kidding me, about 6 different parts fell off when i was just cleaning
it gently, i knew what i was doing, they are junk, and even if yours is
working now put another 1000 rds through and see what happens, my own
gunsmith had problems with it, what does that tell u, you gotta work for hi
point your crackin me up, lol
FuYing Bro: Correct
FuYing Bro: any gun can have this type of feeding issue. watch my latest video
explaining what limp wristing is.
J. Dalton: You i was looking forward to proving you wrong on limpwristing..But after
you said CLIPS.Its just worth to me..Because i relize that you need take
A.G.I coarse like have to understand how dumb limpwristing sound..We never
study that subject in my classes..What if someone came in my shop and i say
that..Lol..You really have to that good for it work?.Let me work your mag
springs..Youll will blow any other gun out the water.
Angie Nunn: We own 2 c9mm both were bought used for less $100 a piece (legal purchase )
Hi point has supplied the new parts to up date the firing spring free of
charge. Great customer service. I polished the feed ramp with fin grit
sandpaper and no jams
AnotherDayInTheDitch: All Hi-Point pistols are blowback operated. If your sissy wrist jumps back
when firing, that force is lost and won't properly cycle the slide.
rockriver15: really. you going to tell a bad guy to hold on while i get proper grip so
my gun wont jam. i dont think so buy a better gun people
AnotherDayInTheDitch: It will cycle just fine. Parabellum, luger, 9x19..... It's all the same
with exception to the nato round having maybe a bit more chamber pressure
but not +P pressures.
Eric Sposito: Great information. You will never convert the haters. I own both of these
as well. I had mag issues with the 9mm but I fixed them. I havent had one
issue with the 45. They are the best in their price range, and I have out
shot $800 dollar pistols with my Hi Point 45.
CrazedLostFan: The word cheap brings the sense of it being junk, you should consider it an
inexpensive gun rather than "it's a cheap gun"
john ringo: i think about getting one every now n then, but when i bring it up, my ffl
starts laughing at me. i hate that!
FuYing Bro: thanks you sir
MouseFrogToad: My High Point 9mm jams constantly. Nutnfancy had to have the one he tested
fixed before reviewing on YouTube. I'm not that experienced, but I can fire
other handguns without issue. A new gun should not need fixed right away.
High Point has a lifetime warranty, and Nutnfancy says they have great
support and the gun is accurate. To busy to call the factory, but I should
get it to fire right or dump it for something reliable. Don't want to
wonder if I am holding it right if it is needed...
Dan63558: i just think after all these years people having problems with them youd
think theyd switch uo the machinery process and make it a bit more basic to
take apart like the sccy cpx 2 for example, that pin is also a pain in the
ass, no hard feelings though, i was told to clean it with crc brake cleaner
and not to take it apart thats all i know, to me guns are all about
perfection, you get what u pay for, and in this messed up economy maby hi
points not a bad choice, would i trust my life on it? no
FuYing Bro: sounds great thanks for watching
baloney720: Good review. I plan on getting a hipoint 45 myself. But I will just say I
have never had, or seen a jam from a glock limp wristing. I owned a glock
45 a long time ago, and wish I still had it, but I can't afford one right
now, and plan on getting one of these ugly donkey leg bricks lol. Heard
nothing but good things about the 45s.
