Hi Point Smackdown ( cont. )
To catch you up to speed. Multigun blogger Justin threw down a challenge to all the Hi Point fans. Send him a gun to shoot in competition and if it holds its own, he will speak of the virtues of the Hi Point platform.
From what I saw and handled. The gun is pretty solid. It has two color sights to distinguish the front sight from the rear. It is big on top, but I would think that is because of the direct blowback design and the weight is needed in the slide. The mag release was pretty easy to manipulate, but the mags did not come flying out like some other brands. The trigger travel seemed long and kind of squishy. There is a magazine disconnect. Six additional mags came with the gun. They are of the 10round variety with ext. basepads.
The gun pointed low for me and I needed to adjust my grip to be able to align the sights. I wanted to see how the gun came apart but found you needed to drive a pin out in the rear of the frame to do so and I didn’t have any tools on hand.
Hopefully sometime this week, I can catch up with Justin and see how the gun does in live-fire.
Stay tuned for more.
