    1st review

    Great little weapon. Very low cost and very accurate out to 50 plus yards. Makes a good little entry weapon or something extra to throw in your patrol car. This weapon comes with a life time NO questions asked warranty.

    Hi-point weapons are junk. I have seen WAY too many failures. This is not something I would be my life on, or even a competition.

    Absolute trash. I would rather have a case of the clap, than a case of brand new Hi Point's of any variation or configuration!

    I cannot believe this weapon is even on this list. This is the cheapest piece of junk that i am sorry to say was made in the USA. if I could give it less than one star I would. My neighbor brought one and the thing misfires every third or forth round. A total waste of good money. Like grandad used to say, "If the cost is cheap, then usually the product is cheap".

    Only those who actually own this firearm should post reviews. Too much second hand bad info can come from those who want to be seen as the elite. I just picked this firearm up at the local Cincinnati gun show and ran 300 rounds thru it with no failures and shoots point of aim at about 50 yards spot on. As a NRA certified instructor and reserve MP I have a large and long history with firearm and training. This .40S+W carbine is a fine and handy weapon right out of the box. Even my BUSHMASTERs ( of which I have 3) had some problem during the intial break in. The HiPoint has not. Do your self a favor, find out for your self, at a little over $220 with 3 mags, what can you loose. You will get a better look at things when your nose is not in the air ( and a better sight picture)

    Again a pristine rifle for both target shooting as well as home protection. The accuracy of this rifle is amazing. However it does have fall backs such as effective distance. However I feel that the size and build far surpasses the current M4 and M16A2 for use in close quarters situations.

    Great weapon. This little rifle survived my house fire, where it was in the same room as a melted tv, stereo system and everything else! With hardley any maintance I cleaned it up, had it inspected and it still shot like the day I bought it! I have put hundreds if not thousands of rounds threw it. Never jammed once! For all of you who stick your nose up at it, sorry for your luck.For all of you who says it jams every other round, try cleaning it. Acurate up to 50yds, excellent entry gun, ecspecially with red dot sights or laser.

    This gun is a piece of junk. My friend bought one a week ago, and it wont feed right, it jams constantly, and most of the time the it wont even shoot. And I only gave it one star because I had to.

    I have a Hipoint 9mm carbine. I was very surprised at how accurate it is. It has never misfired or jammed. I put a Red Dot scope on it and it shoots a 1 inch circle at 50 yards.I have found out that most of the bad reviews have come from people that have never shot a HiPoint.

    I remember when these POP (piece of plastic) came out (9mm version). Everyone in our academy went out and bought one...'cept me. A few years later I was looking for a plinking rifle and bought one. I was impressed of the quality for the money. I have had it 9 years and put lots and lots of rounds through it and it has never jammed or misfired once. That's right not once. I carry one in the back of my patrol unit as a JIC weapon (just in case). Hopefully, I'll never have to use it and as soon as the department can afford to get some decent rifles, I'll continue to keep it with me.

    I too just purchased one-$125.00 used in the pawn shop-.40cal s&w. spare clips. optional scope-
    strange looking thing, looks like it belongs in a kids toybox!
    Good, for home defense,-but still will trust the 12ga for that.

    Let it be known, i don't personally 'Like' this gun, it's an ugly, cheap beast... with that said i have to wonder about some of the reviewers who's 'Friends' bought it and it doesn't feed, have you tried better ammo? Cheaper ammo? Are you using FMJ or HP?

    when the 'Feeding' is the problem my first response has always been to check the Ammo, so far i haven't been proven wrong often enough for me to change that response.

    This is a decent weapon with no major bugs... on the other hands it also has no major (Or minor for that matter) Frills, it is a weapon, that's it's job and it does it well. I wouldn't keep it in my patrol vehicle (You have better things for that position), but i would drop it behind the door of my bedroom or under the seat of my big ol' truck and not worry about it.

    I find it funny that those who badmouth it have never had one, yet those who do own it are extremly pleased with it.

    Whoever has "Friends" or "Friend of a friend" or "my Dads cousins uncles sister has an Ex who owns one" types of review has no credibility. Save your keyboard the wear cause no one is going to put any stock in your oppinion anyways.

    If its jamming all the time on them, tell them to learn how to seat the rounds in a magazine.

    If its yours jamming all the time, learn to seat the rounds.

    After mine didn't feed right once I did some poking around online and found that the angle the first round in the mag has to be seated right or it will throw off the angle of all the rounds below it in the mag and any of them have the chance to jam. So if you dont know how.....hold the mag in one hand befor putting it in the rifle, tap the back-side of the mag against anything a few times to seat all the rounds to the back of the mag.

    Folks in the military tend to do this already because its what most are tought to do befor slaping the mag into the M-16.

    Never had another issue after I started seating the rounds.

    I bought this carbine about 2 years ago, my first firearm. I have many more now but I'll say this. I've put over 2500 rounds through this carbine and it has never jammed, misfired or anything of the such. On another note, i have never cleaned it, yet it still shoots true. It even has a bit of rust on the outer stock. This Firearm is very fun to shot with, cheap ammo, but like many has said, it would not be my first choice in home defense. Pretty much just a cheap back yard gun range fun toy.

    For those of you that think these are junk.Stand in front of me at fiffty yards and see if my gun jams or misfires.These are great,cheap and highly accurate guns that function better than guns costing alot more.

    I saw this receive a good review here.
    These are all part of a new class of "handy-rifles which are really just extended barrel rifle-ized semi-automatic pistols.

    The people giving them poor reviews are not doing so for proper reasons. They have not given any indication that they have proper knowledge of ammo which would be very important in such a customized pistol/rifle. Keeping in mind the extended barrel would cause a good 20-30% increase in muzzle velocity and pressure over the standard 4" pistol barrel plain lead nosed rounds should probably be avoided. They will leave lead traces in the barrel and likely result in the jams and sticking being reported.

    FMJ (target distance) or JHP (self defense) would probably be best choices for these type of guns. Now once we have determined the "reviewers" have this basic knowledge of ammunition under their belts and they have tried a variety of ammo to determine the best ammo for this rifle?

    I'd love to find an alternative to full weight full sized remington 750 30-06 or other 50-150 yard deer/hog/moose rifle. I'm looking at these and the Beretta CX4 Storm.

    Please keep reviews useful so when I check back maybe I can learn something here.

    I would LOVE to hear some 75-100 yard reviews saying stuff like Oh yeah I fired a box of Fiocchi Extrema .40 S&W XTP's through it at 75 yards and my grouping was 3" or 5" etc. Anything else is plain not useful for everyone else.

    Thank you very much.
