I don't care what anyone says........Hi-Point carbines are DA BOMB. Went to the range today. Had to tweak one of the mags, but after that it went bang every time. Started out at 15 yards off hand. Every shot was in a 3x5" oval on the target.
Don't even hesitate, if you find a deal on one, get it. You will not be disappointed.
That's the same story I saw. I hang out at the Hi-Point forum & it has been discussed there too.
I have the 380 pistol. It is a decent truck gun. No real issues with any of them. Not sure if I would get the 380 carbine, but they're so cheap, why not? I like having a safe full, so I don't always go for the highest quality to achieve quantity.
