Default Basic Hi-Point Pistol Take Down Guide.

By using the following, you imply that you are able to follow gun safety rules, and that you are able to use basic hand tools without inflicting great bodily harm on yourself or others…


HiPoint Pistols 101

======================================

Disassembly

Basic tools needed:


1/8" pin punch (tight fit)
3/32" pin punch (looser fit)
1/16" pin punch (tight fit)
3/16" pin punch (tight fit)
ball pein hammer
bench blocks (hockey pucks)
3/32" Hex key/allen wrench
1/8" flat screwdriver

-------------------------------------


1. Make sure gun is unloaded.



1.5 This shows the slide retainer in the rear of the slide.



2. Pull slide back and engage safety.



3. Punch out roll pin with the punch.







4. Pull slide back and lift up. Watch out for the recoil spring under the barrel in the front.

That is basic HiPoint pistol disassembly.


Reassembly



When you go to reassemble the pistol, the slide retainer goes down in the hole indicated.



Once you have reassembled the pistol, pull the slide back a couple times, and test for function with a snap cap.



------------



Proper location of the guide rod.

================================================== =================================

HiPoint Pistols 201

Advanced disassembly:







5. Sear is removed by tipping the cam slightly to the right (or removing it). Then, the sear can be lifted up and out.

THE DROP SAFETY

This is a necessary assembly. It helps to keep you pistol from firing if it is dropped. I advise dropping it to see if it really works.











6. Underneath the sear, is the counterweight pivot pin. The counterweight is removed through the magazine well. (Flat side goes down.)

THE EJECTOR





7. This is the ejector pivot pin. It should be driven towards the top of the slide to remove it. When you remove the punch from the hole, watch out for the spring that is behind the ejector. Reinstall the pin from the top.

------------

Right side



The magazine lockout fits with the “_” part of the “L” at the bottom. The little wire spring fits with the “_” part of the “L” in the little hole in the magazine release button. To remove the grip, lift the top of it up a little, and then lift the grip towards the top of the pistol.

===========================================

Basic operation



5. Without a magazine in the pistol, the place indicated by the arrow fits in the notch (D), and blocks the trigger and sear cam from operating (C). When you insert a magazine, it is pushed up, allowing the trigger and sear to operate. The trigger linkage (A) pushes down on the cam (B), which pulls down on the sear. This allows the firing pin to advance forward, and strike the primer.



Picture of safety engaged. The safety prevents the sear from falling.

==========================================

Other information

Ghost Ring Sight Installation



To remove open sight from sight base:
1. Use allen wrench and screwdriver to remove rear sight from slide. Place screws and elevation spring to the side.
2. Turn windage screw counterclockwise until open sight releases from left side of sight base



To install ghost ring sight:



1. With inset (counter bore) side towards you, start ghost ring into the key hole slot in the

left side of the sight base. Turn windage screw clockwise to center.
2. Reinstall ghost ring and sight base back into the slide, being careful to properly align the elevation spring.

Do NOT over tighten the elevation screw.

----------------



New models have a chamber observation port.

-----------------



Barrel assembly

-----------------

9mm Data





------------------
Magazines



The 8 round magazines will not work in the carbine because they are shorter.



Left to right: 8 round pistol, 10 round pistol, 10 round carbine. The 10 round pistol magazine has a block on the bottom to help prevent it from pivoting in the magazine well. The carbine magazines are capable of being inserting in the magazine well of the pistol, but may not feed reliably.



The feed lips appear to be the same.

Part I

In an effort to ensure this useful initial post remains useful, I am copying the image files from photobucket to local forum server so that should the OP ever decide to remove them from photobucket, the images will remain available.

Think of this post as an "image bank" for the initial post.

I will then re-edit the OP and use local linked images instead of photobucket.

Peace favor your sword,
Kirk

I intend to do so, time permitting, as a Premium Membership benefit as I did with the C9 Trigger Job and like the HPFF Cheapskates Guide to Gun Cleaning and Maintenance (which is actually an ePub).
