I got one.
I have fed thousands of rounds through it of every type; steel case, hollow point, ball, etc. of every brand, from AMC to Z-Max and all in between. I have yet to have any pistol-related problems (you do have the occasional bad rounds, but obviously that's not the gun's fault). It eats anything I put through it.,
$330 is a perfect price for it; it's lower than what most other places charge.

Here is a friend shooting mine:

The cool thing is that it can use most Hi-Power mags as well.
Here's my range report:

I don't own one, but have read a few reports on them and they seem to do a pretty good job of putting them together. I have yet to see one in the gun stores around me though.

Oh, I can't believe I forgot this being the mod lol, this is the Hi-Point Discussion Forum, so I'm gonna move this into the General Firearms Discussion Forum.

Hipointer, they're Bulgarian. I've always said, if Bulgaria can make two things, it's women and guns; I'm lucky enough to have both lol. Their quality control standards are very high and they never cut corners.

For the price I would say its an excellent fire-arm and well-made. Most eastern block and European fire-arms are of excellent quality. I say go for it!
