Hi Guys, I am new to this forum, and new to Hi-Points.
I just bought my first Hi-Points this week - got a 995 and a 9c. I bought them used from a guy who said he only cleaned the barrel and had never broken them down for a complete cleaning. I thought that was pretty lazy of him until I researched the breakdown procedures and found that you need half a toolbox just to get the thing apart! It took me a long time to break down, clean and reassemble these two guns! I own a whole safe full of other guns, and none of them are this hard to clean. I imagine I will be just using a bore snake for quick cleaning after short shooting sessions, and then occasionally breaking it down for a full clean. I sure won't do it every time, or the gun just won't get shot. >
Oh well. I still haven't shot either one yet. Hopefully this weekend the weather will be nice enough to give them a try.
