    If you bought the weapon NIB, you might have the same problem I did. The original factory mag releases had a metal foot and a plastic plunger. Mind broke around the 3000 round mark. I now have a new one from the factory that's solid metal and it's great. Take your weapon apart and look at the mag release. If it's broken, Hi-Point will replace it for free.
     
  4. Thank you - My mag lock in side of the gun was broken.

    I find that the gun jamms a lot with umc fmj ammo is this commn or is it the gun, or clip?


    Quick fact: this gun was used in coliumbine school shooting. EEE scarry stuff huh i hope no retard ever gets this gun banned.

    I may be wrong I thought it was the 995 the 9mm carbine used. Also they ARE trying to ban this fine weapon in the next AWB :cry:
