Is it just me or does this slide look a lot like a Hi-Point?

    The shape of the nose is what really does it.

    kinda boxy like one.
     

  3. sorry I really see no resemblence at all. Not near as boxy as my .40S&W, and the ejection port is atop the slide not just on the side as a H-P is.

    Nah, not even close.

    Well a little... But if you laid them side by side there would be a big difference

    Once you've handled one (i have) you'd realize that there is a VAST difference. The HK pistol pictured uses a stamped sheet metal slide with a roller locking system similar to that of the company's G3 automatic rifle. The slide itself is only about 1/16" thick stampings that attach to a seperate breechblock that actually closes the chamber.

    The HP slide is a casting held closed by inertia and the recoil spring.

    The similarities cosmetically are striking but just cosmetic.

  6. I'm sorry, they do not look alike at all to me except for the fact that they are both semi auto pistols. Just my opinion :shock:

    So there! Don't bring it up again :shock: :shock: :wink: :wink: J/K
     
  8. The Hi Point slides are very square and blocky looking. That is why everyone that hates them says they are so ugly.

    Only us people in the know realize it doesnt make a difference as long as the bullet lauches like it is supposed to :wink:
