They are not made anymore, but I have heard rumors that Hi-point is redesigning the C9 comp for rerelease. Used C9 comps pop up on places like gunbroker and auctionarms once and a while. You just have to keep your eyes open, and be willing to drop extra $ for shipping and transfer fees.
Not just a rumor, I asked the mothership about them, and got an email saying they were redesigning the C9-COMP. Of course, that was 13 months ago... :devilsidesmile:
I figure right after the 4595....which means a llittle while after this winter,,,which equates to 2013 or so, right?
I have a .380 comp wore out and recently refurbished be the mothership. Flawless just like was new. What's one going for these day's ? Not for sale, my gal would have my jewels from her rearview mirror. We shot up all the ammo last year before the anointed one came to be and it's taken this long to replenish supplies plus a little extra. .380 ammo if you got hang on to it until all stupidity is over with.
I believe the C9 Comp also has a longer barrel correct? I was originally wanting to get the comp version but the guy at my LGS told me they quit making them and were rare to find (this was last year) so I settled on the regular C9.
I think the longer barrel was also the reason I wanted the comp version.
Yes. sightly longer barrel to allow the comp to clamp on to the end sticking out of the slide.
I have no proof that it does anything, but I feel like it reduces muzzle flip (maybe just due to weight) and I like the way it looks enough that I don't care if it is functional or not.
The barrel is about a half inch longer. The comp looks awesome on there, I haven't shot a regular C9 though to be able to tell if it actually functions or not. The way it's designed it looks like it should, but I'm no engineer.
I know it makes them louder than an Hell and the muzzle flash is pretty impressive for a little .380. Never shot in pitch dark like in a really bad scenario, but one could imagine you would blinded for a bit? Need to try that know that I think about it. Huh? another reason to shoot.
