Hi, my name is Broomhead and I am a Hi-Point addict.

Hello Broomhead.
Welcome to our support group.
There are five steps in our program.
Step 1: Buy ammo and send it down range.
Step 2: Buy more Hi-Points.
Step 3: Laugh at all the Gun Snobs for paying way too much, then out shoot them at the range.
Step 4: Happily spread your addiction to others whenever possible.
Step 5:Repeat steps 1 through 4 endlessly.
Unfortunately, these are not steps to recovery.
There is no recovery.

My C9 was having the same problem. I couldn't figure it out. Hi Point took it back and buffed out the ramp. I don't know the real name but it is the piece that puts the shell into the chamber. Mine had a small burr on it. Also, I recommend not putting lubrication on that part, just the recoil parts. Mine is working GREAT now.
Good luck.

My first guess would be the feed lips on the magazine. I'll assume you don't have another mag to compare them too. I had a similar issue with my C9, I had one mag that would feed nose up. I measured them both with calipers and there was a suprising amount of difference between the two, especially the front lips. The 8rd that came with it was fine but one of the 10rd mags from HP was to narrow. I highly recommend if you have the means and ability to polish the feed ramp as well. Once I had mine adjusted each round snapped into chamber. If you are not comfortable disassembling by all means contact HP customer service, but follow Broomheads link to a lot of valuable information.


Good Luck

So have you found a brand that works well in your C9? Did HI-POINT not distinguish between different bullet styles from those three manufacturers?

I haven't had a problem in my new .40 pistol, but I have heard people online saying that any shiesty jam problem is caused by the mag lips or a burr on the feed ramp. Investigate those. If you don't want to, send it back! Lifetime warranty.

I have fired 100 more rounds down range after the initial problem. I fired the American Eagle 185gr. I only had maybe 7 rounds nose up jam. I ordered 2 new mags from Hi-point to see if they compare to the one i received with the gun. Thank you everyone for your help. BUT DO NOT put oil on your feed ramp. Once I got it all cleaned off and free of any oil it did not jam near as many times.
