FINALLY...got to the range today and ran two mags thru the carbine and 3 mags thru the 40 SW. Both performed flawlessly. No jams...no misfires. I actually hit the target a few times with both. Of course there had to be a jerk there. One kid saw the carbine and said he didnt like Hi Points. He had just finished shooting a 1943 Mosin. He likes Hi Points now...lol !!!!
