So a few weeks ago I recieved a Broken down, busted up, rusted, dog chewed up, piece of crap hi-point c9 (with only electrical tape holding it together).. I got it from my step dad who basically called it a boat anchor. I posted pictures of the frame here and got some advice from you guys about it. The thread can be seen here: http://www.hipointfirearmsforums.com/forum/f273/fixable-my-new-me-hp-c9-316760/ So exactly 16 days after i sent it off, I got a visit from the fed-ex guy and this is what was in the box.

Hi-point continues to stand by their products 100% and this is just another example of that. Hi-point offers HIGH VALUE items and a undeniably reasonable price. I went ahead and made a set of American Walnut grips for it. This is my first shot at making grips for this gun so they still need a bit of work to get the mag ejecting reliably, but other than that they look feel and fit great. check out the pics here below: [/url][/IMG] [/url][/IMG] [/url][/IMG] Let me know what you guys think. Next i will be buying a HP 45 carbine, and possibly a compensated pistol, who knows? All i can say is that i am a happy guy this holiday season.
