Bought a used carbine this week. It came without a rear sight; because the previous owner had lost it after removing it to install an optic. A few other incidental accessories were also missing so I called Hi Point to see about purchasing the missing items.

Wow...I was blown away by the response from the lady at customer service. She told me they couldn't sell the needed parts; but would send them to me under warranty. I own a lot of guns from different manufacturers; but this was the easiest customer service experience I have ever had.

Anyway, I received a package from Hi Point containing the complete rear sight kit, two Hi Point special tools, a user's manual, and a trigger lock kit. Also included in the package were two plastic pieces that I cannot identify. Rather than try to describe these pieces, I will attach a picture. I put a quarter in the picture for scale. I know I will feel like and idiot when someone tell me what they are.

The second one is the replacement for the first one if you lose them like I do. Mine tend to "eject" sometimes and go flying away never to be seen again.

I gave a buddy of mine a Tipton 9mm snap cap, first time at the range he yanks the slide back and off the thing goes, into the range in with all the spent casings that have accumulated over several months.

Guess he forgot he had it in there...didn't offer him another one.

Little yellow doohickeys for futzing up the thingamabobs. Sometimes you can use them to tweak the framisters. Pretty common actually.

Yup Chef, I was just tweaking my framister this very morning. :D

Don't feel bad Napp, I thought chamber flag, but like you discounted the thought given there were two and they just seemed a bit odd in terms of what I had seen as chamber flags in the past. o_O

Ok...puttting on the dunce cap and going to sit on the stool in the corner now... :rolleyes:

Yeah, I got faked out by the multiple count and the color. In real life, they aren't as yellow as my picture makes them look....almost white instead. Just didn't register as a safety device.
