Took my new CF380 to the range today for the first time. Put 150 rounds through it right out of the box to see how it did. I own two Berettas and I really only bought the Hi-Point because I just couldn't resist the temptation to see what $100 would get me in a handgun. So here's a report on the 380. The pistol gagged on the very first round I tried to chamber. It didn't want to feed. I've heard this is not uncommon for the first couple hundred rounds off the top of the magazine on Hi-Points. Fortunately, this only happened a couple times using good quality Winchester and Remington FMJ ammo. After several magazines it seemed to feed a bit better. Loading the magazines I noticed that they are not lubricated at all and it felt like there were burrs on the followers. A little oil and some filing would probably make them work a LOT better. All in all, the FMJ ammo worked pretty well. The real problem came when I put a magazine full of Gold Dot JHP cartridges in the pistol. It DID NOT want to eat those things at all! I had to basically force feed the gun the first four rounds. Very annoying. Again, I think some lube and deburring might help the feeding. I noticed that when I released the slide the next round wanted to nose dive instead of feed up onto the ramp and into the chamber. Now for the important part. I was shocked at how accurate and easy to shoot this pistol was. I was able to easily group within 3 inches at 10 yards without really trying. It was very, very consistent, even when shooting at a faster rate. Very impressive. While I never plan on using this pistol for concealed carry or for my primary defense weapon at home, I would feel comfortable having to shoot it in a defensive situation, IF (this is very BIG IF) I can solve the feeding issues. The bottom line is, the gun is butt ugly, feels like a piece of shit, jingles when you shake it, and is a picky eater, but can shoot just as well as my $600 92FS. What do you want for a hundred bones? I think Hi-Point does a pretty damn good job. Hopefully a little filing and some gun oil will turn it into a reliable little range piece.
