Get the grinder out....

  1. Who needs a Dremel? Take a perfectly good plastic stock and grind it.All for cosmetics.No gain whatsoever.Stupid is,as stupid does.

    It's just a $40 hunk of plastic that's easy to replace.

    Has to be more comfortable than stock. Which feels like you're holding a python by the rib cage.

    It makes him happy.

    I don't think it looked that bad.

    In case youve not noticed, about 80% of all mods done to a hi point are purely cosmetic.
    Even if they accidentally actually work, most are still done to make the gun more individual and better looking.

    Fixed it for you.:p

    I personally prefer the old forend more, as well.

    But, anyone who's built thier carbine different, didn't do it for you. They did it for themselves, and if they like it, doesn't really matter what you prefer.

    That's the first HP carbine I've seen that I liked the looks of. Though it would be nice if it had a little more clearance at the trigger so that it could be fired from a folded position.

    Personally, I like it pretty well.
    I just think he's a douche for not making it Black! :eek: :D
    Maybe he plans on a color change later, I hope! Paint it all
    a nice "Talon Style" paint job :D

    Oh, It WORKS, it might just be the camera angle we're seeing, though. ;)

    Had to find a balance between trigger clearance, ejection port clearance & extended overall length. Plenty of trigger room when folded. Finger never touches the stock.

    Jeeze dude...they may "like" it, and MAYBE it improves performance...but my point was more about the idea that most cosmetic changes in many cases are a bit like jacking the rear end of your Honda Civic up like a 1972 shackled up Nova...it does more harm than good, and it's just silly!:D

    It may not be for me...but I'm still laughing at them.;)

    I understand your point. Youve missed mine.
    You liking it, doesnt mean the person doing it doesn't. And that's who matters.
    Just like you probably aren't overly troubled if someone was to say "ajole's 4000 stock .22 rifles are boring and ugly", the guy who cuts off his stock, grinds off the forend or paints his carbine pink and green lightning bolts probably never once thought "i sure hope ajole likes it" before doing it.

    If you like stock, and not being able to tell yours apart from any other, that's cool, its yours.
    Some people don't care at all if it "improves" the gun, they just don't want to be the same as Antoine else.
    Just like the guy with the jacked up civic, he likes it, and hes probably damn proud of it.
    As cic stated, "be unique".

    Angle doesn't show how much space there actually is.

    He's that @$$hole in charge of autoword on my phone. Like Siri, only more annoying.

    He meant to say "everyone"

  20. Okay.I guess to each his own.It just seemed to me that his modifications were too cheesy and rough.Take the thing apart to clean it around strangers and they'd be like WTF? I forget sometimes that these firearms are cheap Hi Points.I just really like my HP's and would never molest them that way.If I can't reverse the mod,I ain't modding.
