About 3 weeks ago I cracked the frame on one of my C9's so I called MoM and sent it in. A little over 2 weeks later FedEx, after asking for ID, hands me a box from MoM. Inside the box I find a brand new C9 with reprinted serial number. Big thanks to Hi Point for always standing behind their warranty. I noticed a few subtle differences in the new one. Last time I bought a new C9 was in early 2012 I think, may have been 2011. I also bought one the prior year. The Good: The trigger on the new one has a little less creep. I haven't measured the trigger bar or sear cam to see if they changed the length but there is a noticeable difference. The feed ramp is what (I assume) they would call polished. It's more smoothed out than actually polished. The high spots on the inside of the slide are also smoothed. If I wasn't told it was new I would have thought it had a few hundred rounds through it. It has been sighted in. All of my other new HP sights were way off out of the box. The Bad: They have changed the LRHO spring. It is noticeably thinner than the older ones and also has a blue coating. I have had some problems with the LRHO not wanting to release (with magazine out) so the other members that have been posting slide hanging problems are correct. Something is not right. I"ll keep playing with it and see if I can figure out if it is due to the spring not being strong enough to pull the LRHO back down or if there is another issue. The Ugly: They are still using the wonky 3 groove rifling on the C9's that leaves the barrel looking like an egg. I don't know why they switched to that process in the C9 only or why they continue to use it but I wish the would switch back to the old 6 groove. Also worth mentioning the magazines now come with the Hi Point logo stamped on the side.
