The stars have aligned and another Hi-Point will surface in mAss in spite of not being on the "kompliant firearm list". This time around I stumbled across a Hi-Point JCP .40 frame. Price: $40 to me -no FFL fees. Thanks largely to Hi-Point's warranty, parts kits are easy to find. (Most people aren't interested in spending money on parts when the factory gives them away.) The parts kit ran me $46 shipped to my door. All that's left is to get the mag ($18 from Hi-Point) and I will range-ready. Frame: $40 + Parts: $46 + Mag: $18 = $104 total for a gun with a lifetime warranty. Not too bad IMHO.
