Hi-Point come up with anything at SHOT show?

Discussion in 'Hi-Point Carbines' started by loworange88, Jan 21, 2013.

  1. According to the article posted, the carrier has a pivoted piece on the back of it like many pump & semi-auto shotguns have and has the spring in the stock at an angle to the carrier.

    PS
    It does look like it should sell. I wonder if there is going to be an 80% lower for it? If there is, I'm going to get one.

    Sounds like its kinda like the old remi 1147 auto stock setup, but piston driven.

    I think HP dropped the ball with the .380 carbine personally. The hydro'ed stocks are cool, but customers have been so vocal for so long about updated designs and high cap mags, abd never once have I seen a .380carbine mentioned. They could have done better.

    We've had an extended thread on just the .380 carbine and surprise surprise....things got a little heated.
    To me it makes perfect sense as they now have all pistol/carbine combos.
    And the carbine will be interesting to current non HiPoint owners that have a .380 carry or home defense gun.
    It's also the only .380 carbine out there.

    A .380 carbine may not be what some, or even the majority, would have hoped for, but...what's the downside here? It doesn't preclude other Hi-Point offerings, it simply adds to the product line with minimal tooling/resource commitment required.

    Oh I agree it was an EASY choice, to add it, yes it continues the HP pistol/carbine "team" idea........it just eventually is gonna start biting them in the hindquarters if they dont start giving the customers more of what the customer wants, as compared to whats easier for the company. I still th they should start doing more of what the customer has been asking for, for years.

    It's still progress. Maybe they'll get us a 10mm matched set next year. Who knows. Maybe we won't see squat for another 2-3 years. At least they're still low-cost and the warranty hasn't changed.

    Ok that explains why California always has problems keeping guns off thier streets, the crappy new grips cause people to drop them and then they can't get a grip to pick them up and leave them there for children to trip over and bunnys to nibble on and die!
    **Its sad that someone will read this and believe what I said is true and then demand people pick their dropped firearms up!**

    Never explain your jokes until at least two idiots have taken you seriously. Then you have the added satisfaction of making them look foolish.

    The bunnies was a nice touch.

    Isn't that something?
    People vote a CLOWN into office & when he makes CLOWN choices & decisions, the same people that elected him get all upset?
    I wonder if those same said "people" can spell UHAUL?
