hi point frame?

    Been a while, I can't remember if there are inserts in the pistol frames or if they are solid polymer.

    Ultimate goal would be to print a jhp/jcp frame, and make it more pleasing to the eye. Also colors.

    Maybe make a large framed 9mm.


    Also this falls under "because I can"

    There's a metal tag embedded with the serial number. AFAIK otherwise all plastic.

    It has already been done, it's called a JF-9?

    Do an 80% version, using a common double stack mag, and sell them!!
     
  5. Is the JF9 a polymer frame? If it is, then I gotta get me one somehow, someday.

    It's not the frame size, it's the barrel length ;) So until you can
    "print a barrel" (or source a longer HP style barrel) it's not a project.
    The C9 is already really a "large frame" for the most part! Kinda like
    the old Ford 335 Engine Series :D "chevy guys" say it's a big block,
    but it is truly a Small Block. 351C, M and 400... :eek:

    The JF-9 is a alloy frame. You can find them on GB from time to time. You may have better luck finding a Stallard JS-9?

    I've got large hands...

    The c9 is kinda small in the grips for me. Plus if I could make it look cool...

    But do you have a JHP or JCP for comparison? The C9 is pretty big,
    but I have never really checked them side by side or back to back.
    Longer grip area would make the 3.5" barrel look even more...
    ...diminutive... :(
    I think they need a 5" to 5.25" barrel for the large frames, with threads:D
    Run a factory comp on there, or even a suppressor, for the motivated :cool:
    Maybe MOM is afraid that even more "bangers" will get it and use illegal
    (unregistered) suppressors and ruin HP's Good Name :(
     
  10. I've got, um, five Stallards. (I didn't set out to get that many, it just, um, happened.) And I just acquired a JF-9 parts kit -slide, barrel, etc. Maybe I will just put the JF-9 slide and recoil spring setup on a Stallard frame and call it good.

    So MACH-0 is correct, you had "better luck" :rofl:

    I've handled both, and the larger pistols point better to me.

    You are right about it looking goofy, but maybe you can combine it with a slimmer frame that takes the carbine mag? It wouldn't be much longer...

    Design it compatible with 1911 grips? Double stack 92fs mags?

    Some minor changes I think but yea, it's just an updated Stallard. I can compare them later for ya.
     
  14. Myself if I wanted a larger framed 9mm I would just buy one with a larger frame from another company. Seems a lot more economical than buying a 3D printer.

    Not sure of the current price but the Zastava M70A was a tad over 200 bucks. Full sized 9mm all steel pistol.

    Not knocking your ideas, just "tweaking them" a bit...
    In reality, you probably want the 2011 (or Double Stack 1911)
    grip panels. They are more slender for use with the double stack mags.
    The classic 1911 grip panels add a lot of width for the slender frame.
    Also, if you run into frame rails or other width constraints at the top
    of the mag area, Para Ordnance has magazines with a very sort (1 round)
    single stack top section. It is still too short for the carbines (which have
    frame rails in the receiver that cannot be cut out) but could or SHOULD
    work with the pistols. Ya Never Know! :eek: :cool:

    I think he already has the 3D printer, WW... Sounds Like It!

    I have been able to find several DIFFERENT JS-9's?

  17. You live in a free state. I'm not so lucky :(
     
  18. But when I retire it will be to a free state - maybe Florida? I like their tax code for retirees :)

    Cause that's what Florida needs. More old people.
     
  20. And for 6 months and a day, they'll have two more wrinkled old fogies to add to the list :)
    Actually from a tax standpoint Delaware is tops, but it isn't a gun friendly state so I took it off the list. :)
