I have looked around this forum a few times as I've always liked hi points. I've repaired a few for folks and was impressed by their simplicity and durability. I recently shot a .45 hi point pistol at the range that had a longer custom barrel (threaded) and a quite large (efficient too) form 1 suppressor. The owner had all told about $450 into a legal, accurate, quiet suppressed pistol that was a dream to shoot. And now I'm addicted to hi points.
