My CF-380 finally burped at the range yesterday and I had a stovepipe. I've owned this gun for at least 15 years and this is the first time I can remember having a malfunction of any type. I know gun enthusiasts like to bad mouth Hi-Points but this is the most dependable gun I own. It digests every brand and type of ammo I put in it. At the time I bought it I think I paid something like $109 for it.

I don't know if I can even blame the gun for the stovepipe because I've never field stripped this gun for cleaning. I just spray it with gun scrubber on occasion. My 380 is like the Energizer Bunny, it just keeps going and going.

Thats great that it's been working good. You may have a weak recoil spring.

Stovepipes are a classic sign of limp wristing. Were you getting tired or lazy?

my CF380 has likewise been a good one. it did develop an issue with the slide locking open after I dont know how many thousands of rounds. by locking open I mean as would not unlock without dismantling the pistol.

it somehow fixed itself and has not done it again since.

I didn't know that. Yes, it was at the end of a session. I had just put 200 rounds through my Webley & Scott Mark IV .38. Because of my age I'm downsizing my handgun collection and I wanted to shoot up the last of the 38 S&W I had before I sold this gun. Perhaps the stovepipe is on me.
