    First post. Waiting for my local gun store to tell me my hi point is in. Just saw this and am wondering if it's legit. http://www.redballsports.net/

    IMO that is too much time and effort to put into a hoax, that is a really slick youtube commercial and in HD as well. I subbed the channel!

    I thought the same. Their website looks legit too. And it came out on the opening day of the SHOT show.
     
  6. I watched the YouTube video. (Search for "Red Ball Sports" on YouTube.) It looks for real. Could it be that someone has actually done it and doubled the Hi-Point magazine capacity?

    I will keep my eye on Redball Sports to see if this is a quality product. It is not hard to beat Promag Industries quality.

    They are awfully new to the inet and only have the one product they list, with no way to actually order it.

    Thanks Flash...
    I was strongly considering ordering one, TODAY.
    Now I think I will wait!

    Something I find interesting... in all the pictures of this magazine, if you look closely there is no visible spring in the upper half. One would think that the spring would be visible in at least 1 or 2 of the holes as is the case in most magazines when empty.

    But, being a former LEO makes me a cynical SOB.... ;)

    WElcome! I just bought 4 PM mags so of course there is a 20rd mag.........That plastic stop on there might be covering up a fake?

    Shouldn't you be able to see at least a portion of the follower visible in the top mag as well?

    Bingo Flip! This may spread like wildfire. Only 28 views when I went to Ytube

    They could sell out quick if they are real. They ought to make an announcement here and send out a few for Beta testing in the real world.

    I'm willing to test and post a review. I sent them an e-mail. I'd need to put a couple of hundred rounds through my 995TS, something I'm always happy to do at the range. You know how I am about range reports.

    We'll see if they respond or not. =)

    Looks shaky to me. I stopped video during a closeup and you could see glue that dripped on to the base plate near the red logo. Logo looks homemade too. They might be on to something, but this looks like a prototype at best.
