    Hello everyone. Today i decided to buy a Hi-point C9 at my local Gander Mnt. After getting a lot of slack and them trying to get me to buy a $500+ handgun I still went with the hi-point. I was told by the sales associate that if I clean my hi-point that the warranty is voided. Is this true? or is this some ****ty technique to get me to change my mind. From my research it sounds like the warranty is "no questions asked".

    Ask him how by 'cleaning' you void the warranty.
    That's about as far from the truth as you can get.
    You'd almost get the manager.

    Never heard that one before. Just out of curiosity, what Gander Mountain location was this? I too have had trouble with some ignorant staff at GM.

    Next time you are in there, tell that employee to stop spreading lies.

    There are 2 times to shop @ gouger mountain?
    Once & NEVER again.
    I just don't have ANYTHING good to say about the gm's around here!

    If I were Hi Point, I would quit allowing them to sell Hi Points.
    We keep hearing these same comments, ever since they took on the Hi Point line earlier in the year/

    This doesnt even make sense. Cleaning it voids the warranty? I dont see even some idiot behind the counter of a chain store saying this, especially since theres a copy of the warranty in every box and all you would have needed to do was ask him to see the included warranty paperwork.
     
  6. That is pure unadulterated bull$hit. And IMHO you should call them out on it -write the manager, general manager, whomever, and be sure to cc Hi-Point.

    Can you tell I detest salespeople who lie???

    I always thought that when a HiPoint pistol gets dirty enough that it won't shoot anymore you were just supposed to throw them away??? :D
     
  8. or send it back to the factory for a free cleaning :rofl:

    I dont even clean mine, i run a snake through the bore and call it a day.

    450rds so far. :cool:

    I was told by two different sales associates that once i take it apart to clean the weapon that rips off a sticker that voids the warranty.

    I was actually thinking about doing that because how horrible my experience was. Not to mention this is the first weapon i have ever purchased.

    Again, all you have to do is ask to see the warranty info that is included in every box of every gun sold. Regardless of brand.

    In other words, your BS Detector broke the needle clean off, and you came
    here to see exactly how big of a lie they had to tell to accomplish that!!! :D

    I thought when they got dirty enough they wouldn't shoot anymore you just sent them back to MOM and they sent you a new gun.

    Well obviously they've mistaken a Hi-Point for an Xbox 360.

    Actually the 'no questions asked' is a thing of the past. That kinda went away with the ProMag issues.

    There isn't any sticker.

    Mind you, the factory says that you don't need to clean it very often (swab the bore every 300-400 rounds, field strip every 1500-2000 rounds). Most people here probably clean them more often. But it's a bit of a pain to have to drive the roll pin out to get the slide off.
