    Hello!

    I just bought this Hi Point C9 pistol (brand new) yesterday. (I immediately Duracoated the grips....but no other modifications....so far!)

    [​IMG]

    My question(s) is(are) this:

    The serrations on the slide are in a different location than most C9's I've seen. I'm assuming it's a newer model, but I'm not sure.

    -IS this a newer model?

    -What other changes, if any, were made?

    I'm sorry if this has been asked before. I did try the search...:)

    Your gun & both guns in SWAGA's picture were built before 1/1/2015. After that, the roll mark would read Strassell Mfg. paulky_2000's gun was from the last 3 years of Beemiller's run. But Strassell's has been issuing both serration types since they took over in January, and I don't know why?

    Leftover stock would be my first guess.

    That makes sense. The carton has a sticker stating that the pistol was safety checked on Feb 25, 2015

    So far, that's my only question. This site has lots of info!!:)

    Thank you all!!

    paulky_2000,

    Be warned that Hi Points are ADDICTIVE!!!

    I once knew a guy who had way more Hi Points than he had sense, but I don't really know him anymore?
