    My Hi-Point c-9 stoves-pipes or maybe called- failure to feed. I read somewhere to fix magazine feeder lips. What does that mean? How hard to do ?

    No offense intended, but you're probably limp wristing it.

    'Stove-piping' is failure to eject.

    Either that or he's one of the many that got a junk Hi Point mag. I like Hi Points but probably 80% of the problems they have are attributed to out of spec mags.

    Failures to feed and stovepipes are two different malfunctions. Do they both happen, or are just the stockpiles happening? If you could clarify that, we can better diagnose the issue. If you are just having stovepipes , that is usually a result of limp writing and not magazines. If you are having just failures to feed, then you very well might have magazine issues.
