Dayton, OH-(Ammoland.com)- MKS Supply Marketer for Hi-Point Firearms has some interesting news. The new owner of Hi-Point Firearms decided it was time to update the company’s logo – so he did!

“We felt it was time to have a fresh, bold logo that is easily recognizable at a glance,” says Mike Strassell, new president and CEO of Hi-Point Firearms. “We want to show the company is moving forward with new products and ideas. Paired with our new slogan, ‘American Made, American Promise,’ the new logo helps to convey that Hi-Point is a solid, dependable brand that is here to stay.”

Hi-Point Firearms logo

Beemiller Company, the original manufacturer of Hi-Point Firearms, was started 35 years ago this year by Tom Deeb. When he retired in 2016, Deeb arranged sale of the company to Strassell, a friend and longtime employee who designed/engineered firearms for Hi-Point.

Hi-Point produces all-American made firearms, and the unique Hi-Point lifetime warranty stays with the firearm regardless of original purchaser. Hi-Point Firearms are affordable, accurate, robust and reliable everyday hard working guns.

We encourage you to come by the MKS Supply booth 16144 (main floor) at this year’s SHOT Show and check out Hi-Point’s selection of pistols and carbines.

You can get a SW shield for $220 on sale. Not seeing how this is worth it at $200.

The .45 ACP carbine, with the standard 1911 magazine adapter, allowing it to run 15 round and up mags, as well as the available 28 round drum essentially turns it into a “poor man’s Thompson” ……..(the semi-auto version, of course). It weighs less than the Thompson, and throws hot lead downrange at the same rate. Better than a Thompson, it comes with a lifetime warranty!!!

I have had 5 Hi-Points 2 9mm a 45 a 9mm carbine and a 45 carbine, all of them over an 8 year period, the first 9mm was great, the second I ended up sending back twice, on return from factory the second time, all in the original box, I found that they replaced the whole gun with a letter that they were sorry for the in convenience, now that is what I call warranty and customer service, I was also told to use p+ ammo in the 9mm, I found that using 124gr works very well in it.

Not so, you can get on the list to buy a HTA stock here:
https://www.hightowerarmory.com/AccountSettings.asp?AddNewCustomer=Y&ReturnTo=
Cost is $249.99 for just the stock.
You can use any of the older HP Carbines to install in the new stock.

Glad to see people posting here positive things about their HiPoints. Wasn’t too long ago that if you mentioned the name HiPoint people would come out of the woodwork to dog you out about them. I have a two C9 and a 9mm Carbine, both function awesomely, they come with one if not the best MFG warranty in the gun world, will eat just about any ammo you feed them and are never hard on you pocket book; Not the best looking guns but I’ll take function over looks.

Considering I’ve read many more positives over this brand than negatives, I have no doubt ithese are very functional firearms. I would suggest that the design team set aside any logo change effort and go about improving the looks of the pistols. There is no doubt these things are ugly (yes, yes, I know beauty is in the eyes of the beholder) but much of what’s holding these back are simply the visuals. If they sleeked the slide a bit (maintaining the mechanics and weights) I think these pistols would renew some interest, or at least distance the appearance curses.… Read more »

I own a Hi-Point C9, new as of 2014. This was my first gun. I like the gun and would call the gun plain, not ugly. But decided to change out the handgrips to a “birch like” pattern to “dress” it up a little, aftermarket. I DO recommend that new CEO think of making an effert to change look a little. Can he offer accserories for upgrading? Anyway, being a woman with fairly large hands it fits well enough. I seem to have a problem with an occasional “scuffing” wound on my thumb/hand area, after roughly an hour shooting it.… Read more »

I have the 9mm High-Point carbine and I love it. Fun to shoot, no problems and eats everything I feed it. Now I wish High-Point made their guns that are legal to sell in Illinois. Something about the pot metal and melting point makes them illegal to sell in the state of Illinois.

Except for the reputation (whether deserved or not) as a cheap gun, often used by perps, the HP9 is, in my view, impressive. It fills the hand, ballances right, has an intimidating appearance, which can deter need to shoot ina confrontation, soaks up recoil and has a mag disconnect safety as well as thumb safety. But the gun gets very little serious consideration.

For serious work, you DO NOT want a gun with a magazine disconnect safety! Have children around? “Gun-proof” your kids, don’t kid-proof your guns. Allow them to see them, hold them with your direct supervision anytime they ask. Teach the the do’s and don’ts (ie; Eddie Eagle rules). Show them how they function and how to tell if they are loaded or not. It works. Safes and unloaded guns only work for the criminals and Donkeycrats.

I own 45 pistol & carbine close to 5yrs, a lot of rds down range no problem, no complaints. I am considering the bull pup stock, first need to know if that would violate the warranty? I sold my C9, should slap myself. Plan to get another one, and the redball mags are OK. Wishlist – carbine in military caliber, also wish the carbines had threaded barrels though that would raise the price.2

They are very much like Lay’s Potato Chips in that no one can own just one. I bought a .45 hand gun and next thing I know I saw two .45’s, two 9C’s, two .380’s and two 995TS’s in my safe with a .45 carbine in layaway at Buds.

I bought a .40 carbine when they first came out after reading a review. Ugliest damn gun I own, and dependable as a hammer. Accurate enough to pop steel at 100 yards all day long. ordered one of the new stocks when they came out, and was surprised when I saw the low price and no shipping charge. looking to get a 10mm carbine soon.

I own a Hi-Point C9, and have owned it for about 13 years. I have put more then 5000 round through it and I have not had 1 issue. Everytime I take it to the range it performs my just as well as my Springfield 40 & 45. The C9 is my favorite gun to shoot, and everytime I take someone with me to the range that is new to Hi-Point they love it also. My C9 has sold about 7 or 8 more C9’s to friend and family because of how reliable a product it is. With that being… Read more »

I bought a Hi-Point 9mm in a pawn shop many years ago. Think I paid $70 for it. Shoots great, never had a problem with it. Went target practicing with my nephew. He was shooting his Barrette 9mm, I had my Hi-Point 9mm. It performed just as well as the Barrette, and was just as accurate.

I own the C9 and the 995TS Carbine. The Carbine runs great and is very accurate, with no jams. The C9, I can’t fire more than a couple shots without a jam. I’ve tried so many fixes, lubes, etc. Nothing works. Highly recommend the carbines, but the handguns leave a lot to be desired.

Your C9 comes with a lifetime warranty, so I suggest to contact Hi-Point and have the gun shipped back for inspection and eventual fix. I am sure the guys at Hi-Pointe will do a good service to keep their customer satisfied.

I concur, you should send your gun in to Hi Point for repairs. I have a short list of guns I would NEVER re-buy again, a Colt Mustang 380, a Keltec PF9 & a Intratec TEC 9. You noticed I didn’t say, stay away from ALL Colts, Keltec’s or Intratec’s. You see you can’t judge a whole company with the experience of one gun. In fact I actually owned 3 Keltec PF-9’s, because I wanted the gun to work so bad. Now that is saying something! If any one of these guns had 1/2 the warranty of a Hi Point,… Read more »

I own a 9mm, .45 cal and .45 cal carbine. Love them all. Never had an issue until recently and it really scared me. One because my son does not believe in Hi-point and I’d have to tell him of the failure. Two, this is my carry gun. To make a long story short, the problem didn’t start until I had purchased a new box of ammo from my gun shop. When I approached them they said I was flinching, blah, blah, so they went onto the range, same thing, came out scratching their heads and told me to return… Read more »

You aren’t giving any detail as what ammo failed and what the failure was exactly. HP in the nine doesn’t recommend anything over 124 grain. As any gun bullet shape can cause feed issues. Sounds like the problem was with the 45 pistol, but not sure from your post.

You’re right about the ammo, but it ‘s called Aguila, 230 grain, full metal jacket. I have four-magazines and it failed to feed in all four. I have pictures and as stated the place where I purchased the weapon, The Gun Bunker saw and were able to simulate the failure. The failure is as follows: The first round will fire. As the slide comes forward, the next round is jammed with the round going up the ramp, but the nose is buried at the upper part of the ramp and the rear of the bullet casing is jammed against and… Read more »

In spite of several commenters here liking their hi points, the company is universally acknowledged as the lowest level gun maker in the country.
“Cheap” and “ugly” are the words most often applied to these products.
I must say the lifetime warrantee is a good feature.
Maybe the new c e o can change the general gun buying public’s opinion of the brand.
It will take a lot of work and a long time to do that.
Century has upped their game and has improved their builds.
So there is hope for hi point

I bought a Hi-Point 9mm carbine about a yr ago. It too goes bang with every squeeze of the trigger.
It’s also rated +P. I took it apart to clean and really, it wasn’t such a big deal. A ‘bit’ more to it than disassembling most rifles etc. Fun Bun!

Make sure the feed ramp is polished which can be done with any grade of sand paper. Go to You Tube to see videos on magazine and spring adjustments, put at least 200 rounds to break it in. I can shoot better with my Hi Point than my Smith & Wesson SD9 VE.
