The "Good Enough" Gun. The Hi-Point Carbine may not be the world's greatest gun, but it's a gun certainly good enough to get the job done. It is a short, handy, reliable weapon that's ideal for either home defense or plinking.

Developed specifically for the civilian market, the gun has nevertheless been approved and purchased by a small number of U.S. Police departments that cannot easily afford to equip its officers with more expensive tactical rifles. The Hi-Point Carbine is constructed using a blend of polymer and alloy metals which reduce production costs and selling price.

Often mislabeled as an assault weapon, the rifle is a semi- automatic pistol caliber carbine. At the heart of the design is a simple blowback action. It is chambered for .45ACP, rated for +P ammunition and includes one ten round magazine.

A removable ghost ring aperture rear sight has been paired with a high profile protected front sight that gets on target well. A receiver mounted Picatinny rail allows a shooter to attach optics such as a rifle scope or red dot sight.

The 17.5" barrel provides excellent down range accuracy at distances of 50- yards or less. Weighing in at 7- pounds, the rifle is handy and maneuvers well through a hallway or doorway. Due to the rifle's relatively short overall length (31"), tactics such as pieing around a corner can be successfully accomplished with minimal exposure to a potentially dangerous threat.

A knurled, extended charging handle makes the rifle easy to load, especially in a pinch. The buttstock is a skeletonized, all weather, polymer reinforced design with a recoil cushioning internal buffer buttpad.

The textured polymer pistol grip provides excellent control and handling, while the grooved forend allows the shooter to maneuver quickly. Tactical accessories such as a foregrip, light or laser (not included) can be attached to an integral rail on the forend-- or even to an alternative rail mounted underneath the barrel.

Recoil is almost non-existent, even when firing +P ammunition. User friendly fire controls are conveniently accessible within a shooter's workspace. The Hi-Point Carbine has a thumb actuated safety that is mounted above the grip.

For faster reloads, the grip mounted magazine release performs as intended. The rifle is a striker driven design and has a last round bolt hold open feature. One of the glaring weaknesses on this rifle is the trigger. It is not clear whether the manufacturer left it on the heavy side for liability reasons, but it nevertheless takes an intentional pull to get the weapon to fire.

That being said, ff you're expecting an ultra lightweight, hand crafted, precision carbine rifle with the finest construction materials-- then prepare to be disappointed because this certainly isn't it. However, when you factor its ultra reasonable price, practical use and the fact the Hi-Point Carbine consistently ranks high in evaluations by the gun industry's equivalent to "Consumer Reports" (Gun Test Magazine)-- this little rifle is your classic overachiever.

Realistically speaking, when shopping for a dependable home defense pistol caliber carbine and not looking to sell a kidney to afford it, this rifle is just the ticket. It is an all purpose, low recoil rifle that doesn't suffer from over penetration like most high powered modern sporting rifles. Moreover, the price point and simplicity make it an excellent choice for the beginning shooter just starting to exercise their right to armed self- defense.

The gun is 100% made in the U.S.A. All Hi-Point firearms are backed by a transferable lifetime warranty from one of the best service oriented company's in the industry. Overall, the Hi-Point Carbine is a reliable, versatile, fun, accurate low recoil self- defense rifle chambered in the popular .45ACP cartridge.
