Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

The Hi-Point 9mm carbine performed much better in this test than the last time we tried it. It had a decent trigger, ran flawlessly, and handled quickly. It also outshot the Ruger, probably because its sights were easier to see.

This shows many of the features of the Hi-Point. The pistol grip offers a not-too-slick surface to grasp the gun, allowing the shooter to control it with only one hand, if necessary. The rear sight is protected by metal ears. The safety is located convenient to the trigger-hand thumb, or the off hand.
The Hi-Point's rear sight, combined with the simple front post, was easy to see and accurate to aim.
Chambering a round means working the bolt, the handle for which has a hexagonal head that looks like it came from a hardware store. A collar serves as a slide lock by fitting into a round cutout at the rear of its motion.
The buttstock is plastic, and features very little drop. Combined with the sights, it allows the gun to be mounted from the ready position.
