Hi-Point Firearms, founded in 1992, is an American arms manufacturer that is based in Mansfield, Ohio. The company quickly made a name for itself by producing quality firearms and making them available for a low price. Today, the company produces a line pistols and carbines that are chambered in the following calibers: 380 ACP, 9x19mm Parabellum, .40 S&W and .45 ACP.
The company prides itself on what it considers its three greatest attributes: value, reliability and service. The value speaks for itself. When you buy a Hi-Point firearm, you receive a high-quality firearm at a low price. The reliability of a Hi-Point firearm is often overlooked. All Hi-Point firearms utilize a traditional blowback operation, which is simple yet reliable. Though this system of operation may provide for a heavier product, it also provides for a more reliable product due to their fixed barrels. Not to mention, all Hi-Point firearms benefit from the company's strict quality control policy that requires each pistol and carbine to be test fired for proper safety and functionality prior to shipping. Finally, there is service. All Hi-Point customers enjoy a lifetime warranty on all Hi-Point firearms that guarantees free repairs for the life of the firearm.
All of that is well and good, but we really need to talk about the Hi-Point JCP .40 S&W pistol. As noted, the JCP is a striker-fired, semi-automatic polymer pistol that operates on a blowback system of operation not unlike that found on the famous Walther PPK – the pistol of choice for one Mr. James Bond. If the action is good enough for him, it is good enough for you. The JCP also features a 4.5-inch barrel and an overall length of 7.75 inches. Much like all blowback pistols, the barrel of the JCP is fixed to the frame, which is constructed from high-impact polymer. This pistol weighs in at about 35 ounces when loaded and while it is on the heavier side, it remains easily manageable by most men and women. As noted, the pistol is chambered in .40 S&W and comes with a single 10-round box magazine. Other features of the JCP include a manual thumb safety and a 3-dot iron sight system with a fully-adjustable rear sight. Additionally, there is an integral accessory rail that makes mounting lights, lasers and other tactical gear very simple.
Looks are not everything – the Hi-Point JCP .40 S&W has proven that on many an occasion. Rather than dropping over $500 dollars on a pistol with a logo that people will recognize, pick up a Hi-Point for just $137.99. This pistol is a great choice for:
- Target shooting
