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. For more information on the lifetime warranty, please contact Hi-Point Firearms.
The Hi-Point C-9 is Hi-Point's compact version of their standard 9mm pistol. As noted, the C-9 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 C-9 features a 3.5-inch barrel and an overall length of 6.75 inches. Much like all blowback pistols, the barrel of the C-9 is fixed to the frame, which is constructed from high-impact polymer. This compact pistol weighs in at just 29 ounces when loaded and is easily manageable by men and women of all sizes, making it well suited for concealed carry. As noted, the pistol is chambered in 9x19mm Parabellum is comes with a single 8-round box magazine. Ten-round magazines are available from the manufacturer. Other features of the C-9 include a manual thumb safety and a 3-dot iron sight system with a fully-adjustable rear sight.
Then there are the other draws. Typically, when you order a firearm from any manufacturer other than top-of-the-line companies like SIG Sauer, Springfield Armory and GLOCK, your pistol arrives in a cardboard box. When you order this particular C-9, it arrives in a hard plastic case like the big boys. Not only that, it comes with a limited edition Kershaw knife. And as you know, Kershaw is well respected in the blade industry.
If you are on a budget, there are not many pistols that can be had for a lower price than the Hi-Point C-9. Throw in the hard plastic case and a limited edition Kershaw knife and you would be foolish to pass up this deal. Consider the C-9 for:
- Target shooting
- Concealed carry
- Much more…
