• Firearms XVII - Stuffing A $100 Hi-Point Down the Front of My Jorts Edition

I love it already in a morbid curiosity sort of way.
I also found out that it's covered under Hi-Point's unlimited warranty, so I'm never going to say another bad word about Hi-Point. Doing free repairs on a 32 year old gun that they didn't even make for a guy who isn't even the original owner is a level of customer service that can't be topped.
But will it still fire if you mash a twinky into the mag well?
Hopefully!
Yeah, I was gonna say. You can dredge a HiPoint out of a lake, totally encased in rust, and ship it to them and they'll clean it up, refinish it, replace all the worn parts and send it back with an extra mag for your trouble.
Yes, pretty much everywhere else in the country according to federal law.
So my A1 barrel finally shipped this afternoon, really excited to be able to finish this build...
So I recently got a Sig P320 X Full Size Slide (optic plate and night sights but standard otherwise) and X-Carry grip and had a holster question. Anyone know of what a good owb holster would be for this. I also got the x full size frame but I dont have 21 rounders yet.
Don't bother with the extended mag for carry. I am assuming you are not trying to hide .
Nope it's a bit too long for that I think.
My barrel that I ordered Feb 21st finally came in! https://files.facepunch.com/forum/upload/111854/bfaf282b-364f-429d-8774-b763faf83ab9/IMG_20190419_174758.jpg
No problems? Make sure you leave a nice word for retrorifles on reddit or something, they are a small outfit and benefit from that exposure.
They really need to make a brace that looks like a CAR15 stock, prefferably in both poly and alu. I really wanna do a Gau 5 build, but I'd rather not deal with the NFA headache.
I plan to finish putting it on (still need to align the barrel nut teeth and put in the gas tube) and then take it to the range. I'll report on the interwebs after I've shot it.

https://www.facebook.com/RescueHumor/videos/328146664553575/ What the hell is this drill? Some Brazilian secret training routine?
@Revenge282 Nothing loaded on your post for me.
Like...I get the idea behind it (shooting targets while civilians panic) but I feel like this could easily be done with another target on a piece of string going down the firing line...
Lots of countries do publicity stunts like this. It looks cool to the general public and gives them more faith in their military/special forces/police. I can almost guarantee that they don't do it as a regular training technique because it's just silly

It's actually surprisingly... nice. It has a very nice trigger - no slack or mush, just a clean crisp break. It's well put together especially considering what it is and all things considered I really have no regrets about this purchase. No idea if it shoots yet but I don't see any reason it shouldn't. The steel frame improves its balance compared to the Hi Point but it still isn't great in that regard. Really a pretty heavy gun.
@Grenadiac Those first images are a match made in hell. I approve. Does it use current production Hi-point mags?
A hefty chonker.
It's desert eagles cousin, the desert Turkey
I don't have any on hand to try. It definitely feeds from unmodified 1911 magazines though.
Honestly, it looks better than the new ones.
I mean yeah aside from being huge and finished with paint instead of any kind of real finish, it's well made. I like it, truly.
It's like the 1911's long lost retarded cousin that's 5 times removed. At least it appears to use a common mag that you can easily get. Just can't have those big base plates.
You going to trick it out for open use?

Weights- Walther CCP: 1lb 9.7 oz Umarex/Tisas 1911: 2lb 10.8 oz Haskell TS45: 3lb 1.4 oz All loaded.
i forgot about those entirely. they're shit but in the same way hi points are so its fine. weighs about as much as a six pack though
