Tim (TCinVA) continues to take it for the team, finishing up the first month of dedicated Hi-Point shooting at GunNuts.net with some genuinely surprising results.
- The gun actually looks good in a high quality holster.
- Dot Torture at seven yards turned in a 43 out of 50! And not to pick on Tim but he acknowledges his lack of WHO practice with the gun’s challenging trigger played a big role in his dropping all five of the weak hand shots.
- A 2.21″ offhand 25yd 5-shot group with P9HST3 (124gr +p HST). For comparison, with the same ammo, from a sandbag rest, the PTC test Glock G17 averaged 2.52″ when new…
- Reliability improves when the gun gets cleaned and lubricated every 200rd. While this is certainly more TLC than the folks at pistol-training.com are accustomed, it’s hard to fault the gun too harshly. How many people buy a $150 gun and then shoot $75 worth of ammo through it at one time? Sure, I’d chew glass before I’d clean a gun that often but I don’t think the typical Hi-Point owner buys ammo in quantities that make truck drivers cranky. And “improved reliability” is a relative thing… the gun experienced nine stoppages in less than 500 rounds this week. I’m no math wizard but I think that’s worse than 1:2000 Mean Rounds Between Stoppage, isn’t it?
I continue to commend Tim on his bravery (50 rounds of +p ammo through a Hi-Point without a welding mask?) and his objective approach to seeing what the Hi-Point can really do. Check out all the details over at Gun Nuts.
