Hi-Point 916 C-9 8+1 9mm +P 3.5"
[916]
$152.00
by Ian R Date Added: Monday 28 November, 2011
If you are looking for a cheap and reliable 9mm, look no further.

After much research, I decided to go with the Hi Point C9. I didn't have 500 bucks or more, or even 300 bucks to spend on a pistol. There are lots of people out there who love their Hi Point.

I came to realize that 80 percent or so of the bad reviews Hi Point gets are from people who are just haters. Mostly these are people who paid 500 to 700 for their pistol and the thought of a 150 dollar gun makes them frustrated and scared. The rest of the poor reviews are either people who got a lemon, or people who don't know how to prevent limp wristing or do a small adjustment on the magazine feed lips.

I immediately adjusted my magazine feed lips (just youtube search for vids on how to do this) when I got the pistol, and I also polished the feed ramp. The thing shot like a charm (except a few FTF issues when I limp wristed it). I ran 150 rounds through it the first day and had maybe 4 failures to feed. That's not bad for a 150 dollar gun.

This thing kicks like a mule for a 9mm (but that's expected due to design). It is very accurate. I suck at shooting and had nice groupings at 21 yards with this thing.

It's pretty heavy for a 9mm, but Im a big guy. I really like it. Im going to conceal carry it until I can afford something smaller.

I give this gun a 4/5. It's nothing special, but for 150 bucks Im VERY happy with it.

If you need an affordable/cheap hand gun for home defense, or even concealed carry, pick one of these up. If you have money, but need an extra gun to throw in the truck, the tackle box, an extra one for each room in the house, get one!

If you have troubles, look into the magazine feed lip adjustment and/or polishing the feed ramp, and learn not to limp wrist it. It'll be a fine pistol.

Oh, and Buds shipped the gun out the DAY I paid for it and I got it in 2 days. Thanks Buds!
