Hi-Point 916 C-9 8+1 9mm +P 3.5"
by Hugh D Date Added: Thursday 30 August, 2012
I've had one of Hi-Point's 9mm carbines for over 12 years now and it's a fun and dependable little rifle. Two of my grandkids have learned to shoot with that little gun. So, I thought I'd try one of Hi-Point's handguns. I've a boatload of 9mm so that's the one I went for. Also, I'm not a newbie as I've over a dozen "name brand" handguns and I'm not limited money wise. I was just curious about how much gun you could get for the price.

When I got it I found that it's a big hunk of alloy sitting on top of a plastic lower. So, it's heavy and to me a bit unwieldy straight out of the box. But, I put a Hogue Handall on the grip and that helps in that regard. To me the Hogue gives is a better feel and more control.

Like other reviews on the C9, I find that it's not a pretty handgun, but every time I pulled the trigger it fired. I fed it an assortment of South African and Spanish surplus FMJ; Wolf lacquer cased; S&B; PMC; and Federal Hydra-Shoks (which it will be loaded with 99% of the time) and not one FTF or stovepipe... it digested and fired all of it, over 200 rds during that first session.

It has good sights and even with these old eyes it did 3 inch groups at 7 yards. That's good enough for a nightstand gun and that's where it now resides.

A lot of gun for such a low price and made up in the Buckeye State which is good. I'm very happy with it. Plus, I'm happy with Bud's and the transfer FFL, Kitchen's Guns of Ashland, KY, good folks, all.
