The brand Hi-Point is somewhat the laughing stock of the firearms industry. They are not known for their ergonomics, reliability, accuracy, or cool guy carry points, but they are instead known for being incredibly heavy, and cheaply made. That’s why when a Hi-Point brand pistol was finally put through an extreme mud test by the guys at InRangeTV, I had to give it a watch. When you find them on sale at a place like Slickguns or Reddit, you can get them at a pretty damn low price point
Expecting the firearm to completely fail right out of the gate, I was surprised when it actually started firing without any obvious issues. Eventually the firearm does fail, but the fact that simply running water over the cheap little pistol got it running again is surprising.
The Hi-Point is definitely not the greatest pistol brand on the market. It’s actually amazing to see how well this thing performed considering that it comes from an industry where you usually get what you pay for.
