Yea, not so much interested in 9mm, as I have the EVO to scratch that itch, but .45 might be a different story.

well that will shatter the Hi Point reputation for the ugliest guns ever.

:rotfl2:

(I love my Hi Point 9mm carbine)
I know right... it actually looks pretty good. I like the Tavor style trigger guard.

The carbines are nice little guns, reliable and inexpensive, if a bit ugly. I'm just not a fan of the limited single stack magazine capacity, either.

With a .45 carbine, you could probably shoot .45 Super with no need to do any mods. If you could get a slightly stronger recoil spring, that might be a good idea.

And whoever thinks that gun is ugly needs glasses. It's downright purdy. :)

Okay, with the new stock, it's not that bad looking. If the Hi Point makers would change the gun design to double stack magazines, ie, something comparable to a Glock 33 rounder in 9, or at least a 20 rounder for .45, then I would probably buy one.

Very true. Accurate, solid, reliable, heavy and ugly. But they work and the factory stands behind them.

Like the old saying-- more fun than a barrel of monkeys. I really liked those as a kid.
