Camo Hi-Point Pistols

Hi-Point

MKS Supply announced that Hi-Point pistols will now be available with a variety of camo colors:

  • digital desert tan
  • woodland-style
  • pink and black

All of the camo patterns are applied using a hydro dip process. All four of the company’s handguns (.380 ACP, 9mm, .40 S&W and .45 ACP) will have at least some of these camo colors as options. The .380 ACP gun is available in pink camo only. The other guns have the full slate of offerings.

MKS also announced that Hi-Point will be selling a new version of the .380 ACP handgun with a compensator to help tame the recoil of the 9×17 cartridge in the 29 ounce handgun.

    Isn’t that like polishing a turd?

      EXACTLY!!!!!

    • ostiariusalpha

      It happens. Mythbusters, amongst others, have successfully made shiny sh!t. Somebody will buy, and love, this pistol too.

  • Will

    Trying to make a silk purse from a sows ear are they???
    It’s a POS pistol. Will kill you dead, if it works, but still a POS.
    Life is too short to shoot ugly guns.

    Sarcasm meter over 9000
    Also why they haven’t come out with Titanium Gold finished barrel and milled slide to facilitate combat optic target acquisition devices is beyond me. They can easily sell that at $400

    Because lipstick on a pig is always the best answer.

    • Tom

      You can not polish a turd but that small fact has not stopped people trying for centuries this is just the latest incarnation.

      • iksnilol

        Actually you can, Mythbusters proved it.

        • Kivaari

          Did they freeze it first?

          • Southpaw89

            No, they found a turd that had almost no impurities, some kind of animals, and employed a special technique that is used to mold mud or clay into very smooth glossy spheres, it actually worked quite well.

            Must have been one of mine, it don’t stink either.

  • Anonymoose

    Needs more Urban Camo.

  • Kelly Jackson

    You have to fire 50 rounds without the extractor breaking to unlock this camo.

    • Some Guy

      Correct me if I’m wrong but can’t most blowback pistols function just fine without an extractor?

      • iksnilol

        IIRC they can. But it becomes hard to remove unfired ammunition. It sorta becomes “you loaded it, now you fire it”.

  • SP mclaughlin

    This right here is my Glock 40
    This is my problem solver

    • Xtorin O’hern

      im so happy someone remembers this

  • Sianmink

    They should offer a factory CASHPAT camo because Reasons.

  • Al

    Stop the presses, I believe we have the winner of the Army’s modular handgun system competition right here…

    • iksnilol

      Well, I doubt even the most stupid private can screw up a properly functioning Hi-Point.

      • Vince

        I don’t know…there is this old joke about privates. Issue three privates a bulling ball and within 24 hours you will find that one has sold his bowling ball onto the black market, the second has lost the ball, and the third will have broken his

        • iksnilol

          I have a feeling that joke is based on a true story.

      • El Duderino

        I can recall at least two times Marines I knew broke something that the manual stated, “Part is non-replaceable and cannot be broken.”

        • Southpaw89

          Well its cheap enough you could just about issue a new one every time a part broke, just call it the disposable handgun system.

        • iksnilol

          What… What did they break?

          *readies popcorn*

          • El Duderino

            IIRC it was a couple pieces of an M1A1 Abrams that were not supposed to break. How a combat vehicle doesn’t have a 100% spares list is beyond me but that’s the DoD for ya.

  • Vitsaus

    This makes perfect sense. When fleeing the crime scene these patterns will blend in better with the bushes when you toss the weapon. It’ll take the cops longer to recover it, giving you a chance to call your hommies and construct an alibi. They know their customer.

    • Kivaari

      It needs to be inner-city grey.

  • USMC03Vet

    Perfect for accessorizing the fashion dog tags.

  • Fruitbat44

    I think it looks rather cool.
    Although I can’t help thinking, “Go faster stripes on a Skoda . . .”

  • Wv cycling

    Best ever chance to talk about lipstick on a pig!

  • Kivaari

    Camo lipstick on a pig. Wow!!!

  • HKGuns

    …..I bet most of you thought these couldn’t get any uglier? Well, you were wrong.

  • El Duderino

    Hi-Point. Shouldn’t it have a “placed in a dumpster after the drive-by” pattern?

  • Southpaw89

    Slightly less ugly, just don’t raise the price too much, the low cost is the reason they sell.

  • anomad101

    I have this tremendous urge to run right out and not buy one.

  • Madcap_Magician

    There is another version in a special digital camo pattern. Whenever you try to take a picture of it, it disappears.

    You know, to protect you from yourself in case you want to publicly share the fact that you own a Hi-Point on social media.
