Hi-Point carbines have long been popular for their simplicity, utility, and affordability. The pistol caliber guns have been available in .45, .40, and 9mm, offering the advantage of ammo commonality and not being too overpowered for home defense.
New for 2016 is a carbine in .380 ACP. This makes pairing with Hi-Point’s .380 pistol easy and adds matches up the carbine and pistol lineups from Hi-Point. MSRP for the black .380 carbine is $297. A pink camo model has an MSRP of $359.
As noted, Hi-Point now offers some color options. Prototype camo stocks were on display at the 2015 SHOT Show and they were rolled out for sale a few months back. Three new finishes are available for both the carbine and pistol lines. Woodland camo, Desert camo, and Pink camo are available for the 9mm, .40, and .45 guns in addition to standard black. .380 guns are available in black and Pink only.
The Hi-Point carbines all feature a polymer skeletonized stock, multiple Picatinny rails for optics, lights, and other accessories, adjustable rear and front sights, and last-round lock open. They use 10-round magazines except for the .45, which holds 9 rounds. All Hi-Point carbines are rated for +P ammunition.
A Pro Pack option includes two extra magazines (total of three) and a side-mount dual magazine carrier.
