Hi-Point .45 ACP Carbine

    Pictured with optional $25 foregrip

    Hi-Point has finally produced a carbine chambered in .45 ACP. From the press release …

    As with the 9mm and .40 Caliber Hi-Point carbines the longer barrel will increase velocity figures between 80-200 FPS over a like chambered handgun, especially with +P loads. These velocity increases coupled with the fat formidable .45 round, improved carbine handling and a longer sighting radius over a handgun make this an excellent gun for small game (Hi-Point Carbines are legal for deer in some states), plinking, home defense and law enforcement.

    The robust all weather black molded polymer skeletonized stock is both tough and light in weight. Additionally the forearm offers an excellent grabby surface regardless of conditions or whether the user is wearing gloves, mitts or is bare handed. The carbine has three top-side and forearm bottom Picatinny rails for optional vertical grips, lasers, optics and lights.

    Caliber .45 ACP
    Capacity 9 rounds
    Finish black powder coat
    Barrel 17.5″
    Overall Length 33″
    Weight 7.5 lbs
    Front Sight adjustable post

    I don’t understand why Hi-Point does not produce a standard capacity magazines. Nine rounds for .45 and ten round for 9mm can no longer be considered standard capacity.
