Hi-Point Custom’s Unique Hi-Point Pistol

    UPDATE: Just to be clear, Hi-Point Customs, a group of enthusiasts on Facebook, is in no way related to Hi-Point the firearm brand (manufactured by Beemiller in Ohio and distributed by MKS Supply). This post and the pistol in question are satire. It seems not everyone can tell the difference between satire and reality. Also, mixing blackpowder and smokeless powder is stupid, but you already know that because you are not eight years old, right?

    You’ve always wanted a Hi Point that smokes like an old coal locomotive haven’t you? Of course you have:


    “I am fire! I am… death!”


    Hi Points hold a special place in the collective heart of the shooting hobby: All the way down at the bottom. Well, that’s how many people see it, anyway. Ironically, this has led some enterprising individuals to take up “custom Hi Point modifications”, often as a way to poke fun not only at the budget-priced guns, but at the custom world, and at themselves. One of most recent examples of this phenomenon was the custom Hi Point made by Dynamic Pie Concepts, and carrying that torch today is Hi Point Customs, whose… Unique product is probably best shown and not told:


    One of the advantages of the zinc-alloy Hi Point slide is that it is very easy to polish to 1,000 grit.





    As one can clearly see, the slide is decoratively inlaid with the finest 24-karat gold sharpie.


    Being a company that puts quality first, Hi Point Customs ensured their product could function even with the most testing ammunition, such as cartridges loaded with a smokeless/blackpowder mix:

    And the most tactical 9mm load of all, .38 Special:


    Test firing revealed some minor cosmetic defects:


    But with a little touch-up work, these were corrected. You can see the rest of the photos in Hi Point Customs’ Imgur album, and learn more about this absolutely serious product from their Reddit thread, and their Facebook page.
