Hi-Point Want You to NAME THE NINE


    You’ll remember back at SHOT Show earlier this year, one of the products to cause the most hype was Hi-Point’s new tactical 9x19mm. We’ve honestly never seen James so excited about something non-Glock or short shorts related. In our SHOT Show write up on the new pistol we called it the ‘New C9’, for simplicity’s sake, but that isn’t the gun’s name and Hi-Point need your help to pick a cool new designation for the pistol before it begins shipping later this year.

    Hi-Point began teasing the competition on their social media a day ago and sparked enough interest for people to start calling the factory direct before the competition had even begun! Pick a cool enough name and the prize is your very own pistol with personalised serial number and a few boxes of ammo thrown in.

    Here’s how you can suggest a name for the new Hi-Point 9mm:

    MKS Supply, LLC., Dayton, OH, June 4, 2019—Want to put your mark on history? Want eternal bragging rights? Hi-Point Firearms is giving you a chance to do just that with its Name The Nine contest!

    Hi-Point Firearms, in conjunction with its exclusive marketer, MKS Supply, announces a Name The Nine contest for Hi-Point’s new 9mm semi-compact pistol.

    To enter go to Hi-Pointfirearms.com; click the contest link and enter.

    You can find all posts about the contest on the Hi-Point Firearms social media page or through the hashtag #NameThe9.

    Phase One Name Entry begins: June 6, 2019, and runs to June 13, 2019.

    Phase Two Polling: Between June 18th and 24th selected names will be posted on Hi-Pointfirearms.com for you to vote for your favorite name. The new firearm model name will be announced via Facebook Live on June 25th at 1 pm EST.

    The Prize: The Name the Nine winner will receive one of the early production guns! The winner will also be awarded eight spaces in the serial number block of the prize firearm for personalization. This wording and/or numbers will become the official eight-digit serial number of this one-of-a-kind pistol. The winner will also receive 250 rounds of 9mm premium Barnaul ammunition.

    The winner’s personal information and the unique serial number will not be disclosed.
