Hi-Point YC-380

Hi-Point has introduced a new firearm to their lineup, the YC-380, as the latest addition for enthusiasts seeking a .380 ACP variant. This model mirrors the functionality of the single-action, blowback YC-9 but is now available in a different chambering. Users will find familiar features such as manual thumb safety and backstrap safety, as well as compatibility with +P ammunition. The firearm comes with a choice of barrel modifications – it can be obtained with 1/2×28 threads at the muzzle for those interested or in a standard format without threads. A Picatinny rail is built into the design, allowing for easy attachment of accessories, and it’s equipped with Glock-style sights.

Product specs:

  • Chambered for .380 ACP
  • Manual thumb safety and backstrap safety
  • Can handle +P ammunition
  • Barrel options: available with or without 1/2×28 threads at the muzzle
  • Standard Picatinny rail
  • Glock-style sights
  • Unloaded weight of 34 ounces
  • 10-round magazine
  • 4.12-inch barrel
  • MSRP of $229

The standard finish is a sleek black-and-gray, but for those who wish to personalize their firearm, Hi-Point offers slide engraving with the popular, yet meme-worthy Yeet Cannon branding.

Kara Boesenberg, the executive vice president of MKS Supply—Hi-Point’s parent company—emphasized the importance of the Second Amendment being accessible to everyone, regardless of their price range. She indicated that the YC-380 is a continuation of Hi-Point’s commitment to producing affordable firearms without compromising on quality.

This introduction is part of a broader trend within the industry of manufacturers responding to consumer demand for more varied and accessible firearm options, keeping both seasoned aficionados and newcomers in mind. Hi-Point’s latest offering, with its combination of features and price point, is poised to be an attractive option for buyers interested in a budget-friendly .380 ACP pistol.

    Hi-Points are fugly jankwagons, but God Bless 'Em-- they mean even the po'est folk nationwide have access to the practical ability to defend their families, and that's what the Second Amendment is really about. Violence must be democratized, or there is no democracy.

    Sold. This will go nicely with my custom .375 rifle can, a U-Boat, and a Comp M5.
