Are hipoints really bad or is this another k meme? I may be looking to buy a hipoint 45 from a local pawn shop.
They're not terrible. I just picked one up to beat the fuck out of Mad Max style.
the postols can be picky about ammo, vulnerable to limp wristing not to mention it's pretty unergonomic, cheap feeling and plasticy. but at the end of the day it's a function pistol chambered in service pistol calibers in a price bracket usually reserved for shitterrible pocket automatics.
the mags suck ass though and take a long time to break in. the shitty mags are probably the cause behind 90% of the jamming issues people run into with hi points. that and using ammo too cold to properly cycle them. both the pistols and the carbines work best with hot loaded ammo
