New from Hi-Point: Camo Pattern

(courtesy ammoland.com)

Press release:

Dayton, OH -(AmmoLand.com)- Hi-Point pistols are known for their robust construction and affordable prices. Now they’re going camouflage. Okay not that much camo – that you can’t find it when you need it – but the colors are pretty cool. They also match the recently released new line of Hi-Point camo carbines so now one can have a matched set since Hi-Point pistol and carbine magazines are fully interchangeable in .40 and .45 of the same caliber. The hydro-dipped camouflage patterns are . . .

Digital Desert Tan; Woodland (made up of subdued green, brown, black, grey, and beige); and a fun wild pink/black camo pattern. www.hi-pointfirearms.com (click the Products tab).

Hi-Point pistols are available in .380 ACP, 9mm, .40 S&W and .45 ACP. The .380 has a new compensator (not suppressor) model available for an additional $8.00.

Camouflage Pattern Hi-Point MSRP:

  • .380………….. $188.00 (compensated model add $8.00). Pink camo only.
  • 9mm…………. $229.00 Available in all three camo colors.
  • .40 S&W…….$239.00 Available in all three camo colors.
  • .45 ACP……..$239.00 Available in all three camo colors.

These new durable camo colors and patterns are a fun and attractive option for Hi-Point customers who want more than a standard black pistol and at a price point for a pistol they can afford to actually use the heck out of.

    You can put whatever camo you want on the gun, but you cant hide the fact that it sucks.

    1. I think that’s a bit harsh. I have LOTS of handguns, and the hi point is admitadly never my first choice to take to the range. It’s the gun I loan out to first timers to make sure they don’t mess up something I own that’s more expensive. However, it always fires. It’s passably accurate. It’s simple and ugly, but I’ll be damned if it doesn’t work, and when I lost a piece taking it apart to see how it worked they sent me a replacement no questions asked. So, a reliable budget gun with stellar warranty and good customer service sucks?

        I agree with you, I have a Hi-Point 9mm semi-auto that I came by when someone owed me money. Every once in a while I will take it to the range. Never had the first problem with it. I keep it in the Kitchen as my back door gun. It does not look as good as my Beretta PX4 or my XDM, but it has never failed me. Don’t come to my place messing around at night, you may get nailed with my Hi-Point if I am in my kitchen. Now that would be an indignity no self-respecting thug would ever want. I was going to replace it a few years back, but I figured ‘what the hell,’ it still works and has been reliable.

        1. avatar PeterDvornik says:

          Yes, I was being over critical for the sake of the joke. Next time I’ll include a “/sarc” to illustrate my intent

      2. avatar JasonM says:

        It sucks in the same way a Toyota Corolla sucks. They both work well and get the job done, but they don’t have the cool appeal of a fancy Sig Sauer or a 911 GT2 (or a tuned 1911 or Shelby Mustang for those who prefer domestic toys).

        1. avatar Hoplopfheil says:

          I always thought the GLOCK 26 was the Corolla. The 17 is the Avalon, and the 19 is the ever practical, ever popular Camry.

          The 10/22 is the Honda Civic. And then German guns and German cars probably match up nicely.

    2. avatar Curtis in IL says:

      I’m guessing Peter never shot a hi-point, much less owned one.

      They have defended plenty of homes from unwanted guests, at a price point that makes the Second Amendment available to most any American who’s interested.

        +1 ^

        HI-Point makes SOLID firearms, you can use them for their intended purpose, AND use them as a hammer, with no ill effects on either function. I think it’s very telling that, since the addition of the lower rails, (to improve one) they only had to update the coatings.

        ROCK ON WITH YOUR BAD SELF HI-POINT !!!

      2. avatar Zarba says:

        +2. If it goes bang and the bad guy loses, it’s OK by me. I’m not a big fan of the looks, but who cares? They work.

        I still want the H-P Carbine in a bad, bad way. Just so the news reader can say I defended my home with an “Assault Rifle”, if it ever comes to that.

        1. avatar anaxis says:

          I was the caretaker of a 9mm HP carbine for a couple months some years back; I’ve had wantititis for one (preferrably a .40) ever since, and having it dressed up with one of those camo-patterns would be sweet.
          That Hi-Point was easily one of the most fun, handy, and reliable little carbines I’ve ever shot, only the M1 Carbine holds more appeal for me personally.

  2. avatar anomad101 says:

    ooooooooooooh, and it matches my boots.

  3. avatar BDUB says:

    That’s some amateur hydro-graphic application there. Also, with camo….scale matters.

    1. avatar rick3 says:

      So…should the “pixels” of color be larger or smaller in this instance?

  4. avatar kevin says:

    “Hi-Point firearms are very popular with . . . law enforcement. . .”

    Really? I mean, I can see someone wanting a cheap gun, or who doesn’t know any better. But a cop? And “very” popular?

    If I worked for a department who issued that gun, or who wouldn’t afford anything better, or who paid me so little that I couldn’t affording anything better, I’d quit.

    Edit to add: maybe popular as a throw-down gun?

    1. avatar FedUp says:

      I think if you check the evidence room, Hi-Point is probably the most confiscated brand, does that make it ‘popular with law enforcement’ if they keep grabbing them from people?

      1. avatar jsj says:

        IIRC, an article I read over at USCC put Ruger as the most-confiscated brand, followed by S&W, then Glock, then High Point.

        When you are stealing your firearms, price becomes no object 🙂

      2. avatar 7.62x54r says:

        I was in the gun section of a pawn shop in South Carolina a couple of years ago. High Point came up in the conversation. The guy behind the counter said they would not sell one to any person under 25 years old.

    2. avatar Terry says:

      I’m a retired “Cop” and some Departments actually have used them. Obviously you have never been on the street at 2 am when someone shoots at you. Have that experience and then tell me you weren’t glad to have even a pistol caliber carbine to even things out. Easy comments if you’ve never walked in our shoes.

  5. avatar Ralph says:

    That’s not the ugliest thing I’ve ever seen.

    1. avatar Geoff PR says:

      You dated her too?

      Geeeze.

      🙂

      1. avatar jwm says:

        Dated? I guess you could call it that. (wink, wink, nudge, nudge. Say no more.)

  6. avatar TravisP says:

    Has anyone else noticed the fact that the 380 has the option of a compensator?

    1. avatar NDS says:

      Yes and that’s amazing. Guess I’ll order one and cook up some .380 Major loads.

  7. avatar Vitsaus says:

    I guess now that a lot of drug dealers operate out in the desert, they are just listening to their customer base.

  8. avatar SpecialK says:

    Someone please tell me it’s April 1st… From now on if I hear the phrase “like putting lipstick on a pig” I will nod my head and reply “yes, like putting camo on a Hi-Point.”

  9. avatar Gov. William J. Le Petomane says:

    Awesome! Now I’ll have an appropriate back up for my camo Desert Eagle!

    1. avatar FedUp says:

      Which one weighs more?

      1. avatar Gov. William J. Le Petomane says:

        Good point. Finally I’ll have a carry gun for my backup camo Desert Eagle!

  10. avatar jwm says:

    Put that next to a Glock and suddenly the Glock ain’t the ugliest gun in the room.

    I respect what the hi point is. A cheap, reliable-ish gun for folks that need a gun and have little money to spend.

    But trying to dress one up just adds to the tackiness of the guns looks.

    1. avatar PavePusher says:

      Inexpensive but functional guns should get to play dress-up too.

      #HiPointsmatter

      1. avatar jwm says:

        “Playing dress up” sounds cute from one of my granddaughters.

        From a grown ass man, however…… 🙂

  11. avatar pwrserge says:

    The Hi-Point is the WASR of pistols. Is it fancy? No. Will it run like your tuned Mk18 clone? No. Will it sit in the mud for a few weeks and come up ready to put lead into something at reasonable ranges? Yes.

  12. avatar Taylor TX says:

    Less ugly, still a highpoint.

    1. avatar jwm says:

      Less ugly?

      1. avatar Taylor TX says:

        Its a less ugly in the sense that its like a cover up tattoo or a rather shapely gal wearing some way too tight leopard spandex. The lines are smoother over we’ll say.

  13. avatar Galtha58 says:

    Not THAT bad looking. Never shot one but for the money I think my SCCY would be a better choice. But, to each his own. I don’t really get the point of the camo though ? Perhaps, if you throw it in the forest after pulling a job it will be harder for others to find? If so, the Bay is probably a better choice…;-) ! Unless your home interior is done in camo I fail to see what this design would accomplish.

  14. avatar Randall says:

    Picked up a plain black .45 pistol last week. I didn’t want to spend the extra cash on camo. It’s ugly either way but it works.

  15. avatar Robb says:

    Am I the only one around here who hates camo?!

  16. avatar Former Water Walker says:

    Hi-point? I belong to 3 Hi-point FB groups and THIS is nothing compared to the tricking out some folks engage in(honestly if they spend a lot just get a better gun). MY Hi-point 380 NEVER ran but the carbines rock. I never comment on FB except there are worse choices-any “ring of fire” lorcin,JA or raven type dangerous junk.

  17. avatar ahil925 says:

    I’m sure I’ll catch flak for it but I like my Hi-Point pistol and carbine. I’m just confused as hell by the .380 Carbine and now the Compensated .380 Pistol. I kinda get the carbine as an option for places that ban “military” cartridges for civilians (though I wasn’t aware Hi-Point did much exports) or as a companion for the .380 pistols. But why the 380 Comp.?

  18. avatar TruthTellers says:

    Can Hi Point just make the 10mm Auto version already?

  19. avatar Chris T from KY says:

    My bbw Hi Point always puts out. She has never let me down. Her big 45 body feels good in my hands.

  20. avatar the ruester says:

    My only complaint about my c9 is the 8 round mag. Other than that I can honestly say I’ve out shot a few glock and sig owners with it, to their great embarassment.

  21. avatar Michelle says:

    I’m a Sig snob, most recent addition of a p220 10mm, who recently learned to tolerate glocks.

    I too used to bash HP all day long until I said what the hey and got a C9.

    And you know what? No FTF, FTE in over300 rds and it actually goes where I aim it.

    It won’t turn heads at the range no, and it’s not as ergonomic nor has the fit / finish of my p226 elites,

    But is it a “bad gun” by any stretch? Not one bit. Certainly not deserving of the derision I gave the line in the past.

    People seem to put them down like they’re pit metal Ravens or something… the biggest impediment to me buying one was the ridicule at the shop. That may even be why few people end up trying them. At the price, especially if you have other firearms, there’s not much to lose.

  22. Hi-Point figured out that we just want to toss the bloody thing into a pile of leaves and forget about it so they came up with a paint job to assist us in that mission.

  23. avatar John Thomas says:

    shut up and take my money.

  24. avatar SonOfDad says:

    Has anyone else noticed that the .380 model, in addition to having the option of a compensator, is offered only in PINK camouflage? It’s like Hi-Point’s goal is to sell as few of those pistols as possible.
