14-round mags for High Point Carbines

A few weeks ago, while shooting the .45 ACP Hi Point carbine, I told you that I would get one of the new 14-round ProMag magazines for the .45 ACP carbine and I'd let you know what I think of it.

That day has come. Here’s the video:

Ugly? Yes, but from what I've read people feel they are functional and pretty reliable considering their cost. Also, they're USA made.

According to the booklet that comes with the carbine, you will void your warranty if you use after market magazines. Some of the other web sites I have visited have discussed this topic at length, and it seems that the after market mags may damage the feed ramp.

I do not have first hand experience with this, just restating what I have read. It would seem to me that if it functions and feeds reliably, it should be OK. I have a 9 mm carbine and would love to have more mag capacity than 10 rds but have refrained from buying the Pro Mags because of the warranty issue.

The lack of hi cap mags is one of the reasons i sold mine years ago. I like the the higher cap and that they are made in the USA.

What's with the big bulky plastic part? It doesnt match the grip. It lookslike it was just thrown on.

I liked the Hi Point carbine overall. It was fairly accurate, reliable and inexpensive. The mags stunk, it was ugly and it was a bit of a pain to detail clean.
