That's not the Yeet Cannon tho that Hi Point was showing off at SHOT back in 2019
It's not that I can't afford more, it's that I'm not willing to overpay at a time when low supply causes prices to go up.
The other factor is the .45's that do interest that are current production, like the Px4, can't be found in new condition.
Can't buy what isn't for sale.
I own firearms at both ends of the price sheet and quite a few in the middle. There are a few that are more of a novelty and I barely trust them to look at. The Highpoint is not one of these.
The snobs can sneer at the price or the ugliness, I've made jokes about them myself, but they work reliably, plain and simple.
That was 3-5 years ago. I've probably had it to the range a dozen times. Zero problems. 100% reliable.
I'd like to shoot one of the pistols sometime. They look fun.
I've had 3 Smith's, a Ruger, and a Sig that didn't function new. Had a winchester and a mossberg that broke within the first box of ammo. Never had that with a Hi point. Lol.
The hi point is a lesser gun, no doubt . Massive. Blow back action. Terrible feel and balance. But ive not seen one that didn't work new. And I'd guess that 95% of centerfire guns never hit the 1k round mark anyway.
My 9mm carbine will outshoot my Tavor, AK or most of my ARs. (All of my mil-spec ones). Its cheap plastic and ugly, but the only failures it ever had was with the pro mag magazines (which I've owned for everything from my old duty p97 to my new Glock 22 amd have never seen a promag work. Not one). Looking at the promag mags they look to be better quality than the hi point ones, but they turned mine into a single shot. It will never see a round count high enough to be meaningful and again, it's a lesser gun, but it is accurate and been reliable for the rounds its been fired.
Gotcha. I had no idea about the "true" Yeet.
And I thought those disappeared with the .45 ACP CX4, yet Beretta still shows the PX4 on their website. Interesting.
Oh, and don’t rack the slide too hard if there’s a live round in the chamber. The firing pin is also the ejector.
Accuracy is a given with a high point. The barrel is 100% fixed and can't move. The sights could be off, but the group size is pretty much inherent to the blowback design. Assuming the pins are holding the barrel firmly and the barrel isn't smoothbore...it pretty much has to be fairly accurate.
Look at it as a handheld competition rail gun. Lol.
Unless it's the 45. In which case it's almost a bench mounted rail gun, due to weight
Lol, I've made that joke many times: if I can't shoot you with my Highpoint , I can throw it at you and kill you with it.
Also shot the Barkeep. Thankfully the elevation is on, but the windage causes groups to the left of POA. Not nearly as bad as another Heritage I have, so for the money and something new it's fine and I really did enjoy handling that shorter barrel more than the 6" Heritage I have and the smoothness of the lockup on the 6 round cylinder vs the 9 round is noticeable. IDK how much I'll actually take it out to shoot tho as side by side the NAA MiniMaster I always bring with me to the range is still smaller, obviously lighter, and only holds 1 round less and I think is faster to reload.
I've already got ligament damage in my knee, I don't need to set myself up for a knee replacement by the time I turn 45.
Understand about building to a price point, and these are infinitely better than, say, the Rohm revolvers that were the price leaders when I started shooting. Those were not only ugly, they often didn't work.
For the OP, glad yours is working out for you. Still confused about the Yeet Cannon, the gun and the name. It did appear they tried to smooth up that one.
Those things just flat out run. Accurate too. But they are clunkyyyy.
I would suggest never taking it apart and instead, cleaning it with aerosol solvents to blast away grime and never worry about it.
Separate names with a comma.
