About the Handgun:
Early Hi-Point single-stack design similar to the JS-9, employs alloy steel frame instead of polymer, checkered grips, rough textured slides, and a heel release magazine latch.
About the Manufacturer:
Hi-Point owner Thomas Deeb was a television repairman before becoming a firearms manufacturer. After spending a couple of years designing the handguns and rifles he wanted to mass produce, he opened his Hi-Point factory near Mansfield, Ohio in 1992. Deeb's company is known for making inexpensive handguns so everyone - particularly the poor - can afford one for protection or recreation. While having such low-cost firearms on the the market always brings up questions about quality, according to Hi-Point they have one of the lowest return/repair rates in the firearms industry. Hi-Point produces about 50,000 pistols and 15,000 carbines each year.
About the Cartridge:
This cartridge was developed by John Browning and was adopted by the United States Ordnance Department along with the Colt-Browning automatic pistol in 1911. It has also been made the official military handgun chambering by several other governments, notably Argentina, Mexico and Norway. The 45 Automatic is the most powerful military handgun cartridge in use today. This is a heavy and powerful sub-sonic round. Although its muzzle energy can exceed 400 ft-lbs, its velocity and bullet weight creates a steep trajectory curve that limits its effective range to self-defense distances.
