HI-POINT 9mm COMP
by BeeMiller, INC.
MODEL ‘C’ as in Third Generation
(why Third Generation?)
There were two distinct upgrades to the base. These upgrades came about from a few USPSA shooters who pushed the gun to it’s limits. Failures were analyzed and Beemiller made the changes as needed. I consider the Model ‘C’ as the Standard. I compared this to my Glock Model 17 9 mm. The two critical areas are No Jams, and less than 3 inch group at 10 yards. Hi Point passed the test.

Update – May 2009 – Still comes out shooting. It was a pleasure working with BeeMiller inc. All of my suggested tweaks were incorporated through version C.
Passed FUNCTION TEST – See Model ‘A’ report.
Number of rounds fired – 1,000
SLIDE – New channel cut for dirt. Like the Glock and others, the channel provides a place for the powder, dirt etc to congregate. Thus allowing the firearm to function when dirty.
The slide retainer has been upgraded to provide more surface area for the areas that contact the SLIDE.
It used to look like a trailer hitch ball. See Drawing Below #7

AMMO used Speer +P 9mm HP and Winchester white box 9mm FMJ.
I also shoot a Glock 17, 9 mm. I shot both at 30 feet to compare the results. Both shot a 3 inch group, standing, 2 hand hold.

I am pretty hard on handguns. It really depends on how much you plan to shoot. Price performance in mind, I would go with the Hi-Point. Unless you plan on shooting 5 to 10 K rounds a year.
The Glock has more add in options you can buy (springs, connectors, sights), but for a basic, no frills handgun the Hi-Point 9mm will do well for you. Both handguns shot 3 inch groups at 30 feet / 10 yards.
I have owned the Hi-Point 9mm Comp since May 1999. Tom Deebs and the folks at BeeMiller INC, do stand behind their product. THEY ARE AMERICAN MADE !!!
