Hi-Point Firearms currently offers one 9mm concealed carry gun ≤ 7.5 inches in length
Hi Point was founded in 1992 by Mike Strassell, owner of Strassell's Machine Inc that incorporated in 1987. All Hi Point pistol models have a blowback design, making this the only company that does not use a locking breech design for 9mm caliber. This simple blowback mechanism requires a heavy slide, thus the top-heavy visual impression of Hi Point pistols. The company targets the lowest price point on the market and backs their firearms with a lifetime warranty.
