A friend of mine recently took a pistol instead of cash in some recent deal.

He showed it to me today and requested I test fire it for him. This is one ugly hunk of junk looking handgun!

It's a Maverick 9mm (another strike against it) made by Stallard Arms Inc (Mansfield, OH). Model JS-9mm.

To me, it looks just like a Hi-Point, with the same type internals I've seen on the carbine. The magazine is a really chintzy looking thing not even up to Hi-Point standards. It appears that an odd looking roll pin needs to be driven out in order to take it apart.

Does anyone know anything about this "thing"? It's hard to believe anyone would license any hi-point design, but this could be hi-point with a different name.

I'm hoping the range will be deserted when I attempt to shoot this thing, as it's the last thing I want anyone to see me with.

Unfortunately my friend took this in for a $185 debt, so I figure he got screwed. It does make my poor old Davis .25 auto look good by comparison.

When you consider how cheap you can get a Mak', an FEG H-P, a CZ-52 etc etc he definately got a lousy deal.

It is possible that it is a Hi Point before they became Hi Point. The city in Ohio is the same as Hi Point's address. Cosidering that the 9mm Hi Point can be had for $139 retail new, I'd say you friend has some more money coming to him.

I tend to agree with you guys. I was thinking this hi-point wannabee shouldn't cost more than $15.

I'll fire two magazines through it then hide the thing before anyone sees me with it.

Hey guys,
Look at the positive side of this. You could always turn this in for theater tickets; use it as a conversation starter at the range; impress your wife about the unique investment you made for the family; take it to the next gun show and brag about the 30 gunfights you've won with it, etc. etc. etc.

Regards,
Sam

I think I read about one of those in a gun rag about ten years ago. It's big, blocky, and has a textured finish, right? As usual the gun rag gave it a fair rating. It was proof positive that gunwriters never badmouth products.

I think it sold for about $130 new. So yes, your buddy took it up the tailpipe. Like bucksnuffer says, he needs to go back and plug the other guy's exhaust system with it.

It's definitely big and blocky. As for the textured finish I guess all those tool marks could be called "textured".

I'm not looking forward to shooting this thing...Something I never thought I'd say...
