In a fit of insanity a few years agao I bought a Hi-Point carbine. Had nothing but trouble with it. It fit into the category of "Wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy".

Also had an SKS that couldn't hit a paper plate qt 100 yards. Always thought I'd be scummy to pass this off on someone else.

Yesterday I found someone who was told all of the problems (went right over his head), yet insisted that I sell him these two guns. In one stroke I got rid of my last two "dogs".

Bought a NEF 45-70, all the supplies for loading a new caliber, factory ammo, and still have enough left over to pay for my anniversary dinner. I'm also at teh stage where I no longer have any guns that make me feel stupid (for buying them) when I look at them.

i looked at one of the hipoints back when they came out.first thing i noticed was the thin plastic mag well which flexed easily side to side when i picked it up.i passed but fell victim to a small .22 automatic.the dealer probably thought i was easy prey and had "sucker" written all over my face.was cheap and flashy,ended up in my burn barrel.i have a russian made sks that shoots very reliably and can hit clay pigeons regularly at 100 yds.i guess there are lemons in every make.

If you informed him of some of the problems, and he still purchased the guns, then he should have left a happy consumer. American commerce at its best.
