Watch: Hi-Point Carbine Hunter Series

While Hi-Point is known for its low cost handguns, since the 1990s the company has also made a line of carbines chambered in handgun calibers. Hi-Point expanded that carbine line with the Hunter series.

There is a channel on YouTube called “TheFireArmGuy.” In this video he talks about the Hi-Point Carbine Hunter Series in 45 acp.

Now for the video.

On a personal note, I have always found a carbine chambered in a handgun cartridge rather interesting. I could see using one around the farm or while hunting on public hunting lands.

Suggested retail price from the Hi-Point website:

Prices are as of August 1, 2017.

  • Hunter 40S&W – $471.00.
  • Hunter 45ACP – $482.00.
  • Hunter 9MM – $459.00.

Manufacturer listed retail price is always a little higher that street prices. In the video he mentions the carbine cost in the mid-300s.

From watching the video, I can not find anything to dislike about the Hi-Point Hunter series. It comes with a scope, sling, has a rail and the charging handle is on the left hand side.

Overall, this looks to be a good truck or ATV gun. Something that can get dinged and scratched up, and it doesn’t matter.
