Hi-Point carbines – a unique solution
MKS Supply, Inc., Dayton, OH–July 2018– Hi-Point carbines are now legal in California again!
The California legislature’s NEW firearm restrictions now make pistol grip carbines illegal there. Fortunately for California carbine lovers, Hi-Point has a solution-the Hi-Point California-compliant carbine and retro fit kit.
Hi-Point, maker of the most popular and affordable carbine of their type in the country, created a California-only version of its carbine without the threaded barrel and with a modification that meets the state’s new requirements.
The factory-installed “California-compliant Paddle” is a flat panel attached to the pistol grip that eliminates the full pistol grip function and feel.
Hi-Point California-compliant carbines come in 9mm, .40 S&W, .45ACP and 10mm, and the base MSRP of all California Compliant calibers will increase between $45 and $50, depending on model, configuration, and caliber. And as with any Hi-Point carbine or hand gun, compliant carbines can be purchased through any local gun shop or FFL sporting goods store in California.
More good news: Hi-Point carbine owners can retrofit their existing Hi-Point carbines to comply with California law! Existing Hi-Point carbines are NOT grandfathered in, so to stay legal in California Hi-Point California carbine owners can purchase the compliance paddle and attach it themselves.
NOTE: Please call MKS Supply, LLC at 937-454-0383 EST for information and pricing on a compliance paddle ONLY for existing Hi-Point carbines.
P.S. Affordable Hi-Point firearms (pistols and carbines) are intentionally robust, reliable and accurate guns. Hi-Points can be tossed in a tackle box or in a pickup cab floor without the owner breaking into tears. And, who cares about holster wear? Hi-Points are America’s working man’s gun (ladies too of course). So (even in California) if saving a few hundred to a couple thousand bucks that can be spent on ammunition or even more Hi-Point firearms is your cup of tea, a Hi-Point is the gun to buy.
