I don't know Red, my experience with Hi-Point has been rather good considering the price. I don't care for the larger calibers, but the 9mm is actually very accurate, and the 9mm carbine is serviceable considering what it is. I was actually modifying the carbine, and messed it up. I called the company, they put me online with a tech who talked me through not only a fix he whipped up in no time, but a better solution for my "tricking out".
I know what you're saying about the big boys. There is no doubt that they deserve the rep they have. I'd buy all H&K if I could actually. But I can't and so far I've had decent luck with Hi-Points at sometimes 5 times less price.
If I could buy a FN five-seven I would do so without hesitation, as well as the companion P-90 (or PS-90 since I'm a dirty civvie).
