Hi-Point’s PR company, Shults Media, had this to say about the upcoming release:
“This is not an old model with a few tweaks like the latest version of someone’s 1911. This is an entirely new pistol of a more contemporary design and yet will retain Hi-Point’s affordable pricing, reliability, robust construction, accuracy and owner following lifetime warranty.”
There are no details as of yet, but word on the street is that it’ll be released at the end of this month, possibly during SHOT Show week.
Guns.com reports that the new pistol will sport a threaded barrel, and have at least a 10-round capacity. While the new pistol is said to be modern and presumably much different from their traditional lineup, they say that the price will remain affordable.
We’ll be keeping an eye on this one to see how it plays out, and what this new offering actually looks like. Maybe we’ll be able to grab one for testing, but we don’t know anyone over at Hi-Point. We’ll have to make some calls.
