So I dressed up the new HiPoint and took it out to the range.  Man this thing is fun!

I have no idea what you did to that poor lower. I have two New Frontier lowers both with JSE surplus uppers one 16" and one 20". Lowers were built out using PSA lower kits with mil spec buffer tubes and the rest is Magpul MOE furniture. Anyway. The only parts on the lower that had to be fitted slightly was the mag release on both. Nothing a Dremel with a fine grinding bit and 1000 grit sand paper to finish it off couldn't fix in 5 minutes.

+Robert Jakiel I wish it was just the mag release.  I had to drill out the pin for the bolt release, as well as the takedown pin detents.  The worst... which I can't fix is that the divot in the back where your end place goes is wrong and can't put an end plate on there at all.

Meh. ACR for $1800. Proven, tried and true. The ARX100 brings nothing worthwhile to the table for the cost.

I will give the no OWL hack a try.  I just picked this up about 2 weeks ago and this happened over and over again.

Seriously. What a cunt. Yes that's the only word that suits this thing.

I went ahead and did it... I bought a HiPoint. I picked up the 995 Carbine and it's probably the most fun I have had for $235.

The pistol is fun and the recoil is amazingly light due to the blowback design.

The last thing I'm doing is wasting time putting an empty mag into my pocket during a firefight. That mag drops and the other is in with the bolt slamming home. End of story. That empty is no good to me if I'm not sending lead down range and staying alive. I'll pick it up and reload it when the confrontation is over.

+Robert Jakiel I agree.

Please note, when Yoki was demonstrating that technique, he specified it was used during a lull and was to make sure you had a full mag instead of a partial.  Retaining the partial in case you need it later could be important.

Thanks for watching.

What's the point of the reflex sight if it's mounted on the slide?

Theres not much of a point in full auto.  In semi auto the projectile has already left the barrel before the slide (and sight) start moving backward.

Meh. For the price go ACR, SCAR or high end AR.

+Evan Graham Agreed.  So many more proven and superior options for the same or lesser cost.  This rifle reminds me of the H&K VP9 which is to say, much ado about nothing.

8 lbs 11 oz aint bad but a AR10 with lightweight furniture and optics tips the scales at around 9 lbs. The few ounces doesnt outweigh the superiority of a .308 over a 5.56. Especially over distance.

The Larue 16" PredatAR in 7.62x51 weighs in at 7.75 lbs empty.  So with a full mag and the right optic you may hit 9 lbs. or a couple ounces over.  In any case the .308 is the way to go.

Not failure to eject but failure to extract. Contact steyr and they will send a new extractor.
