Hi Point C9 – Not a Full Blown Review – Yet . . .

Nothing quite like that new gun smell . . .

And a look at both sides now . . .

A friend asked me about nose dive issues as rounds were feeding out of the magazine on his new Hi Point C9 – I told him I would look into the issue ( yeah I know – any excuse to buy another pistol – LMAO! ) – Oh My! – it appears that this is quite an issue – search the web or search on YouTube – never realized there was such an issue – the simplest solution I came across was replacing the factory springs with Glock 43 extra strength springs from Ghost Inc – Click HERE To Go There – ordered a 3 pack of springs – then ordered 3 Hi Point mags from GunMag Warehouse – Click HERE To Go There – both orders came real quick – no hang ups – Great Service – which gets us to this point – spring on the left is factory Hi Point – spring on the right Glock 43 11% “extra” spring . . .

Factory Mag below – note the spring does not engage the front ( right side ) of the follower – which allows the follower to pivot down with almost no pressure – as the rounds come out of the magazine the stack of rounds tend to “pivot” or “drop” flat – hence the nose dive issues – or so goes the theory . . .

Modified mag below – note the spring contact point is the front ( right side ) of the follower – tends to keep the follower and the stack of rounds in the proper position as the strip out of the magazine – or so goes the theory . . .

I have plans ( who am I kidding?? ) to get to the range and see what happens – I kept one magazine of the three I ordered straight – which gives me 2 factory mags and 2 modified mags to work with . . .

There are as many fixes to the feeding issues as there are people with internet connections – bending feed lips – many different fixes involving bending the magazine springs in various configurations – the big issue is consistency – the springs are a real bitch to “bend” the same way every time and feed lips are a rabbit hole just waiting for you – without setting up a jig feed lips are best left alone – springs?? – find a spring that works! – without the same bends EVERY time you won’t get consistent results – I will work through this one modification at a time – hopefully springs – these or others – will resolve the issues – we shall see . . .

I took the “little” pistol apart to give it a little clean and lube before I start shooting it – and I am impressed with just how simple it actually is – looking forward to getting a post together showing breakdown – clean up – assembly – it’s actually neat the way Hi Point addresses “things” – meanwhile here’s a video from Hi Point . . .

Friday Music -Off the Beaten Path – Tripping Through to Your Weekend . . .

Some appetizers . . .

And something to “clean your palette” – kick back and take a few minutes to prepare for the main course . . .

Saw this group in a very small ( 100 or so chairs ) venue back in the day – they were on their way from hither to yon and literally “dropped by” as a favor to a friend – it was an incredible performance . . .

Not Just Burritos & Strippers – But Tamales – Tamale Wars!!

Who would have thought?? – We enjoy tamales as much as any one – in fact I have an on going argument with myself over getting one of these . . .

Available here < “Tio” Carlos’ Tamale King Model # TK156 > – I can almost justify buying one – if you want to see how easy it would be to “DO” tamales go to the site and check it out . . . The videos are neat and really makes it look simple . . .
