Welcome. I'm not good with advice, but I would load the mags full and leave them that way for a couple weeks to break them in. And don't look down the barrel to make sure the bullet comes out. Lol.
You will have fun here.

load the mags full for few days, maybe put a little gun oil on the weapons. Empty mags (in an approved, safe direction). Reload. Repeat.

Welcome! Like mech said, load your mags full and let them set until you go to shoot, then take a couple of rounds out before you put the mag in the weapon.

The mags sometimes have to go through a break in period and that helps them it seems.

You're welcome. Also you might want to do as Condition 1 said and add some oil to your guns, and oil up the mags, wipe a little around them. I've noticed, especially on 995 mags, will start to get spots of rust on them on humid days.

Dont do it HPs are the worse gun you could ever buy they jam every single round... :roflol: ....except for those who actually own them....dont buy into the internet BS for the money they are great guns.

The biggest issue are the mag lips and spring tension....but plenty of links here to fix that, also doesnt hurt to do a fluff n buff on the feed ramp

Hmmm maybe they used different metal at production times im near Houston Texas and have left my C9 in my Jeep for over a year now with two spare mags with no issues. I did oil it up before I put it in and oil it every month as well. Had to change out ammo as they started to rust up but all shot except for a few that had rust on the back on primer.

I think about everyone has their favorite gun oil. I've used several, currently I'm test Italian Gun Grease, and I'm really like it. However there are many other great oils. Frog Lube, is another. Hoppes Number 9 is a good standard oil. Any is better than nothing.

You know, you could be right about the different metal. Like I said, I only really seem to get the rust spots on 995 mags. I just keep a little oil wiped on them and they go away. I haven't noticed any for almost a year. Then again, I haven't been shooting on snowy days since winter.

okay cool. you know my favorite thing i have seen on reviews so far? the "i wouldnt trust my life with this gun if i was being robbed" and someone always tells them to go stand in front of one and see how comfortable they feel lol. everything i have read says these guns are super reliable. only a truly stupid and ignorant person would say the aforementioned quote

All the guns I own are Hi Point, each one shoots very well, very accurate, and very deadly. I trust my life to these guns because I take good care of them and insure each one is ready when its time to be ready.

I don't know of any gun that may never have any issues, ever. But I agree with Ranger, take good care of them and they will return the favor.
I've had a couple jams and a couple double feeds. This is when you start asking questions and some of these guys on here are expert and will help you fix the problem. All my problem happened when my guns were still new. After a little tweaking, not me, the gun. Lol. I haven't had any problems since. I've never had any problems with my 995ts, ever and I've put at least a 1000 rounds through it.

see and i think its funny if you look at all the gun snobs comparing a glock 17 ($550 at my local gun store)(or a kimber or sig pick your snob poison lol) to a hi point $150 dollar gun. the two cant be compared. but like anything if you take care of it it will serve you well. i spent 1500 on my vehicle and it is reliable as hell....cuz i take care of it....when i get my c9 and 995ts i will definitely be taking care of them
