Favorite Hi-Point: C9
Gender: Male
Location: Az
Age: 60
When I bought my C9 I thought, "for $150 I'll take my chance" but I really wasn't expecting much. I have been very pleasantly surprised! First time I took it out, I had 1 round fail to feed (nose down) on the 1st 4 mags I ran. Since then, 600+ rounds with no probs. Of course, I did my reading like all of us...loaded mags full and left that way for a week, always tap my mags now to "seat" the rounds...didn't have to polish ramp or adjust mag "ears".

My C9 has really become a reliable and fun shooter! I did a polish job on the raised area of the sides of the slide (I think it looks much nicer). Every 4 or 5 times I take it out I rub the polished area with some mag wheel polish to remove an tarnish.

My gripe, WAS the darn cheap, flimsy, plastic rear sight that it came with! Doing searches led me to the David Mahan rear sight for C9's that is available and VERY affordable! The first time I took my C9 out, the factory sights\adjustment wasn't even hitting paper. Had to move in to about 10 feet to see where it was going. Got it adjusted and it was good to go. But I found myself having to continue occasional "tweaking" to keep it spot on. Just touching it could cause it to get out of adjustment.

The Mahan rear sight is made of metal, and anodized. AND IT STAYS PUT! Best ~$35 I ever spent!

Would love to put a photo but can't seem to do that right here. Will when I figure it out.

Next post I'll write about the ballistics chrono-graphing we did with different calibers and ammos last week!

No, I don't think so. It knows my ISP and blocks me at the door. I got banned same as you...for nothing substantial. I posted a joke with political undertones in the wrong forum ( the comedy thread no less since it WAS a joke) And even had the disclaimer at the top that if it was mis-posted to move it to where it was supposed to be. I was a member there for maybe two weeks. No warning, no nothing...permanent ban! I don't need the link that bad :)

I think mine are the standard u notch..... as far as the pics go, we all pretty well use photobucket or other hosts for pics... helps us save bandwidth.

If you need any help, let one of us know and we will be glad to get you squared away.
