Hi-Point JXP, economical hand cannon.

When Hi-Point introduced the 1095 TS 10mm carbine, as reviewed here, I expected, i.e., hoped, a 10mm handgun would follow, and sure enough, one did.

I was fortunate to receive the first test sample and broke the story on the brand-new Hi-Point JXP.

I posted a few shorts as we reviewed the pistol, and they were well received.

The Hi-Point JXP has been somewhat redesigned and is quite a bit more attractive than the older handgun design. With a Picatinny rail, forward cocking serrations, redesigned Hi-Point logoed stocks, and new lines, it is a massive step in making the new Hi-Point pistol more visually appealing. All the controls, such as the magazine release and safety, are in the same places. The trigger was as you expect from a Hi-Point with some take-up and a bit mushy as it broke just over six pounds. While it is not a 1911 trigger, it is no better or worse than your average striker-fired handgun. The JXP comes with a ten-round magazine, the same as the 1095 TS 10mm carbine. The barrel is factory threaded .578 x 28, the factory thread for .45 Auto, a more common thread than the 9/16 x 24, which is usually on a .40 barrel.

The sights are a three-dot design with the front sight having a yellow coloration and the adjustable rear sight with orange. If you don’t care for the front sight, it can be swapped out for any other compatible with a Glock. As with all other Hi-Poinfot pistols, a peep sight is included that can be swapped for a rear sight.

Throughout the review, we ran several different types of defensive and range ammunition through the JXP, and in about 350 rounds, there were no malfunctions. However, the slide did not lock back in the first four magazines when we ran it dry. Before fifty rounds were through, the pistol began to slicken up, and the slide locked back reliably throughout the rest of the review. With a heavier slide and recoil spring, the pistol was pretty tight, brand new, and after just a little wearing in, not breaking in, all was well on an empty magazine. We ran about fifty rounds through the JXP with the Liberty Suppressors Cosmic silencer, and there were no issues. You can read the review of that silencer by following this link. All in all, I am satisfied with the pistol as reliable and accurate.

In my experience, Hi-Point builds a safe and reliable pistol that serves its function well. All the gun snobbery is ridiculous for numerous reasons. Gun owners should support one another as we are a family and have enough enemies attempting to take our rights away. If we segregate ourselves into divisions, we are easier to manipulate and have our rights further eroded. Please keep that in mind if you disparage someone on what firearm they have. Everyone has the right to defend themselves, but not everyone has the means to spend a great deal on a firearm, so Hi-Point, an American made firearm with a lifetime warranty, fills that role.
