Hi Point Creates Solution to Keep Pistol Caliber Carbines CA Legal

Hi-Point carbines are now legal in California again.

The California legislature’s NEW firearm restrictions now make pistol grip carbines illegal there. Fortunately for California carbine lovers, Hi-Point has a solution-the Hi-Point California-compliant carbine and retro fit kit.

Hi-Point, maker of the most popular and affordable carbine of their type in the country, created a California-only version of its carbine without the threaded barrel and with a modification that meets the state’s new requirements.

The factory-installed “California-compliant Paddle” is a flat panel attached to the pistol grip that eliminates the full pistol grip function and feel.

Hi-Point California-compliant carbines come in 9mm, .40 S&W, .45ACP and 10mm, and the base MSRP of all California Compliant calibers will increase between $45 and $50, depending on model, configuration, and caliber. And as with any Hi-Point carbine or hand gun, compliant carbines can be purchased through any local gun shop or FFL sporting goods store in California.

More good news: Hi-Point carbine owners can retrofit their existing Hi-Point carbines to comply with California law! Existing Hi-Point carbines are NOT grandfathered in, so to stay legal in California Hi-Point California carbine owners can purchase the compliance paddle and attach it themselves.
