any ruger owners have a hipoint c9

I bought one 2 months ago for 150.00 OTD. I thought not bad, brand new 9mm for a good price. It shot fine the first 2 range visits. However, that was it. Now it jams all the time and the mag drops out during cycle. I defended this firearm when I first bought it. I am trying to tweak it. If it still behaves this way after tweaks I am not sending it back.
i will just store it. I have 5 different brand of guns and only this one gives me trouble.
My LC9 is my favorite!

crracer 712 is an unknown quantity at this point
The only one I've had experience with, a 40 s&w, functioned correctly 100% of the time. Same person has a pair of the Carbine rifles, usually had for 250 or so, they've been flawless as well.

Ugly but they worked.

Tell ya what I just unloaded a new Hi-Point it was a one shot wonder!! Pays to do business with a mom & pop dealer. After 3 days of that piece of crap they took it back on trade in and the SR-40 went home with me. Guys don't even think about buying that train wreck know as Hi-Point, they have big problems with there mags & feed ramps. I can't say anything good about them.

My good friend is considering getting a Hi-Point for his wife to practice with. I am trying to talk him out of it...

HP probably has the best guaranty of any firearms manufacturer. It is warranted for lifetime to any owner. Contact HP; they will fix it for you.

The LC9 is what I wanted all along ... I bought a HP C9 in Jan. 2011 when Iowa first went shall issue; even though the LC9 was technically out, I did not know of it. Couldn't have afforded it anyway. HP gives people the chance to own firearms (by being inexpensive). They are great for that, and I appreciate them. Once I got into guns and learned of the LC9, it was time to transition to the Ruger (July).

wellllllll.....I'd take a FREE Hi-POINT 45acp. I don't know why but after watching many videos on youtube I am morbidly curious about whether I could polish, tighten, loosen, tweak one into a 'keeper' of a 45. I guess I love a challenge as much as an underdog as well.

I think there high rate of failure out of the box has made them suspect as a gun I'd want for personnel protection! Even there manual has a sheet telling you the mags are a problem and offer a fix that may or may not be effective. I didn't buy a gun to test my gunsmith knowledge, they know they have issues with these mags why not do a little R&D and come up with better mags and polish there feed ramps at the factory before the customer has too! I'm just very disappointed with this brand, and I couldn't recommend it to any one!

The first test when it failed to fire several times is all I needed to see to convince me I made the right choice when I got rid of it!

I know several people that own them that never have had a problem with them, i have run alot of rounds through several and always been imperessed for how ugly they are.
I have heard that if you have a problem and send it in they send you a new gun no questions, so you might consider that before you shelve it for good.
