Hi-Point Carbines will introduce a .45 ACP carbine with a 17.5-inch barrel, a black molded polymer stock and a special high-durability black powder coat. The carbine has a nine-round capacity, weighs 7 1 /2 pounds and reaches 33 inches in length.
In addition to improved carbine handling and a longer sighting radius, the longer barrel will increase velocity figures between 80-200fps, especially with +P loads.
The black molded polymer skeletonized stock is lightweight and features a "grabby" surface, regardless of conditions or whether the user is wearing gloves. The carbine has three top-side and forearm bottom Picatinny rails for optional vertical grips, lasers, optics and lights.
The blowback design feeds ammunition from the compact single stack nine-round magazine that is interchangeable with the Hi-Point series of like-caliber semi-auto pistols.
