For more information, please visit Hi-Point.

While the Hi-Point C-9 pistol has remained largely unchanged for years… …at SHOT Show 2020 they have jumped into the 21st Century! Introducing the YC-9, or as it’s more affectionately known, the Yeet Cannon.

1/2×28 Threaded barrel, for options…

Hi-Point has introduced a lot of new features to this pistol chambered in 9mm. To include front cocking serrations, a 1/2×28 threaded barrel for muzzle devices or suppressors and an accessory rail built into the frame, fitting most lights designed for sub-compact pistols, such as the Streamlight TLR7.

After removing the rear sight, you can install a section of Pic rail, allowing for the mounting of optics.

They have also re-engineered the magazines. They will be a 2 to 1 stack magazine featuring a 10+1 round capacity. Also new is the sighting system. You can replace the rear sight with a section of Pic rail, allowing for most any optic to be placed on the pistol.

Additionally, the front sight is compatible with Glock’s and other aftermarket sighting options, opening up all kinds of possibilities, be it fiber optic or tritium.

The YC-9 features front slide serrations and a front sight that shares the same pattern as Glock, opening up the ability to switch the front sight out with any Glock compatible sight.

Also, listening to feedback from customers, they got rid of that rattle. When you shake a C-9 pistol you can hear the sear safety rattle. They have forgone that in favor of a backstrap safety on the YC-9.

The new backstrap safety eliminates the previous rattle of the sear safety on the C-9.

The new YC-9 also has a wrap-around textured rubber grip. To include interchangeable backstraps, with either a flat or rounded option.

While the MSRP isn’t set in stone, they are working at bringing the new pistol out at around $200 between Q2 and Q3. Get ready for the Yeet Cannon!

The frame accessory rail will fit a number of lights such as the Streamlight TLR7.

    Hello, I am still in the market for a C9-YEET Cannon. Will the C-9 YEET be available for the fall season and what is the cost ? I usually have my orders delivered to Cabela’s in Henrico VA.
    Thank you for the gun if it can be shipped to Cabel

    When I’m finished with the American people you’ll be lucky to find a Hi-Point… or any gun for that matter. If I am elected President I intend to rule with an iron fist, if that includes rescinding the Constitution then so be it.

      I love how frightened and alone you feel.

    “YEET CANNON” came from a the Mfr Promotion, very few were so labeled thought the “YC” remains. I’ve always called Hi-Points Brick on a stick for their weight distribution a appearance. They are Reliable, appropriately accurate for Minute of BG use and budget friendly. Only foolish people would try to compare it to firearms that are not its competitors. The YC is an upgrade from its decades old design but it buyers are going to be the same as before wanting budget friendly reliability in a utility handgun. A few will get optics mounted and some youtuber will try a suppressor for 60 seconds but it won’t be anyone permanent suppressor host. Truck, boat, house, toolbox gun. Far too many people criticize what it is not instead of appreciating what it is. VMMV

    I knew a guy who brought a large home in the sticks. It would be his family’s compound during a SHTF contingency. He stocked it up with food, water, supplies and weapons. His choice for his weapons cache was low cost Hi Point pistols and Carbines plus Stevens pump shotguns. He chose these weapons for its cost and functionality. He had enough guns to equip 16 family members (handgun and one rifle or shotgun). Hi Point handguns are big, but in a static defense who cares? You are not going to CCW that around the compound.

      He should have included some cheap but sturdy revolvers like the Rock Island/Armscor. If it gets down to reloading with whatever substandard stuff you can get your hands on, the results are far more likely to be usable in a wheel gun (.38 Special cases can even be loaded with black powder like they were originally).

  • Link Lackluster January 22, 2020, 8:03 am

    I’ll buy one and keep it in the truck. Cheap. Ugly. Inaccurate. But it’ll go bang if someone comes to the window to do harm.

    • Mr. Sparkles January 22, 2020, 11:45 am

      Cheap, yes. Ugly, yes. Inaccurate, not if you shoot it the way you should any gun you intend to use, and that is with practice.

  • Evan January 22, 2020, 5:21 am

    So basically, Hi-Point gilded the turd and gave it the dumbest name of any gun on the market. And stupid people will buy them.

    • Gary Snead January 22, 2020, 7:32 am

      You don’t have to like the pistol, but calling people who buy it, “stupid”, is just elitist. I own four Hi Points. They’re ugly and heavy, but they shoot reliably, accurately, and are nearly indestructible, and I own four from .380 to .45 ACP, for probably less than your favorite top shelf pistol!

      • Area52 January 22, 2020, 8:12 am

        Why not just save up and buy one good quality pistol than buy 4 cheap pieces of junk?

        • Daddio7 January 22, 2020, 1:53 pm

          Uhh, you are poor and only need one gun now?

      • Leetrav January 22, 2020, 1:44 pm

        Hi Point is American made & from my experiences 1000% reliable. IF you have them stolen from vehicle or whatever…the loss is less painful than your ‘snob gun’ being lost. So…American made, priced right & reliable… What’s not to love.

      • Mark Platson January 22, 2020, 2:29 pm

        Agreed. Most, if not all people that I`’ve talked to with negative impressions of Hi-point weapons have neither owned or even shot a Hi-Point anything. I own several and, they perform on par with my higher end ($800-$1200 dollar range) on every parameter.

    • John B January 22, 2020, 7:56 am

      Well if you wanna put it accurately… Then yes, you’re correct!
