See Hi-Point’s New California-Compliant Carbine

Hi-Point is showcasing their new solution to California’s draconian gun laws. It’s a “paddle” that attaches to Hi-Point carbines making them lawful in the Golden State.

“The factory-installed ‘California-compliant Paddle’ is a flat panel attached to the pistol grip that eliminates the full pistol grip function and feel,” said Hi-Point in a press release.

Along with the addition of the paddle, Hi-Point ditched the threaded barrel on the gun to meet the state’s new requirements.

“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,” it continues.

What’s also cool is that current owners of Hi-Point carbines can purchase paddles and attach it themselves to comply with California law. Unfortunately, existing Hi-Points weren’t grandfathered in so to stay legal the paddle has to be added.

MKS Supply, Inc. is asking current carbine owners to call them at their Dayton, Ohio offices: 937-454-0383 for information and pricing on the compliance paddle.

New customers do not have to contact MKS Supply, they can simply purchase compliant carbines though any local gun shop or FFL in California.

For more information visit the MKS Supply, Inc. website.

    I am assuming you are Americans, so not supporting other Americans in their quest to be free is going to make you even weaker. All Americans should fight against the shadow government who wishes to subject all of its citizens to a NWO, against states like Ca, NY, Wash, Co, Mich. Some of us have lived our whole lives here, only to have people from outside Ca come in and vote for new laws and such. My family has been here over 100 years, my wife’s has been here almost 200 years and she is not Latino. We love the land, but do not love the government

    Joke of a law and joke calling this a quality firearm. But let the callies enjoy.

  • Adam Jeppson July 28, 2018, 11:44 pm

    “Eye roll” This stuff makes my ass itch.

  • Mikial July 27, 2018, 8:27 pm

    Have you ever noticed just how stupid and useless so many of the dipsh*t Liberal restrictions on guns are. What possible difference could a threaded barrel make in any shooting incident?

    • Bobs your uncle July 28, 2018, 4:40 pm

      Oh really? just thread the barrel on a J.C.Higgins bolt action 22 and criminal acts are sure to follow.

  • Deadmeat99 July 27, 2018, 7:36 pm

    A terrible modification for a terrible gun for a terrible state. Perfect!

  • Bobs your uncle July 27, 2018, 7:12 pm

    My guess is not a single death will be averted or crime prevented with this device or numerous ones like it, so whats the point? It seems as though its simply a slap in the face of gun owners who are being punished by a Government that is incompetent. If people are pissed off they must be doing their job, sorry nope. Just be grateful these people aren’t designing toilets, or other personal items, or?

  • Tom July 27, 2018, 7:06 pm

    Isn’t that just a special kind of California stupid?

  • KMacK July 27, 2018, 3:20 pm

    Here we go again! Every time a maker tries to honestly comply with California’s gun laws, for certain some idiot in the Legislature will write a law making this compliance illegal. Gotta wonder here, why the gun owners in California keep electing these anti-2nd amendment buffoons. I dunno, maybe there’s something in the water in Sacramento…
    At least as long as they’re legal, these carbines look to be winners: decent shoulder-mounted pistol caliber firearms that don’t cost an arm and a leg. About the only other way that carbine to be legal is for it to lose the semi-auto and become a slide operated firearm. Come to think of that, I have one of those: an AK-R (Romanian) in 7.62X39. Odd, AK’s are generally area weapons rather than being high accuracy guns, but mine is a 2 minute at 75 yard rifle, and the trombone action just means I don’t waste bullets. Best of all, it’s one of the rare Ak”s that is legal in California, where I live. The reason this rifle is still legal is most likely because the cops all use pump-action shotguns and the Legislature needs their protection .
    Ahh, California, there’s never a dull day here when the Legislature is in session…or when it isn’t.

  • C.Aldridge July 27, 2018, 2:13 pm

    Gee! I wonder what a criminal would do with it if they stole one? Take the stupid paddle off, of course. It doesn’t look like it is permanently attached.

    Looks like APRIL 1! arrived a tad late in COMMIEFORNIA / MEXIFORNIA this year!

    The designer forget to add the required RAZOR BLADES to the paddle and to the trigger and to the operating handle. Just to make it a tad “safer” for the perps assaulting the victims trying to defend themselves.

    Well look at it this way- when not shooting it you can play ping pong with it.

  • RGE July 27, 2018, 10:39 am

    Yes, yes. Will it microstamp bullets, and alert the police everytime its discharged, and malfunction in times of distress? If not its probably not compliant anyway because in CA they don’t want ordinary people to own guns, they just want their politicians’ bodyguards and police to own guns.

    • Gary MacNeill July 27, 2018, 4:28 pm

      And the bad guys… don’t forget they want the homeless, illegal, drug addicted gang bangers to have guns too.

  • Elliot July 27, 2018, 10:37 am

    Just love having to pay more $$$ to make firearm less effective and less fun to shoot, and even more ugly. Wake up folks and vote these idiots out of office.

  • 1776 Patriot July 27, 2018, 9:29 am

    Well, it looks ugly as homemade sin but if it provides a way for the serfs who have chosen or feel compelled for some reason to remain in this bastion of communist dystopia, to enjoy some modicum of liberty, then so be it. Meanwhile, we need to continue working to support and free the inmates of this progressive paradise before it completely devolves into Venezuela!

  • Cyrus July 27, 2018, 8:56 am

    Just STUPID! As stated by Dilligaf, gun companies should just forget about this State an let the natural course of crime run its own path in this State.

    • FirstStateMark July 27, 2018, 10:12 pm

      Well said. I couldn’t agree more.

  • srsquidizen July 27, 2018, 7:45 am

    Geez the Hi-Point carbine is just a goofy little gun that doesn’t do anything real well (couldn’t at the price) but is fun to shoot. It never ever was designed in any form to be an “assault rifle” used by a military, it just has its own kind of funky tactical styling.

    Great to see Hi-Point is rubbing it in their face what an idiotic law those gun haters on the Left Coast have written. Just goes to show what happens when people who don’t know anything at all about guns start writing the gun laws.

  • Andy July 27, 2018, 5:44 am

    Why not just put a big ping pong paddle as the front sight so you can\’t see anything you want to shoot? Why not have a 4 foot butt stock that you can\’t put on your shoulder to get a stable shooting position?Why are manufacturers making anything that has to be modified for the brain dead of California? If the people of CA used their brains, and I am being generous in assuming they have brains, they would find that it\’s pretty easy to operate a normal non CA compliant firearm. Oh… that\’s right, these modifications are designed to prevent normal law abiding citizens from becoming mass murdering psychopathic serial killers. Clearly CA has not had any such wackos till the introduction of normal operating firearms.The easiest way to operate a normal functioning firearm, is to live in a state where your rights as an American are respected. Why are industries catering to a population that has surrendered their rights to live like normal Americans? Do Californian\’s not have the right to pack up and leave? There is a reason why I don\’t live in NYC anymore.

  • Hugo July 27, 2018, 5:31 am

    Would this version be legal in NY as well?

  • Vash454 July 27, 2018, 5:11 am

    How dumb CA is:
    You can’t have that!
    Um, what if a put this plastic flapy thing on it?
    Duhh…, OK! (then proceeds to wipe the drool from it’s mouth).

  • Mike V July 27, 2018, 2:12 am

    This is awesome! Now we won’t have any mass shootings, gang crime, or any crime for that matter with these paddle grips.

    We should have done this a long time ago!

    • KMacK July 27, 2018, 3:23 pm

      If we’d done this a long time ago, by now the Legislature would have figured out how to make it illegal…that’s a bout all they seem to be able to do outside of making taxes we don’t want.

  • Dilligaf July 26, 2018, 7:36 pm

    I don’t know why firearm companies bother with “calicommiefornia compliant” firearms. It just seems like a waste of time, effort and materials

    • KMacK July 27, 2018, 3:29 pm

      That’s because California’s economy is bigger than most nation-states! We buy things and the firearms makers know this. Seriously, there are ways around any law the Idiots in Sacramento enact and the buying public seems willing to pay the tariff.
      And lay off the Commiefornia noise – no communist country ever managed to make an economy like California’s, ever!
      Personally, I think it’s something in the water in Sacramento – something that turns reasonable people into idiots – that might be the reason for all the “Yuppie-water” that is consumed up there…the control politicians don’t drink the local water.
      And Californians usually have the more modern stuff – we have to. I’m getting one of these carbines to go with my California legal AK (it’s a pump action). Looks like a fun gun.

      • Dilligaf July 28, 2018, 1:18 pm

        Calicommiefornia….plain and simple
