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.
