When Hi-Point introduced the 1095 TS 10mm carbine, as reviewed here, I expected, i.e., hoped, a 10mm handgun would follow, and sure enough, one did.

I was fortunate to receive the first test sample and broke the story on the brand-new Hi-Point JXP.

I posted a few shorts as we reviewed the pistol, and they were well received.

The Hi-Point JXP has been somewhat redesigned and is quite a bit more attractive than the older handgun design. With a Picatinny rail, forward cocking serrations, redesigned Hi-Point logoed stocks, and new lines, it is a massive step in making the new Hi-Point pistol more visually appealing. All the controls, such as the magazine release and safety, are in the same places. The trigger was as you expect from a Hi-Point with some take-up and a bit mushy as it broke just over six pounds. While it is not a 1911 trigger, it is no better or worse than your average striker-fired handgun. The JXP comes with a ten-round magazine, the same as the 1095 TS 10mm carbine. The barrel is factory threaded .578 x 28, the factory thread for .45 Auto, a more common thread than the 9/16 x 24, which is usually on a .40 barrel.

The sights are a three-dot design with the front sight having a yellow coloration and the adjustable rear sight with orange. If you don’t care for the front sight, it can be swapped out for any other compatible with a Glock. As with all other Hi-Poinfot pistols, a peep sight is included that can be swapped for a rear sight.

Throughout the review, we ran several different types of defensive and range ammunition through the JXP, and in about 350 rounds, there were no malfunctions. However, the slide did not lock back in the first four magazines when we ran it dry. Before fifty rounds were through, the pistol began to slicken up, and the slide locked back reliably throughout the rest of the review. With a heavier slide and recoil spring, the pistol was pretty tight, brand new, and after just a little wearing in, not breaking in, all was well on an empty magazine. We ran about fifty rounds through the JXP with the Liberty Suppressors Cosmic silencer, and there were no issues. You can read the review of that silencer by following this link. All in all, I am satisfied with the pistol as reliable and accurate.

In my experience, Hi-Point builds a safe and reliable pistol that serves its function well. All the gun snobbery is ridiculous for numerous reasons. Gun owners should support one another as we are a family and have enough enemies attempting to take our rights away. If we segregate ourselves into divisions, we are easier to manipulate and have our rights further eroded. Please keep that in mind if you disparage someone on what firearm they have. Everyone has the right to defend themselves, but not everyone has the means to spend a great deal on a firearm, so Hi-Point, an American made firearm with a lifetime warranty, fills that role.

Hi-Point 10mm carbine review

By Hunter Elliott

I spent much of my youth involved with firearms and felt the call early on to the United States Marine Corps, following in my father's and his brother's footsteps. Just after high school I enlisted and felt most at home on the rifle range, where I qualified expert with several firearms and spent some time as a rifle coach to my fellow Marines. After being honorably discharged I continued teaching firearm safety, rifle and pistol marksmanship, and began teaching metallic cartridge reloading. In the late 1990s I became a life member to the National Rifle Association and worked with the Friends of the NRA. Around that time my father and I became involved with IDPA and competed together up until he passed away. I began reviewing firearms for publications in the mid 2000s and have been fortunate to make many friends in the industry. Continuing to improve my firearms skills and knowledge is a never ending journey in which we should all be committed. I am also credited as weapons master on a few independent films.

    1. It goes BANG everytime.. Something other inexpensive guns DONT DO.. Junk means wont go bang.. Its ugly for sure, but for someone on a budget that needs to exersise his 2A, this will do that..

  1. Your Video cinched the deal for me, I bought mine NIB for way below most places.It developed a problem, sent it back and it’s perfect. I trust Hi-Point. They have the nicest people and great products.
    I love the way they fit in my hand and super accurate. All 3 of mine were impulse buys.
    I call them inexpensive but they are never cheap. Inexpensive and quality go together well
