I don't have any experience with the guns. Is your disagreement based upon actual experience or conjecture based upon price and appearance or what other people said?
All I know about the hi-points is that they are ugly, and while somewhat cheap you can often find military surplus guns for similar prices, cheaper, or sometimes only marginally more expensive.
While I have absolutely no experience with them, I have heard of a lot of pleased owners, especially of the carbine. I've also heard of some people that didn't like them mainly due to their clunkiness. A lot of people say the company has a great warranty.
