I don't know about the validity of that story about Glock making those but if they do they are making a mistake, hi-points are really crappy guns...I've never owned one but i have had friends own them and they jammed up constantly and weren't accurate for ****...if you can take it back I would....in a situation that could depend on your life I wouldn't want to count on a hi-point. This is my opinion so don't be offended.
Why would he lie to a guy he just gave a gun to? Go in there with it and start waving it around and yell at him for lieing to you and demand your money back, tell him you're keeping the gun too. .... Just kidding of course
