Holy this is magical:

custom-hi-point

The story behind it:

This is the Hi-Point JHP Block II. It has become a project of mine and a friend (the owner of this beautiful piece of American engineering). This is the product of our dreams, as both of us have thought of doing this for the longest time.

It began life as a Hi-Point JHP, but we firmly believe in improving stock products, so enter the Hi-Point Customs Hi-Point JHP Block I. The Block I featured ghost ring sights, a high speed 2.5lb match trigger, a custom stippled handjob, a custom finish, and we modified 1911 magazines to function in this fine handgun (which funny enough, has been exceedingly more reliable than the stock magazine).

Unsatisfied, we moved on to create the Block II, which involved a hand fit tactical barrel extension and a single chamber muzzle brake (dubbed T-Brake).

To couple with these upgrades, we have also tortured it, and it refuses to stop, much like George Zimmerman and Donald Trump. This gun cannot be flimflammed or stumped. From washing machines to throwing contests in mud, firing .38 spl, firing ammunition that fails to headspace, and only having been cleaned in said washing machine, this gun will not stop working.

We have also developed custom ammunition, specifically designed for lethal kinetic deployment, as well as shrouding yourself for concealment and tactical surprise. Other than that, we have also pioneered custom ammunition we call the “16” Mk.7.” This proprietary blended ammunition features compressed smokeless powder that is accelerate by not just the primer, but by a small charge of blackpowder as well (much like the 16″ Mk.7 loads seen on battleships).

The muzzle brake in action hahahha:

custom-hi-point-2Oh lawd hahhaha.  There is so much win… you have to click through to see all the pics on Imgur.

This almost rivals the Dynamic Pie Concepts Ultimate Hi-Point (almost).  What happened to DPC anyway?  Did Hi-Point make them “disappear”?  *dramatic music*

Thoughts?

Man… “custom Glock Slides” are the new thing apparently.  So many companies making them.

The usual expected “marketing” talk in the video.  Not something I’d buy, but I’m sure PWS throwing their hat in the ring of Glock custom options is probably a decent move considering they already have the manufacturing equipment.  Price is $449 with stock sights.  Meh.. I fail to see how these mods will really help anyone to do anything useful other than make you appear like more of a high speed low drag operator because your Glock slide corners aren’t radius’d, they are 45 degree’d and you have serrations at the front for “press check” as they say at 0:54.  Press checks are such an operational move; especially when you don’t have to be a basic bitch and only grip the slide by the rear serrations. Note that loaded chamber indicators are also for nerds… avoid giving those the time of day at any cost.  The original Glock slide wasn’t broken… don’t fix it.  Rant over.

Glock-Diamond-Bedazzled-Pendant-JewelryOn another note, I was shocked at the YouTube comments.  People were actually asking PWS to bring back “Half Cocked” (that cartoon trainwreck).  I didn’t do any secondary research on the commenters but something tells me they must be PWS employees or involved in the cartoon in some other fashion haha.

Thoughts?  Do you smell a Kickstarter in the works to bring Half Cocked back?

Star Wars nerds will probably shit a brick over this:

Boba-Fett-Glock

Cool I guess… unless you’re a hardcore Boba Fett fanboy though it just looks like you gave a two year old some paint and the Glock.

GOE Gun Works, who coincidentally have one of the most terrible sites I’ve ever seen can paint one like it for you.  I’m assuming they can anyway… It’s in their “gallery”.

Can you imagine all the girls who would bother you for your autograph if you walked around with a Boba Fett Glock in this Boba Fett kydex holster?  It would be out of hand.

Thoughts?

An awesome custom creation by OTG Holsters:

Kydex-Bobba-Fett-Star-Wars-Holster

If you know Star Wars you should recognize that as Boba Fett’s helmet.  The holster was custom made for shooter and Star Wars nerd Nikki Raye‘s Glock.

As a proof of concept I like the idea a lot!  Nice to see company’s taking on fun custom jobs like this.

Thoughts?

Does the thought of empty picatinny rail space makes you sad?  DERP up your rifle!

A confidence boost knowing Buck Yeager approves whatever OP I’m currently engaged in:

Vigilant Spectre reminding me to “Stay Vigilant”, because sometime even the best of us forget:

You can pick from a lot of different snap-on options over at the Custom Gun Rails website for around $25.  *add witty internet nerd criticism about running the site on a subdomain and having nothing on the main domain, the fact they use a low end template and the navigation is shit, the company logo is some rookie lolz, and more general asshole-ish observations*

The above two examples are definitely what I’m going to write the company about sending me.

I’m really surprised Arm-Tape-Costa-Lupus hasn’t jumped on this bandwagon yet.  He could rep all sorts of operator brand logos during classes, getting paid just to show up.

One last thing, this line from the Custom Gun Rails website product pages kill me:

Our products have been deployed with Special Ops and conventional units all over the world and the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive.

Special Ops?  Guys, are you sure you didn’t mean Special Olympics?  I can’t see why special ops units would use something as frivilous as this.  Oh wait never mind… they probably have the BLACK OPS ones.

Thoughts?
