Short High-Point C-9 Range Report
Hey just wanted to post a short report about my new C-9. I have look at one of these, for quite some time and finaly picked one up today. I wanted a handgun that I could leave in the back of my truck and not worry about. This was my solution.
I had heard some report about the accuracy of the pistols, that they were not bad and able to hold a good group. After buying the little guy I went straight to the range. I thought that I would just lay 50-60rds through it to start the break-in process.
As I pulled it out of the box, everthing felt good, looked tight. Overall there is pretty good quality for the price of the gun. Even though I have larger hands the gun still has pretty good ergonomics. I saw that there is a optional peepsight that might be fun to try later.
Everthing (action, mag spring) was stiff as I expected. Loaded the mags (I picked up an extra) and proceded to let loose.
I was amazed that it had the kick that it did. Did not expect that from the heavier gun, but then this does only have the 3 1/2 in barrel.
After I put a couple rounds I really started looking at where the bullets were landing. I noticed that everthing was way low and to the left. This was only from 20yrds and I still was almost off the target.
I pulled my aim up and right, that helped and I was much closer but still off by 6-8in. Did not have time to do any adjustment, but thought it would have better out of the box. I do not think that this is normal I was putting Winchester 115 grain FMJ through it. This is a load that my XD9 likes so I was thinking it would not be too bad. I was told that sometimes the C-9's like to hang up on hollow points so I did not even bother. When I get more time I will actually put a couple more boxes through and see what happens. Would be curious if anyone else has had this happen to them. Mind you I did not use a rest, but I should be pretty close to at least hitting the target at 20yrds.
