Debuting under a glass case at SHOT Show 2019, Hi-Point was on hand this year with a pre-production model of its YC9 pistol.

The YC9 sports some interesting features most consumers might not expect from a Hi-Point. Attempting to pile in what the people want, the company equipped the pistol with a 1/2 x 28 threaded barrel, removable front sight and elongated sight base that supports the addition of a Picatinny rail for red dots.

In addition, the YCP is outfitted with an ambidextrous mag release, grip safety and some new retexturing on the grip. Hi-Point also took a stab at a little customization, serving up a backstrap that can fit either flush or be turned around to offer a little more girth for that grip.

No exact ship date has been set for the YC9 but the company told Guns.com they hope to see it ship later in 2020. MSRP is projected to hover around a very affordable $200.
