Meet the custom Hi-Point you should never, ever replicate

In what is likely a monumental case of internet trolling, an Imgur user posted shots of what has to be the most epically foolish and unsafe Hi Point ever made.

“This is the Hi-Point JHP Block II,” writes user Monkeymasher. “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.”

According to the laundry list of improvements the otherwise elegant MKS polymer and Zymak product has been updated with are modified 1911 mags, a “custom stippled handjob,” a custom finish and a hand-fit tactical barrel extension and a single chamber muzzle brake– dubbed the “T-Brake” which looks like it is made from 1/2 inch copper pipe (which you probably shouldn’t use on a firearm for any purpose).

This looks like something you’d find in a head shop…or the clearance shelf at Home Depot

But wait, they also seem to be using hand-loaded .45 ammo loaded with black powder alternating with .38 Special revolver rounds that don’t/can’t/won’t headspace!

What could go wrong?

Srsly? We can’t even believe they held it with human hands to fire it.

Overall, whether real, photoshopped or imagined, this has bad idea written all over it and Monkeymasher’s dream seems more like a nightmare.

Our advice: Kill it. Kill it with fire. Bury it deep. Tell no one.
