Hi-Point has introduced a new firearm to their lineup, the YC-380, as the latest addition for enthusiasts seeking a .380 ACP variant. This model mirrors the functionality of the single-action, blowback YC-9 but is now available in a different chambering. Users will find familiar features such as manual thumb safety and backstrap safety, as well as compatibility with +P ammunition. The firearm comes with a choice of barrel modifications – it can be obtained with 1/2×28 threads at the muzzle for those interested or in a standard format without threads. A Picatinny rail is built into the design, allowing for easy attachment of accessories, and it’s equipped with Glock-style sights.
