Hi-Point is cheap because they're fairly low quality. Used to own a 9mm made by them. It came with a misplaced magazine release spring that cause it to try to release every time I pulled the trigger. After I fixed that it worked really well as long as I only used rounded point ammo in it. It really really didn't like hollowpoints and would jam with them regularly.
That said I've heard they've improved quality since I had mine (got it for a 20th birthday present and I'm 26 now so...).
