The carbines also recognize the service of active duty and veteran U.S. military personnel as well as first responders. Members of these groups can receive a free magazine for their carbines along with special Hi-Point gear if they submit qualifying identification to MKS Supply, the distributor of Hi-Point firearms, after the purchase of one of these carbines. Instructions on how to fulfill this offer are included with each gun.
