Instructional videos on Disassembly of slide and frame...

ChrisTX was nice enough to create a couple of instructional videos dismantling the slide and the frame of the CPX Gen 2.

***NOTE: If you are inexperienced at this type of work, you may not be able to get your pistol re-assembled or may re-assemble the pistol incorrectly which may result in harm or death***

Attempt this type of work at your own risk!

Your SCCY CPX Pistol comes with a full Lifetime Warranty. It is recommended that you exercise this Warranty and allow SCCY to perform all work on your pistol.

Neither ChrisTX or this Forum is responsible for the results of trying to follow these videos!!

Now, with that out of the way... Here are the two videos...

I think you'll find the Gen 1 slide comes apart the same as in the video (at least mine did when I replaced the Extractor).

The Gen 1 and Gen 2 CPX-1 frame work is also the same (Gen 1 = CPX-1) with one exception. The Hammer Pivot Pin doesn't come out quite the same as on a CPX-2. The CPX-1 has a Safety. The Safety Index Pin (spring loaded pin that makes the safety "click") is inside the Hammer Pivot Pin so the Safety Lever Screw in the Left Safety Lever must be removed and the Left Lever to allow the Hammer Pivot Pin to come out. This really doesn't matter as you don't need to remove the Hammer to remove / replace the Trigger Cam. See page 29 of the SCCY Manual to see how these pieces go together. BTW - the Frame Pins are slightly larger diameter in a Gen 1 pistol but remove / replace the same.

And yes - nice videos! 8)

1st of all:

Now to your question...
There is a loop in the bottom of the barrel, the pin MUST go through that loop.
If you have the pin through the loop and it's the last 1/10 of an inch, then you may need to slide the slide slightly back or forward if the notch for the pin (or really the slide lock) is slightly off.. The pin should be centered in the notch on the side of the slide..
Also make sure the flat side of the part you use to pull the pin is pointed upwards. The slide moves across that flat spot...
WIthout pictures or a slightly better description, it's a little hard to know where you are stuck at...

How far did you take it apart?? Field strip, or did you take out the slide stop lever and spring also? The slide stop lever spring is what the take down pin "snaps" into, this spring fits into a small area that needs to be as far forward (towards the muzzle) as possible to be in the correct position. Like has been mentioned make sure the flat side of the take down pin is on the top against the bottom of the slide.
YOUR LACK OF PLANNING IS NOT MY EMERGENCY.......

in the second video he turns the trigger reset spring 180°, what does this do for the trigger exactly?

think I found my answer "This used to be billed as a way to increase the tension on the trigger to let the shooter feel a more positive reset. Not enough to add to the trigger "weight" (9 lb trigger pull) but gave a better feel as you released the trigger. Help to prevent short stroking the trigger reset."
Where are we going and why are we in this hand basket?
