After owning this gun I will never say that another gun is good until I put over a thousand rounds through it.


Interesting. That's one of my assumptions as well. Many SCCY's are bought and then quickly put away, assumed to be in good working order.

I guess I'm in the middle ground on a used purchase. House gun that gets shot biweekly at the range. The warranty is what had me sold on it. I didn't plan on making it my main rig, I had my eye on a few guns. I keep finding decent 1911's that are sold the second I get the notion to buy. Either way I'm gonna hold on to it for as long as I can as a back up.

500 rounds I had the front pin walk and feed issues for about 8 rounds using PerFecta. White box Remington ran flawless for me.

As you can see from my join date I have had a SCCY since then. They are a fine pistols.I have 4. Reliable and fit my hand well. You can Google any manufacture and find problems with their gun and owners. Most people who go to forums are there because they have problems with their gun. SCCY also has great Customer Service. Great company.

I might as well throw my two cents in. I've had mine since Aug 2012 and the only issue was with the recoil spring assy. Made a call to SCCY and a couple days later had the replacement. While some others have had issues, I've not had any since. I pull the trigger and it goes bang, consistently. I get the best performance, tightest groups, with HST 124gr and about the same with Blazer Bronze 124gr. That's about all I run through it ... no steel, no +P and I've got well over 1000 rounds through it. It's a nice little piece for the money and what I need it for. I'm good with double tapping a 4 inch square at 15 feet because if I'm walking through a parking lot and a threat presents itself, I feel confident that I can handle it. Any further than that, I probably shouldn't be shooting at anyway.

As for the business model, there are probably enough folks out there who have purchased a SCCY who have not needed the warranty ... whether they shoot it or not is not isn't on SCCY but it's comforting to know that SCCY will stand behind their product if need be.

Just about 200 rounds thru mine. Perfect function. Good accuracy. I like it. This forum seems to be occupied by unhappy customers,which is unfortunate. May I suggest reading customer feedback at Bud's, Cabelas, Classic etc. Spoiler alert, they are way more positive than posters here.

This, yes this in a big way.

I owned and shot revolvers for a good amount of time before picking up a SCCY. So the trigger on the CPX-2 is not an issue for me. For the new owners who are having problems, get a revolver...it's a great training tool before handling a SCCY.

I have a starter pistol that has a extremely unrealistically heavy pull and used that. Kinda like throwing basket balls at a wall just before using an actual dodge ball in competition when younger.

I actually came here to see what people were doing to make them better than stock. All my issues came after reading the stuff here. They seemed nice on the phone and hope they are when repairing the gun.

The steering on my truck is a little hard...maybe I should buy a 1952 Plymouth to train myself on that.
Interesting advice.

Ha. I'll take a '52 Dodge Power Wagon. They don't make 'em like they used to, for good reasons.

'79 Daytona 500, race day, '52 DPW wrecker, in sloow creeper gear, full length thru infield lake, the crowd roared!
Cops followed on both shores, stopped in middle of the lake, waving huge flag, finally got to shore, they let us go!
Ten of us on that truck, all had a bottle of something, nothing could stop it. Ha! Memories.
Looked similar to this '50, but all black ... http://www.hankstruckpictures.com/pix/t ... _jolly.jpg

200 rounds is one shooting session for the average person. Are you really going to base your opinion of this gun on only 200 rounds?

At 200 rounds, my cpx2 was on its first trip back to Florida.
It did fire 140 rounds without any failures once, because I learned to use shorter ammo.
That was its only flawless range day. Well, except for the cracked frame. But I didn't find that until later. :|
Sure hope they're built better now, because it couldn't be much worse without somebody getting hurt.

When I got my gun 200 was enough to make me feel confident the gun works. 700 later I'm like how much can I get for this gun? When they told me a atrocious number, I decided to just hold on to it. I'll just keep sending it off to be fixed and hold it as a back up since pocket carry is perfect compared to the gun I really want. I'm still confident 3 rounds will cycle if I needed it right now before I send it off at the end of the week.

I was singing its praises myself until 640 rds. After that it just kept breaking every 2 to 3 hundred. Every other range trip something on mine broke.

You'll likely get more for your used cpx on Armslist (if your local laws allow) than at a LGS.

I picked-up some ammo at Rural King, and held a 738 TCP again ... sweeeet ... not as tiny as I had remembered.
Also held a 709 ... felt top heavy, but it was empty of course.

It looks like it could have been a $500-600 gun easily, especially when I added the rubberized grips.

Yeah, I had rubber grip tape on mine, too. Looked great. Felt great.
Then the frame cracked. Disappointing.

I was gonna use it twards my 1911 purchase later this week(end). I figured if I send it off I may just get a "New gun" feel and different color. That way if I change my mind later it will at least be fixed and more desirable than a Plain Jane CB.

In all seriousness, I found out about this gun through my nephew. He had an identical one 4 months newer purchased new tested by the same guy and has the same key for the gun lock(s).
