Anyway, I've seen several videos and read reviews and most opinions are that the trigger is terrabad, it's fairly light so easy to carry, and for the money it's not a bad gun and the warranty is good.
The SCCY's have been out for a while now, what do people think of them? Have you had any experiences with the customer service department and were they good/bad?


I didn't find the right solution from the internet.

This entire forum is the answer to this very general question.

The trigger being "terrabad" is very subjective. Do you expect a nice light single action trigger? You will be disappointed. Do you expect a rather heavy, smooth, double action only trigger that takes about 9 pounds of pull? You will be delighted.

I love the trigger. It's just how I want a carry pistol to be. Range guns can have weak triggers, but a DAO on a carry pistol should be strong, which is what the SCCY's is.

I like it. I carry it most days. I've not had a failure with it. The mag springs are tough because they're made to be compressed most of the time. If you can't load 10 in a magazine, load 7-8 and leave it for a few days. Unload it, and when you reload it 10 should go in just fine. Weak springs in a carry gun's mag will cause FTF's over time, so you actually want stiff springs, but that's another thing people complain about.

For a general carry, 10+1 9mm compact pistol, there's really not a better option out there.

I agree, I've had mine for awhile and it's been great.

Well, actually, almost all gun manufacturers believe that overly stiff springs are the cause of FTF's.

I like mine so much that I just bought another one! The trigger is like a fine revolver trigger, and the size is perfect for concealed carry.

SCCY CPX-2. Any good?

Postby ursamajor » Sun Mar 25, 2018 2:54 pm

It’s a CCW. That means carried much, shot little. I CCW’d a Smith and Wesson 442 for years. So I am used to DAO triggers.

It is not a range gun/recreational shooter. But it is a hell of a lot more pleasant to shoot than the Airweight.

I had some hiccups early on-one that required the gun to make a trip in to Sccy for warranty repair. I did go with a heavier spring, and new guiderod. The gun runs flawlessly now. and I’ve run it hard-as to build unwavering confidence in its reliability.

In short, I like it.

I leave mine full all the time. Will my spring get too weak?

Eventually, yes. That happens with all mags. You really only want to have the ones you're currently 'using' (whatever that means for you) loaded, and then cycle them out to empties every couple of weeks. For instance, I have 4 mags. 2 are always loaded. About once a month I switch them out and load the 2 other mags and swap them out.

Springs weaken with use, not by staying compressed. I have a Ruger Mk1 that is stored loaded since 1969. A Glock since 1984. Springs are fine. Long guns are generally left cocked when stored with no problem.

It sounds like you don't understand how a mag's springs go bad. You won't know that the "springs are fine" on either of those mags until you go and try to shoot them. I'm betting they aren't fine at all. Enjoy your weakened springs and FTFs. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

When I said store loaded I didn't mean unfired. Shot the Glock last week and the Ruger a few months ago. No malfunctions. My 1944 Mosin shoots fine and as I pointed out, is returned to the safe with bolt closed and firing pin spring compressed. Does anyone decock their striker fired pistols, their shotguns or rifles? Not claiming to be an expert, just an old guy sharing my experience.
