CPX-3 DOESN'T EXIST

Postby cgray451 » Tue Oct 04, 2016 6:50 pm

First comment here--Does anyone have a problem with a company which promises a new product for TWO YEARS, kicking the can down the road another few months every few months, deletes questions about that new product on Facebook and Instagram, blocks people on Facebook and Instagram for daring to ask about when the new product is going to be released, and...so on. See where I'm going with this? Please discuss.

Ok will a CPX-1 or CPX-2 cycle well with a 380 round?

They had one on Guns & Gear in a segment... They did not shoot it, but were comparing it to another .380.
This does not mean it's available to the public.
I think they missed the mark anyways with this pistol.. It is virtually the same as the CPX-2 except it shoots .380 instead of 9mm..
If I have to carry the same size gun around, why wouldn't I go with the larger cheaper caliber..
They should have made the CPX-3 a single stack slim model so it would be a true pocket carry gun.. (Just my opinion)

My personal opinion is that the "Roebuck Quad Lock" doesn't work. It probably causes the recoil spring to get mangled if the gun isn't perfectly perpendicular with the ground, so if SCCY actually starting selling these things, the repair costs or full-scale recall would probably wind up bankrupting the company. If they admit the gun will never be released, it will be a huge PR hit, so they've just been obfuscating for two years. Happy as hell I sold my piece of junk CPX-2 last year. :lol:

I can understand why you might be frustrated with the wait. I've been holding off trading in one of my vehicles until the Elio comes out and I can actually test drive it. It has been a couple of years in the wait. It is appealing as a run-around-town or short commute vehicle. I have just about given up hope.

I intend to buy a .380 soon. Right now I am leaning towards a Ruger LCP, and if the CPX-3 isn't available it won't be an option.

My sidearm is only used to give me enough time to get to my primary big bang gun. :kickback:

FYI ... the Ruger LCP II was just released a few days ago ... notice the large diameter frame pins ...
http://ruger.com/products/lcpII/specSheets/3750.html


The first generation CPX used 2 large frame pins.
Now, 2 smaller, no-retention, walking needles.
Kel-Tec PF-9 and P-11 each use 3 large frame pins.

CPX frame pins .. 2 loose, 2 small, 2 few .. C'mon man!

Honestly, there are a lot better things in the world to get my rage than a company not releasing a product they discussed. It happens. You sound kind of butt hurt, but that's your prerogative. Many companies don't release products that they've advertised or spent millions developing. I don't take it personally. If you're a .380 enthusiast, there are many .380's on the market right now. I'd suggest putting your energy into researching and enjoying a product that actually exists, instead of one that doesn't.

Per YouTube video, they chamber and fire but won't cycle the slide. On a new gun tho, I'm sure my old guide rod is .380 friendly.

Out of curiosity was the dimensions of the .380 worth it? Is it essentially a CPX-1/2 chambered in .380? If that's the case, why pay more for the rounds than you do on your current 9mms? Will it be less snappy or same boat?

Excellent! They should hire you for Director of Marketing and New Product Development.

Doesn't matter to me if and when the CPX3 is made available. I've got my trusty Bersa Thunder 380 instead.

Yeah a smaller gun would be better so long as they don't put that recoil strap on it. That's my only gripe besides the pin walking and the gun not shooting straight.

I don't see a point, at least one of you paid money to reserve it like the folks did with Elio and a faked plant video release.

My opinion, for what it is worth:
I, like many here, try to be supportive of a new company with what appears to be a great concept. I feel the CPX-3 debacle is indicative of the problem with SCCY. Joe Roebuck is a big talker, with big ideas (some of them good) with no concept of leadership, organization, or consistency. The implementation and execution always appear to be lacking.
The first generation CPX was a good concept, but the execution of that concept was only about 75%. Poor machining, poor quality control, poor inspection led to a disastrous first effort. The second generation better, but the company has failed to correct those little quirks and issues. The leadership and organization is certainly missing.
Confusing and ever changing website, a string of conflicting warranty statements, defects (magazines, pins, recoil rods, slides, rough edges) have continued for years. I keep hearing "great customer service" and, except for a sweet voice answering the phone, that concept is very spotty. Sometimes fixed first time, sometimes not. For longest time advice was to send firearm back through postal service. Sometimes you get a report back what was done, sometimes not. Statements on line conflict with owners manual. Sometimes you can get parts, sometimes not. Sometimes they go to an FFL, only because no one took the time to figure out that isn't required. So, not surprised that the CPX-3 wanders around in limbo for years.
I would like to see SCCY succeed, but they need to take a deep breath and get their sh*t together before moving forward.

That pretty much sums it up for me. Still waiting on parts from my join date but not preventing me from firing the gun.
