Greetings from Southern Illinois

Postby Lefty Red » Wed Jan 18, 2017 10:00 pm

Hi, former brand snob here. Was turned on to these wonderful pistols about two weeks ago. Since then I have about 1500 rounds of crappy old reloads and new reloads and steel and aluminum cases through my Sniper Grey and SS SCCY. Have not had a malfunction that wasn't caused by a limp wrist or ammo related. Everything is broken in and cleaned and it's my new carry weapon when my holster gets here.

Thank you, I just left Leesburg FL in November. Well, was just visiting. Moved my elderly Mom back up to SEMO so she would be closer in case she gets ill again. Hated to leave the weather.

LOL, my Mom use to tease me with the weather reports of "low 60s" when it's -10 here!

Yep, I'm really impressed with it. Put 200 more more thru it today (older reloads that had to be used up) and no malfunctions that wasn't ammo caused. That was the worste batch of primers I got from CCI! Glad they are gone!

It got a good cleaning and the mags too. It will be my carry pistol when holster gets here.

Oh, I did notice the front frame pin was out a bit on the right side. Tapped it back in and will keep any eye on it but doubt it will work back out. It was a chore tapping it back in the 1/4" or was out, and won't be using the higher pressure loads I had set up.

Howdy and welcome from NC. Glad you found us.

Hope you enjoy your CPX pistol and never actually need to use it.

Greetings from Ft. Worth, TX

I am originally from Southern Illinois, left there to join the U.S. Air Force and glad I never went back.

I have had my Sccy for about 4 months now and I have never had a malfunction with it. Carry it almost daily, wherever legal.
