What's wrong with using glue?

The skirt at the bottom of the 1st stage of the Peacekeeper ICBM was glued on. It held the weight of the missile in the launcher. Worked well enough for an ICBM with several nuclear bombs as the payload.

Just another update! I called sccy service again they are sending me out new pins. After I got off the phone this morning I went and shot another 100 rounds of wwb, and 2 boxes of Tulammo. Front pin walked out ever 3 magazines only about 3/8 an inch. Pop it back it bang bang walked out again. I did notice my ejector is really loose ( side to side)...with a round count upwards of 350 and its chambered and ejected every single round flawlessly. Point of impacts high at 7 yards and a tad high at 15 yards smooths out at 25 yards. Thanks

Ejector side to side play is normal with a CPX. Has been since the beginning.

I figured it was within specs lol so far so good with it eating everything. One think I did notice my father-in-law has the same cpx-2 his guide for is flush with the end of the slide. My guid rod seems to protrud I/8 of an inch past the slide. If you put it barrel first in the table the guide rod will hit the table first. Again not a reliability issue haut a general question if anyone has any insight on that subject. I thought about getting my local machine shop to make front serrations on the front of the slide mainly on the right hand side..would sccy frown on that if it goes in for service?

Having the pin walk out when the rounds eject is not "flawlessly" - like saying "it ejected ever round flawlessly, but the gun blew up"

Just saying...

I walk the line...

SCCY has used about 5 different versions of recoil rod assembly since 2010. You may just have a different version than your Father In Law.

I just took a good look at mine. It sticks out slightly beyond the slide, about the same as the muzzle but no farther than the muzzle does.
