Talking to Jason's predecessor when I had the first cracked slide in 2010, they were waiting for a shipment of new frames that had been redesigned. I thing those were the Gen 2 frames for prototyping and refinement prior to the Gen 2 release in 2012. The description Don gave me was of a Gen 2 design.

So they don't make their frames in house (pretty much nobody with plastic frames does) and I bet the don't do plastic work at all as that's a completely different technology from machining and I don't think their building is big enough for all that.

I also know they don't make their frame pins. I've been told that about the pin walking issue and that some of the pins they get are slightly off sized. And they have stated they needed to receive more oversize pins to ship to waiting owners at times in the past.

They do machine all their machined parts, barrels, receivers and such, and fold their magazine bodies. You can see all that in pictures and videos.

But, make EVERYTHING in-house? Nobody can do that, at least not and have a product someone can afford to buy.

Take it all up with SCCY. After all, it's their marketing statement.

Nobody here can answer any of your questions or complaints. If you do ask SCCY and get an answer, please share it with us.

Got the new rear sight today, a lot better. It's actually cut like the dovetail, but it's still very loose. I still used a shim on the front edge to make it sit down further into the dovetail. But I don't think it likely to pop out like the first two. Thank you SCCY for sending out the parts so fast, especially Denise

I've never moved my rear sight.
It sits very level, and less than 0.010" above the bottom of the dovetail in the slide.
In the light that passes beneath it, I can see the setscrew post at the center, holding it up into the dovetail.
It shoots consistantly dead-on straight at 20ft, and about 2" high, with random ammo.
Perhaps someday I'll shim it down, but it's been perfectly secure where it is, and plenty accurate at close range.
hth Cheers!

Had my SCCY out today along with my DB9. The SCCY shoots like a smooth dream compared to the DB9. The recoil on the DB9 is a violent action in comparison to the cpx-2. Anyway the both shot flawless. I got lucky in finding two great small 9's at the $200 mark

Just a quick 6 month update. My CPX still shoots flawlessly. Primarily using 115gr fmj and HP ammo. A variety of manufacturers. Brass case and steel cased dirty Tulammo, it still just keeps chugging away. Not a real high round count, probably 250 to 300 rounds but not one malfunction. Still getting used to the trigger and it's travel, but very happy with this pistol so far.
