Range Time Cut Short

Postby strider43 » Fri May 27, 2016 10:38 am

My recent trip to my outdoor range was cut short as the slide cracked right where the security guy at the WAC show said it would. This was a replacement pistol that only had a few hundred standard rounds down range. They have sent me a new slide but it wont eject the shells. The first replacement pistol they sent me didn't work out of the box either. I must say Im confused, my instructions didn't indicate that using the pistol was a bad idea.

Check the recoil rod. I cracked 3 slides on my original pistol, all due to worn (chewed) recoil rods. My 2nd Gen pistol has been fine.
It's not the blast that kills you - It's the tumble to the bottom of the 800 foot crater.....

All 3 of mine cracked in the same spot. This was the 1st one.

My replacement pistol is in route ... shipped last Thursday, to be delivered next Tuesday (gone 50 days).
strider43's story is the kind of never-ending trouble I'll quash, when I sell it at a loss as soon as it arrives. Fact.

... toast to peace and sacrifice, pride and regret ... losses are more permanent than wins

There are posters on here who every second post exclaim: "great gun, great gun". You don't appear to have a problem with them.
You need to face the facts that the CPX 3 is the most over hyped, over promised, over committed firerm in history. It could be a Saturday Night skit.

When a firearm has problems... a person should post about that problem... and move forward... move on. But... your needle is stuck... you just keep pissing and moaning and bitching and complaining and whining over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over...
