So...blue locktite say for 48 hours. 60 rounds through at the range, front pin walked out 1/8 inch. Sent a message to sccy last night and will call them this morning. So much for using this gun for my CC class this weekend :-(

I don't know if this will help but I find blue Locktite to be useless. I never use anything but red on anything needing Locktite.

I just spoke with Charlie at SCCY. Originally he was saying they would send out a couple of magazine cause "that is what the trouble is"...and I don't think so. Not with the frame pin moving like it is. So, they are sending out a shipping label. Returning the gun to them for repair.

I also noticed that the guide rod can aim left or right of the barrel after you put it back in. You can take it out and rotate it a little to get it to line up with the barrel again...has anyone seen this before?

The saga continues...

Don't underestimate the ramifications of defective magazines.
They can be mis-cut, mis-shapen, or the release slot can be mis-located.
They can position the next round too high or too far forward, causing feed failures.
Longer ammo exacerbates the flaws, while shorter ammo masks them.

But like I mentioned before, it's difficult to diagnose, even for the parts swappers at sccy.
Loose frame pins have been a persistent problem for years.
If you have to, keep sending it back.
Yours isn't the first cpx with these same problems, and it won't be the last.

You just need some of those wood shims in there. :lol: dont worry sccy will fix it. If they dont, just keep shipping it back until they replace it. Then sell it. :kickback:

Got notice yesterday that the CPX was on it's way back from Florida. Should have it Friday then we will see what happens. It will be interesting to see what they ended up "fixing".

I'm concerned about all this talk regarding Ammo that does and doesn't work. Shouldn't the CPX1 and 2 be reliable with most all commercially available 9mm ammo? All of my other 9mm pistols are.

Logic would dictate that yes, and while I don't have hard evidence, I am sure that there may be some others that are a little ammo-centric too. One would think that the better affordable known brand ammo would/should shoot fine in any gun.

I'll see what they did to mine when I get it back tomorrow and take it out to the range for a 50-100 round test.

Well...got the cpx back today. Nothing in the box letting me know what they did. I called and spoke with Charlie, who seems like a nice guy. He had to go find the paperwork because they hadn't even updated my ticket in the computer as of yet. And...the gun was DIRTY!

He told me they replaced the extractor, the barrel, and the guide rod as well as putting new pins in and adjusting the magazine's.

So I took it apart to clean it. First thing I notice is the slide is worn...not new. Called them back...sccy said they put at least 20 rounds through the gun. The wear I see is way more than 20 rounds worth. And he stated that they leave it dirty so I know they fired it...say what??

So that being said...I finished cleaning the gun. Put 10 rounds of wwb 115 gr fmj in. Loaded the mag into the gun. Pulled the slide back and let go of it, didn't guide it just let go like I was taught. Guess what...first round hung up on the feed ramp. Tap the back of the slide and in it went. Racked the slide till all the rounds were ejected. No more ftf but I did hear that tell tale delay for the slide to seat. So more of them did not feed correctly.

Not sure if I will put more rounds through this or not. Considering heading to the store to trade it.

Not a happy camper. If I can't trust it I won't carry it, or even keep it.
