1st pistol cpx-1

Postby Chilleo59 » Sun Oct 09, 2016 1:31 pm

So I finally got to the range to fire today. I have a 2nd Gen cpx-1. Over all I like it. This is my first hand gun. The main issue I'm having is the wings for the saftey. I fired 100 rounds at range no jams no malfunctions. But my thumb is raw. Ripped my skin off from hitting the wings. Anyone have any advise or mods to do to help me out. I'm in no way a great shot with a pistol but didn't do to bad. This was at 25 yards.

Send the pistol back to mom for conversion to a CPX-2.

You want more info.
Remove the left guard if your right handed.
You'll notice that when firing you just might engage the safety.
The work around is to trim a certain part that's in the housing.
I'm not going to say anymore.......

Hey, you hit the bad guy. When you come down to it that's the objective. Practice, you'll get better. 8)
It's not the blast that kills you - It's the tumble to the bottom of the 800 foot crater.....

Thanks for response. Yea only other pistol I shot other than this one was the Beretta m9. That was for military. But that was just kinda messing around on the range with extra rounds we had.
