I love this pistol

Postby Mich_9mm » Mon Feb 27, 2006 1:49 pm

I just got back from my first range session with the CPX-1.  I did not expect much since I was going to shoot 100 WWB only today.  I even took my bersa so if the CPX-1 started jamming too much I could still fill up my 1/2 hour.  I had no failures what so ever at the range.  That was surprising enough,  but I couldn't beleive how accurate this pistol really is.  Now I did all my shooting at 21 feet,  but still I am more accurate with this pistol then I am with the bersa.  Now don't get me wrong,  it is not fun to shoot 100 rnds with this size of pistol,  but it was still a pleasure.  Next week 100 more WWB and some JHP that I will use for carry.

Can't beat the CPX-1.
Right?
It will beat the hell out of your hand after 100 rnds, but no worse than you would expect from a compact 9.
Maybe even a little less than expected.

Glad you had a good shoot.

Thet do shoot well.  I ran 100+ downrange, and no sore hand.  Lucky I am.

The pistol is a bit abrasive on the hands isn't it?! Funny thing is.. Lilly complains a little about her wrist getting sore after 75 rounds or so.. (She is a girl...) now me.. The pistol doesn't hurt my wrist at all.. but my proximal phalangeal metacarpal joint (the knuckle on my thumb) takes a beating!!! I think it's because I have big hands.. and big feet.. and you know... (do the math!!!)

We'll leave that to Lilly :wink:
But you're right. I get dings on my last joint sometimes. I got it dis-jointed as a kid, and it is larger than the left hand.
Someone else posted a picture of the same nick on the thumb awhile back.

Let us know how it goes

Postby skyy-pilot » Wed Mar 01, 2006 11:40 am

Keep us informed on your range trips. I plan on running a few 100 more through mine before I try a carry load. So far a great little pistol. BTW what kind of defence load are you going to try please let us know. Have a great day Dan.

At the moment I have Remington  JHP, but after what I have been reading, I will proably switch to Federal Hydra-shock when these are gone.

 I shot 50 more rounds of wwb today with no problems.  I then shot 22 rounds of Federal 124 gr hydra-shok with no problems.  I am on a waiting list for some ranger T 147 gr boxes.  So I will carry the Federals until I have a chance to try the ranger Ts.

Carry load

Postby skyy-pilot » Wed Mar 01, 2006 8:25 pm

I currently carry 124 gr gold dots in my cz-75 pcr. And sometimes 124gr golden sabres. Im going to try the new hornady TAP loads in both guns when I get a chance. Have a great day Dan. Awesome little pistols arent they. :D

I got the talon grips, still had a random issue with it love biting the inside of the webbing between my thumb and pointer. Seems like different rounds would bite more like perfecta and mag tech. White box wasn't as aggressive on my hand. Grips do help out a bunch, just doesn't eradicate the feel. Besides the issues I listed previously, not going to call it a horrible gun yet.


Original poster, have you crossed over into the 500 and up round mark yet?

It appears that the OP had a Skyy CPX-1 from 10+ years ago.

Bought mine just over 2 years ago and by the serial numbers it was current production at that time.

I now have 3 to 4 thousand rounds thru it, mostly reloads, only FTF was when working up reloads. Other than that it has and is flawless.

Yes I did replace the recoil spring with a slightly heavier one, reason, to cut down on felt recoil.
