Feed issues ?

Postby RJR573 » Fri Oct 27, 2017 5:03 pm

Does anyone else have feed issues with their CPX 2?
Occasionally mine will only feed a round about half way into the chamber even when using Full Metal Jacket ammo.
To me it seems like the recoil springs could be a little stiffer so they would feed new rounds in with more Force... Also my CPX ejects empty brass about twice as far as most all my other pistols which also is a sign of a weak recoil spring.
I'm wondering if anyone makes stiffer recoil springs for these pistols ?

Same for mine. Just a bunch of minor issues like that. Doesn't matter, don't really like it, too many little issues. Throwing the brass fair and wide and random is not looked on favorably at the range. Picked up a Taurus 111. Cost less, far superior. Not a single prob. Think tha't's my keeper.

Yup the pt111 g2 is a excellent pistol for the 199.00 they sell for at most places.. I got mine for that price with free shipping from Palmetto State Armory about a year ago and think it's an absolutely fantastic gun with many rounds down range and zero issues so far....
I just bought the cpx-2 because I had some extra money laying around and been wanting to try one as I used to have the Kel Tec P11 which was a good gun with a crappy trigger and I almost bought another one when I decided to try the cpx-2 instead. I have many other carry guns so it's likely this may never get in the rotation.

Talked with Jason in customer support this morning and he is sending a new recoil spring and 2 new mags at no charge...
He does not think the recoil spring is weak but rather the magazines feed lips maybe a little tight or close together especially near the front which makes it harder for the bullet to climb the feed ramp before it is completely free from the magazine.
I will post feedback after the new parts are delivered and tested.

Haven't been on here for long, but read a lot of previous posts. Appears the magazine feed issue has existed for at least five years. Just wondering when SCCY will get around to thinking about fixing it? Seems like they have sent out a lot of free magazines. Going to call them today. Maybe that is my feed issue, maybe not. Compared them to my Taurus mags, which are very similar. Indeed the the top feed area is a considerable amount less restricted. Will keep you posted.

rjr573 glad you got some parts , is`nt their customer service great ? keltec use to be like that . sccy makes their own magazines in house ,which is unusual (probably to keep costs down ) . even most of the big manufacturers like colt , s &w , kimber,
walther , canik -tristar ,etc. have MEC-GAR in italy make mags for them . which means it is hard to make excellent ones .

Received two new magazines and just by looking at them you can tell that the feed lips are spread farther apart on the end towards the barrel.... My old mags were the same distance apart at the rear as the front....
Tried the new mags and the problem is gone...
Even when working the slide slow by hand you can see how the bullet climbs the feed ramp much easier because of wider feed lips.... With the old mags the bullet was getting stuck about halfway up the feed ramp as it was trying to tilt because the front of the feed lips would not allow the bullet to tilt like it needed
