SCCY industries is an up-and-coming player in the firearms industry and a good bang for your buck. I recently learned about this company, and having done A LOT of research, this firearm is quickly becoming my favorite.
It is lightweight at only 15 ounces, and with a 10 +1 capacity, you are never without enough ammunition for any situation. This firearm also comes from SCCY with an extra magazine. It comes supplied with extended magazines, but if you prefer you can switch to the flush mount plates for a fully customized experience. And finally, it includes a trigger lock with two keys for storing this firearm safely.
There are only four varieties available in design, which helps keep the cost down.
Option 1 is the model. There is the CPX-1 and CPX-2.
The CPX-1 comes with an external thumb safety which is ambidextrous and easy-to-operate in the shooting position without being in the way. It also has an inertial firing pin with a 9-pound trigger pull.
The CPX-2 is identical to the CPX-1 minus the external safety.
Both versions come in two-tone and in all black.
The receivers are made of aircraft-grade heat-treated aluminum, and the frame is made of Zytel polymer. They have a recoil-absorbing backstrap integrated into the frame giving this gun a comfortable grip.
This compact pistol has an overall size of 5.7″ x 4″ x 1″ and fits easily into most pant pockets or very concealed under even lightweight clothing. They are double-action, only with an internal hammer, so there is nothing to snag while drawing this weapon.
These weapons come with a lifetime no-questions-asked warranty, which is very rare in this industry. Not to mention, these are 100% American made in the Nascar capital of Daytona Beach, Florida.
For a price of between $300 – $350 (depending on where you live), it’s a good deal for a great feeling of safety.
According to their website, in 1998, Joe Roebuck recognized the increasing demand for a safe, simple to use, and affordable firearm as a growing number of states enacted legislation to allow concealed-carry permits. With more than three decades of experience in the manufacturing industry, Roebuck set out to apply his skills as a Tool & Die Maker and Mechanical Design Engineer to design the CPX series of 9mm firearms, and in this writer’s opinion, he has accomplished what he set out to do.
The “SCCY” (pronounced ‘sky’) is the limit for this up and coming company.
