Sccy cpx-1

Just wondering how this gun stacked up to other pocket guns?
keltec, diamondback. ruger, ect
I like my LC9. The triger takes some getting use to but a great gun for the money. I hope to get a SR9C. I will get a SR1911. I think that is a must.

Had one. I hardly ever call a gun "junk" but in this case the description fits the gun and company.

I also have Kel Tecs, Diamondback, and Ruger LCP, LC9 and SR9C.

The Kel Tecs are OK.
The Diamondback sucks.
The Rugers are good guns, especially the LC9 and SR9C.

I also have the SR1911. Also a good gun.
I've been asked to bring it back to the local gun shop three days, where I bought, so prospective customers can see it and shoot it. 10 people so far.
Many said they want one.

I have a SCCY. Mine has been fine, but I wouldn't consider carrying it.

I think bac the only (somewhat) positive review I ever read for the gun. Saw someone at the range awhile back trying to get his to run right, with little success. So many other guns out there that seem to have much less poor press. Unless it just makes your nipples tingle, I'd pass.

I don't have many rounds through mine, so mabye problems haven't developed yet.

That said, my local dealer says he sells quite a few and hasn't had to ship any back yet.

The frame started showing unusual wear in the first 30 rounds or so.
Then the gun pretty much self destructed at 180 rounds.

The company quickly got such a bad reputation they changed their name from SKYY to SCCY.

What pissed me off with the company is they would not pay the shipping cost on a few week old badly defective gun.
I went to the manager where I bought the gun and he had to threated them with calling all his distributors before they would pay the shipping.

But the worst thing is SKYY called this dangerous wear "normal" for 180 rounds and sent it back to me. It looked like someone worked the slide rails over with a course file.

At the time there was a SKYY owners web site. Almost EVERYTHING broke on this gun. I can't believe they are still in business.

There are many people who buy guns and never shoot them. They get them for "just in case" and don't want to spend a lot of money. A cheap gun fits the bill, whether it works or not. They'd be better served with one of the Rock Island 38 revolvers that are cloned from the Detective Special. While they aint pretty, they are cheap and they work.

I'm not defending these POS pistols, but the biggest reason for the name change was a lost lawsuit brought by SKYY Vodka for infringing on their trademarked name.

That just shows how much thought goes into what they do. I'm suprised they didn't pick a name like Dunin' Donuts as the replacement name.

Wow, that is bad.

I think I have about 150 rounds through mine. I haven't shot it in quite a while now.

Interesting.

I could have used the Vodka when I was having trouble with that gun.

I sure wouldn't carry one, I've heard nothing but bad things.

I wouldn't touch a Sccy or Diamondback with a 10 foot pole.

My Diamondback .380 was also a piece of crap.

I don't know why I keep on wasting my money being a beta tester for new guns.

Nope, they're junk, the majority of folks I've seen on here who've owned them have had nothing but problems. The ones who haven't had problems yet usually haven't shot them much

I've had less problems with Kel-Tecs but it seems the Florida based companies seem to put out some rather questionable little guns.

My 2nd gen P3AT and PF9 are/were 100% over several hundred rounds.

I didn't believe the gun shop, but they said SCCY owners were former Kel-Tec designers? Something...

They looked like clone Kel-Tec's. I had never heard of them, let alone pronounce them.

I don't mind Kel-Tec's. I've never owned one, but I've gunsit (babysit gun) and shot two friends P11 and P3AT? (the .380 slim one).

I like the look of Diamondback's I've tours with at my LGS, but I've heard mixed reviews. I'm interested in the 9mm version.
