    Range report. Still no problems. Round count is now ~600 ROUNDS FIRED... I went to the range this weekend and shot off a box of Hornady critical defense bullets, which were amazing in this gun. I have shot around 25 (1/2 box) rounds of +p ammo as well with no issues.

    To respond to K75RT's post of the slide cracking...I believe the metallurgy has improved since this accident happened. I have had no issues with the metal on my gun whatsoever. My sn is 25xxx model SCCY.

    Just a note I have a SIG with fewer rounds that my SCCY that with a bad cracked slide (on both sides)so please feel free to visit the SIG thread and bash them. Thanks!

    I have never owned one so I have no experience other than what I read. From what I read including your first post, I would not own one. I have a quantity of guns and I have never had a guide rod break nor frame gashed or any other problem that I can remember. I trust with my life with what I carry and I am glad that you can too. . If you are happy with your SCCY, then its all good. As for the Sig slide failure, maybe its like ..Sig sometimes makes a bad one and sometimes SCCY makes a good one. Not bashing, just saying.

    I must be one of the late bloomers. I purchased mine back in May of 2010 and have only been able to shoot it twice and both tims it broke. The first time the axis pin broke along with it jamming up, I called SCCY and sent it back and they fixed it. The second time the safety snapped off so I called them back and they want to fix it again instead replacing or refunding the pistol. Just wondering what everyones thoughts are!!

    Will they pay for the shipping to fix it? I doubt it; Mine has been good and no parts have broken lately, can't sell it no one will buy it. Good Luck with your CPX-1

    You have to pay shipping there. But unless its a mojor issue they ususaly will just send you the parts that you need.

    i have the cpx-1 i have shot it a few times no safety issues but sometimes the slide doesnt full close and i have to push it with my palm and it closes all the way and also once in a while it will fail to eject the previous round and feed the next while the other case is still in the chamber. and i cant fit 10 rounds in either of my mags when i put the 10 rounds in the mag falls out real easy can someone help me out. i bought it 2 months before the 2nd gens come out. i was pissed at the dealer i could have bought the 2nd gen or a s&w for the same price. but i do like this gun and when i figure out whats going on with it i will i mean i do trust my life and my families life with it. thanks

    The pistol has seen much improvements. The Generation TWO gun has been good with a few issues like any gun manufactured. I bought 2. Gave one to my son. I have had no issues. It goes bang everytime I pull the trigger. SCCY takes care of problems quickly and is ever improving. A good gun and company. Go brouse the SCCY Forum.
