    Just installed my new parts. I ordered the safety removal kit and a recoil spring/guide rod assembly. All works well.

    Just got back from the range. Shot 100 Monarch FMJ Brass Bullets through it. It worked flawlessly! After installing the safety removal kit it shot well. No more safety issues. Shot 7 inch groups at 48 yards. The gun probably would should shoot better but the trigger linkages make it inconsistent. I have noticed some wear along the receiver from the slide rubbing it. My next project will be to polish the slide so it will minimize the wear on the aluminum receiver.

    Over all I am very happy with my SCCY CPX-1. I bought it used with one clip for $200. I Think it was worth the price.

    Edit: For some reason when I am in the process of putting mine back together the barrel doesn't want to push forward. If I'm not careful the barrel will come back and the guide rod will chew up the receiver. So be careful Putting it back together. i find it helpful to push the barrel down while racking the slide then inserting the retention pin. I will upload pictures soon of my work.

    Well, I don't have this gun so my opinion is mostly worthless, but after reading the posts here and the other thread on the gun it seems like the only pluses are something like: 'did not blow up in my face today, yeah!'

    A pistol that you have to worry about like your worst enemy is not worth diddly-squat.
