2003 to Date
The SCCY CPX2 began life as the SKKY CPX1 in 2003. Shortly thereafter the company was
contacted by SKKY Vodka and the Corporate name became SCCY. The CPX1 is identical to
the CPX2 with addition of a manual thumb safety. The SCCY's are double action only,
hammer fired handguns with second strike capability. The sights are dual white dots at
the rear and a single white dot on the front and present a very fast picture. Accuracy is on
par with other pistols of this size. ( Test target below) The double action trigger has a long
9 pound trigger pull similar to a revolver, but is very smooth and consistent. There are no
safeties except for that long pull, again like a revolver. You can not cock the hammer manually.
There are custom triggers available for it, but I can't attest to their usability. I've fit fiber-optic
sights to my personal CPX2 available at Twisted Industries, but that's just my preference.
They glow like Christmas lights outside, can't miss them.
Early CPX2 pistols appeared to have some
I did extensive testing with mine (SN 054178) back in February of 2012 and
had 4 failures to extract out of 88 rounds mixed ammo. If you've ever experience that
malfunction it's a show stopper. There's nothing you can do until you get that fired case out.
After contacting SCCY I returned it under
warranty in August of 2012 and within a week I had
it back with a new slide assembly. I began testing again and encountered 20 failures to extract
out of 813 rounds fired. A 3% failure rate. I returned it to SCCY again in late August of 2012.
Within a week I had a brand new pistol. It appears they made some modifications to the
shroud and changed the recoil spring assembly. In my testing I stopped counting rounds at 460
with 0 failures. I probably have close to 1000 rounds through my CPX2 (it's now 2020)
and it's my everyday carry piece. Keep some oil on it and it just runs and runs.
