    Decent...

    Lifetime warranty and excellent service...

    Problem is I've had to use it (their service) twice!

    Out of 100 rounds I usually get 4 or 5 light strikes...

    They sent me a new hammer and spring kit in the mail, I just haven't gotten around to putting it on yet.

    Other problem was the connector bar kept wedging in the frame (new part solved this) and the front sight fell off.

    I would recommend as a plinker, but nothing else...

    And you can find better toys in the used counter at your LGS.

    Cheap money, great CS, but too snappy for my taste!

    I have a friend who works for them. I used to work at an indoor range with him, now he works for SCCY. I was able to test a dozen of their new pistols when he brought them in for us to try. I couldn't make them fail even when I tried limp wristing and shooting upside down weak hand only. I started off skeptical but I do think they are currently putting out good quality pistols. The only problem I had was a pinch on my finger from a sharp piece of plastic during a mag change. One mag had a little extra plastic that I removed with a pocket knife. Right now I think the manufacturing quality is equal to the Kel Tec, with the only disadvantage being the SCCY uses a propriatary magazine instead of the ultra common 59-69 series mags the KT uses.

    Guy at work bought one. He hasn't fired it yet. Hopefully it works well for him.

    I had previously mentioned my wife has a Glock 19 when he had talked to me before about getting his CPL and was looking for a 9mm. After telling me today that he had bought the SCCY instead he went on to state that with Glock "you're paying for the name". We'll see...

    Have a SCCY CPX 2. Put 500 rounds through it already - not a single failure to eject or fire. Most comfortable "smaller" pistol I own. I now use it as my carry gun.

    I've owned SCCY's. Never again. Do a search for "SCCY".

    The SCCY is a $250 pistol. What do you expect? It's cheap in more ways than one.

    As soon as I started seeing these pistols advertised in the gun rags I thought, "Ah. A new gun for Taurus buyers."

    Question is have you ever owned one? I have a second gen CPX2 and have over 2000 rds through it without a hitch definetly put it in a class above Kel Tec. I also own a Detonics MC1 Combat Master, a Ruger SR9c and several others. I get tired of Gun Snobs who have no experence with a firearm cutting them down. Oh I also own a Taurus Public Defender Poly.

    I had the gen 1 and didnt care for the trigger or the accuracy. Save your $$$ and get a better gun like the springfield xd or m&p for not much more $$ you get a decent gun with a good trigger
