Well I know this isn't good:

"Sccy CPX-1 has a history of broken guide rods, firing pins, recoil springs, mis sized chambers and cracked slides due to early quality control issues. Even in the latest production models of the CPX-1 the ambidextrous safety will often engage during firing leaving the gun inoperable."
"That rifle on the wall of the labourer's cottage or working class flat is the symbol of democracy. It is our job to see that it stays there."

NO cpx-1. If you need a sccy firearm the cpx-2 has been greatly improved design but you will need to still prove that its reliable. OR buy the kt p-11. ain't as prudy but tend to work well for a 250 dollar pistol. Nickel slide a little more.

I like to wait a couple years after a new firearm is presented.
If it is fades away, then it wasn't that good.
If it stays around, then it can't be that bad.

SCCY is a off shoot of Kel Tech, correct. Bunch of ex employees got together and formed SCCY. Lots of folks like Ket Tech, personally I don't care for them.

I would like to thank you all for the help. I think I will pass on this one. And go back to looking at glock, ruger, Beretta, and Springfield.
