With close to 450 rounds thru my CPX, most of the ammo was Monarch 115 grn followed by Remington 115 grn and Tula Brass 115 grn. I have shot some steel cased ammo and some 124 grn ammo with no problems with the gun. Can't say the same for the shooter!!!!

Ok, so I just found out that SCCY says not to shoot Steel cased ammo or reloads. (I was shooting reloads)

At least you found out now and not 6 months or a year from now when you were depending on the Gun to protect you.

Again,..I was also interested in this Gun but it was very new a few years ago(2 i guess) so I went with what I knew and got the Rugers. That does not mean they aren't a good gun. the Engs. who Developed this Gun and it's preceding model are a group that left Kel-Tec a few years back to start SCCY...

Joe Roebuck never worked for Kel-Tec, but the original Gen 1 SCCY was very close in design to the P11. Not so much today.

My CPX was broken in using reloads. Truncated flat-nose lead. 124 grain

I had a CPX-2 about 2 years ago, ended up selling it strictly because I needed the money, but I loved the gun so much, that when I saw another one at auction, and the price started out cheaper then any LGS around here, I couldn't help but bid on it and actually won the auction. I plan to take it to the range for the first time Saturday. Some people have problems with there's but you'll have that with any product, rather it be cars, guns, electronics, whatever. Some people say they're fragile and what not, but if you look online, many people done torture tests on them trying anything to produce a failure on the guns, and they just can't seem to do so, and even if it does break, which I seem to think is rare from everything I've seen Sccy will repair or replace the gun for free, regardless who owns it no questions asked.

I bought an SCCY 2 for a truck gun, it has never failed to go bang when asked and is stupid accurate for the type of firearm it is. A person could spend a lot more and not get a better product.

Did you clean the factory goop before shooting for first time?

Sounds almost like it could be gun powder mixing with an abundance of lube and gunk in up the extractor/ejection process. Just a thought.

If it's not that they surely will fix I've heard very good things about this gun, would've purchased one myself if there weren't better carry options that I could afford. Still, very, very good bang-4-buck firearm. I'd never look down my nose at one.
