Great looking gun imo and at $275 a great price point. I have shot over 150 flawless rounds thru it. If anyone is looking for an inexpensive not cheap carry weapon this may be perfect for you.
Just got mine a week ago. Also have a Kel-Tec PF9 where the folks at SCCY originated, but had newer ideas. What a difference! I like my PF-9 (after I tamed that bucking bronco) and I don't want to put it down in any way, shape or form, but... I have to say That the feel of the CPX-2 is a lot more comfortable and doesn't want to jump out of you hands. The CPX-2 is at my bedside simply because my wife can handle it also. The PF-9 rides with me as my CCW. For the money, both are excellent choices. One last comment. I had trouble feeding the first round with every magazine. I had to push the slide to force a round in. Doesn't happen with any of my other guns. I did fluff & buffed it before going to the range, so I was puzzled. The round-nosed 115gr Remington FMJ rounds seemed to refuse to slide smoothly up the loading ramp on the barrel. After that, all rounds fired w/o any problem. I e-mailed SCCY's service Dept and within minutes I got a call and they explained that on this gun you use the slide release to chamber the first round. It works every time. No wonder the slide release is as big as it is and very different from the PF-9 which is almost impossible the actuate. Slightly wider than the PF-9 to fit the stacked magazine with 10 rounds. Another plus over the PF-9. I really like this gun. Price was incredible from CTD.
