In the past I had a pf-9 and a p-11. The p-11 went to one of son-inlaws. A daughter claimed my pf-9. I had read that the cpx-2 is still very much like the p-11 with just as bad a trigger but different. I have another son-in-law thats looking to get his CCL and I am just reading up to help him. Was looking at another pf-9 for him as he wants lite weight 9mm. I moved on to kahrs a few years ago.

I just picked mine up yesterday. That being said, I'd say the trigger pull weight is somewhere around 13 pounds. It's got a longer trigger pull than my Beretta 92FS in double action. Plus, there is a tad bit of take up in my opinion, which isn't worth much.

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.
I ran into this problem myself. I was at the range and tried to chamber a round with my hand and it hung up two different times. When I hit the slide release to chamber a round, no hang ups. I'll have to keep that in mind next time I go shooting. I noticed you said called instead of emailing you back. I wonder if that's something they did to improve customer service. Either way, I'm shocked by it and like the idea.

I have found remingtons to be loaded with a longer oal than most others. I have had a failure to feed first round at the range with hardball, but an upward tap to the mag fixes that. When that has happened i could pull the mag out, so it is an oe and not the guns fault. If anyone knowledgeable has any pointer of different things i can do to fix that (other than of course jamming the mag in harder when changing mags) than i would appreciate it.

Trigger pull on the CPX-2 hast to be at least 9 lbs. Appropriate since it doesn't have a safety. The trigger is plastic and some people may not like that, but I understand there are second market metal triggers for it, but I don't think it is necessary at all. Works just fine as is. I now have it concealed in my living room ready for any emergency. Last time I took it for a spin I did experience something unusual though and only once... the trigger didn't reset. racked the slide to chamber another round and it never happened again. Anyone experienced this?

I have ordered one for my wife. I wanted something intuitive for her and she thinks revolvers are "old fashioned."
I intend to add an armalaser sight and that's about it.
Those armalaser sights don't have switches. confused: Witchcraft!

This is an example of what an American company can do if they are left to their own resources and they have a business plan that isn't too radical. Like FMK, they developed one pistol that does what it's supposed to do and does it well. They kept the price point at a reasonable level, so more people can afford them.

If someone is looking for a budget priced 9mm with great features and a good shooter, you guys are completely correct. This is a good way to go.
SCCY didn't "develop" anything. Their guns are copies of the Keltec P11. They "developed" some finger notches for the grip.

Sorry about being late to the party. Mine did this to me and wound up being a cracked trigger bar. The first time it happened was exactly what you had. Continued to fire it and eventually it would not fire without racking the slide. Sent it back for repair and had it back in less then a week. Also watch the pins. With consistent shooting they will slide out a bit. Just take a punch and knock them back in a little. I have seen reports of cracks forming around the rear pin. I have not had that happen on mine and I have had it about 3 years now with occasional shooting. Any problems just use the warranty that stays with the gun.
