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?
