Range report on Sccy cpx 1
 
Broken safety. To miss fires and a Cut thumb....I'm dissatisfied. First 2 mags went great. Reloaded released the slide and on the first shot the safety snaps off. I fire again and nothing happens, so upon laying the gun down it fires into the damn wall! So I drop the mag, reach for the slide to eject the chambered round and the damn thing goes off again! his time hitting the ceiling, and the. slide ripped my thumb open! Oh they are gonna hear it when I get home!

This was exactly the kind of stuff I heard from 3 folks I knew that owned one of these. Proves the adage - you get what you pay for...

Wow. Bad time. Glad no worse damage done.

Thanks for posting this.

I'm sorry to hear about your bad luck. I handled one and the guy at the shop was trying to convince me I needed it but I wasn't impressed with the feel, fit or finish. I have yet to hear something good about them.

I'm just glad I was the only one at the range. I had my Ruger with me so it wasn't a total loss. I ordered a new safety today at no charge to me. When that comes in I'm going to fix it test fire it and trade it at the next gun show.

I think what pissed me off the most is the guy thst sold us the gun really hyped it up. (i say us because it was a gift from my girlfriend) She is super upset that she got ripped off and is now turned off from guns and dealers. Sucks that people sell junk like this. I was honestly really happy with it on my first trip to the range...but today I have vowed to stick to brands I know.

Lesson learned. What are you going to do with it now?

What frustrates many of us old experienced farts is we really do try to help folks make good decisions on guns - and many times we're ignored. Hopefully, you can dump this at not to great of a loss...

Personally I would have never purchased the POS. But should I have been taken in by the "mad sales skills" of this asshat, I would take the aforementioned POS back to him and informed him how lucky he is that no one died in your maiden voyage with this death trap, and then shove the POS up his ASS!
