    I have seen many ads for this gun line but very few reviews. Looks like a slick carry pistol but wondering if it's worth my time to do more research and possibly buy. Thoughts?

    I have one and I love it. Carry every day and it is great at the range. Can't speak to reliability over time because I've only had it a few months but so far, so good. Fits my hand great and is a real easy take down. Well put together - seems to be very well made.

    Looked on gun torture tests on youtube, gun works great. Great price too, lifetime warranty. I carry Glocks but am very open minded and like the fact it's American made.

    All I can say is the gun is a piece of crap. It's a knock-off of a kel-tec. And kel-tec's version is a knock-off of the ruger LC9. Honesty the LC9 is a damn fine gun with good reviews. You decide...

    My position on newly offered handguns is that if it still is being produced 3 years after introduction, then I would consider buying it.

    I am curious, would you mind going past opinion and share with us what is so bad about the gun? When you went to shoot with one, what went wrong? What kind of problems did you have? That kind of information would be helpful. I have looked into getting one and want to learn a little more before buying.

    A gun that looks like another gun that looks like yet another gun is something that doesn't bother me.

    I purchased one in 2005 soon after they first came out (serial# 700+) under the brand name SKYY. I've shot about 2,000 rounds through mine over the years and haven't had any problems. It seems most malfunctions/problems that do happen occur during the first 200 rounds or less - usually with older CPX-1's - and after that, they work fine. SCCY had a few growing pains the first few years but since the updated CPX-1 was released 4 or 5 years ago and with the release of the new CPX-2 a couple of years later most people who own one seem happy. While I never had a reason to use it, from what I hear customer service is outstanding.

    FYI it is no target pistol. I also wouldn't put it in the same class as my Colt's, Rugers, S&W's or SIGS and I wouldn't want to shoot more than 50 rounds at a time because it becomes uncomfortable. However, it cost a LOT less than any of those guns and mine will place three shots in a 2" circle at 50 feet. I paid $210 NIB for my gun in '05 and in my opinion, it's a bargain for a close range self-defense handgun. Would I buy another? Probably not since the one I have still works just fine. However, I did give one to my son as a birthday gift a few years ago if that says anything.

    Yes, the CPX-1 is probably a Kel-Tec P-11 clone if anything and has been around since 2005. FYI, the P-11 began production in 1995 and the LC9 didn't come out until 2011. If anything, the Ruger is a knock off of the SCCY and Kel-Tec! OTOH, I would consider the Ruger to be a superior gun to either of the other two. As to one gun being a copy of another, I don't hear many complaints that a Kimber, Deltonics or SIG version of the Colt 1911 is a "copy" or an AR built by S&W, Bushmaster or Stag is a knockoff of the original Armalite designed by Stoner.

    I purchased a cpx-1 3 years ago and it is still my primary gun. I have ran around a 1000 rounds through it so far. Only problem I had was the guide rod would occasionally get stuck in reassembly, but I contacted sccy and received an improved one in less than a week. From what I've seen they have made many improvements over the original design and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a cheap but reliable carry gun.

    I just got mine from Cheaper Than Dirt for $259 shipped. I got it for Summer carry. I am satisfied with the quality.

    It comes with a lifetime warranty.

    Guntorturetests put over 6000 rounds before a replaceable part broke.

    Dude, kel tec has been around longer than sccy. Thanks for your useless rant without any backing to why the gun is crap. You have accomplished nothing except showing your ignorance to this forum. You decide....

    I have been eyeing one myself. The cpx2 as I have no need for an manual safety. They have been made for almost 10 years now and that alone almost speaks for itself. I really want to get one in my hands and get a feel. If its anything like the KelTec ill save my money. Personally the only real thing I don't like it the little plastic doohickey on the slide lock. It looks like its just waiting for an opportunity to work its way loose and disappear.
