Sccy CPX-2 Review

The Sccy CPX-2 9mm Pistol came boxed as shown below.

The end of the box had a sticker with the critical information such as:

When you remove the top of the box, you see that the box is packed full with the items shown below.

Taking a closer look, you see the pistol is efficiently packed inside sculpted foam with the trigger lock installed.

The items inside the box are as follows:

  • CPX-2 Pistol
  • Two 10 round magazines
  • Two flat magazine bases
  • Trigger guard lock with two keys
  • Fired case
  • Instruction Manual
  • Warranty Card
  • MFR7 Card and a sample of the MFR7 gun lubricant

A nice feature of the Sccy products is that it covers a "limited lifetime warranty that stays with the firearm."  The Instruction Manual states, "The model CPX firearm is warranted to be free from defect(s) in material and workmanship for a lifetime from the date of purchase."  When considering a value oriented firearm, extended warranty periods are one way to ensure that you have time to discover a defect.  Sccy offering this "lifetime with the firearm" warranty is an indication that they think they have a solid product.

Since this pistol was tested on 1/18/13, this pistol should be a good example of what is currently being produced by Sccy.

This next set of photos documents the "as received" condition of the Sccy CPX-2 Pistol.  I was pleased with the condition of this new pistol and didn't see any issues with the fit and finish of the pistol.  There were a couple of sharp edges on the polymer portion of the magazine bases, but those would clean up quickly with a small file.

First Impressions

I was impressed with the look and feel of the CPX-2 Pistol.  Surprisingly, for a compact pistol, the grip had more of a full size feel which is probably due to the double stack magazines.  A quick measurement of the girth of the CPX-2 compared to that of my Ruger SR9 revealed that the grip size of the CPX-2 was actually larger than the SR9.
