The CPX-2 from SCCY (pronounced Sky) firearms has gotten a ton of attention over the last year due to its’ size, price, and reported reliability. Here’s what I found since I’ve owned the gun:
Reliability is the number one factor for me when it comes to firearms; if everything else about a gun is great but it’s not reliable then it’s not a gun I want to own. The CPX-2 has 100% reliable with everything from cheap steel cased Russian ammo to quality defensive ammunition to include Hornady Critical Duty (135gr standard pressure), Federal HSTs, and Speer Gold Dots.
While the gun is relatively compact and light (weighs under 16oz unloaded) it does use a double stack, 10 round magazine so it feels better in the hand than most of the new single stack guns that have been so popular in the past couple years. It comes with 2 magazines, 1 with an extended finger rest base pad and one with a flat base pad. The width of the grip does help alleviate some of the recoil impulse generated from such a light gun by spreading the force across a larger area but the simple fact is the gun is still what some would call “snappy.”
