SCCY – A Lot of Gun for Not Much Money

During my gun store days the 9mm SCCYs were great sellers because of their size, price and capacity. It’s concealable size gun that carries 11 rounds of 9mm for around $250. Their 9mm is available in two models, one with an external safety and one without. This is the CPX-1 and the CPX-2. This past year they released the CPX-3 and CPX-4 versions, which are .380 caliber, one with external safety and one without. One cool thing about them is colors. They come in all sorts of colors. Here are pictures of my CPX-1, that’s the one with external safety, and CPX-2, the one without.


Right before Christmas I was sent a new SCCY for review, this one with a Crimson Trace Red Dot sight installed. The Crimson Trace is now available on all four SCCY Models. And guess what. Toward the end of 1st quarter 2020 SCCY will be releasing a new version of their gun that is striker-fired with a 5.5 lb. trigger pull. All the ones so far have been double-action only with a 9 lb. trigger pull.

So we have two trends I’m following in the gun industry. One is affordable guns that are high quality. You can own a good defensive handgun for under $300. Or you can spend several thousand dollars for one. Your choice.

The other trend is that .22s are coming back in force. If you haven’t shot a .22 in a while, you’d be surprised at how much fun it is. Also inexpensive.
