    Has anyone heard of this before?

    Has anyone here heard of a gun company by the name of SCCY Industries? I was in the local gun shop today when the owner showed me the new toy by SCCY Industries that he got in. Sharp looking pistol and it felt amazing in my hand. But it being by a company that I have never heard of makes me think that it is a no go. Here’s the link to the gun that I was looking at; SCCY Industries

    While I've heard of the company, I've never held one or seen a review. Looks like a domestic company though, always glad to see a newcomer in the business.

    Well, the gun reviews are not good. They are known to be sensitive to ammo and to cleaning. Some users report that the safety re-engages (an immediate disqualifier for defensive guns), and at least 2 repot having been cut by the gun.

    Buy something known, dude. Get a real name brand and you won't be sorry.

    AFAIK They're local to me (Florida). A few folks at the FloridaConcealedCarry boards carry them and have discussed them a few times. The concerns I have is that they do not have a firing pin block/drop safety, etc. The 'safety on the gun is the only safety' - being the manual safety (at least as of the last time I researched them). They also have a dedicated forum: SCCY Forum • Index page

    It is nice seeing something new showing up..... but with it being a ghost out of no where I don't think I feel comfitable using it for a CCW.

    Yeah.... that's the conclusion I came to last night, if I'm going to trust my life to it I want some backing (if that makes sense).

    Thanks for the info! I'll check out the forum and see what I can find out.

    The company has been around for a few years and was originally name SKKY until they got sued by the vodka maker. I own the cpx-1 model which received all of the bad reviews for the manual safety. Although in all other respects its a decent subcompact, the manual safety is a problem. My experiences at the range are that the safety does engage after a few shots just from my hand slipping up on the grip from the recoil.
    They now sell the cpx-2 version without the safety.
    If you are interested in a small, inexpensive, light weight 9mm the cpx-2 might be worth a look.

    If I otherwise favored it, i would either learn to keep my thumb holding the safety down, as we all learn to do with a speed lever on the 1911, or I would use loctite or a set screw to keep the safety disengaged, if it is a DA type trigger? dunno.
