NRA Gun of the Week: SCCY Industries CPX-2 Pistol

posted on February 27, 2016

SCCY Industries recognized a need for a simpler version its CPX-1 design. That seed germinated into our latest NRA Gun of the Week, the CPX-2, a configuration that dispenses with the manual safety while maintaining all other characteristics of its predecessor. Chambered for 9 mm Luger, the double-action-only, hammer-fired pistol comprises a stainless-steel slide, aircraft-grade aluminum receiver and a Zytel (impact-resistant nylon) grip frame. A set of nice sights round out the pistol’s features. For more, watch the video above hosted by American Rifleman's Joseph Kurtenbach.
