WHAT HOLSTERS SHOULD I USE FOR MY SCCY?

SCCY does not make holsters nor do we have any relationships with any holster manufacturers. Many of our customers, however, are interested in holsters that fit our guns. We recommend that any holster inquiries be directed to the manufacturers who advertise SCCY compatible products, some of which are listed below:

   

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CPX-1 AND CPX-2?

The CPX-1 has an external ambidextrous safety and the CPX-2 does not.

       

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE GEN. 1 AND GEN. 2?

On a Gen 1, the grip panels are covered by rows of parallel grooves. On a Gen 2, the grip panels have a stippled, textured pattern and the back strap includes a series of slots that are part of the recoil system.

FIREARM SAFETY
  • Always install the child resistant lock on the firearm when not in use.
  • Never store your firearm in the loaded condition.
  • Always store ammunition in a separate place from where the firearm is being stored.
  • Always store the firearm and key(s) out of reach from children.
  • Always keep your finger(s) out of the trigger area until you are ready to shoot.
  • Never point the firearm at anything you do not intend to shoot.
  • Always be familiar with the target you are aiming at shooting and what is behind it. A bullet can travel several miles before stopping.
  • Remember, firearm safety is the responsibility of the person handling the firearm.

ISSUE: Round noses into feed ramp when loading or firing

Possible causes and remedies:

  • Magazine spring may be fatigued
    • Replace magazine
      • Send out a new magazine
    • Replace magazine spring (compare current spring with another magazine spring.)
      • Send out new magazine
  • Magazine feed lips are bent
    • Replace magazine
      • Send out new magazine
  • Current ammunition will not feed
    • Try an alternative ammunition
      • (bullet profile: hollow point, round nose, polymer tipped)
ISSUE: Slide locks open while firing

Possible causes and remedies:

  • Strong hand thumb riding under slide-lock lever. The gun moves substantially in recoil and it could be bumped up buy the shooters hand (Primarily right-handed shooters)
    • Try firing the gun one handed, ensuring the thumb is not interfering with the slide lock lever.
      • This can be done with the opposite hand to ensure the grip has changed
  • Broken or weak slide lock lever spring
    • Remove the slide and manipulate the slide lock lever to check for spring tension. The lever should be pulled down after it’s manipulated up. It should not stick or “fall” back into place.
      • Send gun in for armorer service if broken or weak
ISSUE: Slide fails to lock open after last round fired

Possible causes and remedies:

  • Magazine tube (body) may be dirty causing the follower to become stuck
    • Disassemble magazine. Brush and clean the magazine tube. Wipe away carbon from the follower and wipe the spring with an oily rag. DO NOT USE EXCESS OIL INSIDE THE MAGAZINE TUBE, OR ONFOLLOWER OR SPRING
  • Strong hand thumb is resting on and interfering with slide lock lever operation (Right-Handed Shooters)
    Note: This a common problem with a right-handed shooter with a “high, thumbs-forward grip.”

    • Modify the grip so the strong hand thumb is away from both the frame and the slide when firing.
      • Load ONE ROUND and fire the gun one handed being sure to not interfere with the slide lock lever.
  • Support hand is pressed against the slide lock lever (This would be the right-handed shooters LEFT hand)
    Note: This can happen when a shooter hands are large or thick. Modify the grip so as to lower the support hand (left) to be away from the slide lock lever.

    • Modify the grip so the support hand is away from the slide lock lever when firing.
      • Load ONE ROUND into a magazine and fire with the modified grip
  • Magazine spring is fatigued and weak
    Note: This can happen over time from loading and unloading

    • Insert an unloaded/empty magazine and attempt to lock the slide open without influencing the slide lock lever
Trigger doesn’t work the hammer fully (CPX line pistols)

Possible causes and remedies:

  • Caused by excessive wear between trigger cam and the trigger
    • Return to SCCY Industries for trigger replacement service
Take down pin cannot be removed with ordinary effort

Possible cause and remedies:

  • Be sure slide is locked fully to the rear and attempt again
    • Return to SCCY Industries for service
Takedown pin is bent or deformed (do not use excessive force)

Return your pistol to SCCY Industries for service

Unable to fully load the magazine to 10 round capacity

Possible cause and remedies:

  • Rounds can bind up or not stack properly when filling the magazine.
    • Load several rounds into the magazine (5 or 6).
    • Tap the magazine base vigorously on the palm of your hand to seat the rounds in the magazine.
    • Continue loading rounds and tapping the base after each round added.
  • Weak hand/finger strength can be the cause.
    • Attempt using an aftermarket magazine loading aid.
Chambered round does not fire or light strikes the primer

Possible causes are a broken firing pin or a bad primer has been used in the ammunition

  • Eject the unfired round and attempt to fire the next round in the magazine.
    • If rounds continue to not fire, remove the magazine and clear the chamber so you your firearm is unloaded and try the next step
  • With your firearm unloaded and using an eraser tipped pencil, put the slide forward and tip the muzzle up and let the pencil fall into the barrel, against the breech face with the eraser end down.
    • Press the trigger and see if the pencil flies up out of the barrel. (DVG models must be cocked first)
    • If the pencil comes up and out, your firing pin is good and you should try another ammunition type.
    • If the pencil does not bounce out of the barrel, it’s likely that you have a broken firing pin and the PISTOL SHOULD BE RETURNED TO SCCY Industries FOR SERVICE.
