|Been carrying a Kel-Tec PF9 for years, but wanted another 9mm for the car or bed rail, and decided on the SCCY CPX2 vs the Kel-Tec P11 and am glad I did. The CPX's trigger is better, the fit and finish is better, it comes with a second mag at no additional charge, and is priced cheaper to begin with.
The mechanical design of the CPX is good; very similar to the P11. SCCY warrants it for life. They have a very supportive user forum, and incredibly responsive customer service. Felt recoil is much less in the CPX than in my PF9. I don't know if it's the "recoil reducing backstrap" advertised as a feature of the CPX or just that it is a couple ounces heavier than the thinner, single stack PF9, and the two more rounds of ammo, so that there is more mass to absorb the recoil?
The one recurring issue that they have had with this model is the recoil rod and spring assembly. It's plastic and often begins to scar up and eventually bend after 200-300 rounds. One e-mail to SCCY Customer Service and they mailed me a new, upgraded rod and spring assembly for free (not one cent). You can tell if it is the new assembly if there is a little brass washer at the front of the assembly rod. If not, call or e-mail SCCY for a new one.|
