There's enough I like about the Sccy that I've decided to test the warranty. Yesterday I put 100 rounds through it with 4 fail to eject. 1 locked it up tight but I'm experienced with that fix. The extractor is chipped and rounds fit pretty loose in the barrel compared to other guns. There are guys here who like their Sccys and I value their opinions. The ejecting shells directly at my head feature also needs to be resolved. I understand that all guns can't be as reliable as a Hi Point, but it needs to be better than it is.

Which model do you have, the 1 or the 2? I've got close to 2k through my 2 with zero problems. Mine ejects at about 4 o'clock position. Not in a neat pile but most small 9mm's fling the case widely.

It's a CPX2. I'm guessing that the poorly ejecting shells are running into the loading round, altering their intended path. The ones that don't jam get to test my OSHA approved shatter resistant lenses. Its a cool looking, comfortable handling firearm. I rip on it alot, but the missing portion of the extractor tooth is likely my fault. I put a couple hundred rounds of steel case ammo through it before I read "no steel cased ammo". I bought it before all the colors, so it's black. Call me crazy but I kinda like the Coast Guard orange. I mean, who in their right mind would carry an orange handgun. I hope they offer the CPX3 in orange.

So, you don't like hot brass hitting you in the face? I've called them and had a great experience, I'm sure they'll take care of you.

I ran 100 rounds of Tulammo through mine early on just to see if it would eat it. Did fine, but after my initial testing of various manufacturer's ammo, all it's had to eat are my reloads. It does equally well with both the 115gr stuff as well as the 124gr that I moved over to awhile back. It sure does fling them, about three times as far as the P95 does!

I was looking at Bubba's " shooter's wheel". It shows that I'm anticipating the shoot with the Sccy. At least I know to aim a little to the left if someone's returning fire. Come to think of it, not everyone who comes out to shoot wares eye protection. While the Sccy is the only gun I have that shoots back with spent casings, you never know. I noticed the casings that get stuck are blackened on one side. Mo, you don't think it was the steel stuff? I got about 1000 rounds of Wolf Poly. When people come to shoot I break out the cheap stuff. I really haven't noticed the cheap Russian ammo to be dirtier than others. I just finished up some Pakistani NATO manufactured in the 70s. That was some snappy 9mm.

I break out the cheap stuff here too.. my reloads!

Dirty on one side generally indicates that it's a bit underpowered and/or not expanding to seal.

Could it be the fact that it is steel cased for the lack of expansion? I used to shoot a lot of steel case (just not in the SCCY) and it usually had a black side to some extent. It cycled my PHP and Hipoint just fine however. I've never tried steel case in the SCCY since I finished the last of my milsurp ammo a long time ago and started reloading. However, I still buy brass cased stuff if I have some money and find a some on sale at times. Nevertheless, I am still working on the first box of WWB in my SCCY. :oops: I have a few hundred rounds made, another 500 ready to put together, and another 500 or so waiting for cleaning. :dunno: No point in building any if I don't shoot them.

My range is now overgrown since I haven't shot most of the summer. Way too many irons in the fire.

Yep, steel won't expand and seal pretty much any firearm that I've shot it in, so you'll get that "one sided" carbon layer on the cases.

I haven't bought any WWB since my first C9 and getting two near-squibs in one box. A bit unnerving to see a bullet literally drop out the end of the barrel and land on the ground in front of you. Good thing it was a short barrel!

I dropped the Sccy off at my local gun shop so he could send it in. Sending it in myself would be to much trouble since the UPS and FedEx locations are a sizeable distance from me. He said that it would go out on Monday. While I don't expect it back anytime soon, the theme from Jeopardy keeps playing in my head. The wife and I agree that the softening trigger spring helped make it a far better shooter. It's no tack driver, but soup cans at 7 yards all day long is good enough for its size and weight. I can't wait to see what they do to it.

I got the call from my FFL that the Sccy was back! The first observation was new/different magazines. Without stripping the gun I can't tell if it's a new barrel. I had cleaned the gun really well before I sent it in, and there's metallic flecks in the mag well. Clearly they did something to it and I'm going to put it through its paces this weekend. The slide works more smoothly. I'm stoked! It's such a good feeling piece.

That wasn't a long wait at all :great:

That's pretty good turnaround. I hope it shoots as good as mine.

The Sccy no longer jams. I went through a box of WWB without a failure. It did, however, peen me in the forehead twice with spent casings. One was a really good hit. Lol I couldn't stop flinching after the second one. I moved to the little Kel Tec and couldn't hit inside 6 inches. With all the ammo I go through, I should be able to shoot flies on a fence post. Maybe I should stop moving from gun to gun. It seems....I shoot until I get good then I get bored and move to a different pistol and start the process all over again. I'd like to be good with all of them but it doesn't appear to be working. Instead I become mediocre with the entire selection. Anyway...the Sccy is fixed.
