For the 2015 issue of CONCEALED CARRY HANDGUNS, author Stan Trzoniec examined the versatile, 9mm SCCY CPX-2 to see how it handled as a CCW selection for everyday carry. While impressed by the CPX2’s potential on the range, Trzoniec also found the gun an affordable, reliable and durable option for shooters on a budget.

“In overall appearance, the gun has that modern look with rounded corners in
 two distinct models. One is completely shadowy from its polymer frame to its darkened stainless steel, nitride-colored slide. The other model of the CPX-2 has the same dark frame, but with a lighter slide in a more natural stainless shade that is finished by a ceramic abrasion process, resulting in a non-reflective finish. If I were to purchase this gun, this model would be my choice, as even in dim light the sights still seem to pop out for quick acquisition of my target.”

Upon examining the CPX-2’s ability to serve as a concealed carry weapon, Trzoniec found it to be a durable design that could be easily handled by operators of various statures and hand sizes.

“When you consider the purchase of such a concealable weapon, size naturally enters into the equation. The CPX-2 has been designed to fit into the average hand, and I found it very comfortable to hold and shoot. The grip frame has finger grooves molded into the Zytel frame, a material that appeared in the Remington XP-100 back in 1963. Impervious to just about anything Mother Nature could dish out, this space-age plastic seems to go on and on without any bad results of abuse, weather or age.”
