SCCY has officially dropped the hammer! Now wait, that might not mean what you think. Last year at the Athlon Outdoors Rendezvous, we showed plenty dropping of the hammer, running the CPX-4 on the range. But this year, SCCY moves away from its hammer-fired past, releasing its first striker-fired system, the DVG-1.

SCCY DVG-1 Details

“The DVG for SCCY is a little different animal than what we’re accustomed to,” said Scott McGregor, SCCY. “We’ve been making double-action, small carry pistols for years. But this is actually our first foray into the striker pistol.”

The DVG-1 comes in two versions, with or without a Crimson Trace CTS-1500 red dot optic. Each version features a straight trigger design. The pull weighs in at 5.5 pounds overall, a solid concealed carry configuration. A reduced grip circumference, along with front and rear serrations, round out this well-produced package.

“With our DVG, it comes with a 3-inch barrel, it weighs 15 ounces, it has a 10-round magazine, and it comes in 9mm,” McGregor said. “At the moment, it’s kind of like the Model-T, you can have any color you want as long as its black, or black and stainless even.”

While traditional iron sights top the DVG-1, the DVG-1RD comes equipped for carry optics. The Crimson Trace CTS-1500 features a 3.5 MOA aiming dot, providing fast target acquisition.

“This model, with the red dot on it, it’s a Crimson Trace branded red dot with a 20,000-hour battery life,” McGregor said. “The backup sights are molded into the sight.” For more information, visit
