SCCY Firearms Releases Striker-fired DVG Platform

posted on January 6, 2020
SCCY Firearms recently released its new DVG-1 and DVG-1RD (Red Dot) pistol series to its lineup for 2020. The DVG series of pistols are striker-fired, use SCCY's proprietary Quadlock Barrel System and are chambered in 9 mm. This new striker-fired series joins the hammer-fired CPX-3 in .380 ACP (reviewed here) and the CPX-2 in 9 mm (reviewed here) and continues SCCY's tradition of including red-dot sights as in the recent release of the CPX Red Dot.

The DVG is available with or without a factory installed Crimson Trace CTS-1500 red-dot sight which offers more than 20,000 hours of battery life. A 3.5-MOA dot gives a balance of rapid acquisition and precision and the optic comes with a 3-year warranty. 

Forward slide serrations have been added for ease of manipulation in even the most austere conditions. A flat-face, 5.5-pound trigger with minimal pre/post travel and a new, enhanced grip texture are engineered for everyday carry.

The DVG Series will be competitively priced with a MSRP of $289 (DVG-1) and $389 (DVG-1RD). Both DVG pistols are expected to begin shipping to distributors in the first quarter of 2020.

Skills Check: Present Arms

We refer to the draw stroke as the presentation at Gunsite. It’s a better explanation than simply “drawing” the pistol, because it describes the act of presenting the pistol from the holster to the target or threat. In our “basic,” five-day pistol class we expect students to present the pistol and make hits on targets from 3 to 7 yards away in 1.5 seconds. Most students can do this in two or three days of training.
