New for 2019 is the SCCY CPX-4, a .380 ACP semi-automatic pistol that extends beyond the existing SCCY CPX-3 line of pistols. The CPX-4 is similar to the popular CPX-3, reviewed here at Shooting Illustrated, but also adds an ambidextrous thumb safety into the platform for those who prefer to carry with a manual safety-equipped handgun.

The CPX-4 also includes the features of the existing CPX-3 such as the Roebuck QuadLock barrel, which is designed to provide more repeatable accuracy, as well as 10+1 capacity, and fixed 3-dot sights. The slide of the CPX-4 is designed to be easy to manipulate, making it ideal for consumers who have difficulty operating traditional pistols.

SCCY CPX-4 Features

  • Magazine: Includes (3) double stack, 10-round capacity magazines. 1 with finger extension base installed and 2 with flat bases.
  • Barrel: Machined from bar stock with 7 lands and grooves having a 1:16-inch right-hand twist.
  • Receiver: 7075‐T6 heat-treated aluminum alloy, machined from bar stock.
  • Slide: Quality Stainless Steel available with Natural Stainless or Black Nitride finish.
  • Grip/Frame: Made from Zytel polymer, with ergonomic finger grooves.
  • Recoil Spring System: All steel, fully encapsulated for ease of disassembly and reassembly.
  • Slide Lock/Release: Steel with a Zytel overmolded polymer extension for ease of operation.
  • 3 Dot Sight System: Steel rear sight, adjustable for windage only with locking screw.
  • Hammer Firing System: Double-action only, internal hammer with inertial firing pin to prevent accidental discharge if dropped.
  • Safety: Ambidextrous manual safety.
  • Double-action trigger: Specifically designed for shooter comfort and accuracy by designing the system to have a smooth effortless, consistent 9-pound trigger pull.

MSRP on the SCCY CPX-4 is $305.00, and more information is available at sccy.com.

Such new people included the late Chuck Karwan, my fellow Vietnam vet and as good a friend as I could possibly want.
