Florida-based SCCY Firearms this week showed off their new CPX-4 handgun platform, a .380 hammer-fired, polymer-framed pistol with a manual safety.
The double-action-only (DAO) CPX-4 builds on the company’s legacy CPX-3 handgun, which has the same general specifications and features, by adding an ambidextrous frame-mounted manual thumb safety, an important feature for some users. Both the CPX-3 and 4 models have a 2.96-inch barrel length for an overall length of 5.7-inches and an all-up weight of 15-ounces.
The Zytel polymer grip frame houses a 7075-T6 aluminum receiver while the slide is stainless steel available in either a natural or black nitride finish. Other standard features include a three-dot sight system and a slide/lock release. The CPX-4 is expected to ship this Fall and include three double-stack, 10 round capacity magazines–one with a finger extension base installed and two with flat bases.
MSRP is set at $305, which will likely be a good bit less in actuality.
Founded in 2003 by Joe Roebuck, American-owned SCCY has spent the past two decades carving away market share in the consumer handgun market with CPX series guns in 9mm and .380. According to ATF statistics for the most current year available, SCCY produced 150,647 pistols in 2017, making the company one of the top six domestic makers of handguns in the country by volume– not counting firearms that were imported from overseas. This is compared to Smith & Wesson (1,032,450), Ruger (774,211), Sig Sauer (536,636), Kimber (183,858) and Glock (175,696).
