SCCY Industries has made a change to their “no questions asked” warranty thanks to a handful of people taking advantage of the policy. Previously the SCCY warranty covered the guns with one over-the-top customer support service: free replacement for stolen guns.
Authorities reached out to SCCY after a disproportionate number of their pistols turned up at crime scenes. These pistols had a relatively low “time to crime” — the duration between the point of transfer and the evidence locker. This activity raised flags with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the BATFE or just ATF.
SCCY said that this could have been a result of their policy. “Further research indicated that this phenomena may be an unintended consequence of our theft warranty,” said SCCY in the official statement.
Their former warranty was very generous but also flawed; it was too easy for criminals to exploit. Their “no questions asked” policy proves that sometimes, one or two questions might be a good thing.
As a result, SCCY will no longer replace stolen guns.
“We realize that the majority of people who have contacted SCCY in regard to stolen firearms are honest law-abiding firearms owners and this is another instance where a few bad apples have spoiled it for honest citizens,” continues the statement. “However, in the interest of the public’s safety and welfare we have no choice but to abolish this program.”
The company still has a generous lifetime warranty that covers the guns, not just its original owner, for the lifetime of the guns, for any factory defects. They also have a low-cost service program for people who need refurbishment or repairs that are not covered by the warranty.
SCCY is an increasingly-popular manufacturer of low-cost pistols for concealed carry. They make one gun, the CPX, although they offer it in a wide spread of variants. It’s a simple, intuitive double-action-only self-loading pistol with a light build and a polymer frame.
The standard model, the CPX-1, is a thumb safety model where the CPX-2 has no manual safety. They are both chambered for 9mm Luger although SCCY is working on bringing a .380 ACP version to the market. The CPX is offered with nine frame color options and matte black or stainless slides.
The guns are affordable with MSRPs starting at just over $300 and street prices in the $250-to-$300 range. If you’re looking for a wallet-friendly pistol for concealed carry that is still covered by an excellent warranty you might want to check out SCCY Industries.
