One of the best part about inexpensive pistols is their inexpensive price. For years, that’s been the selling point of the SCCY 9mms. Ask anyone who owns one, and I bet the first thing that attracted him to the brand was the cost of a gun. But that’s hardly all there is to SCCY.
What’s new? They’re building out the line with a new caliber. The CPX 3 will be a .380. And don’t let the humble looks confuse you—this isn’t just a downsized 9mm. The CPX 3 has the new Roebuck Quad-Lock system.
Quad-Lock. It isn’t really bad leg cramp. And it isn’t something you might find in a dominatrix’s dungeon (at least not that I know of). Instead it is a functional way to center the barrel in the slide, in the same exact position, every-time.
We got a chance to talk to Joe Roebuck, the owner of SCCY, and he shared his philosophy with us. In its most simplistic form, it goes like this: when you aim a pistol, you are really aiming the slide. Revolvers and some fixed barrel autos are obvious exceptions, but most autos work in the same way. The slide is rigid and riding on rails, but the barrel moves around inside of that, and is often looser than it has to be. The forward pressure of the slide itself pushing against the chamber end of the barrel locks things up. Mostly.
What if you could lock down the back end of the barrel and the muzzle end, too? That’s what the Quad-Lock does. So the barrel has positive pressure at the back, and the return-to-battery mates the barrel and the slide in the slide’s self-centering V and that holds the barrel secure in the front. The whole gun then solidifies allowing very reliable repeat accuracy. Suddenly the inexpensive SCCY looks like it might be a game changer. If this simple design revision truly increases repeat accuracy, I’d expect to see it on a lot of other pistols.
The new design will be integrated into future versions of the 9mms, too. Other news from the Floridians? Two big gems. Increased international distribution in 2016, and the potential for a .45 ACP version. That one isn’t slated for production yet, but the company’s listening to demand and that’s the #1 thing SCCY fans keep asking for.
