SCCY’s Optic-Equipped DVG-1RD Stiker Pistol is Under $400 – SHOT Show 2020

SCCY, the Florida-based firearms manufacturer, is well-known for its affordably priced hammer-fired handguns.

At SHOT Show 2020, they launched a new striker-fired model, the DVG-1, and it’s available with optics right from the factory for a low, low price.

David vs. Goliath

The DVG-1 is meant to take on guns by manufacturers with much bigger names than SCCY. It’s got a 3.1″ barrel and comes with black or silver stainless steel slides and a black polymer frame. SCCY (pronounced “sky” for the founder’s love of flying) is also known for its colorful array of frames, but this one is currently only offered in black (colors coming later in 2020).

3.1″ barrel and a slim 1″ thick. You can choose a slim slide release or this standard thicker one.

Compared to previous models, the DVG-1 has a slimmer grip with enhanced texturing, and front and rear slide serrations. It’s right at 1″ thick.

Ships with two mags with pinky extensions.

Interestingly, you can get it with either a standard slide lock or a slim slide lock. It’s got G43 compatible sights and it ships with 2 mags with pinky extensions.

The sights are G43 compatible for customization with aftermarket sighting options.

The trigger has a flat blade and weighs in at just 5.5lbs with a 1/4″ pull. The trigger guard is slightly undercut for a higher grip. This gun has a drop-safety-firing-pin block but lacks any other active safety so it’s ready to fire when needed.

A new straight trigger makes the 5.5 pull feel even lighter.


A trend we’re seeing is that many companies are offering pistols with red dots mounted right from the factory, and SCCY is keeping pace. The DVG-1RD ships with a Crimson Trace CTS 1500. It’s got a 3.5 MOA dot, a 20,000-hour battery life, and a 3-year warranty.

DVG-1RD ships with a CTS 1500 red dot installed.

SCCY guns are 100% machined in the USA with USA components. MSRP for the DVG-1 is just $289, or get the DVG-1RD for only $389 with an optic installed.

DVG-1 is SCCY’s first striker-fired pistol.
It’s got front and rear slide serrations.

    Bought one . Not a bad back up . Similar to my P365 . But when you fire it you see/ feel the $300 difference. Worst website , 0
    Accessories or info.
    I think mine has a rail on top.???? Covered by a plate. It’s a DVG-1 but no others I’ve it seen have this plate with 2 hex screws just in front of the rear sight. I assume, and this was somehow confirmed at the sig sauer experience store in NH. When I was checking out the romeo red dot that it is a weaver rail. I did get the SS slide so maybe that’s why ?
    But try to find a threaded barrel or extended mag. Anywhere . Impossible. No help from support.

    ” 1st quarter 2020″ came and went. These guns are simply but coming to market. What a colossal waste!
