If you are in the business for a light,
concealable pistol, that carries more than the usual 7 rounds, and in a decent
calibre, look no further than the SCCY CP-2.
The SCCY (pronounced Sky) Pistol manufactured
in Daytona Beach Florida (USA) is a Browning-style tilting barrel subcompact
with a 10 shot magazine (10+1 for those
who feel confident in themselves). The slide is cut from stainless steel bar
stock, with a hard wearing black nitride finish. The frame is polymer, with an
internal removable receiver made from 7075-T6 aluminium similar to the Sig
range of pistols. The barrel is also stainless, machined from billet.
The SCCY strips to clean into 4 major parts with the recoil spring being a captured assembly to prevent loss in the field. The disassembly pin is removed using the back of a 9mm cartridge case, which is a very neat feature. The firing pin is inertial so the pistol is drop-safe. Each pistol comes with two magazines (extended finger-groove base plates and/or flat plate for better concealment) and a child-safe trigger lock. (With two keys)
The Action is DAO (Double Action Only), which is something you want from a defence pistol with no external safety. Trigger pull is long, to let you know you’re getting serious, with a crisp let off at the end. The trigger must be returned all the way forward as you would expect, there is no “sweet spot” as with some striker-fired handguns. The sights are the standard 3-dot, and are low profile for fast target alignment.
The CP-2 is an inexpensive carry pistol, in a real calibre, with enough ammo on board to be useful for a good price, and in a size that means you can just drop it in your pocket and go to the movies. Add to this, a weight of less than half a kilo (15 ounces) and you have a winner that you won’t leave at home because it’s “too bulky”.
