SCCY 2017
« on: February 15, 2017, 08:20:19 pm »
So honestly - I never thought positively about them - even as an advertiser to MB's shows - I search here and see an old thread from 2009

http://www.downrange.tv/forum/index.php?topic=5749.msg68654#msg68654

And his pistol exhibited the known issue which has since been fixed - beside I would not buy the "1" with a safety but the newer "2" w/o safety 9mm

I've preformed my due diligence by using Googlefoo to search reviews and videos - and I come away thinking I may have a wrongly preconceived notion that they were crap.

I do not intend to every purposely carry one as a primary self defense gun, but maybe owning one 'just cuz I can" now has me interested. 
The trigger description sounds a lot like my Kahr's - loooong purposeful double action "revolver esque" with just as looooong reset - but I like that feature of the Kahr's and am already familiar with it...

Anyone have some recent hands on input?

I would like to know as well.  I have been looking at them, thinking I need to try one just to see. 

I know it is not exactly the same, however I have had a Kel-Tec P11 for close to 15 years (or more). Reliable yes. Hard to shoot with that trigger, and recoil is rough. Recoil expected in such a small, light, pistol. I also understand the hard to use trigger.

Having said that, I have heard that the SCCY is much nicer to shoot (recoil) with the grip being larger. What I can't figure out is if the trigger is any better than my Kel-Tec.  Heavy ok, just something smoother, I hope.

I read and see (video reviews) that they really do like to be broken in 200+ more and some report they are sensitive to Armscore as they have hard primers, and also function/cycle "better" with hot loads.
