+P ammo.....

For the general discussion of SCCY Industries firearms. Includes the SCCY CPX-1 and CPX-2 compact 9mm handguns.

+P ammo.....

Postby Sccy-Captain » Thu Mar 01, 2012 5:15 pm

We have recently cleared all generation 2 pistols for limited use of +P rated ammunition, this applies to both the CPX-1 and CPX-2. Keep in mind +P ammo drastically accelerates wear. DO NOT USE +P IN GENERATION 1 FIREARMS!!!

Great!.. now how about a Beefier spring to reduce the wear factor?

"beefier" spring won't do anything for the wear, it may reduce it during recoil, but it will increase upon returning to battery. No free lunch. www.gunsprings.com

I am glad that SCCY has cleared the generation 2 pistols to use +P ammunition, the qualifier "limited use" does not give me much encouragement. As a light-weight compact pistol I would think that standard ammunition would be plenty strong for it. Also, recoil will be greater with the more power ful round. What say the SCCY experts?

Regular rounds for practice, +p for carry and a few for practice...

What Sccy-Captain said about +P ammo in the Gen 2's is pretty much the same as Kel-Tec says. Occasional use only, not a steady diet.

I thought the Gen 2's, were basically the same gun as the Gen 1's with a re-designed grip. Other than that, whats the differance between the two? If they are the same, what makes the Gen 2 good for +p and not the Gen1? Does +P ammo have harder primers? Why use +P anyway? Don't we want the bullets to stay in the bad guy, not go through the wall into your neighbor? I'm so confused.............where am I? Cows.....what cows? :?

There is more to the redesign than that.. I know the 2 has a Beefier slide (especially on the left side) the right side plastic above the trigger is thicker, the frame pins are smaller...
