[SHOT Show 2020] SCCY pistols now have a choice of a red dot that is fired by strikers
Eve Flanigan 1/28/20
SCCY, manufacturer of carrying size pistols in .380 ACP and 9mm Luger, had BIG news at SHOT Show 2020. The company is now offering red dot slides and a brand new, striker-fired version of its popular small car.
CPX-1 with CT 1500 visor
The company’s classic CPX models 1 and 4 (in 9 mm or 0.380 mm with manual security) as well as the corresponding CPXs without manual security (models 2 and 3) are still available in different colors, but now for consumers you can opt for them decide that the pistol be crowned with a motion-activated Crimson Trace CT 1500 red dot sight. The visor has a 3.5 MOA point, adapts automatically to the ambient light conditions and is covered by a three-year Crimson Trace guarantee. Thanks to the notched blade built into the base, users retain the ability to witness the iron eyesight. The market price for the CPX with the CT 1500 is 290 US dollars. Both chambers are offered with the red dot option. They are called CPX-1RD and CPX-2RD for 0.380 and 9 mm, respectively.
A visor is built into the red dot of the CT 1500.
In even bigger news, SCCY recently published the DVG-1. The name is an abbreviation for “David and Goliath”. The fire control is activated by a striker, but apart from the front panel it has the same appearance as the popular CPX. A SCCY representative said the public had been asking about a gun fired by a striker for some time and this is the answer.
A new DVG-1
The DVG-1 is chambered in 9 mm and contains a 10-round magazine. There is no manual security. It is available as DVG-1 or DVG-1RD, the latter with the red dot CT 1500. The three-point iron sights are evidence of the red dot, and the sight is interchangeable with certain aftermarket sights.
This new weapon is currently only available in a black nitride version. A SCCY representative says the lower receiver / handle colors the company is known for should start appearing in Q3 2020. Expect real-world prices between $ 289 and $ 389 with and without the Crimson Trace visor.
SCCY pistols are sold through a network of 13 major dealers.
