    my father wanted a good pocket pistol so i sent him to the local gun shop for a keltec, since he sold out of keltecs yesterday he sold him one of the keltec clones made by skyy. all that i found in the forums didnt have much good to say about them except the newer ones the problems with failure to feed, and failure to fire, and failure to eject had been rectified, not to mention the safety going safe in the middle of firing. i was hoping someone on here had put one through the ringer to see how they perform. I guess i will be putting his through the ringer this weekend just to make sure that the gun he is going to rely on in the time of need will perform without any of the formentioned flaws

    Saw one at the gun show......

    After seeing their website, I was really looking to buy one of the CPX-1 pistols in 9mm. I researched the pistol online, and that is when I started to get worried. Finally, I got to actually hold one at a gun show, and the way it felt could be summed up in one word: Cheap.

    I also notice that the new MPX line is still not released. They announced a release date of winter of 2004. It is now more than four years later. Who do they think they are, Ruger?

    All in all, not a very positive endorsement in my opinion.

    all that i have found on their website has been mostly negative. the keltecs are cheap also but everyone i know that has one loves them and swears by their reliability. hopefully my dads will work flawlessly, i will keep my fingers crossed.

  7. Stick with the Kel Tecs... They are awesome. I just wish Kel Tec would make a .40 and a .45. I know they made the .40 before and it didnt work out for them I guess. I dont mind if they have to be made a bit bigger than my P11.

    Oh well. Im gonna grab another P11 soon enough cause they are awesome.

    Check around and you may run across a P40. If not look for the p40 conversion. I have a P11, P40 and a P357 sig barrel and slide conversion from Kel-Tec on a p11 frame.

    Thumbs down SKYY firearms

    IIRC, SKYY was founded by a group of former KT employees who just make a copy of the P3AT. I'm not giving them a nickle if that's true. Bad ethics.

  10. I also did some reading on the SKYY/CPX/MPX pistols when I saw them in my new 2009 Gun Catalog. Like another poster here, just about everything I read was negative. Very unreliable. I own a Keltec P32. It is a superb gun. Some 800 rounds thru it, only just cleaned it for the first time a few weeks ago (I know, bad idea) yet in all those rounds, using maybe 12 different types of ammo, I had only ONE failure: a stovepipe using Corbon JHP (which my gun never liked).

    Reliability is the #1 factor in carrying/using a firearm and this Keltec gets the highest marks IMHO. Oh, it's also very pleasant to shoot and pretty accurate. I feel very safe carrying it.

    If anyone does a search for them, please note: They changed the name due to tradekmark issues with a vodka company. The new company is Sccy Industries.
