In this video Youtuber Eric of VeteranIraq8888 does a rather informal torture test on the Sccy Cpx-2 pistol.
For those not familiar with the CPX-2 pistol is a double-action with 9-pound trigger pull. The grip and frame is made from Zytel polymer with ergonomic finger grooves and an integral “Re-Coil Cushion” on the back-strap.
I think one thing it certainly teaches us is that many guns are overbuilt with a high degree of safety and human error factored in.
This is a locked breech gun and I am honestly surprised it kept going despite everything we did to it.

  • First test was a drop in the water/mud
  • Placed in more mud & shot it underwater
  • Dropped the gun from the roof of house – approx 2nd floor
  • Run it over with a vehicle
  • Soaked in Aunt Jemima syrup
  • Lubed it with peanut butter
  • Soaked it in shampoo – different viscosity
  • Smeared in vegetable shortening

The only thing that could have disable the gun is to break the safety.
Overall, the CPX-2 did well. Can you think of what else could have been done to this CPX-2?
