Think of replacing my SCCY 9mm

I am thinking of replacing my SCCY CPX-1 sec gen.I like the gun and have never had a problem in 500 rds but I purchased a SR22p and I like the way the grip feels. I understand that the SR9C is pretty close in feel to the SR22p. So I am thinking of either the SR9C or the LC9 as I like the feel of it too. If you were to choose what would you get. I use it for CCW and shooting at the range.

I purchased my own SR-22 specifically because of the LCP and LC9 pistol’s I was shooting and couldn’t be more pleased. My SR9 handles a bit like my SR22 but the triggers are quite different due to their design, but this works out quite well. So in answer to your question, yes, a SR9c or SR40c would be well complemented with an SR22 as a primary trainer.

The LC9 would be a lighter than either the SCCY CPX-1 or the SR9C. However, the trigger on the LC9 would more nearly duplicate the SCCY CPX-1's trigger [DA only]. The SR9C would be slightly heavier than the SCCY CPX-1 and slightly larger. The trigger would be entirely different ... much lighter and much shorter.

The SR9C and the SCCY CPX-1 are two entirely different animals according to what I've read on the SCCY CPX-1.

Lets see now,you have a gun that works every time ? why get rid of it,Trade value is only $100 to $150,I would keep it as an extra as some other Mfgs have had issue and people have had to wait for them to come back.

If you can conceal the SR9c, then I would highly reccommend it. I carry one daily under just a tucked t-shirt and nobody can tell that I carry. IMO it is a much better choice than a small sub-compact like the LC9 because it is larger and easier to handle. But, it doesn't conceal as well.

I second the vote to keep your current gun and start adding to your collection. Every time I have sold a gun I end up regretting it sooner or later. I have learned my lesson and am trying not to sell any more guns, just keep adding them.

I'm suggesting the SR9c because it gives you the high-cap option for the range AND it's quite easily concealable with the small-cap mag.

Great versatile gun... You'll like it... And it DOES have a nicer grip feel than the SCCY (...which has become my "expendable" permanent car gun BTW).

I have an SR22P and an SR40C. They are radically different pistols besides the difference in calibers. The SR22P is a hammer fired DA/SA trigger pistol that has a safety that also works as a de-cocker. It uses blow-back operation and has an aluminum slide.

The SR40C (or 9C) is a striker fired pistol that's trigger operates most like a SA only. It uses a locked breech system opposed to the blow-back and has a stainless steel slide.

The SR22P is a great pistol and wonderful to shoot. The SR40C is a great pistol and wonderful to shoot. But, getting the SR40C/SR9C and thinking the SR22P will be a great training pistol would be somewhat inaccurate. The SR22P is a great training pistol, but more in terms of practicing trigger control and other shooting mechanics.

However, it breaks down differently, its controls are different, it weighs a lot less and it feels different in the hand compared to the SR40/9C. IMHO buy them as great individual pistols, but not because of their similarities, or differences.

I don't think you can go wrong with the SR9C, but again - comparing either it, or the LC9 to the SR22P, or each other isn't entirely accurate. They all function a little differently and all have different purposes. The biggest similarity that I think matters, is that they are all Rugers. I'm not brand myopic, but I really like all my Rugers!

Thanks everone. As far as the operation I am aware they are different. I have trained with every us miltary and most communist block weapons so operation is not a big deal. I was more interested in the feel of the gun. The SR22p fits my hand well and so does the SR9c and the LC9. I guess what I should of asked is of the two SR9c or LC9 which has the least issues or problems. I think your right and may hold onto the SCCY. Again thanks.
