All I know is the MSRP is $339 for the one gun they sell---the CPX-1 in black or two-tone in 9mm. I'd much rather go with a Kel-Tec at a lower price. You will find much more info on Skyy firearms here: http://www.skyyforum.com/

On a side note, I believe they are being sued by Skyy Vodka for copyright infringements.

I see that on Gunbroker you can pick one up in the mid $200's and figured I would ask if anyone had any first hand knowledge; I think that price range compares about the same with the kel-tecs.

I hear they are not worth the time. I've also seen somewhere on the net that the frames brake. Google is your best friend with this though.

Hi Everyone-
Here is my first post here. I have read several things and this forum is full of great info!!
I own several different brands of firearms.

I recently purchased a Skyy at a local gun show, $250 out the door!
I also read all the horror stories but the gun felt good, so I took a chance.


I brought it home and did my usual initial cleaning and making sure everything was good to go.
Well damn if I didnt break off the screw that held the safety on!

Man was I pissed!! Called Skyy who are located in Florida, they sent me a complete relacement safety with extra screws and the works, no problems. They also told me to call if I had any problems replacing the part.

Thought that was pretty nice since it was really my fault I broke the screw.

Well a couple days past and I recieved the part, easy swap!
I took the gun to the range and decided to just throw rounds down range. I threw 3 boxes of FMJ's, Blazer Brass, PMC and Winchester White box.

Not one fte, ftf-I was happy, the only real thing I had to do was adjust the rear sight! :D
Since them I have been shooting the Skyy as much as possible with no problems.

I cant speak for everyone because I know there are problems out there, but just like any other company that produces firearms there will always be problems.

Groups at 25' were good.
I could probably have done alot better but it was pretty cold and I wasnt dressed for it, (shorts/sweatshirt).
As pictured, last 15 rounds were split 8rnds in one mag, 7rnds in the 2nd.
For fun I tried to place 8 in the bull and the other 7 on the cross in the far left corner, this is what I ended up with.
Plus this wasnt the right type of target for this, but its all I had!


Overall, I am pleased with the performance and overall function.
I did end up with a cut on my thumb knuckle from the recoil, but nothing to bitch about.


Check out Skyyforum.com
But dont be afraid, you'll see alot of horror stories.
There are also alot of succesful stories and some great people who can help.

Customer service is A+
and I am satisfied with the purchase I made.

Sorry for the long first post but I wanted to share my experience with the company and my firearm.
thanks-Mark :D

Thanks for the range report and photos; very nice! Let us know how it holds up as well as you continue to put it through its paces.

what kind of warranty do they have?

the frame looks a little rough and cheap.. hows the fit?

does'nt look like to bad a pocket pistol.. perhaps not something i'd fire at the range all the time but something to throw in a jacket pocket or something if you need.

wonder how it will hold up.. breaking a screw off just putting the safety on? sounds kinda chincy to me.
but it's good to hear they sent you another part.. CS is a great thing to have.

im really interested in the px4-sc when it finally makes it to market.. but i have a strong suspicion they'll be priced higher then im willing to pay.

if you're just lookin for a cheap gun i've heard decent things about hi-point, dont own one my self but i'd like to get a c9 and a 995 carbine.

My newly found dealer says they're warranted for the life of the gun.

He also said Taurus is warranted for the life of the original owner only. Don't know about that.

I'm looking real hard at a Skyy cpx-1 at Skip's.

http://www.skipsfirearms.com/

He's sold out right now, but is getting a bunch more after the first of the year (avoiding inventory tax). As you can see they were $235 when he had the last load in.

He told me he'd sold a pile of them and has had only one with any problems.

His operation is in a half abandoned strip mall in a small town with low taxes. Makes for good prices.

ya it does.. i've got so many guns on my wish list already though.. a nice used one might be the way to go if it has a life time warranty.

It occurs to me that now would be the time to get one, before they start cranking up the prices as you know they will.
