I've been looking at SCCY's just out of curiosity and went to visit there forum. A new SCCY owner complained about FTE's on his new SCCY. He sent it back to the company 3 times for "repair", and still does it. All the support he got from fellow SCCY owners was just "I hope you get it worked out" type of thing. the first thing I got here when I complained about FTE's on my new Hi-Point, was a reference to "Limp Wrist!" I haven't been back to the range to verify your diagnosis, but I am sure you are correct. What amazed me at the SCCY forum, is not one mention of "Limp Wrist" or any other operator trouble. You would think after sending it back 3 times, and there is still a problem, someone might have mentioned a problem with the operator! Amazing.
