I bought a new CCP M2 almost a month ago and fed it 300 rds (federal brass).
The gun is very well balanced and very ergonomic.
Shooting it at reset makes a nice and tight group, something that doesn't happen with me at long pulls. Maybe it is me, but tighter grip makes the best results. It feels like the harmonics of the gun's recoil is made to dump the mag at a target right off reset and reload.
Grip serrations on the slide are very aesthetic but they seem insufficient to my wife who can barely pull it all the way back to load.
Strangely enough, I noticed there is a certain situation in which you may end up with loaded chamber but gun not cocked. There is about 3mm of travel of the slide past the loading point to cock the firing pin.
It is nothing to be concerned of, and in a normal situation you wouldn't even notice it, but I just decided to be petty.
It heats up well when you bang out 100 rounds, but frame seems to dissipate the heat very well.
Came with 3 front sights, numbered 0,1 and 2, 1 was installed and shooting low at 7 yds. However, the ballistic curvature of the shot is very precise at 25 yds so I wonder if it is worth changing.
At night I'm blind as a bat, and sights are not helping at all. In fact the white on them is barely visible. Since you can't focus on back and front usually the front should be larger. At Walther they think you have bifocal sight so they decided to leave them generically the same size.
Other than what's mentioned, absolutely no issues and I grew fond of the conceal-ability of this gun. A notch above P365 and Ruger LC9S it makes very little print on my perfectly round beer gut. :)

Excellent. Thank you for the report and glad your liking it.

Glad you’re happy with your CCP. I have about 2000 rounds through mine and aside from my wife having some limp wristing issues I’ve never had a problem.

My trigger has smoothed out very nicely after a couple hundred rounds and rivals the trigger on my pps, with the exception of the reset. You mention shooting off the reset, my reset is long and almost out all the way. It’s almost a single action.
The sights are ok. The white dots are deeply recessed and difficult to see in low light.

That being said it’s still a remarkable shooting pistol. Very easy in follow up shots, easy to get the gun back on target and easy to get great follow up shot placement. As far as the sights I just consider them to be “blacked out” and am ok with them.

The CCP is certainly a conundrum. When they work they are great guns, despite their flaws they are great shooters. That is when they work....

Glad you like your CCP M2. Sweet pistol IMHO. I really like my CCP M2. I have arthritis in both hands, but I don’t have any issues racking the slide. Limp wrist is another problem, which I’m working hard to correct. Yes, it does get warm, but nothing I can’t handle. I love shooting this pistol. I had night sights installed and for me, also blind at night, really helps. It eats almost anything I put through it. We got some cheap stuff that seemed to have too much case lube still on them and it didn’t like that much. Pretty much everything else is fair game.

This is true, reset is pretty much non existent on this pistol.
It is very peculiar gun to shoot and whoever said it is easy to shoot is shooting at 10 yds range. Not that it is a sniper rifle, but I noticed hard grip makes the disadvantage of the long reset more noticeable.
All that long travel distorts grouping a little bit, in my case to the right, since I tend to be more of a leftie when shooting.
Still, I like this gun for the ability to slide the rack and lower thumb safety in one single move. Not too many other pistols have similar design probably because it was thought to be useless altogether.
At the 200th round it gets unpleasantly hot, it makes you feel if the picatinny rail is for mounting something or cooling.
It definitely takes some time to get the hang of the pistol, but that is valid for any other.
Once I was familiar with the dynamics of it, it became real fun to shoot.
I am not a fan and crazy about the sights, they shouldn't have made them plastic,...

...At night I'm blind as a bat...
Nice review. My CCP has been fine since I first got it. Heavier projectiles and dry or dry-lubed piston and cylinder helped a lot with the no-rails pistol getting used to itself.

My post, however, is about night vision. Mine got to the point where I didn't want to drive at night. About 10 years ago my ophthalmologist suggested I try "eye vitamins/minerals–with Lutein– for a month or two. I did and after about 30 days I began to notice improvement. I've taken a capsule a day ever since and my night vision at 76 is as good now as it ever was.

Eye Caps

I Also got one with the stainless steel slide in 9 mm a week before fathers day. I was extremely pumped about this gun. Took it 2 days later to the range after cleaning and lubing. Fired off 50 rds of Federal Hydroshok 124 gr no issues. Fired 50 rds of Lawman 124 gr with no issues. Fired or attempted to fire 100 rds of American Eagle 115 gr....many many issues. Was able to fire 1...i mean one, uno 8 rd magazine without issues. the rest was FTF, FTE and stovepipes, one after the other. Went back out the next week since I wanted to carry thus gun which by the way I did because there was no issues with JHP, This time fired 8 rds of Federal HST 124 gr no issues, 50 rds Winchester WB 115 gr 1 FTF, 50 rds of Lawman 124 gr no issues, another 100 rds of American Eagle 115 gr this time only 16 failures. Evidently this gun is no to loving with 115 gr. and loves 124 gr. But one issue and you mentioned it and is on racking the slide all the way back to activate/cock the firing pin to activate trigger. You can't do a 1/2 pull on slide because it just doesn't cock the firing pin to enable a trigger pull. Is there anything that can be done to fix this? And even a spring that will allow the 115 gr to cycle without issues? This is the only gun that I had ever had issues with ammo. But love that it can be conceal so easily. Love how it feels in the hand and shoots. Unlike the previous post mine does get hot after around 100 rd but mine gets extremely hot.

No, both the firing pin block and sear for the striker hook are a long way from the chamber. It can be pretty common for a firearm to short stroke the slide due to dirt, weak ammo, limp wristing but I'm not sure I know of another pistol that can chamber a round without cocking the hammer/striker. To add insult to injury the firing pin nose of the uncaught striker will then rest against the live primer. I believe I'd make sure I carried with ammo that was thoroughly tested for 100% function. 1917
