While ostensibly a pistol designed for concealed carry should not be on display, it’s hard to resist wanting to show off a unique finish on a gun, even if it’s only during range sessions. And if you are an NRA Woman who likes to accessorize with animal prints, this new pistol from SCCY might see you exponentially upping your range time.
The new SCCY DVG Cheetah-pattern dipped print pistol, available exclusively from Davidson’s, won’t make you draw faster or shooter better, but all of that extra range time will pay off should the need arise to draw a handgun in self-defense.
The 9 mm DVG is unique in features other than its finish. For example, unlike the majority of SCCY’s line, the DVG series of pistols is striker-fired. It also incorporates the Roebuck Quad-Lock system, a technology that locks the barrel to the slide in four distinct areas—rear of the chamber; front of the chamber; and two adjacent points at the front of the barrel. What exactly does this mean? Well, the barrel and slide join the two components into one solid piece, which ensures that the barrel returns to the exact same location every time. This means that while locked in battery, the pistol will not allow any side-to-side movement of the barrel, allowing for repeatable accuracy.
SCCY’s polymer-framed sub-compact DVG line has a finger-grooved grip, flat-top slide, iron sights, and a 10+1 round capacity. The sight cuts on the DVG are compatible with Glock 43 sights, allowing you to customize with aftermarket sights. The pistol comes equipped with a flat-faced trigger that has an average 5 ½-lb. trigger pull. The slide has a scratch-resistant black nitride finish with front and rear cocking serrations both. The barrel is 3.1” long with an overall pistol length of 6.01”. The DVG weighs in at 15.5 ozs. Two magazines are included, both with fingertip extension floor plates.
