SCCY Industries was formed in 2003 by Joe Roebuck. Originally, the company name was to be Skyy, but after trademark concerns regarding the use of the name by SKYY vodka, the name was changed to SCCY. Since 2010, the company manufactures all firearms in a factory in Daytona Beach, Florida. Prior to 2010, the guns were manufactured in South Daytona, Florida. All sales and marketing for the company is based in Acworth, Georgia, a northwest suburb of Atlanta.
SCCY designed the pistol with an internal hammer and has a double action trigger pull. All parts of the CPX-1 pistol, except for the springs, are manufactured in-house by SCCY. Slides are manufactured from heat treated hex steel. The company molds its own polymer frames and makes its own magazines.
