    Looks aside, it may be a very natural feeling gun. Who makes it? What cal? Size, weight? Capacity?

    At least its not a Glock! Someone tried to make that grip for a human on that Vector. Glocks are for people with square hands I guess? Why else would they make square grips?

    Ummm... weren't these all recalled by the manufacturer or importer due to safety issues?

    This gun was recalled due to a problem involving the trigger system. Essentially, the gun is completely untrustworthy when loaded and may fire if dropped, or just sitting there cocked.

    The importer will pay for the return of the gun for destruction. I think the total is more than the $375 you paid.

    I wouldn't shoot or load this thing. If you want to collect useless pistols, remove the firing pin and store it where no one can mistake it for a useable firearm.

    Follow up, Vektor CP1..

    This is a quick range report following 10rd's...

    Since I still have my headach I wanted to find out how the gun group's,so I went down into the pit on our land( Pit is 50ft deep and 7oft across at the top and 25ft at the bottom) and useing
    a 50ft nra target steped off to around 20ft,7 hit's were in the black and 3in the 8 ring..

    Vektor PISTOL RECALL: The manufacturer of the VEKTOR CP1 and CP1N pistols says that a small percentage of these pistols may accidentally fire when dropped or bumped, possibly causing injury or death to the shooter or bystanders. Owners are being asked to RETURN their pistols, for which they will be compensated including an incentive payment for their inconvenience. amount of $500.00 was to be paid for each return...

    The Vektor CP1 has a gas retarded blowback action like found on the HK-P7..

    Caliber: 9X19
    Overall Length(Slide): 7 in
    Height Including Mag.: 5.5 in.
    Width: 1 in.
    Length Between Sights: 5.3 in.
    Barrel Length: 4 in
    Magazine Capacity: 10

    The Vektor CP1 is from South Africa. It has a polymer
    frame for corrosion resistance and light weight. Its accuracy is enhanced
    by the use of a delayed gas blow-back system which reduces felt recoil
    and allows for a quicker, more accurate second shot. The CP1 comes
    with a 4-inch barrel and a 10 round magazine........

    So are you going to have fun with it and shoot it until it breaks and then send it or are you just going to shoot it for so many rounds before making your profit?

    The Vektor is a funky design, and one of the few gas-retarded blowback guns on the market. Too bad they had safety issues...it looked like it would be a great little CCW piece, nice and flat with smooth edges all around.

    firestar,

    post count isn't everything, ya know.

    I actually like the design of the CP1. That funky curvaceous grip seems to be the forerunner of the more modern P99.

    And check out the trigger guard-mounted safety. Cool! :cool:

    But, I should be very worried about the safety issues on that gun.

    Be very careful with that thing.

    Needless to say, CCW is not an option!

    Be safe. ;)

    I like the safety's location, and frankly, I think it's kind of cute. I doubt I'd ever trust one, but I'm sure a competent gunsmith could look your gun over and give you an educated opinion.

    I wouldn't even hesitate. Send it back and make a profit, and avoid any possible problems.
