Hands-On Reviews & Related Post

final verdict

“The size, weight, reliability, capacity, and feel of the CSX make it a really good option for concealed carry. Especially for those that want a metal framed gun with single-action trigger, exposed hammer, & manual safety. And while the trigger takes a bit of getting used to, the accuracy it provides is a juice worth the squeeze. The ergonomics are also great, particularly for left-handed shooters, although large-handed folks might need an alternative.” – Sean Curtis
