Compromising quality for price is the way things go, but the SCCY CPX-9 is an outstanding handgun for the money and excels in reliability and quality. For around $300, I think it’s one of the best options out there for the price.

We’ve put several hundred rounds through a different CPX-2, and agree with Don (Sootch) that this hammer-fired, DAO pistol is an incredible value for the money. Designed from the ground up as an economical defensive handgun the CPX-2 and the CPX-1 (which adds a manual safety) simply get the job done with no muss and no fuss.
