Official SCCY DVG-1 Availability Statement

sccy dvg-1 shipping covid-19 when will the dvg-1 be available

There has been quite the talk about the DVG-1 not being available anywhere. There have been a number of people that are even blaming SCCY. I am in no way affiliated with SCCY, but I stand by them and their products. I decided to reach out to my contacts there and see about an official statement.

First off, I don’t know if many of you have noticed, but we are in the middle of a pandemic at the moment. I do the social media for a gun shop in Orlando, Florida, and I can tell you that it has been madness. The moment that talks of lock downs were happening, EVERYONE ran to buy a firearm. People didn’t know what they were buying, and they didn’t care about the price. They didn’t even care if we didn’t have the ammo for it. They bought EVERYTHING.

What does that mean? That means there is a massive demand, and manufacturers and distributors are struggling to keep up.

Here is how gun sales work from the factory:
  • The factory needs to get materials shipped to them (steel, plastic, and so on) from outside sources
  • The factory makes the guns with that material
  • Distributors buy guns from the factory in bulk and at wholesale prices
  • Gun stores (FFLs) buy those guns from distributors
  • The citizen buys from the FFL

SCCY has said that they are running 24 hours per day, 7 days a week, and that they have been for some time just to try and keep up. The orders they have are exceeding what they can keep up with for the long running CPX series as is, let alone the new DVG-1.

“It’s going to take some time to see volume,” SCCY explained. They also said that they are intentionally starting with a slower production to maintain quality control since this is a brand new product for them.

“You’ll see more and more available in the near future, but with anything new, it takes times to convert machines, fixtures, train operators... etc.”

SCCY reiterated the fact that they are running 24/7. However, Covid-19 has indeed given them some issues that’re making such a feat challenging. They are not receiving supplies as abundantly as before, and they have to keep their staff safe. “To us, our staff is our top priority and we will continue to evolve with the situation.”

Back to my personal take... I believe that SCCY is doing the best that they can. Remember the toilet paper shortage we had a while ago? In all honesty, this is the same thing. Toilet paper manufacturers were doing everything they could to get the product to their distributors, and stores were buying up as much as they could to stock their shelves. However, people came in and panic bought everything. When product did start to slowly come back in, people ran up and took it.

It’s the same in the gun world right now. Factories can’t magically go faster. Safety and quality standards HAVE to be followed. The DVG-1 will start getting out there soon! Just hang tight.
