South African handgun importer Vektor USA has closed up shop on the CP-1 pistol and if you attempt to contact the company, all you will get is a recorded message that says in part: "Due to circumstances beyond our control, Vektor is suspending sales and marketing of the CP-1 pistols... if you are calling about the safety warning on the CP-1, please call 011-27-12-620-2616." The phone number is a listing in South Africa.

We covered the Vektor a number of years ago when a reporter ran across a gun in Europe, long before it was imported to the U.S. At the time, we were generous in describing the gun as "reliability challenged." When the company began importing the pistol to the U.S., we passed on the opportunity to re-review it in Handgunner. As they might say in Africa, a leopard doesn't change its spots. We're sorry they're out of business, but with a gun that jammed as much as the CP-1 did, it's little wonder.
