A bunch of my friends are bringing these to matches now. Allowed in USPSA and IDPA.
We have tuesday night USPSA practice night with one stage set up that you can run through as many times as you like. A lot of guys are bringing pistol caliber carbines and tearing up the stage with blistering times. It looks like a lot of fun and it would be a great skills builder at close ranges.
My friend a recently retired Army senior NCO, is loving his and taking it to different matches every weekend. He is a highly skilled master level shooter and he's doing really well with the MPX.
Several of the MPXs I've seen look customized with triggers, aimpoints special mags etc. I have seen quite a few jams with guys using handloads and with mags using teran tactical extensions. Generally, the stock model with ordinary ammo looks to be reliable.
I think I want one. I'm just not sure I'm ready to invest $1500-2000 on another gun.

Are they shooting them true pistol style?

I just bought the "pistol" version. Two differnt generations with two seperate mag gens. Not sure what the difference is between the two generations but Gen 1 mags and the Gen 2 firearm are a no go. And vice verse.

Concealable as shit though!!!

I would bet Pistol Caliber Carbine. That was a "provisional" division last year.

They are shooting PCC, pistol caliber carbine class. They shoot it as a carbine not as a pistol. Click here for a video of a stage
If you pick an MPX this would be a very fun activity

Awesome. I'm probably more likely to assemble an AR type but who knows.

One of my guys bought one and brought it to the range a few weeks ago. We ran it against AR SBR's and an HK PDW. Everyone that shot the new Sig liked it best. Hard to describe but it's a super fun gun to shoot. Guys were passing up the full auto PDW to shoot the Sig. I'm teetering on buying the pistol variant with the new telescoping "wrist brace" stock.

Seems pretty tough. Only issue so far is chambering a round. I less than 30 rounds through mine and it's all still a little stiff.

I've had 4 for about 2 years. 3 Carbines and a pistol that I ended up sbr'ing. They are a ton of fun, very good quality and I have run a bunch of different factory ammo through them with no issues.

Only issue I have with mine is the muzzle break on one of the carbine versions rings like a tuning fork after every shot, or even when you release the bolt catch.

Run any hollow points through them? Course as to how it would take them

Not yet. I'll give that a whirl soon.

I've been talking to some USPSA friends who are shooting this class. I was thinking about getting a CZ Scorpion and they all said the most competitive carbines are either SIG MPX or homebuilt 9mm ARs.

What timing...
I was going to try and pick up a Scorpion this weekend. But with all this talk of the MPX, it sounds like this might be the better choice.

Has anyone shot both the MPX and the Scorpion?
Likes dislikes?

The only PCCs I've handled are Kel-Tecs costing 20 to 30
% of what that Sig does, and you usually get what you pay for. However, one thing that might carry over is the difference in caliber. There is negligible difference in the size, weight, or recoil of the 9mm versus .40 Kel-Tecs, but the shooting performance of the .40 is much better than the 9mm. If you are looking at the Sig, before buying you might check out any other calibers it comes in and see which one you prefer.
