(This is a better version of my review from 5 years ago.) If not for its utterly sci-fi looks securing its popularity in Hollywood, the Vektor CP1 would be a forgotten and unloved 9mm from South Africa thanks to a safety recall in the early 2000s. This is a shame, in my opinion, because it isn't just a looker, it's also an excellent shooter and very enjoyable at the range, with surprisingly decent build quality to boot. Its unwavering dedication to looking like Mission: Mars 2050 may have it giving up something in the ergonomics and handling departments, but I still think they deserve a place in the collections of shooters looking for a 9mm that's both an interesting conversation piece and fun to use.
