So my only reliable solution is not to use my usual 2 thumbs forward grip with left hand filling the right hand grip opening high up. I think it is my left hand tripping the mag release, because strong side only doesn't trip the mag so far. So something between the ineffective teacup grip and my usual grip, but where the supporting left hand is gripping lower than usual, below the mag release. I see videos of others shooting this with usual grip, so I hope it's not my gun. This gun is so cool, but has been a little disappointing. Replaced a bad extractor. Replaced a bad mag. Sensitive mag release. It would be nice to get feedback from others here on whether they do or don't modify their two handed grip on the LCP II. Perhaps I should post another question that is more specific on grip.
