Well I bit the bullet and got a LCP II, First I would suggest that if you are going to buy a new gun, you may want to check on line and your LGS- I found that my LGS was the same as the ones on line ( $269.00+ tax) when you add the tax or the transfer fee they was about the same price and I got it without waiting.
On Tuesday it got up in the 50’s so it was a good range day- I ran 150 to 200 rounds thru it (I lost count). It eat everything that I had (about 20 Speer-Gold Dot 90gr,25 Hornady Critical Defense 90gr,20 Federal Premium 90gr hydra-shok JHP, 50 Am Eagle 95 gr and 50 Winchester 95 gr full metal jacket). The trigger was great (better than my friends Glock 42 (and a lot smaller-same number of shots). This is a not a long range gun, but I was able to put all of the shots in the 10” black at 21 ft. (which is all you need for a “O-sh_t Gun).
I think that I’ll still carry my LC9s Pro in my Blue jeans, but when the wife make me dress-up the LCP II will be my pick.

Cool, I'm hoping for a bit better accuracy than I get with my old one.

Now that my big carry gun is a G-23 switching to an LCPII just seems logical to me.

It's nice to see another positive LCP II report. Mine hasn't jammed and I'm holding about 6" at 10 yds. I really like the very controllable and SAFE trigger.

I'm confused when it comes to the LCP II.

Is it striker-fired like a Ruger American , or DAO like
a LCP?

I've really not given any thought about owning another
LCP (I've had 2)



or anymore .380s until the advent of the
LCP II, but single action, striker and DAO are often
mentioned in the same post or article.

With my Fibromyalgia and CT Syndrome..I really can't operate
a LCR or SP-101 like I used to, so I'm thinking LCP II trigger
pull might be better.

I have to also state that the RAP Compact's slide is pretty hard to
pull back and chamber a round, but I'm not alone with this, 54
or not.

Thanks.

Kev

The LCP II is generally stated as being a single action. It is certainly hammer fired. After the initial take-up, the trigger does move the hammer back an additional 1/32" or so be for releasing the hammer. The movement of the slide either manually or in recoil, does the bulk of the work in moving the hammer rearward. The slide is real easy to rack. I doubt you would have any issues with it and the trigger after the initial take-up has 1/4" movement at about 6 lbs in pull weight. If you are interested go to a gun store and check them out.

Picking up my LCPII tomorrow, so this is a good report to here. Like many, I've heard mixed reviews about the pistol but keeping in mind that on internet forums you are likely only to hear only about the negative experiences.

Like you, I also have an LC9s, which I literally just purchased Friday and have put about 150 rounds through it. I saw the LCPII and thought I'd pick one of them up as well.

I traded my first edition LCP for a LCP custom right before the LCPII came out. I am happy with the LCP custom. I have read several complaints about the LCPII so I have no reason to trade again. just my .02

Same as the above, love my carry Custom. But then I did go back and buy an extra LCP Gen-II as "throw in the glove box, knock around gun."
