After reading these comments I'm wondering if the LCP II is the gun for me or one to run away from. I am so tired of paying hard earned cash and getting inferior products. I purchased (2) high-priced Kimbers 1911 target pistols that turned out to be expensive headaches. On the first of this month I picked up a new Sig that I still haven't shot because I've been waiting on Sig to repair it. I just got it back.

I have been researching the LCP II for a BUG because it has all the right features plus it's a Ruger. I have so many Rugers that are, and always have been, perfect. But now I've read a lot of negative comments in this post that are certainly causing me concern. One post usually doesn't sway me one way or the other but the negative comments do peak my interest.

I have found a lot of positive information in my research and that will keep my interest in the LCP II but I'll proceed with caution.

Went scouting around online fro the LCP ll Lowest I seen so far 269.00 GAG, still too high Plus fees and and what nots put it around 320., way too high for there are sites that Have TCPs for 145-165 and fees put it around 190. Maybe 200. if you don't have a CCW,
ill grab a couple more TCPs, Hell Grab a gun Has a 709 for 188.00, I have one of those and its a Great Gun !!! I Like Ruger But as I have said and from what I seen these things arnt flying off the shelves , Not at those prices , and Gun Shows? forgetaboutit!!! they want WAAAAAYYY too much , Just Robbers !!!so what I reading and remember a lot of people are just buying them and may be not going to the range with them , Like they Should ,Just throwing the in Whatever, Purse, Glove box etc, Time will tell, I do not have any experience with this gun , and will not pay way too much for it to find out it have issues , Happy Shooting !!!

There is little incentive to heavily discount a new firearm that is selling so well. I paid MSRP for mine and have no regrets. Mine has proved itself to be a very reliable pistol with a trigger pull that is lighter and better than my PC Shield (5lb 3oz vs 5lb 9oz). To aid the ease of takedown, I did put in the Tandemkross Tool-Less Takedown Pin, but that was not due to any problems with the pistol as produced.

Despite this, my advice would be to buy one because there is selection bias on forums. People often join and post who have issues to share.
I think a firearm needs to function correctly out of the box. Therefore, no choice for correct functioning AFTER a return to have it fixed. I am impressed with the manufacturer fixing these things quickly, but still feel they shouldn't have to be returned to do so, and some are multiple offenders.

I am still on the fence about this one.

When they come down to realistic prices 220-240. then ill look , Most gun stores want 40 to 70 for transfer fees and Background cks that puts that gun in a 300.+ range, Sorry I need my dollars to go as far as they can My P238 runs like a top, But the quality is there in the Sig , I Have had the LCP 2 in My Hands and rack it , trigger feels good, but not 300+ good Put in the TCP Range , The basic TCP ,
Just My Opinion ,

Since you already have a Sig P238 and money is tight, I'm curious as to why you are looking at another pocket pistol? Is there a need that the P238 doesn't fill?

Some with a P238 might have trouble carrying a thumb-safety single action pistol and wind up going for something a bit simpler.

To properly carry a P238, it should be cocked and locked and the shooter has to be disciplined to thumb-off the safety in a stressed situation prior to shooting. A pistol like a Glock or LCP II does not require the thumb safety discipline. Just point and shoot.

Just a thought.

I Like Micro 380s and 380s in general for me since having Major shoulder surgery a few years ago I can shoot the 380s with more comfort, I can still shoot 9s and Have a P2022 FDE, and Ruger 9e and 2 other Taurus's 111 G2 & 709, and the P238, & Bersa 380cc( Most Underrated Firearm) all Good reliable firearms Now for me when I'm at the range I can shoot longer with the 380s, so its not a question Of being cheap, I just feel that the LCP2 is not worth the asking price, The LCP 2 was designed in response to the Last round lock back feature that the Taurus 738 has , was it not? and a better trigger , So the Basic TCP has that Feature, and yes you can get all the pretty colors and what not, at an additional cost, The LCP 2 is as Basic as it gets, so why the high price if your competition, is in the 155.-188.? I'm not saying that is a Bad gun , Just alittle over priced , and really Not proven yet, and of Course we Males, like women with shoes can never have enough guns, weather we buy them and then find out we want the new and improved version or table top gun smithing , Nobody can deny that Sigs are quality built, so if you should have to sell it youll get most if not all of your money, The Ruger LCP2 Not so much , Just a thought

169 Rounds Fired

Hello, I got the LCP 2 for Christmas and have some info for you. 3 trips to the range and completely cleaned gun after every trip.

1st trip: 62 Rounds fired, 2 failures to feed on Magtech ammo, Hornady CD FTX ammo worked fine.
2nd trip: 57 Rounds fired, no issues using Winchester white box FMJ and Hornady CD FTX
3rd trip: 50 Rounds fired, 5 failures to feed on Winchester Jacketed hollow point. 6 out of 50 were the Hornady FTX and had no problems.

I spoke with Ruger customer service today because of a little concern and they were extremely helpful. I guess there has been issues with the Win JHP and some that they've heard of with Hornady although I've not had problems with that ammo. They recommended Black Hills JHP, Federal Hydroshock JHP, Speer Lawman and Gold Dot, and Win PBX1 Defender. I am still happy I purchased the LCP 2 and I just want to find the most reliable ammo for it.

I had one failure to feed using Geco FMJ ammo and no problems feeding either Winchester FMJ, Critical Defense or American Gunner XTP HP. The tip of the Critical Defense ammo showed damage after chambering. A damaged bullet may not feed as well the second time. I was half expecting to have problems with feeding the flat tip Winchester FMJ white box ammo, but it has no problems with that. If you are finding problems with FTF, you might want to try Wolff's 11lb recoil spring. That extra power might be all it needs. It would certainly be an easy and inexpensive fix if it works. My self defense ammo is that American Gunner XTP and it's been very reliable.

Yesterday I went to my local gun shop/range and they were unpacking the latest shipment of handguns included a half-dozen LCP II. I decided to buy one a give it a try. Last night I unboxed and cleaned off the pistol then properly lubed it.

Today I took it to the range. I didn't have a lot of time to shoot but I had to see how the new LCP II would do on its first shoot. I was impressed.

I quickly shot 50 rounds of Remington MC 95g FMJ and then some Hornady Critical Defense Jacketed Hollow Points. The little pistol ran them all perfectly without a single problem.

I was really impressed with its nice sights and great trigger. The recoil was a bit "snappy" but very manageable. An excellent BUG at a reasonable price. Glad I bought it.

Having owned 4 lcp's I would not think about the new LCP ll. One of the worst triggers I have ever shot and unsafe to boot. A ridiculous amount of free Play at the beginning of the pull, feels like the hammer spring is broken. Then a quick release without much preload. I really cannot understand why Ruger moved away from the Gen 2. The new gun also gave me a trigger slap which I have not had before. I also did not think the gun felt as solid as the previous model. A sight vibration.

I highly suggest to get a LCP gen 2 while they are still available. I really thought Ruger was going to do something special with the new model, like the Modular design like the competitors are using. A stainless steal frame, more durable and better quality. ability to change out sights etc. And at the price they want they cannot even ship two magazines. Ruger failed on this one.

Better hope Mr. Mike doesn't see this.
