LCP II failure to feed Big Time Problem!

I purchased a brand new LCP II .22 about 4 days ago after seeing all the glowing reports about it on Youtube.

Took it home thoroughly cleaned and lubed it. Took it to the range after purchase three separate models of CCI .22 ammo. The Velocitor, the Stinger and the Segmented HP, all of which reportedly are the most reliable .22 ammo out there.

Almost every shot ended up with a failure to feed the next round, this with mag that came with the weapon and the extra one I picked up with the pistol.

This is 150 rounds fired, and maybe at best 10 rounds where the next round in the magazine actually fed right.

To me it looks like the feed ramp wasn't cut far enough into the barrel and has kind of a sharp edge to it that hangs up the bullets, what do you guys think?

That sure looks too sharp to be right on that ramp.....I'll look when I can tear mine down. I've had zero problems but I'm using pretty good ammo......minimags, velocities, stingers and Aguila 40gr round nose copper plated.

Any particular reason you’re going through your LGS to ship/receive the pistol? When I’ve sent guns to Ruger and Walther, they send me via email, forms and FedEX shipping information. Shipping to/from my house.

Last time I had to ship back to Ruger I discovered not all FedEx outlets accept guns. My local FE asked what the contents were and then told me they don't ship guns. It can't be a huge deal though because I talked them into it since I already had a label and it was boxed up. From now on I will ask for a pick up at home.

The only time I had FedEx refuse to ship a gun, was when I had to pay for the shipping myself. If the company sent me a shipping label, and I brought it packed with the label on, they accepted it. Yes, you have to tell them what it is.

I returned an LCPII for service in December. FedEx accepted it, only asking if I had a supplied shipping label from Ruger. I did, and they accepted it with no issues. That is actually the official policy from FedEx.

It is there policy if you bring it to a" shipping center "or whatever it was called. Where I live the nearest one is about 40 miles or so. The local sender is some kind of a subcontractor and maybe they set their own rules. Never could get anywhere trying to talk to a real person at corporate. Ruger will send a pick up if they have to so that is my plan if I need to ever ship something back.

Thanks for the suggestion of pickup. I have about a two hour round trip to my FedEx center.

Update: they agreed to do pickup via UPS.....its off to Ruger.

I wanted to do this through my LGS because I am going out of town for a couple of weeks and I didn't want to have the weapon undeliverable at that time.

Went to my LGS yesterday and there was a one hour wait to talk to a representative, people are insanely buying up weapons because of this Coronavirus, you would think this was the coming Zombie Apocalypse and not just another Flu.

Anyways went home recontacted Ruger explained my situation and they told me the turn around time for this repair would be 7 to 10 days giving me more than ample time before I leave, not the 6 to 8 weeks like my currently being services DiamondBack DB9 Gen 4.

The pistol was FedExed last night since I live in Arizona may be an hour away from their Prescott AZ factory, I'm sure I will get it back in time.

After I packed up the weapon and slapped the pre-paid RMA shipping label provided by Ruger I simply dropped it off at a local FedEx office about 3 miles from my house. The shipping label doesn't say Ruger and there is nothing there that it would indicate there is a weapon in there, and the clerk only asked if anything in the box was fragile.

Of course, I live in 2nd Amendment friendly Arizona moving out of the Peoples Republic of Illinois 19 years ago.

Could be. I might talk to FedEx about it though. They may be circumventing FedEx policy. I dropped mine off at the local FedEx store, which used to be Kinkos. As for Ruger sending a pick up, sounds like a hassle free plan.

I returned my 380 lcp ii to ruger. Just heard they are prepping to return it to me. They replaced the slide and the barrel and fired 32 shots without a hitch. Shows up here next Monday.....yay!

My .380 LCP II is also currently at Ruger, for the 2nd time. Hopefully it gets sorted out this time, fingers crossed.

Good, Lord. With that picture alone, you should get a replacement barrel, a box of ammo, and a paper hat for your birthday.
