Ruger® LCP® II .380 ACP Semi-automatic Pistol
Blending the rock-solid reliability of the original with some smart refinements, the LCP® II proves that even the BEST can get better! At just 5.17 inches long and a mere 10.6 ounces, it's still the same easily-concealed pocket pistol it always was. It still goes bang every single time you pull the trigger, and it still has that pinch-yourself price tag that made the original LCP the most attractive option in its class.
Simply put, the LCP II takes nearly every aspect of the original and gives it a new level of polish, so it feels just a little better, and shoots just a little sweeter. First and foremost, the longer double-action only trigger of the original LCP is gone, replaced by a new single-action only trigger that features an integrated safety. The new trigger delivers a shorter, crisper trigger pull that breaks clean at 5-6 pounds.
The trigger guard itself has been enlarged for easier access by your trigger finger, and now features a trigger stop that keeps over-travel to a minimum and reset as short as possible. The backstrap is a little wider, so it feels a little more substantial in your hand, and the grip has been overhauled with a more aggressive texturing for enhanced control. The slide has been redesigned as well, and now features front and rear serrations. It locks open when the last round has been fired -- a nice quality-of-life enhancement -- and when you DO have to manually operate the slide, you'll notice a softer recoil spring. Rounding out the package are higher, wider sights and a loaded chamber view port that lets you visually confirm that the internal hammer is cocked. All in all, the LCP II represents a step forward for the already-iconic LCP platform. We're excited by the LCP II, but we're even MORE excited by the modest price tag.
PLEASE NOTE: Six-round LCP magazines are compatible with the LCP II, but will not activate the last round hold-open feature of the LCP II. Seven-round LCP magazines are NOT compatible with the LCP® II.
