  • Problems with Ruger LCP??

    I know there are some other LCP threads out there, but I didn't see anything about this...

    Two questions...

    1) Is the LCP's slide supposed to lock back when the magazine is empty?

    2) Has anyone had malfunctions where the spent round ejects properly, but the next round is not chambered all the way?

    It's a brand new gun, cleaned and oiled...

    1. No, the slide does not lock back on an empty mag.

    2. No, never had a problem with any stoppages or malfunctions on any of my 2 LCP's.
    Politically Correct? No.

    Truthful? Yes!

        no on the slide locking back and no on the problems with the next round being chambered. check your ammo and maybe try something different?

          Yes I experienced the same problem yesterday when shooting my daughters LCP for the first time. It would fire 2 rounds, eject and load the 3rd round ok, but wouldn't go bang. It happened every time. It was a disappointing shooting session to say the least. We tried two different brands of ammo and it happened to both.
          Got home and took it apart to clean and it was extremely dirty. Way too dirty to be caused by the shooting session we had just put it thorough. I cleaned it up and we'll take it back out. If it doesn't work like it's supposed to, we'll get rid of it.

              Did Ruger recall the LCP?

                I don't believe that they recalled the LCP, but they did recall the SR9. I have had zero problems with my LCP thus far. I've got about 500 rounds down the pipe. I will not carry a gun unless I get about 500 trouble free rounds through it.

                  No.

                  No problems with mine, either. Works as advertised.

                    shot 50 rounds well then i believe a combo of bad ammo and no oil caused a lot of problems for me... the gun wouldnt return to battery completely...

                    added buko oil and qualified sans any problems

                      I had similar problems w/ my Ruger LCP- it would fire 2-3 rounds then jam up.
                      I took it to Prescott and dropped it off. 2 weeks later I got it back in the mail.
                      The replaced the ejector and repaired the barrel.
                      Took it to the range and fired off a box of 50 w/o any problems.
                      It's a hell of of a nice gun.

                        I fired mine right out of the box without any precleaning and had one Fail to Feed on the first mag. I cleaned, oiled, and polished the feedramp and have had no other problems after over 100 rounds.

                          I'm going to polish the feed ramp and take it out this weekend and give it another try. If it doesn't work this time, It's history.
