USA – -(Ammoland.com)-Sturm, Ruger & Co., Inc. (NYSE: RGR) is proud to introduce the new Ruger LCP II Pistol. Since its original introduction in 2008, the LCP has set the industry standard for compact, reliable .380 Auto pistols.

Rather than rest on that accomplishment, Ruger has built upon that solid performance to produce the new, best-in-class LCP II pistol.

The LCP II features a short, crisp, single-action trigger with inner trigger safety, improved sights for superior visibility, a larger grip surface for better distribution of recoil forces and an easy-to-rack slide with an improved slide stop mechanism with a last round hold-open.

With its compact size (just 5.17″ long and 3.71″ tall), this new lightweight compact pistol comes with a pocket holster and is designed to fit a variety of holsters and concealed carry options.

Weighing in at just 10.6 ounces and equipped to hold 6+1 rounds of powerful .380 Auto ammunition, the LCP II is the ideal back-up gun – compact and light enough that you never have to leave it at home.

“With modern styling, improved features and a modest price, the Ruger LCP II Pistol promises to raise the bar on what people have come to expect in a compact .380 Auto pistol,” said Ruger President and COO Chris Killoy.

“The Ruger LCP II Pistol is another fine example of Ruger's product innovation and dedication to continuous improvement of a popular product line,” he concluded.

The American-made Ruger LCP II Pistol is built on a rigid, one-piece, precision-machined, anodized aluminum chassis with integral frame rails and fire control housing. Additional features include rugged construction with a through-hardened alloy steel slide; a black, one-piece, high-performance, glass-filled nylon grip frame; a textured grip frame to provide a secure and comfortable grip; a finger grip extension floorplate that can be added to the magazine for comfort and more secure grip, and a blued, alloy steel barrel. The LCP II ships with one 6-round magazine.

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.

My wife can’t rack the slide on the LCP II; not enough strength. Am working it now, any other suggestions?

Bought an LCP 11 2 weeks ago . Took my lcp ruger 11 to the gun range . Shot a box of 50 Remington copper . No problems . Then opened a box of Winchester flat nose no coating . Each shot the magazine dropped out no matter how I placed my hand .

My wife carries the LCP custom 500 rounds with Tulammo and not ONE failure of any kind.Try that with a Kahr,she wants the LCP with the slide hold open feature so she’ll be getting one. I would carry the LCP any day as BUG ,as I’m in law enforcement. The only 380’s in its league is the indestructible Glock 42 ,and the Beretta Pico,these are the only three pistols I would trust my life to as backup.The Kel tecs run fine have and carry one one but they need to get with the program and have last round hold open… Read more »

Just got though putting 250 rounds though my new LCP ll . There is no comparison to the older LCPs even the LCP Custom. This the best pock carry ever…

I just bought one for my wife. She loves it. It fits her hands and she can fire many rounds without her hand hurting as it will with larger calibers. And a weapon that feels good and is comfortable to grip and familiar to handle beats out the advantage of larger calibers and magazine capacities when it comes right down to it. Lots of people here have an opinion of smaller caliber weapons and like to toss out remarks about why their choice is best. I’m guessing fully 99% have ever needed to draw a weapon, much less fire one… Read more »

Eric said: “Personally, I do not like single action, cocked with one-in-the-pipe, trigger safety pistols. I think that they are an accident waiting to happen.” I too am uncomfortable with this for my wife. I wouldn’t worry much about it for myself, as I am very careful and never holster into the pocket. Carrying a pistol without one in the pipe is, to my mind, pretty useless, as there most likely won’t be enough time to rack in an emergency. Again, I do worry about my wife, though. It may be that she will want to carry the custom (when… Read more »

I have the original LCP with custom sights, improved spring, and a grip sleeve. It’s a wonderful pocket carry weapon. It’s so broken-in that it’s just buttery now. I’ve bonded so much with it and shoot it very well. I cannot imagine a better replacement and certainly this isn’t one. I’ve got close to 1500 rounds my 2009 model without a single failure to feed, fire, or eject…ever. Personally, I do not like single action, cocked with one-in-the-pipe, trigger safety pistols. I think that they are an accident waiting to happen. I’ll stick to my DA/SA Sigs and S&Ws, and… Read more »

Today I bought one of these for my wife for Christmas. It’s really a nice little gun, excerpt for the almost invisible little black sights. I know, I know, close-up defense gun. We shoot at the range every Saturday and DO use sights.

Get out the sight paint!

Take a look at 380 ballistics performance on ballistics gel and maybe you will not make fun of it. Personally, I prefer a 40 ca., but 6 plus one of 380 when you need, is nothing to sneeze at.

I have a LCP that I carry daily. Having choices is nice; but, I won’t be needing this new offering from Ruger. If I were buying a LCP for the first time, I would still get a DAO LCP like mine. For a longer ranged gun I would prefer a different trigger action and cartridge and my G-19 fits that bill.

Totally agreed the new Trigger is not as safe as the longer pull Old Trigger. I have both give , the new one has an even lighter pull than a G26.

The LCP already had a horribly weak recoil spring rated at 9 lb. Custom replacement helped reduce the awful recoil caused by this with 12 lb springs. My Taurus TCP 380 / 738 PT come stock with a 14LB recoil spring. So did I honestly read correctly, they are intentionally making their super light 9lb recoil spring even weaker? [ Edit: Confirmed by review at gunsamerica review that the LCP II has “snappier recoil than the older LCP and LCP Custom models.] Apparently Ruger originally did this to target the female audience who purchase many of the sub-compact 380s (note… Read more »

So how about a pocket holster and KEEPING YOUR FREAKING FINGER OFF THE TRIGGER UNTIL YOU’RE READY TO FIRE?

I have the LCP 2nd generation stainless that I pocket carry in holster when I can’t wear a cover garment for my larger IWB. I see no reason for upgrade to the LCPII. I should have known a new model was coming out as the stainless model I bought was $215.00 NIB.

Mike, I agree. Plus, I prefer the DAO for pocket carry. That being said, I will still buy the new one.

I own both a Walther PPS and a Ruger LCP Gen 2. There are times that the PPS is just too difficult to conceal.

The trigger guard looks a little TCP like. Not a bad thing having shot the LCP a lot.

I like Ruger products; I have a few. But for thickness this gun is approximately the same dimension as a Walther PPS. The latter is a 9MM– in my opinion, a far superior round– and is available with 6,7, or 8 round mags. Length and height are a little larger; price is a little higher. But there’s room on the grip for my hand, and it is 9MM. I generally equate .380 with 9X18, although there are more varied rounds available.

Your PPS is 21 oz without ammo. I carry both a CW380 and a CW9 (lighter tank your PPS). Trust me, there is a big difference in both concealability and comfort..

…well, Anthony, I’d hate to get in front of a .380 defense round.
Maybe you are superman or something –
but good placement of this caliber will ruin your day.
YMMV

That isn’t the issue, John. Calling it “powerful” is the issue. A properly placed .22 Short can ruin your day (if you take one in the eye, through the roof of your mouth, or in your ear), but that doesn’t make it “powerful”.

If you want to argue _that_ point, be my guest, but you’ll look pretty silly.

“Powerful” is a relative term and is about as useful in argumentation as calling a shrimp “jumbo” (which, for the uninitiated, can vary as widely as 8 “U” sizes). I.e., very inexact terminology which is appropriate and meaningful only to user who has a predetermined notion of exactly what the terms means, and whether it is meant to be comparative or standalone. So, in this instance, the term “powerful” is as appropriate and correctly descriptive as the user deems it to be. Any other supposition of what the user intended, is just that, supposition.

The new all copper ammo from Lehigh and Underwood makes the .380 round absolutely lethal. It’s wound channel is TWICE that of competing lead cartridges, much higher velocity, and penetration of 12-13 inches in clear gel.

Would you LOL after being shot with a .380 ?????? Don’t think so.
