U.S.A.-(Ammoland.com)- Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE-RGR) proudly introduces the LCP II chambered in .22 LR. This new, low-recoiling Lite Rack pistol features an easy-to-manipulate slide that shoots comfortably regardless of hand size or strength.

Since its introduction in 2008, the LCP has set the industry standard for a lightweight, compact and reliable carry pistol. In 2016, the product line evolved with the release of the LCP II, boasting enhanced features like taller sights, a larger grip surface, crisp new trigger and last-round hold open. The all new LCP II chambered in .22 LR represents the latest innovation in compact carry pistols from Ruger.

The .22 LR LCP II incorporates Ruger’s new Lite Rack system, which allows for easy slide manipulation. The Lite Rack system includes refined slide serrations, pronounced cocking ears and a lighter recoil spring. Combined, these features ease the burden of cycling a pistol slide by hand. Pistols equipped with the Lite Rack system are ideally suited for new shooters, those who struggle with racking traditional slides and anyone looking to enjoy a day at the range. Whether used as a training tool for an existing LCP or LCP II, or as a concealed carry option, the low-recoiling Lite Rack LCP II in .22 LR allows shooters to train with and operate their pistol with confidence.

Optimized to function with high-velocity ammunition, this new pistol features a tilt-barrel, blowback semi-automatic action, which aids in feeding for reliable function. With a patent-pending floorplate assembly, the magazine offers a very compact 10+1 capacity, extends the grip for improved control and retains the LCP II’s popular last-round hold open function.

The LCP II in .22 LR features a first-ever manual safety, making this a great training option for new shooters or those who prefer a manual safety option. Positioned on the left side of the frame, the safety is oriented in a push-forward-to-fire configuration that is instinctive and unobtrusive. A magazine disconnect ensures that the gun cannot fire with the magazine removed, yet still allows the magazine to drop free.

Like the rest of the LCP II family, this American-made pistol features a short, crisp, Secure Action™ trigger with inner trigger safety; improved sights for superior accuracy; and highly-textured grip surfaces. In addition to one, 10-round magazine, this pistol also ships with a magazine loader.

I bought the best .22 lr pistol in the world. I bought a Taurus TX 22 for $150. It has two 16 round clips and i can buy extentions that hold 19 rounds.

MSRP???? That’s a bit of information that potential buyers want to know.

I have three original LCP’s, only one of which is somewhat reliable. The other two, out of the Mayoden, NC plant are jamamatics despite making one or more trips back to Ruger. I actually prefer the heavier trigger of the original. The hair trigger on the LCP II is nice while shooting but I find it disturbing for carry, presentation, or holstering. I like the manual safety on this .22 version.

Ruger; one magazine? Surely you jest. I guess we know how you expect to profit from this.

@Roy, that’s like the Advantage Arms 22lr conversion kit I bought for my Glock19, it came with 1 tenrnd mag, and they have 15 and 25rnd mags for it, but want $25. and change for the 15rnd, and $40. for the 25rnd mag, but I found a website that gets all of them from advantage, and goes through a dealer in Texas, and sells the 25rnd for $26. and change, so you save about $14. bucks or so per mag, so I bought 3. They just shipped out today. I ordered them on Christmas eve, and had the holiday delay,… Read more »
