The Ruger LCP II is the Best-In-Class Lightweight Compact Pistol. At just 5.17″ long and 3.71″ tall, the LCP II is designed to fit a variety of holsters and provide concealed carry options. It has a short, crisp trigger pull with a single action feel. The textured grip frame provides a secure and comfortable grip and the larger grip frame surface provides better distribution of recoil forces. The fixed front and rear sights are integral to the slide, while the hammer is recessed within the slide. Safety features include bladed trigger safety; neutrally balanced sear with significant engagement and strong spring tension; and hammer catch to help prevent the hammer from contacting the firing pin unless the trigger is pulled. Includes a finger grip extension floorplate that can be added to the magazine for comfort and grip, a pocket holster and one 6-round magazine.

The Ruger LCP (Lightweight Compact Pistol) is a subcompact, .380 ACP pocket pistol announced by Sturm, Ruger at the 2008
Weighing just 9.4 oz (266.5 g) this is Ruger’s first entry into the field of tiny, ultra-light defensive pistols.LCP stands for “Lightweight Compact Pistol” and was designed in direct response to customer requests for a compact firearm for use by police as a back-up, and as a defensive handgun for civilian concealed carry needs.
The pistol has a glass-filled nylon frame, a two-finger grip, and a through-hardened blued steel slide. It is similar in appearance to the Kel-Tec P-3AT which weighs 8.3 oz. and uses a similar tension spring for the lightweight hammer, identical locked breech mechanism, and similar takedown method. The main differences are the Glock style extractor and the incorporation of an external slide stop. It is possible to tell if there is a round chambered by looking at the “view hole” next to the extractor.
In 2013, a seven-round extended magazine was released for the LCP
Announced October 6, 2016with an MSRP of $349 the slightly larger LCP II features updates all around, now locking the slide back when empty and includes a trigger safety. The LCP II is compatible with the original 6 round LCP magazine but not the extended 7 round magazine, however they will not lock the slide back as the original LCP lacked the feature.
