Greetings all, for those who have them, how are the LCP II's holding up?

Good! I bought it when the II first came out. I have more than 1K Rnd’s and stopped counting. Great pocket 380. Holding up well with a Hogue rubber handall.

I have a ‘Gen 1’ LCP, no problems. To me they’re more of a test then carry gun, as opposed to higher round use at the range.

For higher count range shooting, I’ll use a beefier gun.

LCP II, had one and eventually sold it. IMO, I found the Kahr P-380 is a bit smaller and more accurate.

I just recently bought one to try. Don’t like it, trigger is pretty light, especially for pocket carry. I did have a LCP Custom, the one with the red trigger. It was nice, crazy accurate, reliable, I may try to find another.

Currently, I have a Beretta PICO, I think it is recent like 3rd gen production. Nice, superthin, accurate. My EDC when something else is too big. Tiny thin little gun.

I bought one a few months back and had to send it back to Ruger twice for issues. I had failures to eject/feed the first time and then it wouldn't accept a magazine unless I was depressing the magazine release button. After I got it back from Ruger, I put about a hundred rounds through it without problem. Its quite accurate for such a small pistol (due to the fact it has real sights), the recoil isn't terrible and it feeds my favorite .380 ammo (Lehigh Defense "Extreme Penetrators") without a hickup. I definitely like the light trigger and since the indicated issues were obvious from the start, I trust that its "Good to Go", now that they've been handled.

I too have one of the "original" LCPs, 1000+ rounds and it still works! I carry it (right front pocket) a lot and shoot maybe two mags through it every couple months, it won't break! Once it breaks, I have two more Is in the safe ready to go. Both were around $200, maybe less.

I do like the slide lock back feature of the II, but one of those will wait until all my Is break.

I have a Gen 1 as well.
Sent it back for the recall and all that years ago.
I carry it more than any firearm I own in a High Noon Pocket Grabber or custom OWB holster.
Carry a spare mag in Meco mag holder in my weak side pocket.

It is just too easy to carry.
Never a failure using many types of ammo.

Polished the barrel and sent the slide and parts to CCR for then Ceraplate, again years ago.





It now wears a Pachmayr TACTICAL GRIP GLOVE.





I own the Kahr CW380 as well, but it sits in the safe.
Took 200 rds to make it reliable.
I like the Kahr trigger better, but I still carry the LCP.
I know it won't fail when I need it, and again, it is just to easy to carry.

Do you mind expanding on this as mine does that too? I wondered if it was set up that way or if that was a problem. I've owned mine for about 8 months and it shoots well.

I have a original LCP but I'd like to have a II. Mine is great and so easy to carry but it doesn't like steel cased ammo. Eats everything else, though.

I am going to get one of those toolless take down pins, stainless guide rod and Wolf 13lbs recoil springs.

I meant to add: a friend of mine carries his LCP II everyday and just loves it! He’s never had any issues with it.

I replaced my LCP II with a Springfield Armory 911 .380 when it came out last year. The LCP lives in my safe now.

It held up fine and has over 1k basically problem-free rounds through it but I just couldn’t get over accidentally hitting the mag release when firing. If I didn’t hold it the right way when shooting I’d hit the release and I just can’t trust that. It got better when I put the sand paper talon grips on it, though.
