No, I still get 2-3 FTF at the beginning of each mag.

I also added the Hogue rubber Handall, which helps me to maintain a firm grip on this little guy, which is also crucial for correct functioning.

Well, I guess that maybe a trip back to Ruger is called for.

I agree. Mine has been super reliable with everything from day one.

Unfortunately, I agree. I will call them Monday. I really hope they don’t give me any grief. I know the times I’ve had to call glock it’s a crap shoot. Sometimes they’ll send me a mailing slip if I ask for it sometimes they won’t. I just want my little gun to work reliably.

I wonder if it’s gonna matter if I’m the original owner and how old it is.

IME, of there's a problem with a Ruger firearm, Ruger will fix it--no questions asked. However, I would not be surprised if they charge you if they determine you've been mucking with it.

My Mk. I was nearly impossible to separate barrel/receiver from frame. Then a gunsmith bitched a trigger job. (He'd warned me auto-loaders weren't his thing.) I sent it to Ruger and they fixed it. I don't recall them charging me. If they did, it was so little it wasn't noteworthy.

They were great on several of my pistols. NO charge for shipping, or repair. Top notch.

They don't ask the first question at all. They will ask you for the serial number as a matter of course. This would only matter (single unbroken number vs. prefixed with a hyphen) to determine which "generation" it is. I had one that somehow managed to break a piece of the frame off. They gave me a whole new gun, the only cost being the FFL transfer.

I am wondering if you are using S & B or WOLF ammo. The other day I took some S&B ammo to the range and it made my always reliable Bersa Thunder 380 choke and fail to feed. The little LCP is very reliable but needs decent quality ammo. It is common to experiment to find out what works in your pistol.

No, I’m not using any of that ammo.

I have used monarch (academy’s brand) steel but everything else is brass 95 gr

Then it sounds like the magazine is not getting “fully” inserted.
I have a Ruger Mark II, where I had installed a new grip. The magazines would insert and lock-in place, however the grip was preventing the magazine from being fully inserted.

The magazine was ~1/16” from full insertion and causing the same problems you are describing.

I took a Dremel to the grip where it was touching the magazine, and now it works fine.

Is there anything preventing “full” insertion of the magazine?

I have confidence that Ruger will take care of any and all problems with your gun.

Thank you. After speaking to the rep. I could tell that she did care and didn't just brush me off. We were getting the RMA info and I added that when I load the mag in the gun and the slide doesn't go forward, that it damages the rounds, she definitely acted like that changed something. I couldn't be happier with how knowledgeable and quick she was with everything.

I own a first generation LCP and an LCP2. The earlier model has worked with virtually everything I've shot through it. The LCP2 had a problem with failures to feed and eject, that was corrected after I contacted Ruger and shipped it back for repair. Unfortunately, upon receipt, the little pistol's magazine couldn't be inserted fully unless I held down the magazine release button. I sent it back a second time and now everything works fine.

Note that both of these issues were immediately recognizable upon testing. These weren't problems that arose over time. Now that its working correctly, I prefer the LCP2 due to its enhanced trigger system and easily viewable sights.

That really stinks that you had to send it back twice, although they ultimately fixed it. Do you know what they fixed the times you sent it back?

I just spoke to Ruger and they have already checked and fixed my pistol. They said they replaced the slide assembly and barrel, tested lawman 95gr with 24 rounds with no malfunctions.
That was super fast! I was only calling to see if they would notify me when they were shipping it back and would provide a tracking number.

What great service!

I don't know what exactly the "fixes" were, only that Ruger remedied the issues promptly and I got the pistol back within a week or so after shipping it to them for repairs.

I bought an LCP when they first came out (Sep 08) and it too would not go into battery. It went back to Ruger and still did not work. After a second trip to Ruger, in Feb 09 they sent me a new gun which is still ticking after 1000+ rounds.

I have two LCP Is in the safe for when the original breaks but it still works. I carry it often and fire the chambered round (XTP) plus two or three mags of FMJ every couple months.
