Have of you guys or gals picked up the Ruger LCP Max? If so, what are your thoughts on it? You had any issues with it?

I shot one at the local range and liked it. Fired 200 rounds with no issues at all.

I used to own the standard LCP. The Max isn’t much bigger at all but feels better in the hand with the thicker grip. The sights are much nicer too. If I get another .380, it will likely be that one.

I sold my lcp2 after buying the max. The sights alone are worth it let alone the 10/12rd mags. Great little pistol. Until Hogue comes out with a beavertail Handall, model for the p365 works, just have to trim a little around the mag well.

I have one but I'm underwhelmed with how it shoots. Maybe it's because my LCP 2 is a tackdriver by comparison (which is hard to believe).

I want to run another couple hundred through it before I consider it a carry gun. Function has been 100% and yes the sights are a great improvement.

Shot one of my buddies. I don't care for the round, but this thing did well.
He liked it so much he bought another one, so I guess there's that.

I bought one.

My Glock 42 has been replaced.

The LCP max is a damn good gun. Good sights, really shootable with the wider grip and better sights.

Shot the guy, took his LCP Max, and forced him to buy a replacement.

With friends like that...

I'm seriously thinking about selling one of my .380s and buying an LCP Max.

I didn't get it at first. I'm kind of slow...

I am thinking about the Max to replace my Nano and 442. Capacity vs. caliber, I think I like capacity. Of course I will not immediately sell either one until I decide if I like the Max, and by that time I will probably end up keeping them all - just because.

I have one,had it a couple of months. There is another thread on this pistol.

I installed a Hogue beavertail grip from a Walther PPS.

Yesterday, I sent the parts off to be coated with Ion Bond.
Also installed a Galloway Precision trigger to eliminate trigger sting.




Love the pistol, but finding ammo is impossible.

Do you find the LCP Max to be a better shooter than the Glock 42?

I find the Glock 42 to be pretty easy to shoot.

I have no experience with the Ruger LCP other than the original version which I found challenging.

I realize there have been a few fairly major updates since that original model.

The Glock 42 is a legendary small carry .380 pistol that shoots so darn well. No, the LCP Max is not a better shooter than the G42. The G42 is the better gun, the better shooter, and the higher quality gun.

The LCP Max does a good job for what it is. It has a shorter barrel so worse ballistics, but it does have 11/13 rounds on board, compared to 7 with the G42.

The LCP Max has a fatter grip than the previous LCP, so it is easier to grip and shoot rapidly. I was doing triple taps at the range with the LCP Max and it is a very shootable gun. Triple taps are how I train as that is likely how I would deploy the gun in real life... and triple taps are quick and back on target and accurate.

I have 200 plus rounds down range in the LCP Max and it has been 100% reliable. I have probably 1500 rounds down range in the G42, and it has been reliable as well. I hope the LCP Max stay reliable, as I really like this gun.

Edit 9/16- 50 more FMJ and 10 HST rounds down range this morning, no issues, runs great. Sweet shooter.

Thanks for the response bubbatime. Good info and analysis.
