Since Ruger was nice enough to fix all the shortcomings of the original LCP, a/k/a Elsie Pea, I decided it was time to pick up the Gen II mouse gun and give it a shot. It's my first experience with .380 ACP, so I'm certainly looking forward to paying more for ammo that does less than 9mm. All joking aside, this LCP redesign is very well done. The stippling is fantastic, giving a solid purchase on the diminutive pistola. I really love the finger extension on the lone provided mag. Sure, I can only get two fingers on the grip, but it's a solid hold thanks to the wider grip and stippling. Unlike the Gen I (excluding the Custom), this baby has actual, usable sights. They are serrated and blacked out, offering the shooter a very clean sight picture. The trigger is outstanding and is lightyears ahead of the Gen 1's gritty and excruciatingly long trigger pull. And with Gen 2 mags, this LCP II's slide locks back after the last round. Outfreakingstanding. The slide's rear and forward serrations are clean and extremely useful, it being such a small handgun. That being said, the Gen II is a smidge larger and heavier than the Gen I, but it is leaps and bounds better too. And, the extra girth and weight also help tame the original LCP's snappy recoil. I'm looking forward to breaking this little beast in and adding it to the EDC BUG role. LCP II Pros • Great ergonomics • Vastly-improved trigger • Clean sight picture, with serrated steel sights • Very useable stippling • Slide locks back after last round • Gun will fire without mag inserted • Excellent forward and rear slide serrations • Outstanding price point • Will fit in most LCP I holsters • Ruger pocket holster provided • Made in the USA LCP II Cons • One mag provided (understandable given the price point) • Crappy Ruger Cardboard Box (again, understandable given the price point) • Seven-round Ruger mags not available yet. Overall, this is a sweet pocket carry piece. Regardless if it's your primary or BUG. Range report to follow. Well done, Ruger!
