Had LCP for a couple of years. I usually have it an ankle holster. Run a couple of mags every few months. I use Hornady FTX 90 gr. my question and some help from the experts out there. Why this week fail to extract and stove pipes every few rounds? Now I don't trust it. So, any suggestions as to why and any correction ideas? Thanks

Sometimes a faulty magazine can cause this. If you haven't already then try another mag and see if same thing happens. Also I have had this happen if the mag is not fully locked in place.

Most likely a Mag issue, or mag not locked all the way into place. Lcp mag can trick you some times. Best of luck!

Sounds like a good place to start. I have four mags and will try them all. Hopefully I can get to the range this week. Thanks

Update went to the range today. Discovered the extractor has the corner chipped or worn. Either way appears I need to replace. This should fix my problem.

Another thing that can cause this is inserting the recoil spring in backwards. I had the same issue. Took the LCP apart and there it was. This is actually very easy to do with the LCP. Just a heads up for all don't be in a hurry when you're reassembling your LCP.

Thanks for info. Sent it to Ruger. They sent me a NEW LCP. it does not extract the shell either. Not the first round. When gun returns or I get another LCP, I will post.

Range report. New gun worked perfect. No issues Easy gun to shoot. Smooth trigger pull. Nice sights but this one has laser. Easy to keep on target. I love it. It will be my back-up somewhere. Ankle or pocket or Inside waist.

I had that exact problem! Couldn't figure why it kept jamming on me. I finally went over it meticulously and found the tiniest corner chip on the extractor lower corner. Replaced the extractor (I think it was $2 ?) and it is back to being flawless.
