I got my LCP today and after racking the slide i went to dry fire it. I know that's a no no but i did it anyway. It would not fire though unless i took my left hand and pulled back a little on the slide while pulling the trigger. What's up with this? Does anyone else have this problem? I do not know if it will fire with a round in the chamber and i won't be able to get to the range for a couple of days. Just looking for anwers. Thanks.

This does not sound right. I would drop a note in the box that you ship your gun in so they will look at it. It will take them longer to get it fixed they have had mine for 2 weeks today. I had problems with my frame pins moving.

Sounds like you have a similar issue that I experienced with my wifes LCP. The trigger would go all the way back and the hammer would go back about 95% of the way but not quite far enough. This happened before I had finished the first clip. After that, the trigger just went limp. Ruger said to make sure I included a note explaining the trigger issue when I sent it back for retrofit. UPS is supposed to pick up both mine and and my wifes tomorrow. Haven't had a problem with mine.

Personally,I'd be going to the shop where I purchased this gun and let them deal with the problem. Is this a post recall gun?

hey gbsbrad keep me updated on what ruger has to say because that is exactly the same problem mine is having except for the limp trigger part. the gun is pre-recall, and i would take it back but i got a really good deal since it was pre recall and i would have to deal with the recall, plus since its already got to go to ruger i figure i'll get them to fix it then

ok as an update i can now get my lcp to fire, but i have to pull the trigger all the way back and then kind of wiggle it back and forth. anyone else have this problem
I would be willing to bet you are on your way to a broken trigger...soon. Before mine broke I had to pull all the way back and then squeeze hard to make it fire. Shoot three or for mags full in a row and see what happens.

I also had the same problem with mine. Haveing to pull the slide back ever so slightly to fire. I sent it back to ruger for the recall on the 4th of Dec, and it is still there. I called and they said it should be back to me next week. They done the recall work first, and then sent it to another section to repair the other problem. Hopefully they will include a note telling what they did. Sure wish it was back, miss the little sucker. I will post again when it returns.

mine ended up working itself out after a good cleaning and a lot of dry firing. I no longer have a problem with it. I took it to the range and ran 100 rds of WWB through it with no issues. I hope yours works out for you.
