Re: Part II LCP Recall Thread - Gun back? Then here's where to post
LCP Range Report ~ Post Recall
Okay gang... as promised, here is my "unscientific"
range report for LCP #370-015XX, purchased new on Mar 13, 2008. There really is not that much to report.
As I said in my post above when I got my little pocket canon back and dry fired it... "first impressions are that the trigger pull is lighter, smoother and not as long as I remember", but then that's just me.
The barrel did not come back blued and to my eyes the only obvious changes are the new style slide release and the diamond stamp. I can't tell if the barrel was reworked to address the issues some people were having with certain brands of ammo. My gun was not test fired before it was returned back to me.
The gun shot as well as it did before it's trip back to Prescott, AZ.
I used both the Ruger and Pearce finger extensions. I like the Pearce extension better because it is a little longer and felt better in my hand. It feels like a different gun with the extension. To be honest, the Ruger extension fits and looks better, but I still prefer the Pearce when shooting.
I shot 86 rounds total. Ammo used was the same as I've always shot prior to the recall with no malfunctions...
- Remington Golden Saber 102 gr BJHP (12 rounds)
- Cor-Bon DPX 80 gr HP (12rounds)
- Cor-Bon 90 gr JHP (12 rounds)
- WWB 95 gr BEB (50 rounds)
I won't go into accuracy results because it's subjective and everyone's skills vary. All I'll say is that I had no problem killing the BG on a paper target @ 7 yards.
Well, that's it and as i said above, there's really not much to report from before I sent it back. I had no malfunctions before the recall or after.
I do have a question for others that send in there early make LCP's that have the peening issue... did Ruger re-mill the area where the peening occurs? I had mine re-milled shortly after buying it last March, so I can't answer that question.
