Finally. A pocket 22!

Post by Mohavesam » Fri Jan 03, 2020 8:00 am

Handled a LCPII yesterday in 22lr. Initial price $305+taxes.
Bought it of course. I left it behind, made it to the truck, and went back in cash in hand. I usually shun first offerings, in case the bugs haven't been "worked out". I've waited too long, besides, Ive paid more for less. The only downside so far is the cast-in sights, but we'll see if its a practical negative. And it comes with only ONE MAGAZINE! Come on Ruger. Customer focus!!

I asked Mr Fifer and others for a 22 lcp since 2014. But I'm sure they've had a drawing or two before then, as every time I brought it up I got a grin and silence... 8-)
Its 11 ounces dry, mag holds 10 rounds, and should be as reliable as any lcpII.

If you've ever had a Beretta 21, colt vest pocket, AMT, or similar true pocket 22, check out this Ruger!

Another downside I didn't mention. It is a Mayodan product.
Sad they decided to make it there, instead of the experienced employees who made the LCP and LCPII so successful (Prescott).
Sad indeed. I drew blood from one of two very sharp burrs INSIDE the trigger guard.
Shoddy work. Damn. Back it goes.
Sure I could "finish" the pistol myself (if that were the only flaw encountered) but why? I'm supposed to be the customer, not an employee!

They’ve hit the shelves already ????

Thought it was later this month that they’d be available.

Is there that much difference in quality between the two different plants (mayodan & Prescott)

Yes, at least four LGS shops near me have them. Maybe not unlimited quantities yet, but for sale. Best retail I've found to date is $288.89, 309.xx being the highest. YMMV

Essentially there are only a very few degreed 'smiths at the Mayodan facility.
Prescott has a great gunsmithing school at Yavapai College and NAU (Flagstaff). And Arizona is the best place to design, manufacture, and own/use firearms in the USA. 8-) 8-) 8-) Dozens if not hundreds of graduates have been employed at Prescott, and some of the best quality in the company's history has been documented from that faclity.
