I just read this on another forum. Ruger has issued a recall on some LCPs. It is for the same reason they had a recall on the SR9.

Strange, same from the SR9 and P345..........

Hey......... "ANY" gun should be be thought that it could "FIRE" if dropped......... heck don't drop your gun.......... that's what I say.......... it's ridiculous that gun manufacturers should have to go to such extremes........... I can understand that "accidents" happen.... and that a gun owner could "accidentally" drop his gun..... well YEAH..... if you drop it, it could "ACCIDENTALLY" fire.....

Sorry....... I'm not with it.

I speculated that they'd have to recall the LCP - just figured it was a possibility and (I feel bad about this) Ruger got a bad rep when they had to recall the SR9. I am sure Ruger will fix the issue.

Dammit. I just got mine two weeks ago. The extra mag and extension will be nice though. Oh well.

A recall on the ultimate pocket pistol? Impossible. It's not like it's a piece of crap Kel-tec. I think it's just a way to give everyone a free mag, without admitting they forgot to put it in the box.

From Ruger's Site
Going forward, new pistols will be marked with the serial number prefix “371” (serial number 371-xxxxx). Pistols with the “371” prefix are not affected.

Check your serial number...

I,m waiting on the picture to see if mine has the "diamond". I got mine back from Ruger (new barrel and extractor) about 2 months ago. Even though the new mag w/ extension would be nice, I am hoping mine doesn't need to go back. I love the gun, but 2 trips back will be a pain.

My pocket pistol continues to perform like a champ:

It rides in a Mikah pocket holster and I sometimes forget that I have it on me. To date I have had zero failures to feed, fire, or eject.

Couldn't afford one of those with all of the other damn projects on my plate. :(

Good point, I was considering leaving the 642 at home in favor of an LCP, but until Ruger gets the bugs worked out, I'm sticking with ol faithful.

I remember hearing about this recall a couple of weeks ago. The recall doesn't necessarily bother me but the fact that Ruger absolutely denied any recall when I called kind of upsets me. I love my Rugers but would expect more integrity from the company. I can't believe they didn't know when I heard it on a forum online.:?

Well here is my concern.

My LCP falls within the recall serial numbers. However it has performed flawlessly and despite a lot of peoples dislike for the trigger pull I for 1 do not mind it and really enjoy shooting the thing. So here is my dilemma. Do I send it back and have them mess around with something that just seems to work and get a free mag out of it. Or do I do nothing and keep what I got. I guess according to their website the will also perform "other" improvements that they have put out on newer models. This is probably the peening issues that some early models have seen (which mine has but fires fine). I just don't know if I want them to mess with something that is working unless the benefits are better than what I got.

i love how all recalls make it sound like they are doing you a HUGE favor by fixing their mistake. odds are the only time a company issues a recall is when the cost of potential law suits is more then it would cost to replace it.

Do nothing. If it works for you and yu're happy with its' performance, there's no reason to send it back. I'm sure that not every pistol that is on the recall list is defective. They have no way of knowing exactly which ones are affected, so they do a a wide range perimeter recall to cover themselves and keep people happy. At least they step up to the place unlike some other companies out there.
