I'm happy with my P3AT. The LCP wasn't available at the time I was buying.

Update-I sent my LCP back for recall and got it back exactly 7 calendar days later. It came complete with the nice ball cap & the extra magazine. It functions exactly the same, and when field stripped, can tell no difference. Just thought I would let yall know that when you send them back for recall, Ruger pays for shipping/insurance both ways, and their customer service is excellent-same as I expect from Ruger.

I think I'll give the ball cap to my buddy since I don't want to advertise having a pocket rocket, as then the "bad guys" would then KNOW I'm carrying if they know what a Ruger or LCP is.

The first time I fired my LCP, I had a few malfunctions out of 3 or 4 magazines. The second time (and so far the last) I fired seven magazines through it without a malfunction. And the seventh magazine was a mixture of brands and bullet types that a friend gave to me after he traded off a .380 he had. One of those rounds was almost a squib. In fact the sound and recoil was so much less than any of the others, that I stopped shooting, unloaded the gun and checked the barrel for a stuck bullet. There was none so I put the magazing back in and finished it off.

Can anyone tell me how to tell if my gun has been recalled?

Win73-if you have a serial # prefix of "370-" it is subject to recall. You can tell if it's already been recalled if it has a diamond shaped stamp on frame looking down on it right behind hammer, inside hammer relief.

Default Lcp

I got one of the first LCP's when they came out. I put several hundred rounds down range, all makes no problems. Recall: out the door and back 10 days.

Another couple of hundred rounds-all makes, no malfunctions. Ruger is a honorable, up front American company, great to deal with.

Bear, two thumbs up on the Ruger LCP. I sold a LCP to a law enforcement officer last week and he brought it to the range this morning. At 21 feet he had seven in the head of a Center Fire Defender target. The jacketed ammo shot fine, although, he experienced some problems with hollow point ammunition. Now for the best part, he let me rattle off a clip and it fired flawless. I think I'm filling out the forms tomorrow.

Glad to hear you like it! Let us know when you get 1 and give us a range report.

I just want to add that using a small white light will help you find that "diamond shaped stamp". It is hard to see...or at least I had trouble seeing it.

If your LCP has a prefix of "371" the problem has been fixed by the mfg. before the dealer received it. I remember when my local dealer had 150 of these guns and sold them in 3 days. The price at the time was $329. When I called about one they had two left. By the time I got to the dealer they were gone. Since then I've seen them at dealers, gun shows, etc. for $499.
I expect the price to go up again.

When I had a second chance to buy the LCP, I opted for the Kahr P.380, comparing the two side-by-side the Kahr felt better in my hand and I prefered the barrel sights of the Kahr over Ruger. Plus I'm more familiar with the break-down of Kahr's P series handguns.

What I like the most of these small framed pistols is that when you slide them in your pocket they disappear totally.
