Default Ruger LCP updated

Have 200 rounds through her with no problems except for the guide rod spring which IMO is too weak for this gun causing the slide to get stuck back when holstered, as well as the spring being too loose fitting around the guide rod.

Solution:

Just placed an order for a 13lb. Spring set from Wolff Gunsprings and I am sure and or hope it will eliminate these very minor issues that the stock 9lb. spring is giving me. Ruger says its normal I don't think so. lol

It's not that big a deal I was going to order extra springs anyhow and decided with the heavier gauge ones. I hear rumors that Ruger only used the 9lb was so females would have an easier time racking the slide.?. Sounds kinda sexist to me lol

I also added a BT premium guide rid for this spring set

As with any other recoil spring, going too heavy can create other problems.

Well the LCP already has problems that are minor that I want fixed. The slide sticking back and the scoring on the guide rod and excessive peening causing the stock spring to overcome it.


Ruger says its normal and that's fine but the Wolff spring kit and BT guide rod eliminate these minor issues without damaging the frame in fact they help with recoil and cycling. The cost was $13 for the spring and the new rod was $20 dollars.

I hear Ruger will send out new springs and guide rods for nothing but I just want a guide rod that will last longer and made with better material as well as a stronger spring.


Cheers


This guy is having the same problem as me and Ruger says its normal

The wolff spring corrects this on all LCP's

My LCP has performed well after the first couple boxes of rounds, but I noticed the spring was beginning to overlap the blunt end of the guide rod while cleaning it? Is this what you are talking about? Ruger should fix that issue if it's defective.
