The Ruger LCP is a compact, striker fired, double action, magazine-fed, recoil-operated pistol chambered for the 380 Auto cartridge. The LCP incorporates a different “link-less” design in the barrel locking/unlocking system than earlier Ruger P-Series pistols, and features a streamlined slide, and glass reinforced nylon and aluminum subframe grip frame. The strong locked breech action of the Ruger LCP utilizes a tilting barrel design in which the barrel and slide are locked together at the moment of firing.
- Textured grip frame provides a secure and comfortable grip
- Fixed front and rear sights are integral to the slide, while the hammer is recessed within the slide
- Rugged construction with through-hardened steel slide and one-piece, high-performance, glass-filled nylon grip frame
