Ruger LCP Evolves

I've owned and carried a Ruger LCP for about two years now and couldn't be happier with it... Well, to be honest I wish it had larger; more "usable" sights and a "better" trigger. I've grown accustom to these two aspects; so much in fact that when I recently handled a 'new' LCP I was blown-away and traded-in my two year old for a brand new model.

Notice the difference in hammer position.
Ruger has addressed the two loudest objections to their pocket wonder. The trigger is still heavy but with a distinct decrease in pull distance. The sights are now larger and can be indexed off of more readily than the original design.

If you have not had the chance to handle the new and improved LCP I suggest you do so. With just two simple improvements they've made a very attractive pocket gun even better. I have not seen any announcement of these changes; so it appears to be a running change to the model.

  1. Will it still fit the Fobus KTP CT & DeSantis quick snap holsters?

  2. Is this new version the one listed on the Ruger website? If not does anyone know the specific model #?

  3. @Dan it continues compatibility with all LCP holsters.

    There doesn't seem to be a change in the model number. It would appear to be a running change; so going forward all new LCP's will be configured as such.

    Running changes are common in the industry. Smith & Wesson is currently planning a running change to their M&P triggers.

  4. I've heard the Gen2's don't have a dash in the serial number.

    All I know for sure is that mine is a Gen1 and it does have a dash.
