    New LCP

    I picked up new LCP yesterday and noticed the inside was filthy, anyone else notice the grim and dirt on the feeding ramp and firing pin area of their new LCP?

    I know there was one round fired from the factory but this thing looks used?!?!?

    Most firearms travel from the factory packed in grease and oil to protect them until they are sold. The dirt and grime is just what gets inside and gets stuck in the lubricant. A good cleaning is always a good idea when you first get one.

    Good luck.

    Some guns get test fired more than others. Probably, your example got a full mag run through it. You could look at it as extra quality control.

    I should not worry so much about it. Just clean it and lubricate it well before using it. And congrats in the new LCP!

    Do you trust your gun broker? Perhaps it was really LNIB and they "forgot" to mention it?

    Not saying it's the case, but there are a few less than respectable businesses out there.

    Yah. I know of a local gun shop where the employees are known to 'test drive' their inventory.

    Several LCPs among friends and all bought at roughly the same - month or so apart. Same condition. Clean it and shoot it. No problems.

    Best!

    Do you know the gun shop well enough to ask about it and get a truthful answer?
    If the gun functions well, I'd say that it doesn't really matter, you just want a dependable weapon.

    Congrats on the purchase.

    Hey you guys are right!

    I just got back from my dealer who allowed me to look at the two remaining unopened LCPs' and they looked identical to mine.

    I'll clean when I get home this evening then go shoot the hell out of it this weekend!!!

    Thanks for all of the stellar input, you guys rock!

    All of the new guns I've bought have had some powder residue in them from the test firing. I don't remember the LCP being any more dirty than my Glock, Kahr, Seecamp, etc. As others have mentioned, give the gun a good cleaning and lubrication before your first range trip.

    I also installed a 12lb. Wolff Spring my LCP due to all of the positive reports on the Elsiepea forum.
