    Ruger LCP question?

    I just purchased a Ruger LCP. I got it home and cleaned it real good. Then I noticed that the firing pin is constantly visible. It protruded outward. I was just curious if this is normal because no other gun I own does this.

    If you push it back into it's channel, does it spring back out..?

    It would not go back into the chamber but I took it back to the dealer and they fixed it. A small piece of something was behind the pin that was keeping it from moving correctly. They took out the pin, cleaned it out, and lubed. Now I just got to find time to test it out some.

    I hope your new weapon is as reliable as mine has been. I haven't had it long but it has eaten everything I have fed it. I understand that the LCP had it's problems early on but they seem to have worked them out.

    +1 to Franco. No problems here. The LCP has been 100% reliable for me. My wife and I both have one.

    Congrats on the LCP. You might ask soon about the slide not locking back after the last shot, this is normal, that's the design.

    Yikes!!! It's a good thing you noticed that...you might have had a full auto slam fire on your hands.

    That was sure interesting.

    My wife has the LCP and has had no problems with it at all. Good little pistol for it's intended purpose.

    Good reminder to always check your breech face before loading the weapon. If the firing pin is protruding...yikes!
