    Ruger LC9 or LC380 Problems fixed?

    I have been doing some research for trying to come up with a budget friendly gun for my wife. We have been going to different stores and handling a lot of different guns to see what fit her hands, prices etc. Tomorrow she is going to go to the range a fire some to see how they feel when firing. One of the guns on "the list" that fits the budget and my wifes hand include the Ruger LC9, or LC380. The problem in the research is that the trigger has had a history of malfunctioning and failing to reset. However, these reports seem to be from about a year or so ago. Does anyone know if Ruger has fixed this issue?

    There are a lot of reviews on the LC's but I am not finding anything current, has anyone had any recent experience or are is anyone aware if this issue was fixed?

    Own 2 LC9's had two LCP's gave one to my daughter. None of the weapons have ever had a single issue. doubt they ever will.
    Kind of like if you read the internet every Harley blows up a 10 K and needs rebuilding every 5k.
    Ruger has been around a long time Depending on how your read the numbers they sell far more weapons than many others combined . They would not still be here if they did not sell a great product.
    Some claim the JCP is now the top selling of all time.

    I carry the LC9 every day and haven't had any of the problems you've been reading about. It definitely has earned my confidence. I'd say if she likes it, then go for it. Great little gun in my opinion.

    Doubt seriously if there are any trigger issues with either gun. There are none to be found to purchase.

    ?? I just handled both the LC9 and the LC380. We went shopping/researching today, and found them at several different gun stores. You may not have any there, but we do here! Along with ammo, AR's.. etc. Things are starting to hit the shelves here again, and we were not hit as hard as some other areas are.

    My wife just decided on the LC9 as her carry weapon. I tried to talk her into a S&W Shield but she liked the Ruger better. It seems fairly well built. We plan to shoot it some Monday and next weekend.

    Ruger LC9 or LC380 Problems fixed?

    Never have seen a problem with the trigger failing to reset but it does have a long trigger pull that takes some getting used to. Pretty accurate for a little gun though.

    Tundra5.7, how did it go at the range? I've shot a few thousand rounds through my LC9...but I must say that it took me 300-400 rounds to really get familiar with, and feel comfortable with, that long trigger pull. Now, it is awesome! And, I've tried 8-9 different types of ammo through it...not one failure of any kind in several thousand rounds. In fact, I've been so impressed that I've just bought my wife an LC380. She's been shooting a Bersa Thunder 380, but we've found several different types of ammo that the Bersa does not like. So, as impressed I've been with the LC9, I know the LC380 will be great for the wife. Should be in next week, and we'll try it out and see.

    While I still had the stock trigger group in my LC9 I never had any issues with it. For an extra $40 or so you can install a Galloway trigger kit that decreases the length of pull by half. I have one in mine, and have put hundreds of rounds through it without issue since I upgraded.

    Horrible trigger. Magazine disconnect 'safety' is a deal breaker. Long trigger pull makes accuracy impossible. Good luck.

    Great job there bashing the LC9 instead of answering the OP's question.

    Horrible trigger? Yes. Still, excellent accuracy is possible with the stock trigger. Most of us are taught to shoot a pistol by using the first pad of the trigger finger on the trigger. With a small framed pistol like the LC9, use either the second pad or either of the two finger joint creases depending on how long your finger is. Once I started pulling the LC9 trigger with the second pad (by the time the trigger broke I was pulling with the second crease) I was able to shoot one ragged hole groups with my LC9. Installing a Galloway trigger kit is cheap and is a huge improvement.

    Magazine disconnect safety a deal-breaker? for you maybe, but I and others aren't bothered by it. I wonder how many lives have been saved by this feature? Certainly no lives have been lost because of it.

    Inaccurate? I don't think so!
