    Ruger LCP Take-Down & Re-Assembly Tip

    I imagine most of you LCP owners have figured this out already, but just in case, I thought I'd post this neat trick.

    The manual says to remove the take-down pin from the frame. I found that I can pull the pin out just far enough to allow the slide to come off the frame, while leaving the pin still in the frame. It will stay in place under pressure of its retaining spring.

    Then when the slide is re-installed, simply push the pin straight back in. No more trying to find the correct angle to re-install the take-down pin.

    Makes things easier, I think.


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    Have you shot it enough to decide if it is a keeper?

    Thanks for the tip, didn't know you could do that.

    I have 775 rounds through my LCP and except for a few Magtech rounds that wouldn't feed properly due to crimping on the case of the rounds it's been flawless.

    Thanks for the hint.

    My LCP is EDC as BUG. I wonder if I could work in any more acronyms in one sentence?

    BTW, Crimson Trace is about to release a laser for this model. http://www.gunblast.com/CrimsonTrace-LCP.htm

    My LCP is a keeper.
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    That's a great tip. I will try it next cleaning cycle. I've had absolutely no problems with mine at all, with many hundreds through already.
