    MagGuts sent an EMail response to me today in answer to a question I asked earlier this week. Customer Service stated they plan to produce the LCP2(their terminology, not mine) magazine conversion--(no estimated date). Since the LCP and LCP II magazines are somewhat interchangeable........want to guess how long?!!

    I thought they already made a magazine conversion for the LCP2.

    Oh, wait a minute . . . ;-)

    PS: This reminds me of a popular blade steel that's used in the manufacture of high-end knives. It's called 154CM. The company that manufactures it (Crucible Industries) produced an improved powdered version of 154-CM and called it CPM-154. The difference between 154CM and CPM-154 is neither trivial nor inexpensive. Want to take a guess at the confusion that naming convention caused? To this day, some knife makers will say they've made a knife out of CPM-154CM when, of course, that blade steel doesn't even exist. And unless a buyer knows enough to ask, they have no idea which alloy is being used in the knife's manufacture.

    I was looking for a second mag for my LCP II, the gun shop only has the extended LCP mag, I read & heard that the LCP mag will work, will not lock back but the extended LCP mag will not work in the LCP II, WHY ?

    Not to me. But apparently that's the way it is. Might be worth calling Ruger CS and asking them why it won't work.

    I may have found the answer, given that it is a Utube gunsmith but it does sound logical. I won't buy one to try it but it is good to think it could be something that simple. A long vid but the answer is early on.

    Pennsy---the point of the MagGuts conversion is that it is a spring and follower that inserts into the original magazine, thus retaining the size of the original. Frankly, am not interested in any mod that decreases the concealability of the original II.
