    Now that there is a forum just for the lcp, How many others had feeding problems with their new ruger? It would jamb on the final bullet everytime. After contacting Ruger, and a new barrel later its fine. Just wondering??
    Better to have it and not need it, Than to need it and not have it!

    No jams for me. One FTF in a little over 200 rounds. I didn't allow the trigger to "reset" fully. Winchster FN/FMJ, Rem FMJ, Hornady XTP. all feed fine.

    I've tried, but have not been able to get it to fail in any way yet.

    Jams at least once on every mag.............. with five different brands/type of ammo........... Ruger replaced the barrel, same problem, they have now requested that I send them the complete pistol.

    I'll let you know how it turns out. Right now I'm thinking it may simply be the proverbial "lemon", particularly with all the reports of "no problems" whatsoever.........

    I had a kind of nasty FTF during the 50 rounds through my LCP so far. The cartridge jammed tight about halfway into the chamber. Couldn't get the slide to move forward or back. Finally got the slide to go back a little, released it, and the round fed. I was shooting WWB.

    Contacted Ruger about it and they said to lube the frame rails (which I'd already done) and the rear of the extractor, where the extractor plunger is.

    Now I need to go back to the range and try it again.

    Yep, had the same problem with the same fix. New barrel=problem solved

    Manufacturing any mechanical product like the LCP at the price point they choose will involve tradeoffs in process and quality control. In general, I think they have chosen wisely given the huge quantity delivered vs. the reported difficulties in delivered product. If you are unlucky enough to have received a unit where the accumulation of tolerances cause it to be unreliable, I think you owe it to yourself to send it back to Ruger for rework. It was designed and manufactured to be reliable. Unless you are a gunsmith or just want it as a toy, let them bring it to the reliability required for EDC that you deserve.

    I initially had a few feeding problems with a box of Magtech FMJ. I used some Flitz and a Q-Tip on the feed ramp and roof of the chamber and they diminished considerably. Next I made a concious effort to grip the LCP VERY firmly and the FTF's disappeared completely. I did not have to do this with Federal or R-P FMJ's but the Magtechs are the cheapest ammo around here so I wanted them to shoot reliably.

    Sounds like the fluff and buff thing might be what we all need to do just to be sure things work!
