I have a LCP in 22lr, and have put about 350 rounds thru it. IT's a nice shooting gun, takes MM, Blazer, Armscor, Feds with no issues. No light strikes, just a few bad rounds that wouldn't fire. It's not as accurate as my SR22, but accurate enough for a fun plinker. Glad I got it. So far, painted the front sight red, Hogue slip on grip, and a Houston IWB holster and a Sticky pocket holster.
I don’t own one but I shot one at the range yesterday, and I can attest to the fun factor. I give it two thumbs up.
I bought one 4 days ago and nothing but problems at the range. This is my third LCP, had the original, two different LCP IIs and now this .22 version.
I purchased this after watching all the glowing Youtube reports on it, and the fact that I had Zero problems with the previous LCPs I had.
I took the pistol home cleaned it and took my Crimson Trace Laser off my .380 model and put it on this one. Then I purchased three boxes of the most reliably touted .22 ammo out there to see which one was best for this pistol. The ammo was all CCI, the Stinger, Velocitor, and the Segmented HP.
Good news at the range was the laser sight was dead on without any adjustments.
Bad News was of all 150 rounds I fired, there was less than 15 that didn't have a failure to feed after shot was fired.
This wasn't the magazine, becasue I bought a second one when I purchased the gun.
All failure to feeds was caused by the rounds hanging up on the feed ramp.
Took the pistol home, took off the laser and put it back on my ultra reliable .380 LCP, and am now pondering my next move
Oh boy. That's the worst. Standard advice -send it back.
Yours is the first report of a Failure to Feed problem with the LCP II .22LR that I've read.
(I have heard of some Light Strikes with certain ammo)
Seems that you got a lemon. As pennsy advised, send it to Ruger. Their customer service is second to none. They'll make it right for you.
(Or if you're like me and hate to send guns back, you might try polishing the feed ramp. And/Or try a different brand of ammo)
Please let us know how it turns out.
Chazman1946, Good advice here from the members.
*Sorry to hear your issues so far with the new LCP II 22LR. I try to break in my rimfires with the following and have had good luck. For myself I stay away from the Stinger and Velocitor's until I get good results after testing out firearm and for me with this short barrel 22LR I may limit those. I also lightly polish the feed ramp. Ruger will get you fixed up and they are great to work with. The best IMHO. See post #19 and with a NEW Ruger get them involved.
