With an overall length of 5.16 inches (131 mm) and weighing only 9.4 oz (270 g). The LCP, which stands for “Lightweight Compact Pistol”, was designed in direct response to customer requests for a compact firearm for use by police as a back-up, and a defensive handgun for civilian concealed carry needs. The pistol has a glass-filled nylon frame, a two-finger grip, and a through-hardened blued steel slide. It’s kind of perfect for concealed carry and self-defense.
It is similar in appearance to the Kel-Tec P-3AT, which weighs 8.3 ounces (240 g), and features a similar tension spring for the lightweight hammer, an identical locked breech mechanism, and a similar takedown method. The lightweight, compact design of the Ruger® LCP® Semi-Auto Pistol make it an ideal concealed carry gun, that’s comfortable to carry all day, and quick to deploy. The LCP utilizes a double-action only, hammer-fired mechanism, with the hammer recessed into the rear of the slide to prevent snagging. The double-action only firing mode makes it simple to use in stressed situations—no levers or switches to remember—just point and shoot.
The Ruger LCP Semi-Auto Pistol has fixed sight features black, high-performance, glass-filled nylon grips for a secure grasp. It consists of a Fixed front and Rear sights integral to the slide, while the hammer is recessed within the slide. The through-hardened alloy steel slide and alloy steel barrel have blued finishes for durability and style.
