Today Ruger is proud to introduce the LCP®
II chambered in .22 LR. This new, low-recoiling Lite Rack™ pistol
features an easy-to-manipulate slide that shoots comfortably regardless
of hand size or strength.
.22 LR LCP II incorporates Ruger’s new Lite Rack system, which allows
for easy slide manipulation. The Lite Rack system includes refined slide
serrations, pronounced cocking ears
and a lighter recoil spring. Combined, these features ease the burden
of cycling a pistol slide by hand. Pistols equipped with the Lite Rack
system are ideally suited for new shooters, those who struggle with
racking traditional slides and anyone looking to
enjoy a day at the range. Whether used as a training tool for an
existing LCP or LCP II or as a concealed carry option, the low-recoiling
Lite Rack LCP II in .22 LR allows shooters to operate, train with and
use their pistol with confidence.
to function with high-velocity ammunition, this new pistol features a
tilt-barrel, blowback semi-automatic action, which aids in feeding for
reliable function. With a patent-pending
floorplate assembly, the magazine offers a very compact 10 1 capacity,
extends the grip for improved control and retains the LCP II’s popular
last-round hold open function.
LCP II in .22 LR features a first-ever manual safety, making this a
great training option for new shooters or those who prefer a manual
safety option. Positioned on the left side
of the frame, the safety is oriented in a push-forward-to-fire
configuration that is instinctive and unobtrusive. A magazine disconnect
ensures that the gun cannot fire with the magazine removed, yet still
allows the magazine to drop free. In addition to one,
10-round magazine, this pistol also ships with a magazine loader.
