Why? Because it’s a great little pocket gun and anything that can make it better is appreciated. Weird thing, though… I had an LCP II that I loved and it somehow turned into an LCP Max. LOL

It is easy to carry regardless of clothing. Durable, reliable and enough rounds to address most challenges. Yup, happy to have one.

I fondled a MAX. It is a vast improvement!
I like what they did with sights and capacity. But I own 4 of these so must stay satisfied for now.

Working on breaking in the STICKY holster for the armalaser..

Yeah, just having the one made the conversion a little easier.

Yep, pretty amazing just how much one can sink into an upgraded firearm. The LCP/LC family is no exception. Perhaps the world’s most expensive LC9…especially considering it started out as an LC380…
Saint’s trigger bar.
SS guide rod.
M*Carbo spring kit.
Lasermax.
RTK trigger.

How do you like the new triggerbar ?

As a standalone upgrade it was a marginal gain. Coupled with the RTK trigger was the best improvement. This model LC was the first and had a horribly long pull. Pull has been reduced an honest quarter inch.

I tried to find info on that item but could not find it.
The GP Sigurd trigger did about the same as that to LCPII.
When I did the fondling of the MAX the LGS had all 3 flavors if LCP.
I noticed about the similar difference between the OM trigger going from the LCPII and the MAX.

I bought that bar in 2012, not long after the LC380. Shortly afterwards Ruger “fixed” the length of pull to the current model, LCs I think.

We all have a thing that we put tons of money into that we love and other people ask “Why?” This is cool and I’m sure was fun to think of and build. Now, start spending all of your time at the range making loads to turn it into a tack driver…

I figure the 6" group with 30% in an13/4" at 10 to 12 yds/ is good enough for this pistol.was as good as it is going to get.

You are correct, it is the enjoyment in the attempt to make something I feel comfy with in my pocket!

Yeah, I was kidding about tack driving. You’re right that it depends on the application. But sometimes I do enjoy checking manuals then testing my abilities. Can be a nice relaxed day at the range, in the sun. Sort of a contest against physics…

If I remember right, that’s because they changed it from a double action hammer fired type trigger pull to a striker fired design.

And dropped the price about a C note.

I have two LCP II pistols and really think they are a lot of fun. I had no clue that many upgrades were available. Do we dare ask what $ amount you did in just upgrades? Knowing what you expected and put together, any of the upgrades you wish you didn’t buy due to less than stellar improvement to shooting?

Rough estimate on upgrades, around 400. give or take counting the 9mm conversion.
Trigger bar, 75
SS guide rod, 20
Trigger 75
Lasermax, 100
9mm conversion, 120
Spring kit, 20

No, it’s better than it came. Would I do it over? No. Ruger came out with the LCs which addressed my issues with the LC.
