Ruger LCP RECALL NOTICE

If you have one please read and follow the instructions,

LCP Recall

Ruger has recently received a small number of reports from the field indicating that LCP pistols can discharge when dropped onto a hard surface with a round in the chamber. We are firmly committed to safety and would like to retrofit all older LCP Pistols. The retrofit involves installation of an upgraded hammer mechanism at no charge to the customer.
Retrofitted LCP

We want to remind gun users that, for maximum safety when carrying any pistol with a loaded magazine in place, the chamber should be empty, and the slide should be closed. Any gun may fire if dropped or struck.

How to determine if your pistol needs the retrofit: All LCP pistols bearing prefix “370” (that is, serial number 370-xxxxx) may be affected. Newly manufactured and retrofitted “370” prefix LCP pistols with the new hammer mechanism installed have been marked with a diamond in the flat portion of the slot just behind and below the hammer as show to the right. Going forward, new pistols will be marked with the serial number prefix “371” (serial number 371-xxxxx). Pistols with the “371” prefix are not affected.

How to arrange to have your pistol retrofitted:
Step 1 - Contact us and provide your name, address, telephone number and LCP serial number.
To sign up for the FREE safety upgrade:

You may also sign up by using any of these alternative methods:
E-mail: [email protected]
Fax: (928) 541-8873
Phone: LCP Recall Hotline
1-800-784-3701
(available Monday - Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. EDT)

Step 2 - The new parts are being built and we will retrofit LCP pistols on a first-come, first-served basis as soon as they are available. When we are ready to retrofit your pistol, we will send you a shipping label and package with instructions so you can return your pistol to us FREE of charge.

Step 3 - We will install the new hammer mechanism, plus some other functional upgrades that we added since the LCP’s introduction, and return your LCP to you, all FREE of charge. When we do, we also will send you a FREE magazine with the new finger grip extension as a “thank you” for your patience and cooperation. We will make every effort to return your pistol within one week of receipt.

Thank you,
Sturm, Ruger & Co., Inc.

It really blows when a recall is needed, but Ruger does go out of the way to make its customers happy. That being said, the last TWO new semi auto pistols they have marketed have had recalls.
