Ruger LCP Ergonomics

The LCP frame offers a two finger grip unless an extended magazine is used which can have a grip extension installed to allow a more secure grip. The grip is checkered to provide a comfortable and more stable grip with wet hands.

The LCP has a black frame and black slide. The color is even and smooth with the frame to slide fitment meeting Ruger’s standards. Second generation LCP’s were modified to include a shortened trigger pull and better sights.
