Ruger announced this week that their classic LCP micro .380ACP pistol will now be offered in a variant featuring a matte stainless slide. The gun maker first offered the model, which includes forward cocking serrations on the slide and an aluminum skeletonized trigger, in a special “10th Anniversary” edition last year to celebrate a decade of the LCP hitting the market. Now a regular offering, the ultracompact hammer-fired semi-auto uses a blued, 2.75-inch alloy steel barrel and polymer frame. Weight is 9.6-ounces while the overall length is 5.16-inches.

The LCP uses fixed sights and a textured glass-filled nylon grip frame.

The stainless LCP ships with a single flush-fitting six-round magazine that includes a finger grip extension floorplate. MSRP is $299, the same as 2018’s 10th Anniversary Limited Edition model. No word on if the company intends to offer the stainless slide in its follow-on LCP II series of pistols.
