Ruger has delivered a pocketable 10+1 .380 ACP ultra-compact pistol to the market this week by announcing the new LCP MAX.
As the specs are everything with the new gun, the LCP MAX is under an inch wide, weighs 10.6 ounces unloaded, is 4 inches high, and just 5.17 inches long. Comparatively, this puts it into the same footprint as the 6+1 round single-stack LCP II and brings it in well below the size of any of the new micro-9 pistols such as the Sig P365 or Ruger MAX 9.
"The LCP MAX design incorporates over a decade of learning and experience," said Ruger president and CEO, Chris Killoy. "What you loved about your LCP and LCP II, we know you will love even more with the NEW LCP MAX."
Ruger says the new LCP MAX pistol's double-stack magazine feed lips are optimized to reliably feed the wide variety of modern .380 ammo that is out there while having a feel that is "identical to the LCP II magazine (with its extended floorplate installed) while accommodating an additional 4 rounds of ammunition."
