Ruger Announces The 10th Anniversary Limited Edition LCP .380 Pistol

Ruger Announces the The LCP 10th Anniversary Limited Edition

It’s hard to believe that Ruger’s been making their portable, pocketable, affordable LCP .380 for a decade now. Yet here we are. And to celebrate the milestone, they’ve announced a 10th anniversary limited edition LCP. Here’s their press release:

Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE-RGR) is proud to commemorate the 10th Anniversary of the LCP® by releasing a Limited Edition pistol to mark the occasion. Owed to its size, weight and reliability, Ruger’s Lightweight Compact Pistol has become the preferred backup gun for law enforcement and an everyday carry companion for countless law-abiding Americans.

10 years after its introduction, the LCP is still the perfect choice for personal protection. This Limited Edition anniversary pistol features a stainless steel slide with custom forward serrations, an aluminum skeletonized trigger and special “Tenth Anniversary” laser engraving.

Not much larger than a modern smartphone and less than 1″ wide, the LCP provides many concealed carry options while offering 6+1 capacity in the popular .380 Auto caliber. The high-performance, glass-filled nylon grip frame is checkered for a secure grip, while the included finger grip extension floorplate may be added to the magazine to accommodate larger hand sizes and provide increased grip area. Fixed sights integral to the slide and a recessed hammer provide confidence when drawing the LCP from a pocket holster.

    Expensive engraving is just what a cheap 380 pocket pistol needs.

      Since when is 10 years such an important milestone? Especially for Ruger. 25 maybe. 50 certainly. But 10? How about 10 years without a recall? Now that would be something to celebrate!

      I recall a special run of LCP’s that were for sale in Texas shortly after then-Gov. Perry used one to take out a coyote that tried to eat Perry’s dog during his morning jog out in the hills west of Austin. (JWT can give you the straight scoop on this, as he worked for Perry at that time.)
      They were engraved as “LCP: Lonestar Coyote Protection” with a Texas flag.

    The best question is here is…why are the LCP and the LCPII in parallel production? I’ve been wondering that one for a while. And, what’s that Mayodan NC business all about?

      One reason I suspect is that the revised, 2nd gen original LCP is a fine weapon in it’s own right. If you visit the forums, LCP owners comment that they like the 2nd gen’s improved trigger (it really is a marked improvement over the much maligned original) and slightly smaller size so much that they decided not to purchase the LCPII, fine handgun that it is. My 2nd gen w/Hogue grips is just about a perfect carry gun.

        Count me in that group. LCP Custom ftw!

    2. avatar Concerned says:

      The LCP can be carried without a holster, like in you pocket for quick access , the LCPII has a different trigger and can go off by accident if not carried in a holster

    Oh man the stainless slide sounds nice. I use my lcp custom a lot in the summer for yard work and working on things and it gets pretty soaked in sweat. I know it sounds gross. Anyway the stainless slide would be nice to have.

    1. avatar Setarip says:

      That’s interesting! What kind of yard work can you do with an LCP?

      *sarcasm

    Good enough excuse to buy another gat.
    I don’t have a pocket pistol.

    I had my first chance to shoot an LCP. A buddy borrowed it from his girlfriend. I was not impressed. It’s nowhere near as easy to shoot or accurate as my Kahr CW380. The trigger on the LCP I shot was awful.

    The CW380 is a much better choice. The LCP II, however, is a fantastic little pistol.

      Jean-Claude,

      Given that the Ruger LCP costs almost 1/2 the price of a Kahr CW380, direct comparisons are not fair.

      Let’s remember the purpose of mouse guns chambered in .380 ACP: they are self-defense firearms for engagements at contact distances. In that primary role the Ruger LCP functions just as well as the Kahr CW380.

        As a plus ruger isnt owned by cult family moon. Thats priceless

      2. avatar VicRattlehead says:

        I always love it when people say “my (fill in the blank with object costing several orders of magnitude more) is SOOOO much better than ‘X’.
        We’ll, I would certainly hope so!

        1. avatar Guywiththegun says:

          MSRP for a Kahr CW380 is $418, MSRP for this LCP is $300. That’s not a magnitude, let alone several. Its pretty much fact the sights and trigger on the Kahr are better.

        2. avatar Jean-Claude says:

          CW380s are available for $249 all the time. They’re not expensive at all

    I like Ruger pistols, but they seem to be taking a bow for an essentially copied pistol.
