Little Details

I really like the fact the slide locks open on an empty magazine, and the left side safety is a “push forward” natural movement. The textured, larger grip frame makes getting a grip easier and also distributes recoil over the hand better. The fixed front and rear sights seemed to shoot to point of aim on our test sample, and I was actually able to easily hit an 8" steel plate at 25 yards. Amazingly fun to do that with such a tiny pocket pistol!

The LCPII .22LR has a crisp “single-action” style trigger and a back-up safety system using a secondary hook to “catch” the hammer should it fall accidentally — which it can’t! The hammer can’t hit the firing pin unless the trigger is pulled to the rear.
