    Must be a Ruger characteristic. Bought a new Ruger SR22 about 5 years ago. First rounds out of the mag. did the same thing. After that no problem at all.

    Nope me to.
    The thing I did not like about the LCP ii is the sights even one of them dovetailed would be a big improvement.
    The sights on it would be work for short range defense at 7 yards but I have other guns for that.I am hitting about an inch high and an inch left .
    That may be me I will have to shoot it some more and see. My last 30 rounds at 7 yards went into about a 3" group with about 20 in 1" little guns are fun but not easy to shoot accurately .

    Mine also tends to shoot a little high. I didn't purchase it for extreme accuracy, so fixed sights aren't a issue. It's designed as pocket pistol, as well as, cheap practice for those that own the 380 version. As long as it will swing a 3" diameter gong, at 10 yards, I'm happy. If I had my preference, it would have the same fixed sight arrangement that is on Ruger's LCR's.

    I would like a .25 acp Ruger with a four inch barrel.
    A .25 Wrangler would also suit me right down to my toes.

    My Glock 44 operates in a similar fashion. It is not a locked breech but the barrel does reciprocate backwards for a tiny bit before the ejection port opens. A bit of a delayed blowback I 'spose. These days my reloading time is pretty scarce and I am quickly learning to appreciate rimfire versions of centerfire guns. An LCP .22 will probably be my next gun.

    Mine has been amazingly reliable for a pocket 22lr I am up to maybe 500 rounds through it most of it the copper washed federal bulk with the only malfunctions after the first 50 being maybe 1 in a hundred typical 22lr not going off with a good solid imprint from the firing pin on the case. My only gripe is it's about 2" high at 7 yards.
    Neat little gun.

    I thought very serious about one but already have 2 ruger mark 2s and a walther p22 and numerous 22 revolvers so kinda hard to justify

    Just an up date on the lcp ii 22.
    I probably have 600 rounds of bulk federal through it now at 100 rounds a session I clean after each session and is the most reliable small 22 I have owned. It has had maybe one typical round fail to fire per hundred and they have a strong firing pin dent in the case , other than that I have had 0 malfunctions of any kind. Very impressive for a pocket size rimfire. It shoots high but it is a fun little gun to play with.🙂
