Also why does this LCP barrel look like its paper thin in the highlighted section? Do they all look like this?
Thanks for any and all info related to my questions.
I've been carrying the LCP since it became available. I carried the Kel-Tec P3AT before that. My CCW class instructor put me onto the Kel-Tec. He's been carrying them for years. In fact he started out with the .32's. As soon as I got my LCP, I showed it to him. He bought one the next week. (we both have large hands and the Ruger just "feels" better in my hand)DA_TriggR4Ruger":3svlrwpv said:Cool, thnx for the info guys. Still deciding on a pocket piece. The LCP seems to be one of the more affordable ones right now. And i can actually find .380 ACP ammo again!
I've been looking into this world recently too, and saw two others you might check into, if you haven't:DA_TriggR4Ruger":3k3s7za6 said:... Still deciding on a pocket piece. The LCP seems to be one of the more affordable ones right now. ...
If the gun control idiots have their way, it might be. :wink:Yosemite Sam":348b7vq2 said:. . . It's not going to be an heirloom in 50 years.

They all have that thin section, I think it has to do with the way the barrel and slide move in relation to each other when the slide starts to move rearward. They need clearance so that the barrel and slide don't bind. It's easier to machine it all the way around when they turn the barrel than to transfer them to a mill to cut out the slot only where it needs to be. At least, that's my best guess.
