Ruger has issued a recall on the extremely popular new LCP 380 auto. The problem seems to be that its possible for the gun to discharge if dropped. In Rugers words, theyve received a small number of reports to the effect that the gun, '...can discharge when dropped onto a hard surface with a round in the chamber.' The company has offered a retrofit of a different hammer mechanism to cure the problem. This will be at no charge to the customer, and details how to proceed may be obtained via email to: LCPRecall@ruger.com, or by phone to the 'recall hotline' at (800) 784-3701. For your troubles, youll also receive a free new magazine with a finger extension, like the one that came with one of the Kel-Tecs two magazines.
