Ruger Offers Award-Winning LCP with Crimson Trace Laserguard
December 22, 2010
Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE: RGR), is proud to announce the Ruger® LCP® (Lightweight Compact Pistol) will now be available with a Crimson Trace® Laserguard® and pocket holster.
"The popularity of the LCP has been overwhelming," said Chris Killoy, Ruger Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "When consumers told us what they were looking for in a small personal protection pistol, we delivered, and the results have exceeded our expectations. Now with the addition of the Crimson Trace® Laserguard®, the performance of the LCP as a personal protection firearm has been enhanced."
The Crimson Trace® Laserguard® helps LCP owners get on target quickly and assuredly through the use of the easy-to-find red laser dot. When gripping the pistol normally, the instinctive front-activation button allows shooters to project the laser wherever the gun is aimed. This provides immediate feedback and gives shooters confidence their shots will hit their target.
The Ruger LCP, a .380 autoloader with a 2.75-inch barrel and an overall length of 5.16 inches, offers legendary Ruger reliability and quality in an ultra-light, compact carry pistol. Winner of the Shooting Industry Academy of Excellence® 2008 Handgun of the Year Award, the LCP also delivers superior ergonomic design and handsome styling. It incorporates state-of-the-art polymers, aircraft quality aluminum alloys, and high-grade precision steel components engineered for strength and maximum weight savings.
The 9.4-ounce LCP pistol has a capacity of 6+1 rounds. With a height of only 3.6 inches and a width of .82 inches, the LCP is a reliable back-up or carry pistol. The high-performance, glass-filled nylon frame is topped by a through-hardened blued slide.
When size and weight savings count, the LCP is a natural for personal defense carry. The LCP with Crimson Trace® Laserguard® comes with a pocket holster, one magazine, external locking device and instruction manual.
