Ruger’s LCP II (Light Carry Pistol) chambered in .380 ACP took the pocket pistol market by storm just a few years ago. For 2020, the company has launched the Lite Rack version of this little semi-automatic chambered in .22 Long Rifle.

The company's new Lite Rack system includes improved slide serrations, pronounced cocking ears and a lighter recoil spring, all features designed to ease the burden of cycling a pistol slide by hand.

With the new Lite Rack system, shooters who struggle with racking traditional slides can run their handgun with ease. Likewise, those who want an easy-to-use gun for the range also have a good option in this rimfire LCP model.

Whether used as a training tool for an existing LCP or LCP II, or as a concealed-carry option, the low-recoiling Lite Rack LCP II in .22 LR allows shooters to train with and operate their pistol with confidence.

This new model fits existing LCP II holsters, and the trigger pull is identical to its center-fire predecessor. It’s primarily intended to serve as a soft-shooting, easy-to-operate understudy to the .380 ACP versions.

These days you can buy six rounds of .22 Long Rifle ammunition for the cost of a single round of .380 ACP, which cuts down on ammunition costs. With its small profile, and an unloaded weight of 10.9 ozs., it’s also an ideal kit gun for close-range pest control and an enjoyable option for casual plinking.

This pistol ships with one 10-round magazine and a soft pocket holster. For more information on the new Lite Rack model of the LCP II, visit
