If not, don't sweat it. They'll have another one designed and ready to go in a week or so. I'm sure they've already got the boxes ready to go out for the recall.

I have a 20-year-old Ruger, 9mm ancient KP-950. It is heavy, shoots ok. Since then I carry only revolvers 38s. I know, I'm a cowboy...automatics are ok,, but they can jam, my revolvers do not jam-- old fashion me...

buy about 200 rounds, lube the slide and breech good and shoot it,,you will find out if its gonna be ok real soon. Always re lube a new automatic or revolver first,,always do that..

Cowboys don't carry .38's, just .44's smile

Is this new one following the theme of a cheaper version of an existing model?

I do not believe so. It has features of the American and LCP II, but I think it is a new model.

I always run a new AR wet . The same probably does apply to a semi-auto handgun .

Really just the LC9s as far as I know. Really wrong of me to make that statement. Their LPC is reliability personified. I put several thousand through it with zero problem as far as I recall. The LPC is a great firearm.

Oh I have seen revolvers lock up. Smith and Wessons especially will have issues if the extractor rod backs out.

But yes, as long as the wheelgun is in time and nothing has shaken loose, they will go bang with great reliability. Recently The Lucky Gunner did a video about this topic because his newer GP100 Match Champion had the lockwork freeze up.
