(5 out of 5) Great company
by from Henderson, NV on

Loved doing business with these guys. I have bought two guns from them and every time has been problem free.

(5 out of 5) Ruger LCP
by from Leoma, Tennessee on

Love it, great pocket gun! SOSS was great. Have bought 2 more since this one!

(5 out of 5) The Custom is the best pocket 380 for the price
by from Beloit, Wisconsin on

I am so glad I got my hands on the Custom. They are not making them any more. I want to say it's even better than my LCP Ruger 2.

(5 out of 5) Ruger LCP Custom
by from Bremerton, WA on

Perfect for backup carry. Nearly weightless and not even noticed in Depring-style ankle holster which does afford unannounced room for extra magazine. Polymer frame has a recess above the trigger and can catch and pinch top of trigger finger flesh just forward and above trigger. Some may need to smooth/round off the sharp molded edges to suit. No other gripes at all. Good shooter!

(5 out of 5) Best kept secret on the planet.
by from San Antonio, Texas on

If you haven't actually held a Ruger LCP, then you have missed out on holding the BEST pocket pistol on the planet... Once you fire one, you'll know you have the best pocket pistol anywhere.... That's all I can say about that except you must buy your Ruger from Sportsmans Outdoor Superstore or you'll be paying too much...also missing out on GREAT service Buy one and enjoy.....

(4 out of 5) Ruger lcp .380 CUSTOM....satisfactory
by from Lenoir, NC on

First off customer service is GREAT and they answered any questions I had and were very nice. As far as shipping goes it was super quick. After I placed my order I had the gun in 3 days. Once I opened up my package I noticed I had a couple very noticeable scratches on the slide. This wasn't Sportsmans Outdoor Superstore fault as it came from the factory like that. On another note Rugers customer service is GREAT as well. I sent the pistol back to Ruger and they're fixing it like new, as they should! Overall very very happy with Sportsmans Outdoor Superstore!

(5 out of 5) LCP Custom
by from Palmer, Texas on

My wife had an LCP for several years, it was a very good pocket pistol. Recently she bought a LC9s purple! I carried the LCP until I saw a chance to buy the LCP Custom. I liked the LCP quite a bit. The LCP custom is a great carry pistol. I've only put 28rds through it, but I felt the trigger pull was smoother. The sights are bigger, and easier to locate.

(5 out of 5) Fantastic Concealed Carry Gun
by from Mayodan, NC on

The Ruger LCP Custom has to be the perfect pocket or wherever you want to carry it pistol. The size shape, weight, sights, trigger & ease of use are exceptional. The trigger pull on the Custom is the best I have tried on any sub-compact pistol. It is a hammer fired pistol with the hammer partially cocked, so that when you pull what amounts to a double action pull it is short & crisp. The wide aluminum trigger also makes the pull & effort smooth. I had wanted a very small deep concealment pistol, but was not happy with the mini revolvers or derringers, or for most of the sub compact pistols. This is the 21st century version of the derringer, greatly refined & perfected. The LCP Custom is an absolute joy to fire, with surprisingly minimal recoil & muzzle blast. There is no comparison to the very first, original LCP from several years ago. The Custom version of the LCP is amazing.

(5 out of 5) Perfect Carry
by from , FL on

The LCP Custom 380 is the perfect pocket carry firearm. Accurate, Great Sights, Smooth Trigger and with the new Underwood/Lehigh Xtreme Defender or Penatrator ammo this firearm has become a viable personal defense gun. Caution: Ruger recommends NOT running +P ammo through this gun.

(5 out of 5) lcp custom
by from alexandria, Minnesota on

I took it out and put 100 rounds of Winchester white box thru it without a problem. Shot it at 25 yards and put almost all shots into the black. Very inexpensive handgun but i am impressed by its reliability so far.

(5 out of 5) Ruger LCP Custom
by from Kennan, Wisconsin on

FANTASTIC service, prompt shipping, great price, awesome firearm. Don't let the low price fool you into thinking you're gonna get a piece of junk. LCP custom is very accurate for its size, with manageable recoil. The fiocchi hollow points I bought do fail to feed ~1 out of 50. All other ammo Ive used has performed flawlessly. My first purchase from SOSS, and definitely not the last.

(5 out of 5) Awesome gun!
by from Oshkosh, Wisconsin on

Performs flawlessly! Perfect gun for carrying. Ordering another one as soon as they're back in stock!!

(5 out of 5) Great pocket carry option
by from Sunrise, Florida on

Just received my LCP custom last week. It has been amazing! I took it to the range and put 150 rounds thru it without a single failure. The pistol is a little snappy but nothing I didn't expect from a weapon this small. I'm glad I waited for the custom to come back in stock because the trigger, sights, and steel guide rod are a plus. However don't expect much of the luminescent front sight, it doesn't glow at all. It fed 135 Rounds of blazer brass fmj 95 gr and 15 rounds of golden saber hollow point flawlessly. Dealing with Sportsman Outdoor was a pleasure. Definitely will continue doing business with them.

(5 out of 5) Perfect conceal weapon
by from Oak Creek, Wisconsin on

I bought this gun for a cheap crap gun. It's anything but that. It does need some refining but any capable person would be able to do. I put a 4.5lb trigger spring from a gen 1. Polished feed ramp and whole barrel. Smoothed trigger bar. I put on garrison magazine extenders. 1.25..... hogue grip . Stainless pins. But I love this little gun. This is by far the best bang for your buck. I have many many guns and I carry my LCP custom almost everyday now. I use a leather inside waistband holster. Deep concealment. Love it. Thanks so much.

(4 out of 5) Front sight poor choice
by from Clever, MO on

I purchased my LCP Custom elsewhere before I discovered SOSS. 5 of 5 would be perfect and IMHO the front sight is a poor choice, my only reason for a 4 instead of 5. I owned the original LCP and this is miles ahead of that for $20 more. I have only run a 100 rounds or so through the Custom but with multiple types of ammo and different brands including FMJ, wad cutter and 3 different hollow points, flawless no issues at all. The trigger pull is noticeably improved and am not only able to put some nice groups together but my laser is actually usable and I can hit the dot without looking at the firearm or the sights. I do recommend. This is not my EDC but a great backup and or suit and tie/shorts t shirt option.

(5 out of 5) Nice pistol and excellent value`;` but one question...
by from Las Vegas, NV on

I really like how easy the LCP Custom is to carry concealed. I have put about 100 rounds of various .380 through it with no problems so far. For only $229 at SOS it is a real bargain. The only odd thing is: Why did they bother to make the sight photo luminescent when it is designed to be carried in a pocket?

(5 out of 5) Great little piece
by from Henrico, NC on

Ran 100 rounds. One failure to eject using cheap ball ammo. 1% failure is good enough for me to carry. My Glocks when new had about same failure rate. My S&W air weight no failures. Mail order was swift.

(5 out of 5) Perfect transaction
by from Burnsville, Mn on

All went smoothly with the sale and shipment to my FFL dealer. Good price. Will use this retailer again.

(5 out of 5) LCP Custom 380
by from Carlisle, Pa on

Got my LCP Custom today from Sportsman's Outdoor Superstore, which will now be my go to place for handguns. Ran two boxes of 380s thru my LCP. Eats full metal jacket with no problems. Had one failure to feed with Winchester full metal jacket with the flat nose. Trigger and sights are WONDERFUL. Glad I bought the Custom model. This gun beats the S&W Bodyguard big time! At 7 yards I cut the X and ten ring out of the target! Not bad for a pocket pistol!

(5 out of 5) Ruger 380 LCP Custom - Great Gun!!!
by from SF, New Mexico on

I love this little gun. The LCP Custom features bigger sights and a nice fat and smooth trigger. 200 rounds fed flawless. Fits in almost every pocket. I can carry this almost always. Great quality from Ruger. Thinking of getting another for the wife. I have no intentions of sharing. I love my Glock 27, but this LCP is so much smaller and lighter that it is becoming my new favorite for every day carry.

(5 out of 5) Great for Concealed Carry
by from Des Moines, IA on

Note: front sight fell off after approx 300 rounds. Apparently this is a known issue with the LCP 380 Custom. Ruger has a fix if you send in the slide.

For the price, it's hard to beat. Fast shipping - I'd recommend and buy from SOS again.

This is the most concealable gun I've held. I haven't shot any other LCP Gen, but the trigger is fine on the Custom long & heavy like a DA. I haven't had any issues from the sights while drawing. This isn't a fun gun at the range, but you won't find me without it.

(5 out of 5) Another great purchase/delivery for SOS
by from Mesa, AZ on

Just flat out my favorite place to buy both new, like this one, and used firearms. Just a fast efficient group of folks who provide great customer service, fast shipping and fantastic prices. I can also recommend them for ammunition price and shipping costs beat the others hands down. I have recommended SOS to friends/family they too have also become repeat customers. The other great thing is if you have a recommendation for Deal of the Week, they actually listen and follow through with them. No other Web or Local gun store does this. What a concept, provide customers what they want and SOS gets that!

(5 out of 5) Excellent Service
by from Texas City, Texas on

Fast delivery. Excellent product, would buy from this dealer again.

(4 out of 5) Ruger LCP Custom 380
by from Bowdoinham, Maine on

Although I didn't purchase it here I thought I'd add my views. Nice little pistol however: after 500 rnds the front sight shoots loose, the screw on mine sheared and lost the sight. Ruger will not ship just the sight and screw, requiring you to ship it back to them. I find that to be unsatisfactory for a minor piece as this. I suggest if you buy this you make a tool to remove the screw and Loc-Tite it.

(5 out of 5) Conceal
by from Bluffton, SC on

Was looking for a ccw for summer/shorts. The LCP vanishes on my 510 with no prob. Was considering a Bodyguard but didn't want a safety. SOSS delivered quick, great pricing. Now to upgrade my winter ccw

Fast shipping to my FFL this is a great little gun with a few good upgrades the sights makes a big difference real nice trigger I really love it.

by from Lorain, Ohio on

This little gun is so sweet. Now I have owned the Gen 2 and Gen 1. I love the new trigger and the sights on it. This is a keeper for sure I love it really shoots really good and really good accuracy at 25 feet

(5 out of 5) Outstanding service price and product
by from Las Cruces, New Mexico on

Great price, fast flawless delivery!!! Will definitely recommend your site.

(5 out of 5) Great Little Gun
by from Aurora, MO on

The LCP custom is a great little gun. The sights are much better for me than the regular LCP. The trigger is smooth and wide for a great pull. The only thing I wish was different is that the sharp sight edges were filed a tick to be smoother coming out of my pocket. Overall, I really like it and it is a pleasure to shoot.
