Problem; Ruger LCP Custom.
Take down & clean LCP custom (red trigger).. Daughter-in-Law used it for a training session, 100 rounds or better. Later found she could not rack the
slide more than about a quarter or 3/8 of an inch.
I tried it and found the same..and assumed it was primarily dirty. Tore it down, cleaned and lubed it...problem did not go away.
It racks easily for about a quarter or 3/8 inch..then hits a hard stop.
Even before cleaning, it was a hard stop..like hitting a definite hard, steel blockage of some kind, so now that it is clean it's doing the same thing.
Help please !
