Hi I have a LCP2 (LCPii) and I would really like better sites on it so I was wondering if the LCP Max slide will fit on the frame of the LCP 2, Or if anybody knows of a manufacturer that makes slides with sights as I cannot use the solid iron sites at all. THANKS!

Here's a link to a thread from Reddit. Some guy tried it and it worked fine. Racked, fired, cycled. It's Redditt so take it for what it's worth.

So what are your plans now that you know the LCP Max slide will cycle on the LCPII? Why not just sell the LCPII and get a Max?
How does he know this?

Hello everyone I heard from. Ruger, here's what they said:

Casey,
The slides are not interchangeable between the LCP II .380 and LCP MAX .380.
Ruger does not recommend modifying your firearm. Any modification may result in improper function of the firearm. Ruger does not test or recommend aftermarket parts that aren't sold on ShopRuger. Any questions regarding aftermarket parts should be directed to the manufacturer.
Thank you for your interest in Ruger.

Simply read through the thread, seems someone tried it and it worked for them. Does it make it a fact? No. Does it make it safe to do? No. As he has since called Ruger and they indicated it doesn’t it may be a dead thread.

However, my question to him was assuming it did work what was his plan.
Nope, someone said they read where someone said it worked for them but if you read the initial quoted source material they said they never racked it much less shot it.

Well... I tried it today and it worked just fine. I took the slide off the LCP MAX and put it on my LCP 2 frame. Fired three rounds of Federal HST just fine. Also, there is almost zero slide rattle when the LCP Max slide is on the LCP 2 frame.

I knew I had read it. Thanks.
