Ruger Announces 9mm Conversion Kit For LC380

It looks like it’s that time of year again and Ruger is in new product release mode. Their latest announcement appeared in my inbox this morning; a conversion kit for the LC380 that converts it into a 9mm LC9.

LC380 Conversion

Unlike the LCR in .327 Magnum the conversion kit is available for order today directly from for $299.

I like the idea but I’m not so excited about that pricing. The retail cost of an LC9 is around $450 and street prices are probably closer to $360-375. I guess there are be areas where owning more than one handgun is difficult so having two calibers with a single serial number may be of some value but for me I would really rather spend the extra $60-75 for a second handgun rather than a conversion kit.

What do you think?

God bless…
