Ruger LC380 Reintroduced to California Market

Ruger LC380 Reintroduced to California Market

Ruger_LC380CARuger has announced that its popular LC380 pistol will once again be available to California buyers.

The Ruger LC380 was available to California residents after its initial nationwide introduction in 2013, but in 2014 Ruger implemented minor changes in its production process that would've required the pistol to meet California's microstamping law in order to be sold in the state.


Now Ruger has reintroduced the pistol as originally approved by the state when it was first released. Available under the designation LC380CA, the new California compliant model avoids the microstamping law and places the LC380 back into the hands of California gun owners.



As with the standard LC380, the LC380CA holds 7 +1 rounds of .380 ACP in a lightweight, compact pistol. The California compliant pistol has all of the same standard features and specifications as the regular LC380, including its loaded chamber indicator, magazine disconnect and manual external safety.

Just like the standard pistol, the Ruger LC380CA comes with one 7-round magazine, a soft case and a locking device. However, for a limited time, the LC380CA will also ship with a LaserMax CenterFire frame-mounted red laser.


The Ruger LC380CA California compliant pistol is available for $499.
