- 1 - Extra Power Magazine Release Spring
Ruger LCP / LCP II Extra Power Mag Release Spring
Compatible with both Ruger LCP 1, LCP 2, and the new .22LR model.
The compact design of the Ruger LCP can be challenging to grip without inadvertently engaging the magazine release. To address this, we've introduced a more robust magazine release spring. This ensures that even with a firm grip, the magazine remains securely in place, preventing unintentional releases during shooting. This upgraded spring significantly enhances the overall functionality, eliminating issues caused by the original, less resilient spring.
The Extra Power Mag Release Spring rectifies common issues associated with the Ruger LCP series, including unexpected magazine releases.
By popular demand, we've expanded our range of Ruger LCP 2 Accessories. M*CARBO is dedicated to providing solutions to enhance the performance and reliability of the Ruger LCP series. Our Ruger LCP / LCP 2 Extra Power Magazine Release Spring is a standout accessory in this line-up.

Night and Day Difference
Noticeable difference on the amount of pressure needed to drop the magazine, but not too much. Completely corrected the intermittent magazine drop while firing issue. One more happy customer for me.
Very noticeable difference
Ok so this spring makes a big difference. You can still release the mag without difficulty but you have to want to. I have two lcp’s so I could compare this to my other with stock spring. Makes me more confident carrying this weapon. The pin removal and install is important on these little guns. Pins removed right to left and installed left to right oriented in ur hand as if you were firing. Left side of pins have a larger diameter. This is obvious after the pin is removed. One side will fit inside the frame hole on the left side easily the other will not. So small diameter of pin back in the left side of frame and drive it home.
Makes A Difference
I did have an occasional magazine drop at the range and I was glad to come across this here at Mcarbo when I was picking up some other items. It does make the mag release a little stiff but it solves the problem of the unintentional mag drop. It is a good upgrade.
Mag Falling Out
I’ve had my LCP 2 for about 5 years now and I haven’t shot it much since the pandemic and the cost of 380. But I finally had a chance to go to the range and every time I shot my magazine would drop. At first I thought it was me, but I quickly realized the spring must’ve given out because no matter how I held it the mags kept falling out. I even bought a new mag hoping this would solve the issue but it did not. Purchased this $10 spring hoping to not have to ship my gun to Ruger and pray for a speedy return. Thankfully I just finished installing it today and after a whole box of ammo I didn’t have a single failure. I am super grateful for the amazing products Mcarbo produces and even more grateful for the AMAZING instruction video!
Excellent product and service
Fix for Ruger LCP 2 - .380
So I bought a new Ruger LCP 2 - in .380 and the first two boxes of ammo I was having trouble with the magazine. It was dropping out into my hands after every shot. I thought I was just holding it wrong (although I hold all of my other pistols in the same way without any problems). So I tried altering my grip a little bit and nothing seemed to help. So I drove home thinking I was going to sell the pistol and get something different, but then I looked around on the internet and saw that other people were having the same problem. Inadvertently pressing the magazine eject button when the snappy little LCP recoils. So, yes, turns out I too was accidentally hitting the magazine eject button with my hands after firing a round. And this was happening after every round. Hardly a tolerable situation with a concealed carry pistol. So I found M-Carbo and their improved magazine button spring. I bought one and it arrived a few days later and I installed it. I went out shooting that weekend and TADA! Problem fixed. A nice stout magazine ejector button spring was all it too. Now I can carry this little bugger with confidence that it will work when/if I ever need it too. And dont forget to buy some good carry rounds - Hornady Critical Defense. All set with my little .380 and my CYA iwb holster.
Works well pita to install
Definitely a more deliberate push to release the mag. I like it!
I didn't have the "universal" too to install and what a pita. Flung that thing across the room!
Finally, made my own tool to install and it went in without problem.
Awesome product - Ruger fix
I had problems with my Ruger LCPII ejecting the magazine when firing. New gun, new mags, both 6 and 7 round mags, all did it. Sent back to Ruger and they quickly repaired and sent back. They replaced the slide and magazine release. Worked great for approx 100 rounds and then started ejecting mags again. Made sure it wasn’t grip. Was about to junk the pistol or sell until I found MCARBO on one of the Ruger forums. Immediately ordered their mag release spring, quick shipping and easy install. Absolutely fixed my LCPII, 100 rounds so far and no issues with any mag ejecting. Definitely recommend.
I'm with the rest of the gang.... Need one of these for the LCP MAX ASAP!!
Please release this for the LCP Max =( need this badly!
When are you going to test this for the LCP max ?
LCP Max uses a spring that is different from the LCP 1&2.
It is similar to the Glock flat spring on the mag realize
Does this fit an LC380?
