got ahold of a LCRx about a year ago in a trade

so far I like it, a well designed modern revolver

subtle engineering improvments make this a rugged 5 shot snub

contrary to the internet it's not a plastic gun, mines mostly stainless steel with titanium parts were needed

the trigger reminds me of a good k-frame both in travel length and reset, hard to go back to a j-frame

the nickel teflon coated internals began to feel like a good trigger job with use

in design it seems to be a cross between a Charter Arms Undercover and a SP101

you see design simularities between a High Standard Sentenial and a Charter Undercover

not surprising maybe, the engineer that worked on the Sentenial worked for Charter and Ruger. I also seem to remember the guy that founded the original Charter company had ties to Ruger.

the LCR is working out ok so far......

One of the best "outta the box" action. Smooth and consistent.

My experience with Ruger revawvers, all of them I remember had triggers that smoothed and improved with use. I don't remember any that didn't. When people would comment on it, I'd tell them it got an 'Ace trigger job'.

The LCR is one I wouldn't mind for another pocket gun; the exposed hammer wouldn't hurt the deal at all. Ace

Give me $1 every time a Liberal lies, I'll give you $5 every time one tells the truth; I'll end up a wealthy man, you'll end up broke.
If pro-gunners are as murderous as anti-gunners claim, why are there so many anti-gunners still running their mouths?
