Editor’s Note:

The Ruger LCR utilizes a monolithic frame made from aerospace-grade, 7000-series aluminum (.22 LR, .22 Magnum, .38 Special) and 400-series stainless steel (.357 Magnum, 9mm Luger, .327 Federal). Combined with a polymer fire control housing, the result is a lighter revolver that still helps reduce overall felt recoil. A Hogue Tamer Monogrip and the light, friction-reducing trigger help ensure good shootability in this pocket-sized revolver. Ruger met their goal of making a lightweight revolver that is fairly affordable and reliable with the LCR.

By The Numbers - Ruger LCR

Accuracy
For a snub nose, the little LCR is perfectly competent at defensive distances, and the smooth trigger makes a big difference.
Reliability
I’m taking off a point for the potential of crimp jump (9mm model only).
Customization
There isn’t much you can put on or take off a revolver. However, the LCR has been quite successful, so different grips, lasers, and front sights are available.
Ergonomics
Complaints are few and far between with the ergonomics. With the LCR, the main issue is the ultra-small grip included with the gun.

“Kimber did an awesome job with this revolver. Aesthetically it’s appealing and eye-catching. The controls are easy to manipulate, the trigger is beautifully smooth, and the gun feels good in my hands. The biggest downside is the need for speedloaders because they are not easy to find.” — Kat Stevens
