Ruger Expands the Popular Line of Lightweight Compact Revolvers with the Addition of the LCRx


Makes no sense to me.  Why in the world would you rather have an exposed hammer when the LCR's is inside?  Plus they don't come in .357, though they may later. 

Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE: RGR) announces the introduction of the LCRx™, the newest variation of the revolutionary Lightweight Compact Revolver (LCR®). Chambered in .38 Special +P, the LCRx™ features an external hammer that allows it to be fired in single-action mode.

“Since its introduction in 2009, the LCR® has become extremely popular with conceal carry customers seeking the simplicity of a revolver,” said Chris Killoy, Ruger Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “Customers have been asking for a traditional double-action version of the LCR® with an external hammer for optional single-action shooting. We were listening and have added a crisp single-action mode to the already smooth double-action LCR®,” he concluded.

  1. i have 3 lcr's, but i miss the ability to ratchet the cylinder around to choose a different round. in the field i run 3 shotshells for snakes and 2 jhp's for other snakes. and its also much easier to get on target with single action. i'll be trading mine in on the new model.

    1. That would work for you, but not me as mine is a carry, pocket pistol in max .357. I've tried different ways of carrying one of my 45's 100% of the time, but wasn't successful
