    A .357 LCR, Who Wants One?

    Ruger LCR Double-Action Revolver Model 5450

    This link was posted on another forum. Has this hit the market yet?

    As pleasant as the .38 Special LCR has proved to be to shoot, perhaps this .357 Magnum version might suit some who go for small revolvers with a kick.

    Very interesting...I dont know as if id like to shoot a bunch of .357 magnum loads out of one though lol...I may like it for a SD application but id probably be just fine with a .38 special :) . I DO however love a .357 in a 4" barrel heavier Revolver!

    I would opt for that before I would get a dedicated .38 spl. Practice with .38 and some .357 but have the .357 power for when it counts.

    It is apparently 4 ounces heavier than the LCR .38 Special and 5.5 ounces heaver than the Smith & Wesson Model 340 PD. It is lighter than the Smith & Wesson Model 60 2-inch by 5 ounces.

    Stupid California state government; it is not approved for sale there.

    I'm no fan of Ruger guns but I'd sit up and take notice if they were to design a larger framed version and chamber it for .44 Special.

    Honestly, I don't need more than the LCR in 38+P. Its very light and manageable.

    It won't be on my wish list. I wouldn't use it for magnum loads anyway.

    I would rather stick with my all metal M&P 340. Not sure I want that magnum in plastic, either.
