    LCR range trip after trigger mod

    After polishing the trigger mechanisms, I took it out for 100 rounds today. I put about 50 rounds through it to get a feel for the trigger, which after the smoothing is much easier to control and keep on target providing I don't jerk it...lol.

    Getting a feel for the trigger 20 feet.


    Once I got comfortable with the trigger, I moved onto some shooting drills. Double taps were all within 2 inches of each other so I went onto something more practical.

    Start out at arm's length, hands up. While moving back, verbally issuing a warning, draw and fire 2 from the hip, raise to eye level and fire 3; always stepping back.

    Here are 2 of my best drills.




    I also shot some of my carry rounds. Winchester PDX1 130gr +P. Pretty stout stuff in the LCR, but not uncontrollable. The more I shoot it, the better I get with it and I really don't mind the +P stuff. As long as I am not shooting more than 20 rounds of it...lol. I still love this gun.

    Was the trigger that bad before? I thought this was the advantage of the LCR to begin with.

    Please provide more indepth description of the process you used. I am seriously looking at this for my first revolver.

    The trigger is great out of the box. All I did was take my dremel and polishing compound and polished the hammer, mainspring rod, hammer pin, and trigger sear. What it does is smooth out any rough machined parts. It doesn't lighten it, just makes it feel like it.

    Interesting, agreed. Looks like standard finish on these parts, some have special coatings to reduce friction that is lost during "polishing". Presume this is not the case here.

    I think the LCR has the best trigger of any small revolver ever made.
    Have Fun and Shoot Straight !!
