I enjoy reading informative reviews with pictures.
I've seen your videos, too. Good stuff :hand10:
Nice report. I'm not much of a revolver guy but I know I would either go with an SP101 or an LCR in .357
I am glad to hear that the LCR is holding up over the long haul. I am looking into getting one of these as my first carry gun. I was trying to make the choice between the 38 and 357 version. Your review helped me decide on the 357 for sure.
If you would not mind PMing me the link to your youtube videos I would love to see your shooting style. As you stated, I believe a carry gun should work as an extension of your body. I have handled this gun a few times at the store and I can see how using the sights could take some valuable time during a threatening situation.
Thanks for the great review!
Thanks, PM sent. Even if I were intending on shooting .38 exclusively I probably would still go with the 17 oz SS .357 version over the aluminum frame 13oz 38+p version for versatility and strength. The weight difference is negligible and the size is the same.
I've followed some of your other post on different threads…at times you have provided useful advice!
Keep it up!
I've been thinking real hard about getting a LCR in .357, this defenitely helps in the decision process! Now if that darn Saiga 12 hadn't just come up, this would be a LOT easier!
I 'm not a wheel gun guy, but I have given this one some serious consideration.
If I run across one at a good price I will give it a try.
What is MPI testing???
Magnetic Particle Inspection.
It's a form of non destructive testing that will show cracks.
+1. My LCR .357 has been flawless and shoots to poa. I carry it front pocket in a nemesis and forget it's there.
Sorry if this is a bit off topic but how does the recoil of the .357 LCR compare to a steel .357 J frame, or a Airweight .357 J frame?
