What is your "carry" ammo?
Well just got a call, MPI test found zero issues. The weapon is solid. I am grinning from ear to ear.
Ccccccc what? Ccccccccccc Hawks!
It's good to know that I can look forward to a long lasting and well built firearm. That's one thing I had heard before I bought my LCR in .38. I read a couple of reviews on the net saying they didn't hold up well under heavy use.
Thanks for taking the time to post your results and opinion.
Very good report! Thank you for posting it.
I am a poor revolver shot but my wife is an excellent shot with a revolver and she really wants one of these. So, this may have just gone on the "to get" list as long as she likes the way it feels in her hand. We will have to make a trip to the gun shop so she can hold one....
Update, I am pushing 2K with this with no ill effects. Lots of 115 and 125 grain generic ( such as WWB) FNJ magnum rounds through it since I last posted. I have become very proficient with the speed strips but I found a new company I ordered a speedloader from to test out to see if it works better.... it looks like they too took material off and made them smaller in diameter than the HKS.
Pricey but I just can't seem to like the 5 star firearms shiney ones so I never ordered one. If they did them in a more subdued black I may buy them.... I know I know it is just a color, but I am not into shiney stuff.
I thank you for taking your time to make such a thorough report of your findings with your LCR 357.
My LCR .357 had to go back to Ruger for a broken firing pin issue with less than 300 rounds through it.
But at least they fixed it free of charge.
There is a solution but we are not Jedi... not yet.
We have deep thinkers and stinkers in this group that could come up with a solution...
It does not have an insert at the top strap. I only have about 500 rounds through it so far (I don't get to shoot much), but haven't seen any sign of wear. All in all I like it very much but would probably be very tempted to get the 357 if buying today. Thanks for your review.

Update: At around 2500 rounds for this weapon so I bought another to train with and use this as my daily carry. I do not feel undergunned or the need to carry a g19 and 3 mags. Life is good and lightweight carry is even better.
I think you just sold me one of these. Thanks for the in-depth and the updates.
After my last class, I realized that I should have a "coat pocket gun" for the winter - that it would give me a significant edge (fired from within the pocket). The lightweight LCR .375 definitely fits the bill.
