    Ruger LCR 38

    Hey guys. I'm considering getting a Ruger LCR in 38. I've got concerns about the polymer to aluminum frame link, i.e the junction where the plastic frame meets the metal upper part of the gun. Ever heard of that connection coming loose? I would probably pocket carry it and don't want the thing to come loose from sitting/standing. What do you think?

    I have never heard a story about the metal separating from the polymer if that helps!

    My wife has the LCR with about 1K rounds of 38+P and wadcutters thru it and it still looks new, no type of wear/damage what so ever.

    Best .38 Special snub on the market, at least in my mind.

    Ruger’s Radical New Lightweight Compact Revolver .38 Special LCR

    In 2 years I've never had a problem or been disappointed with mine except for the tamer grip being a bit large and sticky for pocket carry, though I've done it and my SP101 too!

    Very nice gun i have the 357. Just got it recently very comfortable to shoot with the hogue tamer grips. Have complete faith in the gun to function when i need it to.

    I'm not generally into revolvers, but had an old S&W Chiefs Special Airweight dropped in my lap by a neighbor who didn't want it in her house any more (husband was a sheriff and it was his, her adult son moved back in and he is a convicted felon). I have grown to REALLY like the little J frame.

    A friend at work recently bought an LCR for his first gun, and we went to the range to break him and the LCR in. I liked the LCR (+p) a ton !
    I would gladly trade my J frame for it, or my LC9 too. It had a really nice double action trigger, nicer than the S&W even, and a lot better than the LC9.

    At least 3000 rounds through my LCR357. Most of them 125G. JHP 357 Ammo. No problems and still looks good.

    If you choose to pocket carry, I think they are the single best choice out there for a reliable quick draw

    What non-shooter are YOU planning on taking to the range?
