    It's too bad Colt stopped production of their snubbies. What a pleasure to shoot. Locks up like a bank vault and runs like a swiss clock.
    A Colt with nylon bullets. Now that's funny.

    Thanks for the clarification. The bluish hues had me seeing Nyclads which struck me as amusingly "out of time."

    FYI I believe nyclad ammo was first introduced in the late 60's which indeed makes it appropriate for the time of that weapon.

    DC, that's the Navy LCR, yes? Quit handsome. I'm fascinated with these LCR colors. Good or bad, Ruger might well be the Spyderco of the handgun world.

    My LCR turned brown after a couple hundred rounds.

    Sent it back to Ruger to fix a "broken firing pin" issue and had it refinished too. I've since installed an XS Dot.

    Shoot the dot! Got it!

    >Wondering Off topic<

    Now, back to the earlier nyclad distraction that I so obtrusively introduced into this thread, not that's it's out of place in this thread given the popularity of nyclads with snubbies..... I did some quick clicking and found that Federal introduced it's nyclad line in the early '80s. This is the nyclad timeline that I was familiar with until I found out that Federal bought the technology from S&W - remember S&W ammo? - in the early '70s. That sounds pretty close to "late sixties."

    Anyway, Snubbie on, Gentlemen.

    I wasn't aware that there were different colors with the LCR .38. I had my local guy order it and assumed it would look like what I saw online, and it did.

    So, the aluminum on your was grey but turned brown?

    Mine is stainless, KLCR .357. It turned from black to brown and the refinish is black. That's the standard color. There are some Talo editions out there - Blue Grey (Navy), OD Green (Army), Grey, and Tan are what I've seen so far.

    What does the K mean (KLCR)? I'm not sure if I'd call mine Grey or Blue Grey.

    I did consider the .357 but because it weighs more (I wanted as little weight as possible), costs around $50 more, and it would kick like a mule, I decided on the .38

    ...of course I wouldn't mind owning all 3 version if money wasn't an issue.
