Just received an e-mail from Ruger about their NEW handgun the LCR(Lightweight Compact Revolver). Looks great! Unigue combination of a aircraft-grade aluminum(frame),stainless(cylinder)and what they call the 'fire control housing'(picture the backstrap and grip peg)made of POLYMER. Weight is 13.5 oz. Cool looking gun. It appears to have a lock of some sorts internally below the mainspring that looks more robust(IF YOU HAVE TO HAVE ONE) than Smith's without the stupid hole in the side of the frame. I'm going to check it out. Might be my BUG. I'll always love those pre-lock(and the present no-lock versions)J-Frames..but this might get me "revolver buying"again! Check it out guys !
