I was NOT going to post this but I figure I better come clean.
Here goes: My son and I went this afternoon to my gun store/range to specifically look at the Ruger LCR.
I've read a ton on the gun and was HOT to purchase one. I even posted about it a couple times.
Well, I hate to say this...but I was disappointed .
The trigger pull was EXCELLENT, BUT the cylinder could "free-spin" clockwise(as all Smiths and Rugers operate counter-clockwise in the firing sequence)quite abit before locking up.
The gun felt "loose" for lack of another term.
Spoke to one of the salesman and he said every one that has come in feels the same.
I do NOT want to knock Ruger (I've owned their revolvers and LOVED them), but I'm no longer keen on the gun.
I looked at a NO-LOCK Smith 442 and it felt like a Swiss vault in comparison.
I've owned Smith J-Frames(36,60 and 640),but never an Airweight.
I think this is the route I'll go..a NO-LOCK 442 or 642. My alternate will be a DAO SP-101 if I reconsider the weight issue. I just felt I had to throw my $.02 in.
I hope to hear from some LCR owners and their thoughts.:smile
