    New all polymer frame revolver

    this new one from taurus is an all polymer frame, rather than a polymer lower with an alloy upper, like Ruger's LCR. the cylinder, bore insert, and crane are metal parts.

    Looks interesting but the weight is almost 50% more than the LCR. I like the trigger on the LCR too.

    I would enjoy buying one to try to carry.

    Wished they would make a pug type in 45 long Colt or 44sp.

    Personally, I think those are some rather unattractive firearms. Not that appearance is of any concern in a SD CCW, but man. Perhaps they are fine, no issues, etc. I'm rather old school. I prefer heavy steel revolvers. I went with the crowd on the alloy framed 442...still think it feels funny, but it's fine. Went with the "polymer" (which to me is a fancy way of saying "plastic") framed semi-autos (ruger P95, XD40sc, 709 Slim) and they have all been great. But still...it's plastic...and unattractive. Stop the insanity!!!! A steel snubbie is not THAT heavy.

    Ugly and heavy. No, Fugly, and heavy. I carry a J frame in an OWB, so weight means nothing.

    640-1, 25 &3/4 oz, (727 grams for Canucks), and right sexy. That's with 5 158gr BB short barrels.

    the only reason I see them doing this is its cheaper and makes them more $. Im only 36, but I guess Im too old school for plastic revolvers .
    Be careful what you wish for. You just might get it ......

    +1. There's something just wrong about plastic revolvers.

    I love steel and wood, I also appreciate modern designs in polymer.
    But, simulated wood grips in polymer is just tacky.

    They started burying those guns in the pic, maybe they should finish the job. On the plus side Glocks look down right pretty in comparison.

    If the frame is all polymer, I will be interested to see the results of flame cutting on the top strap between the cone and the cylinder. The LCR is alloy, and Ruger had problems with this.
