I paid $419 shipped for mine off Gunbroker, no laser grips though.Everytime I see an LCR ad in one of the gunnie magazines the juices start flowing...... sooooooooo here's a question for my fellow gunnies...
What does one have to pay for this lightweight Ruger revolver?
You may want to see if you can try the trigger of a used LCR. It is amazing how this good trigger becomes a great trigger after a bit of shooting and dry firing. It lightens up by at least 2 pounds.My wife carries a Kahr CW9 when she is away from home. I work two or three nights a week and she carries it at home on those nights. She doesn't mind in the fall and winter when she is wearing jeans around the house, but hates it when she is wearing shorts or something that has an elastic waist.
We are looking for something lighter than the Kahr. I am looking for something more powerful than a .380. She used to have a S&W 638, but sold it because she had trouble pulling the trigger. To me the LCR trigger is much easier to pull than the 638. I think the difference in the trigger system and the fact that the grip is lower on the frame makes this true. The trigger on a standard revolver is pulled back and up whereas the LCR trigger pulls back. The trigger pull is more like that of a semi-auto than that of a traditional revolver.
We will get to let her see what she thinks of the LCR and the trigger next month. If she likes it we will give it a try.
My wife thought the stock LCR grips were too fat. The CT grips are narrower and she felt it was more comfortable. We still haven't had a chance to test fire one so I don't know which one will more comfortable to fire.We checked out a LCR the other day.
Both loved the light weight and smooth/light DA.
My wife didn't like the grip as much as I did.
She really liked the engraved NRA women's 442.
At least it isn't another TALO gun.
