Sturm, Ruger & Co., Inc. (NYSE: RGR) is pleased to announce a new Ruger® LCRx® 5-round revolver chambered in the hard-hitting .357 Magnum cartridge. This durable and reliable revolver is equipped with a 1.87″ barrel and features an exposed hammer that allows it to be fired in either double-action or single-action mode.
When it was originally introduced, the Ruger LCR® was one of the most significant new revolver designs in over a century and has since been awarded three patents. The new LCRx in .357 Magnum maintains all the features of the original LCR, including Ruger’s patented friction-reducing cam, a next-generation design in fire control systems that results in a smooth, non-stacking trigger pull. The double-action trigger pull force on the LCR builds gradually and peaks later in the trigger stroke, resulting in better control and a lighter felt trigger pull. The LCRx also incorporates crisp single-action functionality for precise shooting.
The LCRx is equipped with an integral u-notch rear sight and a pinned, white ramp front sight for quick target acquisition. The Hogue® Tamer™ Monogrip® with finger grooves provides outstanding control under recoil. The LCRx chambered in .357 Magnum has three main components: a polymer fire control housing, a stainless steel monolithic cylinder frame and an extensively fluted stainless steel cylinder.
In addition to this new model, the LCRx is available in .38 Spl +P with both 1.87 inch and 3 inch barrels. The original design LCR double-action-only model is available in .38 Spl +P, .357 Magnum, .327 Federal Magnum, 9mm Luger, .22 WMR and .22 LR.
