Ruger LCRx Question for Those "In the Know"
I cannot help but notice the new Ruger LCRx 38 special +p is out. I have even priced several and talked trade on occasion. I guess I am smitten that much by them.
But I was wondering if anyone might know or have heard if Ruger will bring to the market a LCRx 9mm? Now I would be all over that for sure!!!
Let me know if anyone has any ideas or has read something along those lines.
My personal opinion is that the beauty of the LCR (such as it is) is the DA trigger. Snub-nosed revolvers (to me) are meant for emergency use, which means double-action firing. I don't own one, but have handled a couple, and the DA trigger was nicer than the Model 642 I do own - not much better, but a little.
The addition of an external hammer for single action firing defeats the whole purpose of the LCR, in my opinion. If I were buying one, I would go with the standard LCR in .38 Special, and use ammo with a bullet that expands properly and penetrates the best, and forget about the very small gains of +P ammo. The good DA trigger is the selling point, to me.
I think the LCRX would be a big improvement over the regular LCR. I own an LCR in 38 spl and for my hands the grip is too short. Works great for carry but I can only get a two finger grip on it, and because of that, I don't really care to do much range shooting with it. From what I've seen of the LCRX, the longer grip and adjustable sights are a big plus for shooting comfort. Guess I kinda also think if you need to go +P why not just get a 357 to begin with?
I haven't bought any +P ammo, but I'd bet it's almost as expensive as standard 357 to begin with, so I'm just not seeing the advantage to +P either. Just my $.02.
