The Ruger Lightweight Compact Revolver (LCR) is an evolution in revolver design and boasts the following features:** Long-fiber, glass-filled polymer fire control housing helps reduce recoil.** Aircraft quality aluminum monolithic frame with a black synergistic hard coat provides sturdy, rigid support for the cylinder and barrel.** Extensively fluted 400 series stainless steel cylinder is lightweight and compact, but strong and durable enough to handle .38 Special +P loads. It is treated with an advanced form of Ruger’s Target Grey® finish.** Cylinder front latching system uses titanium components, optimized spring tension, and enhanced lockup geometry to ensure that the LCR’s cylinder stays locked in place during firing.** Friction-reducing cam fire control system results in non-stacking, smooth trigger pull for this double-action-only revolver.** Replaceable ramp front and fixed U-notch rear sights. ** Internal lock is hidden unobtrusively under the grip and does not interfere with the fire control mechanism in any way when disengaged.** Hogue® Tamer™ grip helps reduce perceived recoil. Crimson Trace® Lasergrip® model offers the advantages of a laser sighting system.
