Summary: The description, specs, photos, pricing and user ratings for the Ruger LCRx revolvers.

Manufacturer’s Description

The Ruger LCRx revolver is built on a polymer bottom/fire-control housing with a 7000-series aluminum upper frame and a stainless steel, fluted cylinder. Unlike Ruger’s LCR revolver, the LCRx features an exposed hammer spur, which allows single-action fire in addition to double-action fire. (The LCR is hammerless. Here’s the link to our in-depth review of the LCR.) It’s chambered in .357 Magnum and .38 Special (including +P).

Other features include:

  • A friction-reducing cam in the fire-control system designed to provide a smooth, non-stacking trigger pull;
  • an Ionbond Diamondblack finish on the cylinder;
  • a matte-black hard coat finish on the upper frame;
  • a stainless steel barrel in two lengths (see The Specs below);
  • a Hogue Tamer grip with finger grooves to reduce felt recoil and provide a good grip (Crimson Trace also offers Lasergrips for the LCRx); and
  • a pinned, ramp front sight.

The 1.875″ barrelled LCRx comes with a u-notch, integral rear sight. The 3″ barrelled LCRx comes with an adjustable rear sight, and a taller Hogue Tamer grip. Either revolver ships in a soft case.

Note: This guns is not approved in California or Massachusetts.
