NRA Gun of the Week: Ruger LCRx Revolver

Ruger has a great reputation for bringing the revolver into the modern age. Its “Six” series was one of the most advanced for its time, and now several decades later, its Lightweight Compact Revolver (LCR) series is once again taking double-action defensive revolvers to new technological heights. Its 7000-series aluminum main frame, polymer grip frame and patented, self-contained cam-style trigger design, the LCR is truly a 21st century revolver. An “x” designation means that the LCR further benefits from an exposed hammer that allows it to fire single-action for those times when a longer, more precise shot is essential. The smallest and most powerful LCRx weighs less than 14 ozs. and provides five shots of serious personal protection.

To see the .38 Spl. +P-chambered LCRx in action, check out this video hosted by American Rifleman’s Brian Sheetz, and for more on the LCR line and other Ruger firearms, visit ruger.com.
