Sturm, Ruger & Co. has announced its newest caliber to be included in the Lightweight Compact Revolver (LCR) lineup: .327 Fed. Mag. The six-round LCR has an additional round of capacity compared to other center-fire LCRs. This double-action-only revolver also features a concealed hammer.

"The LCR in .327 Federal Magnum combines the proven design of the LCR with the performance of the .327 Federal Magnum cartridge to create a great revolver for both concealed carry and home defense," said Chris Killoy, Ruger President and COO.

This new LCR maintains all the features of the original revolver. Its double-action trigger pull is uniquely engineered with a patented friction reducing cam fire control system. The trigger pull force on the LCR builds gradually and peaks later in the trigger stroke, resulting in a smooth, non-stacking trigger pull that feels much lighter than it actually is. It also utilizes a compact Hogue Tamer grip with finger grooves, which reduces felt recoil. The revolver has three main components: a polymer fire control housing, a blackened 400 series stainless steel monolithic frame and an extensively fluted stainless steel cylinder.

Since its introduction. the Ruger LCR revolver has been awarded three patents. In addition to the .new 327 Fed. Mag. caliber, the LCR also is available in .38 Spl. +P, .357 Mag., 9 mm Luger, .22 Mag. and .22 LR. Other variations of the LCR include Crimson Trace Lasergrips models and .38 Spl. +P, external hammer LCRx models with a 1.875" or 3" barrel. All LCR models feature a replaceable white ramp front sight and an integral U-notch rear sight.
