Ruger has announced two new lightweight compact handguns: the LCRx with external hammer and 3” barrel chambered in .22 LR and the LCP II with factory-installed Viridian E-Series red laser.

"With an 8-round capacity, the .22 LR LCRx is the perfect revolver for range practice or to take with you on that fishing or camping trip," said Chris Killoy, Ruger president and chief operating officer. "The 3” barrel, adjustable sight and low recoil make for a tremendously fun shooting experience," he continued. 

  

This newest addition to the LCRx family features a fully adjustable rear sight, full-size smooth Hogue Tamer grip, polymer fire control housing, aerospace grade aluminum monolithic frame and an extensively fluted stainless steel cylinder. This new model expands the diverse Ruger LCR family, which features a variety of calibers and configurations.

 

Additionally, the LCP II features a factory-installed Viridian E-Series red (635-650 nm) laser. The 1 oz. laser unit is mounted on the trigger guard and features ambidextrous push-button activation. The new model features the same trigger pull with single-action feel, textured grip frame, easy-to-rack slide, last round hold-open, integral sights, bladed trigger safety and internal safety features as other models of the LCP II. The LCP II with Viridian E-Series red laser comes with a pocket holster and offers consumers a new low-cost option for compact, concealed carry.
