Based on the popular Lightweight Compact Revolver (LCR), the Ruger LCRx is the newest iteration for Ruger's LCR line. With an MSRP of $529, this little firecracker comes chambered in .38 Special +P. The external hammer allows the LCRx to shoot in both double and single-action mode, which was something that customers requested. The original LCR quickly became a fan favorite after its introduction in 2009, but consumers wanted the choice of shooting single-action. The LCRx juxtaposes the crisp single-action with the smooth double-action trigger pull.

To engineer the double-action-only trigger pull in the new LCRx, Ruger utilized a patented friction-reducing cam fire control system. This makes the pull feel lighter than it actually is, due to the gradual build-up of force that peaks later in the pull.
