If there is a way to drop a SA revolver and have it fire, Ruger will find it.
Wonder if it will be available in kaliforniastan
I don't see any reason I'd want one of these.
Associated Press - The new line of Ruger polymer revolvers, the LCR pistols, were promptly recalled today after a deluge of owner returns. The problem seems to be that the polymer half of the pistol drew from the holster perfectly - while leaving the metal cylinder in the holster. The cause seems to be faulty pins in the revolvers polymer frame. Officials at Ruger had no comment except to say they'd honor all warranty work...
Not gonna lie, it looks kinda cool, but if they really make the thing lighter than my Airweight, I don't know if my little bitch hands could handle it too well.
Holy fucking in!
Would buy if priced right, which I'm sure it will be.
Looks like a perfect backup gun.
How is this better than a 642?
My 642 is in my jacket pocket. I almost forgot it was there.
Seriously why re-invent the wheel?
Or in this case, the wheelgun. Wocka wocka!
Here's a review
It's little bit lighter (10%) than the 642, and it looks like it should be priced under the 642 as well. If we set aside manufacturer bias and look at what makes a good small revolver, reliability and concealability, it's certainly possible that Ruger might have a winner. If time bears out that these guns are reliable, then Ruger has made a truly great gun. I wouldn't want to be the first guy to buy one of these, and immediately start carrying it, but give it a while and see what peoples' experiences are before we start making judgements about the gun.
I doubt that will be the case
MSRP for standard model is $525
"The MSRP is $525 for the standard model....I usually get my Rugers at around 23.5% of the MSRP, so I think this will be around $405 in my shop...people can expect to pay $385-$420"
Don't the 642s usually go in the mid $400's?
Didn't a lot of people say the same thing about the first polymer autoloaders?
I can buy them here at $399 for the internal lock models, the non-internal lock models are cheaper I believe.
I want to come live there. Around here you're lucky to get one for $450 at a shop.
i can see the news headlines now if it becomes popular
"New plastic pistol designed to slip though metal detectors and airport security threatens childrens' safety!!!11"
I paid 430 for my 642 here in Connecticut.
