Ruger introduced the Ruger LCR in .327 Fed. Magnum, the newest variation of the revolutionary Lightweight Compact Revolver (LCR). Chambered in .327 Fed. Mag., this six-round LCR has an additional round of capacity compared to other centerfire LCRs. This double-action only revolver also features a concealed hammer to minimize snagging during concealed carry.

"The LCR in .327 Fed. Mag. combines the proven design of the LCR with the performance of the .327 Fed. Mag. 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 critically acclaimed original LCR. 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. The LCR in .327 Fed. Mag. utilizes a compact Hogue Tamer grip with finger grooves, which is highly effective at reducing felt recoil. The LCR in .327 Fed. Mag. has three main components: a polymer fire control housing, a blackened 400 series stainless steel monolithic frame and an extensively fluted stainless steel cylinder.

When originally introduced, the Ruger LCR revolver was one of the most significant new revolver designs in over a century and it has since 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, .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-inch barrel. All LCR models feature a replaceable white ramp front sight and an integral U-notch rear sight.
