Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. announces the introduction of the LCRx with a 3-inch barrel, the newest variation of the revolutionary Lightweight Compact Revolver (LCR). Chambered in .38 Spl. +P, this LCRx features an exposed hammer that allows it to be fired in either double-action or single-action mode.

"The newest LCRx is the perfect revolver for backpacking, concealed carry, home defense, or just plinking," said Chris Killoy, Ruger President and Chief Operating Officer. "The 3-inch barrel, adjustable sight and modest weight create a great all-around gun."

This latest addition to the LCR line maintains all the features of the original LCR, including a uniquely engineered double-action trigger pull and patented Ruger friction-reducing cam fire control system. The double-action trigger pull force on the LCR builds gradually and peaks later in the trigger stroke, resulting in better control and a trigger pull that feels much lighter than it actually is. The LCRx also incorporates crisp single-action functionality for precise shooting.

The LCRx rear sight is fully adjustable for both windage and elevation, and the full-length Hogue Tamer Grip without finger grooves makes for comfortable shooting. The LCR chambered in .38 Spl. +P has three main components: a polymer fire control housing, an aerospace grade aluminum monolithic frame, and an extensively fluted stainless steel cylinder. When it was 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 recently introduced 9 mm model, the Ruger LCR is available in .38 Spl +P, .357 Mag., .22 WMR and .22 LR double-action-only models. The exposed hammer LCRx is available in .38 Spl +P. All LCR models feature replaceable ramp front sights with white bar and some models feature a laser-sighting system from Crimson Trace.
