Sturm, Ruger Introduces the LCR-357

Sturm, Ruger & Company has introduced a steel-frame, .357 Magnum version of its Lightweight Compact Revolver (LCR).

The LCR-357 is the newest addition to the LCR revolvers, chambering the .357 Magnum in a compact, five-shot revolver that weighs 17.1 ounces. Although the same size as the original LCR chambered for .38 Special +P, the LCR-357's new blackened stainless steel frame easily handles full-power .357 magnum loads. Its weight effectively tames recoil when coupled with the LCR's patented recoil-absorbing polymer fire control housing and Hogue cushioned Monogrip.

The double-action-only LCR-357 boasts the patented friction-reducing cam introduced in the original LCR. The revolver employs a non-stacking trigger pull.

"The new LCR-357 is perfectly optimized for the .357 Magnum," according to Joe Zajk, Ruger's chief engineer for revolvers. "Its 17.1 ounce weight is just heavy enough to make shooting full-house .357 loads manageable, yet it is still small and light enough for discreet carry. It has all the features that made the original aluminum-framed LCR in .38+P such a success, but, with the steel frame, we now offer a model that makes shooting .357 Magnum a practical reality."

The new LCR-357 retails for $575 and accepts all accessories available for the original LCR, including holsters, speed loaders and sights. The Crimson Trace Lasergrip model is also now available for those who desire fast, low-light target acquisition in a more compact grip.
