Ruger Expands the Popular Line of Lightweight Compact Revolvers with the Addition of the LCR in .327 Federal Magnum
(ArmsVault.com) – Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE: RGR) introduces the Ruger® LCR® in .327 Federal Magnum, the newest variation of the revolutionary Lightweight Compact Revolver (LCR). Chambered in .327 Federal Magnum, 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 Federal Magnum combines the proven design of the LCR with the performance of the .327 Federal Magnum 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 Federal Magnum utilizes a compact Hogue® Tamer™ grip with finger grooves, which is highly effective at reducing felt recoil. The LCR in .327 Federal Magnum 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 Federal Magnum caliber, the LCR also is available in .38 Special +P, .357 Magnum, 9 mm Luger, .22 Magnum and .22 Long Rifle. Other variations of the LCR include Crimson Trace® Lasergrips® models and .38 Special +P, external hammer LCRx™ models with a 1.875” or 3” barrel. All LCR models feature a replaceable white ramp front sight and an integral U-notch rear sight.
