Ruger has expanded their product line with the introduction of a new Lightweight Compact Revolver (LCR) chambered in 9mm.

As the press release points out, the new 9mm LCR retains all of the same features of the original LCR, such as a polymer fire control housing, an aero-space grade, aluminum monolithic frame, an extensively fluted stainless steel cylinder, and a double-action-only trigger pull with Ruger’s patented friction reducing cam fire control system. The trigger pull force builds gradually and peaks later in the trigger stroke, which results in a trigger pull that is much lighter than it actually is.

“Since its introduction in 2009, the LCR has become extremely popular with conceal carry customers seeking the simplicity of a revolver,” said Chris Killoy, Ruger President and Chief Operating Officer. “Customers have been asking for a 9mm version due to ammo availability and compatibility with pistols. We were listening and have added a 9mm version of the LCR,” he concluded.

In addition to the new 9mm variant, the LCR double-action-only model can also be purchased in .38 Spl. +P, .357 Mag., .22 WMR. and .22 LR. All LCRs come with replaceable ramp front sights with white bar and a fixed U-notch rear sight. See below for additional details.
