Pony Up! Show off your Copper cylinder LCR/LCRx

I was able to play around with a 3 inch LCRx, but didn't like the sights that much.

Seemed way taller than the rather low profile fixed sights on LCRs that I've owned in the
past.

Since I've always admired the copper cylinder (colored) LCRs.

I was surprised to see a LCRx:

Ruger LCRx Black / Copper Cylinder .38 SPL 1.87-inch 5Rd Double Action Hogue Grips

No idea if I could pull the trigger on one, but they sure are nice looking...
and I could always shoot it single action until the trigger lightens up from
use.

I'm currently trying to improve or actually regain some strength in my hands.
The diagnosed/tested CTS comes from too much time on the computer

Please post your copper LCR or LCRx with holsters and ammo choices as well.

Well my LCRX just has the plain black cylinder. It just fine with me!!! I can tell you that with my arthritic hands that this is a fairly easy handgun to shoot.........but word of warning they can be hand cannons also. What a person needs to do when they purchase any of the line of LCR's is to try a variety of ammo. I found that standard pressure .38 Special works best for me in recoil I used Hornady Critical defense ammo in standard pressure. Much easier to use, I also noticed that you tried the LCRX 3 you can also add the longer grips from this revolver on to the standard LCRX. Good luck with regaining strength back into your hands. Even though I have a compact 1911 in 9mm my Ruger LCRX is still my main CCW gun.

Thanks, the regular LCRs 38+P revolvers are nice as well.

I never cared for 158 grain +P out of them.

I keep waiting to see when the new Ruger LCRX .357 Magnum makes it on the market. I want to add one of these to the collection just to have more variety in loads in one revolver in either .38 Special or .357. From what I have read this revolver will weigh about the same as the .357 LCR about 17 ounces. Where it's the same physical size as a LCRX .38 Special snub, my holsters will work just fine. Just adding about 3 more ounces in weight. I really like the ability for both SA & DA.

Copper LCRx

I bought a Copper Cylinder LCRx 38+p snubby aout 6 weeks ago. I was just at the range with it again today, along with my Blackhawk 45 Long Colt. When I bought it there was a nice sale going on for all Ruger Products at my local range/gun store and oddly enough the copper cylinder version was on sale 10 bucks cheaper. Not that it mattered...I loved the look of it and had held LCRx's several times trying to build up the nerve to tell the wife I had bought another gun. That day the sale was enough to get me to act on it. It is a little rough on the trigger finger with +P ammo, but I carry it loaded with that. For target practice I tone it down a little.

The load that works for my LCRX POA/POI at around 7-10 yards Hornady Critical Defense Lite load standard pressure 90 grain jhp ftx bullet thats not light on punch its going aound 1100-1200 fps. Its a easy round to shoot in a 14 ounce revolver!!!

I take it its just paint. But what are the cylinders made from? 7000 aluminum?

327 fm, 357 mag & 9mm are all stainless are they not?

Or did they change it around yet again?

All the LCR/LCRX cylinders are made out of stainless steel most are finished in black.

I only have one LCR - a .22 - and the cylinder has a very good looking and even finish on it. I bought mine used and there's barely a turn ring. I think I saw - I tot I taw - that the black/dark blue cylinders are Ion Bonded ... ? Either way, the cylinder looks nice. I just wish Ruger would go back to a quality-looking finish on the aluminum frames of the LCR's. Mine happens to be a smooth finish - but all I have seen recently look like they're cheaply parkerized ...

I bought the copper cylinder version last week, only because it was considerably cheaper. I didn't care what it looked like as long as it worked....and it didn't. Cylinder was binding and locking up, right out of the box.
