Ruger LCR-XS With XS Front Night Sight, 38 Special
Ruger's award-winning Lightweight Compact Revolver (LCR®) is now available with an XS® Sight Systems 24/7 Tritium Standard Dot front sight and the original recoil-absorbing Hogue Tamer grip.
The XS® Sight Systems 24/7 Tritium Standard Dot front sight enhances sight acquisition in all light conditions and is designed for fast, low-light target acquisition. Fast, simple and effective, the 24/7 Tritium Standard Dot offers the ultimate in self-defense sight systems and excels in low-light accuracy in high-stress, defensive situations. This new model features the Hogue® Tamer? grip, which was designed using US military anthropomorphic data on hand shape and can be comfortably held by a broad spectrum of hand sizes.
The 13.5 ounce, small-frame, 5-shot Ruger LCR represents one of the most significant new revolver designs in over a century. The LCR's lightweight, chemical-resistant polymer fire control housing contains the entire fire control mechanism. The LCR's monolithic frame is an aerospace grade, 7000 series aluminum forging treated with a black synergistic hard coat that is applied after machining. The monolithic frame provides sturdy, rigid support for the cylinder and the 1-7/8" long barrel. The extensively fluted 400 series stainless steel cylinder, designed to handle .38 Special +P loads, is lightweight and compact, measuring only 1.283" in diameter in the chamber area.
The LCR's double-action-only trigger pull is uniquely engineered to minimize friction between the fire control components. The fire control system features a friction reducing cam, resulting in a smooth, non-stacking trigger pull. An internal lock, unobtrusively hidden under the grip, does not interfere with the fire control mechanism in any way when disengaged.
