Chambered in .327 Federal Magnum, the 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 new revolver 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 revolver has three main components: a polymer fire control housing, a blackened 400 series stainless steel monolithic frame and an extensively fluted stainless steel cylinder.
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-inch or 3-inch barrel.
All LCR models feature a replaceable white ramp front sight and an integral U-notch rear sight.
