Southport, CT --(Ammoland.com)- Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE: RGR) announces the introduction of the LCRx, the newest variation of the revolutionary Lightweight Compact Revolver (LCR).

Chambered in .38 Special +P, the LCRx features an external hammer that allows it to be fired in single-action mode.

“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 Vice President of Sales and Marketing.

“Customers have been asking for a traditional double-action version of the LCR with an external hammer for optional single-action shooting. We were listening and have added a crisp single-action mode to the already smooth double-action LCR,” he concluded.

The newest LCR maintains all the features of the critically acclaimed original LCR. Its double-action-only trigger pull is uniquely engineered with a patented Ruger 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 trigger pull that feels much lighter than it actually is. This results in more controllable double-action shooting, even among those who find traditional double-action-only triggers difficult to operate.

The LCR has three main components: a polymer fire control housing, an aircraft quality aluminum 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.
