Can't wait to these show up at the LGS. Been waiting for a SA/DA version.

Great, I'll have to see if my local FFL can get one from Williams.

I've got the 357 already, no idea why I need 2 but ..... ya only live once. I see now on Rugers web site the MSRP on these is about $70 less than the 357 with the standard front site. That seems like a pretty big price difference to me. If these hit the stores in the $350 - $370 range I'd think they should sell pretty well.

Well, I'm still not a huge fan of plastic guns, but in spite of that, I own many of them.

I have a LCR locked up that I've never shot, and never planned to. In the event that I'd actually shoot or carry a LCR, a SA/DA model would far better suit me. So in spite of myself, I've got my FFL keeping his eyes open for me. I will give one a try.

WAYNO.

Nice! I hope some more grip options for the LCR come out at some point.

I had two reactions to this:

a.) Offering the gun with a hammer is a pretty natural idea. Surprised they haven't tried it yet.
b.) LCR "X"...quite a handle to put on a gun you just put a hammer on:-)

My dealers cost on the new LCRX is $366/376 depending on the distributor so I expect the street price to be around $425/450 like the standard 38 Special LCR.

I like the SA/DA feature, always liked exposed hammer's on my revolvers.
Wish they would have made it in 9MM.

To make a DAO gun a DA/SA gun requires much more than to just "put a hammer on" it.

IMO SA hammers have no place on a snubbie carried for self defense. As a range gun it's ok, but who buys a snubbie for a range gun? DAO will make one a better shot as well.

Actually, it took a little time and practice to master small groups with the snubbie. At the range. Rapid fire, self defense, you're exactly right. DAO. What about offense? When you know you're going to shoot just once it actually is beneficial to "cock" the gun.

I agree with your article and I enjoyed it very much. But when wanting to justifiably wack something, it helps the execution to "cock" it first. Sick animals wander onto farms all the time and there is good things about multifunction tools. Of course it is also fun at the range to play Hollywood. Do ya feel lucky... punk?
