It's not the trigger weight, it's the recoil, which seems to hit the first joint pad of my trigger finger hard. Anybody have this experience? Doesn't happen when I shoot 32s but when I load 327 mag it hurts.

Would gloves help?

I would just not view a LCR of any caliber as a range gun and expect shooting comfort. Well, maybe the 3"38 LCRX is OK for that.
I would view any of the other more aggressive LCRs as strictly last-ditch defensive firearms and at that point you will not really notice hand discomfort.
Bigger grips or downloading kind of defeats the purpose you bought that gun for in the first place.
Same conundrum has been going on with J frame S&Ws since their conception.

My LCR in 327 has not bothered my hand or fingers until I fired the 115gr. Gold Dot load. That gets snappy but at $1/ round I never shoot more than a box.

The recoil doesn’t bother me on the 327 or 357, the original mini grip is just so small, I can aim better with the longer full size LCRX grip.
I practice on a 8” gong at 20-50’. The little guns point very nicely, even without using the sights, I can ring steel at 20’ most of the time. Using sights ( f green fiber optic) I can hit steel every shot. Not bad for a 1.875” DAO.

It's likely one of those situations where YMMV ("your mileage may vary" ;>), because human hands come in so many different sizes and shapes. I remember a 40 caliber pocket auto, that had a trigger guard that rubbed my right index finger every time I squeezed the trigger. Funny thing - it didn't even touch my left index finger, when shooting left handed. Guess my left & right hands are sufficiently different to be noticeable, when firing some guns at least...

Glocks do me that way. I think it’s because I press the bottom of the trigger. I actually used band aids at the range until I sold the glocks. Gloves get caught under the trigger In my experience.
