Got the .357 magnum model. Can't wait to send some bullets down range in this very easy carrying compact revolver. :D

Looks like mine, too. Congrats, I feel sure you'll really like it.

When I got my LCR-22 with the "Ionbond DiamondBlack" coated cylinder, I was glad my 357 cylinder was the original "Advanced Target Grey" finish, which is not a coating. The Black is okay and holding up well, I just like the Grey better.

Very nice. I'm going to a local gun show this weekend. Going to "keep an eye out" so to speak.

Very nice! :) Please come back w/ a range report if you're so inclined. I've been toying w/ the idea of buying one of these myself -- sort of a summertime carry version of my SP101, if you will.

Congrats! Very nice, good luck with it & happy shootin'...;)

Mine is still on my "gotta have" list. I should have it alot sooner then I thought because with no ammo to buy around by me I can save up more $$$ for the LCR and bring it home that much quicker!

Ammo has been sold out at every place in my neck of the woods. I did pick up a box of Hornady .38 special 158gr XTP bullets, and a box of Magtech .357 magnum 158 Semi Jacket flat nose lead bullets... I shot 5 rounds of .38 special, and I was shocked at the amount of recoil... Reminded me of shooting my Kel Tec PF9 I had... Then I loaded up 5 .357 rounds... Holy crap! That hurt the wrist a little. But still a blast!

Does not look like mine....mine has XS sights :) Very nice revolver. I either carry that or my SP101. It's light and accurate....one of my better purchases!

Yahoo! Yes., the full power Magnum loads are pretty stout for recoil.

I'm loving my addition of a XS tritium front sight though.

Even if I'm too wimpy to handle Magnum recoil, a load like the double Tap
125 grainer is some real flash and awe factor if you want to put out some
real power from a Snubby.

I think my old Speed Six or even Sp-101s would be more suitable in this
regard, but find the ammo to be amazingly hot and accurate if I concentrate
on my first shots.

The 110s and 125s are real deal Magnums, and should appeal to those looking for some
real velocity to stuff into those chambers!


Enjoy that new KLCR and buying ammo and holsters for it!
