You would lose the muzzle rise reduction without the light weight. The cylinder frame being heavier than the grip frame does that, puts the balance point way forward.Just take out the lightweight aspect and keep the great trigger and muzzle rise reduction.
Cool!I am going to wake up an old thread here.
I was watching Gunblast.com on youtube today because Jeff Quinn go a hold of an LCR 9mm. Awesome revolver. It will not replace my LCR .38 due to the 9mm's steal frame.
BUT! I want on to watch the next video on Lehigh Defence Ammo.
At about 2:30 mins Jeff mentions that there are some "lightweight .44 specials" in the works and he cannot talk about it.
With Jeff's close ties to Ruger I pretty much think it is a slam dunk that Ruger has a LCR and/or LSR in .44 special on the way.
