    My opinion.....

    One of ,if not the best, lightweight revolvers on the market IMHO.

    Great DOA trigger, mine(actually my wifes ccw) is very accurate out to 15 yrds. At 13.6 oz is very easy to carry and conceal.

    It is quite perky when firing +p ammo, but manageable.

    We love it.

    You got a good deal at 3 bills.

    I have the LCR 357 which is like 4 oz. heavier than your LCR 38+P. I couldn't believe how feather light the 38+P LCR was. I doubt a person would even know they had one in their pocket. I bet with +P ammo it will be a handful but good for SD carry. Yep you got a good price. I wonder why the guy never shot it? I had a gun I was just going to keep unfired for a keep sake gun. LOL That didn't happen.........I had to shoot it.

    I also have the LCR357. I like it. I have over 3000 trouble free rounds threw it. I carry it every day along with a 442. You have a great gun at a great price.

    hmmm, can I horn in on this thread? is there any info on LCR trigger work? so far I can't find a spring kit or anybody who will admit to clipping a coil or 2 off of the hammer spring. (I did find a report on heating the spring to relieve tension but I don't want to go there.) until I can find parts and info, I'll stick with the j-frame.
    (how about a LCRx 9mm? I'd buy that.)
