What you guys think of the new LCR 9mm ? ImageUploadedByRuger Forum1411433110.686036.jpg

Ruger Expands the Popular Line of Lightweight Compact Revolvers with the Addition of the 9mm LCR
September 22, 2014
Sturm, Ruger & Co., Inc. (NYSE: RGR) announces the introduction of the 9mm LCR®, the newest variation of the revolutionary Lightweight Compact Revolver (LCR).

"Since its introduction in 2009, the LCR has become extremely popular with conceal carry customers seeking the simplicity of a revolver," said Chris Killoy, Ruger President and Chief Operating Officer. "Customers have been asking for a 9mm version due to ammo availability and compatibility with pistols. We were listening and have added a 9mm version of the LCR," he concluded.

The newest LCR retains all the features of the critically acclaimed original LCR. Its double-action-only trigger pull is uniquely engineered with a patented Ruger® friction reducing cam fire control system. The trigger pull force on the LCR builds gradually and peaks later in the trigger stroke, resulting in a trigger pull that feels much lighter than it actually is. This results in more controllable double-action shooting, even among those who find traditional double-action-only triggers difficult to operate. The LCR is elegantly designed with three main components: a polymer fire control housing, monolithic frame, and an extensively fluted stainless steel cylinder. When originally introduced, the Ruger LCR revolver was one of the most significant new revolver designs in over a century and it has since been awarded three patents.

In addition to 9mm Luger, the LCR double-action-only model also is available in .38 Spl. +P, .357 Mag., .22 WMR. and .22 LR. The exposed hammer LCRx™, which can be fired in double- or single-action modes, is available in .38 Spl. +P. All LCR models feature replaceable ramp front sights with white bar, and a fixed U-notch rear sight. Some models are available with Crimson Trace® Lasergrips® instead of the Hogue® Tamer™ Monogrip®, which comes standard.

why?

I wonder what the purpose would be for this configuration, unless someone is really adverse to stockpiling a different type of ammo or recoil? I have the LCR357 and can shoot a variety of off the shelf loads from "whiff" to "slam".

Also wondering if the moon clip can retain a .380/9mm kurz? That would be interesting ...

I would like to have one to "play with", but just can't justify the cost (yet). ;)

And loading with moon clips would be more gooder than any speed loader I've ever used. :jawdrop:

I'd be for it if only it had an exposed hammer.

Might be appealing to some shooters, but my LCR357 and LCRX has just about any situation covered. I might consider the 22lr or 22 mag version just to play with at the range.

oh oh I think Biker4fun is about to buy another Ruger. The only good point IMO to the 9mm is it can be much cheaper for practice shooting.

Well I was gonna get it and probably still will but I had to spring for the LCRx to match my lcr38 I already had. My opinion best carry gun on the market

I wonder would the recoil of the 9mm be about the same as the 38+P?

It would depend on the load. Shoot em up/target loads would be the lightest recoiling. ;)

I love it!

I didn't even know this version was on the market. I happened into my LGS last night and saw two LCRs with 9mm markings on the barrel. I couldn't believe my eyes.

The trigger was butter smooth, just like my 357 LCR.

What a great BUG this will make for my 9mm carry guns.
