About the Handgun:
The Ruger LCR is a double-action-only revolver that incorporates many features found in the SP101, GP100 and Super Redhawk revolvers, as well as several new features. The patent pending fire control housing incorporates the same grip extension as the SP101, GP100, and Super Redhawk revolvers. The craned cylinder assembly of the LCR locks into the frame in the rear of the cylinder and at the front via the ejector extension. The internal parts are installed through the top of the fire control housing or through the bottom in back of the frame. Therefore, no side plate is needed.
About the Manufacturer:
Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. is the leading independent producer of firearms in the United States. Sturm, Ruger designs, manufactures, and markets a full line of pistols, revolvers, rifles, and shotguns, primarily for sporting purposes, but also for law enforcement and military agencies. Formed in 1949 by Alexander Sturm and Bill Ruger the company has had long and continued success, taking its place among the classic names of U.S. gunmakers.
About the Cartridge:
Smith & Wesson introduced this cartridge for its heavy-frame revolver. Ammunition was developed by Winchester in cooperation with Smith & Wesson. Using a lengthened and strengthened version of the .38 Special case, the .357 Magnum was rapidly accepted by hunters and law enforcement. At the time of its introduction, it was claimed to easily pierce the body panels of automobiles and crack engine blocks. While it has less power than the .44 Magnum, it compares favorably to the 10mm Norma and .45 ACP, but with better armor penetration. Today factories offer over fifty different loadings in this caliber.
