This is a discussion on Ruger LCR within the Wheelguns forums, part of the Other Handgun Talk category; I love my LCR. It goes bang every time. Easy to carry, easy to conceal. Not the most pleasant gun to shoot, but that's why ...

I love my LCR. It goes bang every time. Easy to carry, easy to conceal. Not the most pleasant gun to shoot, but that's why I got mx XD. Once question though. How do you deal with the black front site shooting at a black target? I know the LCR is not a target gun, but I just lose the front site in the target. Has anyone modified the front site to be a different color?

welcome to the forum.

easiest option I can think of to help your front sight is a Sharpie paint pen.

get the oil based kind...it will with stand wear, etc, fairly well, but will remove easily with solvent when you clean the gun [in fact, you'll probably have to re-apply it after every cleaning, but it's still much easier/cheaper than installing a new sight].

these pens are also great for marking mags.

hope this helps...

I Paid $399 for mine last week, brand NIB, (regular grips, not the Crimson Trace Laser grips). The model I have retails for $525, IIRC.

+2. I agree with all of the above. Love the pull the trigger and it goes bang everytime factor as well. Kicks pretty good with +p but that is to be expected. Also much nicer to carry for size factor vs XD .45.

One complaint. Does everyone else's have a slight jingle when you walk? Almost sounds like I'm wearing spurs in the old west....just wondering if there is anyway to get this to stop?

That's the Ruger Rattle--quite normal on nearly all DA Ruger revolvers. It's the transfer bar safety.

transfer bar safety? so incase you drop the firearm this prevents it from going off?

Do S&W j frames do this? I wonder what the designe difference is if they do not...

If I remeber correctly, in order for a Ruger to fire, a transfer bar is moved into place between the hammer and the firing pin so the strike is delivered to the primer. On a Smith & Wesson the firing pin block is pulled out of the way when the trigger is pulled back. Both are means to prevent the gun from firing by being dropped or by receiving a blow to the hammer.
