Finally a Ruger LCR in 22 Magnum
 
Just like the title says. I have been waiting on this since they introduced the LCR!!!

I normally try not to be critical of other's choices but in this case I'd think you'd gain more muzzle blast than increased performance. No way that 1 7/8" in barrel will exploit the performance of the .22 Mag. Don

I'd buy one in a heartbeat if they made them with a .22lr cylinder as well!

I Love the .22WMR!!!!

I think this would be perfect for my wife to carry in her new CCW purse.

Very interesting little gun indeed!

LCR in 22lr is eight shot. Why 22mag is six? Looks like there is a lot of metal between chambers there. They could have made it seven shot.

Also. Shooting 22lr from 22mag revolver should be safe. Right?

Awesome. Another Rimfire "carry gun". Just as poor a choice as all the rest but at least this one is new.

Like the Single 6. With longer barrel options that would be cool.

I was thinking the same thing. There is very limited use for this, and much better choices.

For the very recoil shy, or arthritic......there is a need.

It doesn't even have the novelty to it, like a NAA mini, or a Beretta 21a........

NO!:wavey:

that is why the single 6 Ruger includes 2 cylinders, 1 for each caliber.22 LR in a .22 magnum is a huge no-no!

I read Ruger found 6rd was optimal for extraction with the LCR 22mag.

In the 22lr version the trigger pull suffered (which is a huge selling point), because of the increased round count.:wavey:

No.
The bullet is very close to the same diameter, but the shell case is not.

The 22 magnum bullet is inside the case like a centerfire bullet. The 22 magnum case is tapered.

The 22LR is "heeled" - the narroe part in in the case; the part outside the case is the same diameter as the case. the case is not tapered.

.22LR vs .22WMR
.223 bullet dia .224
.225 neck dia .240
.225 base dia .241
.275 rim dia .291
.040 rim thick .046
.590 case length 1.052
.985 total length 1.350

The trigger pull on the 1 .22lr lcr I have shot was horrendous.

It Belonged to an elderly woman student, she could barely pull the trigger with both her index fingers.
