Ruger tells me the endshake on the LCRs is normal, due to play in the simple crane, and the cylinder assembly.
Just for curiosity, I called Ruger Newport today and asked to speak to a LCR technician. A tech wasn't available right then, so they had him call me back when he could. He told me the B/C gap on all LCRs was in spec if the forward and back was within .003 and .012. He said all of the endshakes ended up at .007 or .008, so now I know I'm good. I didn't get actual specs before.

I have an LCR review from American Rifleman that relates how nothing on the LCR is fitted, thanks to CNC parts. Makes sense that any measurement would be nearly identical on every LCR. They just assemble identical parts.

guess that is a big advantage to CNC as well as MIM parts.......and probably another reason why the LCR series is less expensive than the 101 series........

Love my 357 LCR.......now if they would just make a 3" magnum version LCRx........

Now we understand why the cylinder fit is a bit sloppy. I suppose to actually make it more dependable when SHTF.

I'd like the LCRx in .22.

Despite all the anguish that going to MIM p[arts caused when gun manufacturers started using them, have to say that I have noticed more consistency with the triggers on Rugers on the models they switched over to MIM. Ruger triggers used to be all over the map, one box to the next. Less so, now, with the MIM triggers.

well, i went ahead and did the "tell the ceo" thing on the ruger site and asked about a 3" magnum LCRx.

and he actually replied back in a few hours and this was his response.

There is no 3" LCR-X in the plans for 2017. Confidentially, we have been testing a snub-nosed LCR-X in 357 and may be able to bring one out in 2017. If that happens, then we could speculate there might be 3" model in 2018. There is a lot of guess work in that though.

Best regards,
Mike Fifer

Well, there went the "confidentially" part....the whole world can read it now.......

I've gotten back a couple of replies from Mr. Fifer. One was when I wrote him about how well Newport treated me on a repair/replace gun. He also sent me a signed "Thank you" card with the Ruger logo, and a special cap that wasn't sold by ShopRuger. No big deal, it's two shades of gray, with a wavy dividing line between the colors on the bill.

Second was when I suggested a break-top .22 revolver. He said something to the effect that he would put it on the list of models to consider.

He claims to read every one, and I believe it.
