What do you guys think of it ? Handled one and it is ridiculously light , hammerless and would make a great carry revolver. My only concern would be that since its made of i belive polymer ? its a mosly plastic revolver, what do you guys think of the lifespan of the gun being that its plastic ?

I own one and like it. As far as it being plastic, the majority of the firearm is aluminum only the subframe and grip peg is polymer. I've taken it out to the range 5 times now and it seems sturdy. but we'll see as the round count gets higher.

It kicks like a mule, I did not get the crimon trace grips but I wish I did. I'm probably going to add them eventually.

Nice, so the LCR / LCR-LG is for LEO only ? its not on the list ? I saw one at a local FFL yesterday they dint mention anything about not being on the approved list.

When I bought it, it hadn't made the list yet. However, my understanding is that it is now on the Cal approved list.

I saw one at Ammo Bros and I think I saw one at the Oaktree Gun Club.
