View Full Version : Ruger LCR melting

I've been considering an LCR as my next purchase. Looking at stuff on youtube I found this:


Do any of you guys with LCR's have this problem?

Not me. My LCR has been flawless. My understanding regarding this issue is that it is just one of those things that crops up with wheel guns from time to time. If you get a LCR or S&W 442 (or whatever) ... take it out and shoot a hundred rounds or so. If it does not exhibit some evidence of flame cutting right off the bat (and odds are that it won't) you're good.

I've fired well over 1,000 rounds through my LCR. No problems whatsoever. But then, my practice ammo is a light .38 Spl round. When I use it for carry, I put the +P's back in there and sometimes shoot a handload that approximates my carry rounds.

wow looks like it needs a little steel shield like the smith and wessons

That video is old. Read the comments on it and see what kind of ammo was he shooting through his lcr. There are a bunch of video responds to that video.
