ive complained about some of the unneeded features on my LC9....wishing they simply made a scaled up LCP was asking too much i guess. well i bought an LCR 22 today and what a disappointment with the trigger that ruger touts so much about. i got this gun because i wanted a .22lr snub for my daughter to train with, and for just over $400.00 who could ask for more? i mean its a ruger, name brand, quality reputation et cetera...... well their trigger design was suppose to improve this type of gun, and in my limited experience it did that only slightly so with the LCR 38spl ive shot. but the .22lr was suppose to be considerabley better than say a model 63 or 43 and so on, lets not kid ourselves with the C.A. and taurus guns. well, i guess i got a lemon because this LCR 22 has a stiff trigger, i dont have a trigger pull gauge but it is far more than any S&W centerfire J frame i have. the .22lr must have a stiffer trigger than centerfires to give it reliable ignition....but come on man, this thing is a far cry from what ive read and heard about. the trigger is smooth for sure, but lighter than other .22lr revolvers isnt even close with the one i bought. the gun is descent, quality, fitting, handling, all speaks well for ruger except the trigger pull. with that i am less than enthused. maybe after a few hundred more rounds it might start to lighten up? how many is required? i can tell you that 200 isnt enough. thats it, im done. thanks for letting me gripe.
