My father won a LCR at a gun bash today, does anyone know if there are any aftermarket grips available. We are looking for wood grips or some other thinner smaller grips to pocket carry it a little more comfortably.

This gun is nice, but man the trigger is way stiff, much heavier than the ones I have seen at the local gun shows. Hopefully after a few hundred dryfires and some live rounds it'll lighten up. It is very easy to stage though. My dad already said he plans on carrying this more than his current CCW, a S&W Model 36.

I think Crimson Trace is the only one marketing grips for the LCR at the moment. You could ask a wood grip mfg to custom make them.

CT IS it. I just sold my LCR. I will buy one again, but not until there are some boot grips available for it. It's a good gun, and the Hogues are nice, but the LCR just isn't as "concealable" as a J-frame.IMO

We just got back from shooting the LCR for the first time, it looks cool, sights are nice, trigger is not as nice as other ones I have seen, its pretty heavy and stacks alot. The only drawback is the thing kicks a mule. Shooting our regular .38 practice loads, 148gr LSWC over 4.3gr of W231, it was more painful than shooting my 2.5" model 66 with full house .357 rounds. All the recoil goes straight to the web of the hand.

After 15 rounds, we finished up with my dads CCW he had on him, a S&W M36. Shooting the exact same rounds, it felt like a .22.

I like the gun, I think it looks pretty cool, but I think this ones going. A co-worker of my Dad has been looking for a small frame revolver, I think this ones gonna be his.

Mine has a great trigger and with standard loads, it is not bad to handle. I use mine as a BUG and I'm keeping it.

I read that someone had contacted Hogue about concealment grips and they were told to check with Ruger in 30-60 days. Apparently, thinner, less or non-sticky grips will be available for purchase soon!

Does anyone have any idea if these CCW grips are a reality?

I have no problem with the Hogue on my LCR, but I'm tagging this out of curiosity.

Check out Eagle Grips. Their Secret Service grip in rosewood is dead sexy. I'm going to get one when I pick up an SP101 in the next week or two.

Thanks. Ruger says it has narrower top to allow a speedloader to fit, have you tried it out?
