Ruger 2018 Handguns

LCR .22WMR

Ruger tends to launch new products anytime it feels like it, but here are a few notable mid-year introductions you might have missed. The 3-inch-barreled LCR in .22 WMR should be a great trail or kit gun for the camper. It weighs only 17.8 ounces and holds six .22 Magnum cartridges. The same revolver is also available with a more compact 1.87-inch barrel. MSRP: $579

Features

  • High-strength stainless steel cylinder is extensively fluted (reducing weight) and features a PVD finish for excellent durability
