I recently bought an LCR in 22lr. and so far I love it for plinking. Trigger is heavy because its rimfire but still pretty smooth.

The 22wmr case is larger diameter than the 22lr. That makes spacing in the cylinder tighter - so ... use the 6 shot spaces - no trouble.

The LCR is a good shooter. It softens the 38 Special recoil of the very simialar S&W Airweight 38's. It's Hogue grip wraps all the way around the backstrap giving a cushioning that the S&W doesn't have. The S&W is a little unpleasant to range shoot. The LCR .. softer. I own both.
This "taming" of recoil of the 38 will be lost on the 22's though.
The LCR has a very smooth trigger - recognized by most who shoot the gun.
It's a good one. You should like it...

I will be interested to hear how they shoot when someone gets one. I have a .38 and my only complaint is the trigger pull seems really long. That's not a deal breaker, but I noticed it.

I just ordered one through my local dealer and can't wait to get my hands on it. I already have an LCR 22 so the Magnum will be a good conpanion piece. I'll post a review after I get it.

i would love to see chronograph data on it and the same length barrel in a 22lr. im betting the 22lr has more muzzle velocity.

A comparison would be interesting. The main advantage I see is the fact that the 22 Magnum has better bullets like Critical Defense, Gold Dots and PDX1s.

i think some companies are loading 22wmr with pistol friendly powder now too.

They aren't even close with the magnum over 300 fps according to ruger stats
