I own an LCR in .38, and when I got the email about the LCRx all I could say is you could of done that last year. If so, I would of bought the LCRx. So I looked all over for one in a store, and when I found one, I changed my mind. The hammer is very small, and the spring is so stiff that I did not like it. It would really be a task to pull that back in a hurry. So I am real happy with my LCR just the way it is.
