I still have the .38 version and you're right, the frame is aluminum (stainless on the .357), but everything you hold on to IS plastic. :-)
Yeah... I opted for the 38 version of the LCR myself rather than the 357. It would have made sense for me to buy the 357 since I already had the Smith 38. But I just couldn't see me realistically ever using a 357 load out of such a light gun.
I am looking around for a 357, or larger, revolver (I like revolvers) and I agree that a larger frame would be better.
Heck ... I was very tempted today at a gun show by a used Ruger 45 single action... Came very close to buying. Just didn't have a good feel for the cost or availability of Colt 45 ammo. ---- And these double action pistols with their swing-out cylinders making loading so much easier have kind spoiled me, maybe.
