The 22 WMR seems like a good idea. I like the idea of the 22lr as well for cheaper practice. The 357/38's are also nice, light, accurate guns.

Actually you should not shoot 22lr in a cylinder designed for 22wmr. They are not the same diameter case. Guns that shoot both have two different cylinders. The Ruger doesnt have a second cylinder does it?

No I was just talking about the other model in 22lr. That would be awesome if they did offer a swappable cylinder though.

I wonder why Ruger made it a 6 shot instead of an 8 shot like the .22LR LCR?
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 would love to see chronograph data on it and the same length barrel in a 22lr. im betting the 22lr has more muzzle velocity.
