I just ordered one. Any thoughts on the pistol or LCR line? I've read some good reviews and am looking forward to shooting it!

The long cases of .22M can cause extraction issues, especially with a snub. Ruger went for reliable extraction over higher capacity.

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.

I'm thinking its going to be a really fun gun to shoot! Maybe even a great pocket gun!

22 mag is nothing to sneeze at, should carry quite well.

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

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 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
