The .327 Federal Magnum is an excellent cartridge that when paired with the LCR makes an excellent self-defense revolver. It ships in a cardboard box enclosed in a padded soft case. While this may seem like a detraction, it's the only case I use that was shipped with the weapon. Out of the box the revolver is perfectly usable. The Hogue rubber grip is worlds beyond what S&W ships on their j-frames. One caveat to the grip, however, is that the rubber is prone to "catching" a cover garment. If your shirt is loose enough it will be no problem, but when pushing the bounds of IWB CCW (ie, tighter fitting shirt) it definitely grabs. The design of the frame is such that the grip fully encloses the metal. This means that your palm never contacts the frame. Brilliant. The j-frame design puts the metal backstrap right between your hand and the recoil of the round being fired. To mitigate this, you have to install a grip large enough to cover the backstrap which makes the overall size of the gun much larger. The Ruger design prevails here. I use a Hogue G10 grip on mine for a full 3-finger grip and to reduce the grabbing tendency of the stock rubber grip.
Trigger pull is very smooth and somewhat light for a revolver. I wish Ruger had used a heavier trigger return spring to combat the shooter's tendency to short-stroke the trigger, as the "reset" is at the beginning of the pull--like every revolver. The trigger on my j-frame pushes itself back out with a heavier spring. This of course would make the pull heavier.
Using .32 S&W or .32 H&R ammo, recoil is very minimal. Like shooting .38 wad-cutters. Full power .327 loads are a different story. Muzzle blast and recoil are very apparent with self-defense ammo.
The front sight is pinned in place so that it is easily removable. I installed a tritium night sight, but fiber optic is also available.
I have fired over 1700 rounds so far with no issues at all. A little surface rust developed near the muzzle because of sweat and humidity this summer, but everything else is in great shape.
- Really like this revolver
This pistol is very fun to shoot. I did not find the 327 Federal Magnum a problem to shoot. I found it easy to get back on target and not as snappy as other revolvers, such as the Ruger LCR in 9mm (another wonderful revolver to have and shoot). The trigger is smooth and the gun is a joy to fire. The revolver fits well in an Uncle Mike's number four holster and is great for pocket carry. Cannot say enough nice things about this Ruger LCR. In fact, the whole series of LCR revolvers are excellent for self defense and fun to shoot.
- Fun Snubbie
Just like the lightweight, small frame .357 Magnums, the full-power .327 Federal Magnum loads are quite loud and produce significant recoil in the LCR. However, the ability to shoot .32 H&R Magnum and .32 S&W Long cartridges in this gun make it pleasure to practice with at the range. Save your .327 Fed ammo for occasional shooting and self-defense.
- Wrong Description
Grabagun has listed the wrong description of this particular model. It use's a 'Stainless-steel' frame like the .357 and 9mm models. Not the aluminum frame listed here found on the .38 spl and .22 models.
From the Ruger web site:
Monolithic frame is made from aerospace-grade, 7000 series aluminum in .22 LR, .22 Magnum and .38 Spl +P models <p><b>and from 400 series stainless steel in the powerful .357 Magnum, 9mm Luger and .327 Federal Magnum models.</b></p>
- Powerful Revolver
Nice revolver. It's quite a handful with 327 Federal Magnum loads, but a nice shooter with 32 H&R Magnum and 32 S&W Long. Mine had to go back to Ruger because the cylinder would spin freely when closed. Ruger Service was excellent and sent me a free Fedex return label.
