If you read my last article about the ongoing battle with the LCR, you’ll remember that I wished I could find a pair of stocks that I loved. Well, I think I finally have. This is the Hogue Monogrip for the LCR, sans fingergrooves. It really ties the gun together. This LCR throws wadcutters through the same hole, so I’m really glad that I found something I could really get a good hold on. The grip angle feels far more like a pistol in general, and this set of stocks makes it feel even moreso. I’m a surgeon…I can’t be needlessly battering the heck out of my hands.
If you’re a pocket carry guy (I’m not, really) then obviously these stocks will be way too big for that mode of carry, unless you’re Paul Bunyan. I carry my revolvers at 12:30 AIWB, or at 4:00, and the stock length doesn’t matter so much there. These are really grippy, too. But I imagine they’ll, “dumb,” down a bit after rubbing against the firehose material of my jacket.
So, NOW the real testing of the Ruger LCR can begin. Stay tuned.
