First Look: Crimson Trace ShockStop System

Gun Digest received an exclusive first look at the new Crimson Trace ShockStop system during the 2016 SHOT Show in Las Vegas. Watch the video to learn more and to see a demonstration of the product.

Another entry in the packer/kit gun is Ruger’s LCRx 3-inch. Last year Ruger brought out an exposed hammer version of their very successful LCR line. At 15.7 ounces in .38 Special +P, the LCRx 3-inch revolver is accurate and small enough for almost any purpose. Double-action trigger pull on the LCR has been excellent from the beginning, but the added accuracy potential of the 3-inch barrel, combined with adjustable sights and a single-action trigger, make this an impressive little gun for general outdoor use. It’s something that should be a valuable addition to any kit bag. The LCRx 3-inch is available in a matte black finish only. ($549; ruger.com)

There may not be as many revolver companies cranking out new designs each year as their high-capacity semi-auto counterparts, but revolvers still command a loyal following.
