HGR 064 - Entering the Model 66 World & The Ruger LCR 9mm

Hello and welcome to Handgun Radio! I’m your host Ryan Michad from the wilds of Central Maine, and this is your home for all the news, information and discussion in the handgunning world. This week, I’m joined by TJ to discuss his entrance into the S&W Model 66 World, as well as the newly announced Ruger LCR in 9mm and the Sig-Sauer P220 in 10mm!

Brought to you by the Firearms Radio Network

Gonna skip the week in review this time around, as the main topic is pretty much the week in review. We will discuss TJ’s new gun purchase!

Main Topic: Entering the Model 66 World & The Ruger LCR 9mm

The Model 66:

-Introduced in 1957 and Produced through 1999

  • Built on the K frame and produced in 2.5”, 3” (rare), 4” and 6” barrel lengths.

Ruger LCR 9mm:

-17.2 Ounces

-6.5 inch length

-1.875” barrel

-Includes 3 moon clips

-MSRP: $599.00

-Looks like they’ve gone with a blued finish on the 9mm, rather than the stainless steel finish you see on the .38 Special and .357 Magnum guns.

-Interested to see if you can shoot .380 ACP in it.

Sig-Sauer P220 10mm:

-Announced over at Modern Weapons

-Sig-Sauer P220 in 10mm originally a custom build by Bruce Gray of GrayGuns Inc.
