    I was thinking of putting the XS Big Dot on my LCR .357, but it looks to me like it could possibly snag more then the factory sight would during a draw.

    Anybody try out this sight on an LCR?

    I installed the XS Big Dot on my Ruger KLCR about 6months ago, and love them. Actually, my accuracy increased after finding out to "cut the Big Dot in half" with the rear sights (not the actual correct rear sight for BD) COVER the intended target with the BD, and, Bingo!, dead on. The ammo one uses also may play a part in accuracy and POI. Take care. Also, found no difference as far as "snagging" or holster draw impeding with the XS BD.

    I have the XS Big Dots on my Ruger SR40C. It took me a few mags to get used to its point of aim. My stock sights were set to 6:00 the XS need to cover target

    Put the XS Standard Dot on my LCR 357 a few months ago, and it took me a few rounds to get the right read on mine also. At first, I was shooting high until I adjusted my POA. Now I'm used to it, and it seems target acquistion is much easier with the dot vs the stock front sight.

    I have a LCR & LCRX both short barrel. I installed the XS front sight on my LCR & the dot has to be on top of the rear groove, not in the groove. Pretend the groove is filled & line up the dot on top. I also found out that the sight will not work on the LCRX because the top of the barrel is different. Its taller and will make your poi about 6" low. I called XS Sights and talked to a tech and sent pictures. He said its RUGERS problem.

    any bore sight that I've seen is too long for the short-barreled LCR
    My wife accused me of being immature.
    I told her to get out of my fort.

    I don't think that any bore sighter is going to work as expected with a handgun because there's recoil action even during the time the bullet is being driven down the barrel. That recoil changes with bullet weight and velocity.

    I thought xs recommended the standard dot and not the big dot for the LCR?

    New owner of a LCR. Never shot one but bought a LCR in 9. Got over zealous and purchased XS sights for it but come to find out that it doesn't working for a 9mm/22LR/22MAG. Why? Should I send them back for a refund or install them and try to shoot it to see how to adjust to the sight to hit anytime? Thank you.
