      Any Ruger SP101 Fans here

      I bought my first Ruger SP101 about 18 months ago, since then I have purchased 2 more, one of which is the hammerless version. All three are the smallest barrel version. Anyone else here have this model.

      Hi PKO220. I don't have it anymore but I am going to pick up another one day. Mine went by the way side in a last mintue trade to get my wife a Colt she wanted real bad. I still got my Galco holster and C/T laser for it. In my book they are a great little revolver. Mine was also the 21/4" barrel version. Good luck with yours.

      Best,Baldy.

      Hello. Yes, definitely count me in as a fan of the SP101. I have but one, the 3 1/16" bbl version.

      Here is why I favor the little thing:

      big fan here too, i carry it almost every day. same version as above 2 1/4" bbl. i like the ruger revolvers in general, but the sp101 is my favorite. i do wish the made one in the same frame size only with a 4" barrel.

      My SP101 is on the way.

      I ordered a 3 inch 357 SP101 a week ago. I like the longer barrel, but it was a hard decision. I may end up with another one in 2". Ordered up a Simply Rugged Pancake holster for it Friday. Probably will be my CCW gun, even though I live in San Francisco. I will be moving soon.

      Other Rugers:
      New Vaquero 357 6 1/2
      Blackhawk 357 5 1/2
      P89
      P345
      Mark III 512
      10-22 Rifle


      Also:
      Kimber Custom II
      870 Wingmaster
      Browning BL22

      Only the SP101 is Stainless. Probably these next two will be also:

      Next up:
      Single Six
      Mini 14

      One a month, that's all I ask.

      I also have a 101. It is the DAO snubby in .357 magnum. I love it except for one or two things. First, I wish that it had the edges of the trigger guard and some other parts a bit more rounded. Some of those edges are just too sharp. Also, I could wish for six rounds instead of five, but then, that defeats the purpose of a snubby.

      I had a SP-101... I loved everything about it except the sights... For some reason I just couldn't get my eyes to adjust to it. If they came out with some other kind of sights for it, I would buy another one in a heart beat....

      I'va had my eye on that little hammerless one for some time. How does it shoot? I'm sure quality is not an issue. I have 4 of Bill Rugers children locked up in my safe and they are sweet.
      Enjoy all those Rugers PKO220!

      Purchased one last year with 2 1/4" BBL in 357 Mag. The trigger smoothed out after about 100 rounds. I like it as a carry gun as it fits my hand perfectly, points well and is accurate. I picked up holsters from Simply Rugger for both belt and pocket carry and also a Ken Null Vampire for horizontal carry while riding. Like all Rugers it's built like a mini-tank and will last longer than I do inspite a steady diet of full power loads.

      I have had a sp101 for over a year now. Have shot approx 500 rounds through it without a problem. it is a sweet shooting gun and built like a tank. My only regret is that i bought it in 38 special which is a great caliber, but if I would have purchased a 357 mag, I could have shot both 357 and 38,s. That decision was due to my inexperience in handguns. I bought the Ruger because of the favorable threads on forums like this one. The Ruger is my favorite revolver. i put on a hogue grip that fits my hand perfectly.
