2nd SP101
 
1 Attachment(s)
I really like the 2" SP101 I have and I'm a sucker for 3" revolvers - yeah, I got another one. For the price ($450) I just couldn't pass this one up. It came with box & papers, 2 holsters (paddle & IWB), 3 sets of grips (including the gorgeous Badger boot grips), 2 speedloaders, and 100 rounds of PMC .357 JHP. While the ivory polymer grips on the gun are perhaps the ugliest I've ever seen - they feel great in the hand. I'll probably put the Badger's on my 2" gun as they'll look great there...

Good find and great price for all of it Dave! I have a fondness for Ruger revolvers myself. Are you going to slick the trigger up & put a Wolff spring kit in it?

That was a good price for all of that Dave! Good looking Ruger SP, very nice find......again. :rolleyes:

As Bear asked, are ya gonna Wolf-kit it?

Gotta agree, those white grips are butt ugly. I wish my SP was a 3". (We need an envy smiley.) Those Badger grips sure look nice.

Yeah, I'll probably order Wolff kits for both of them. I dug out the magnifying glass and found out the ivory grips are made by Trausch and sold by the US distributor in Savannah. Supposedly great at controlling recoil - sure wish they would have been the black ones as they are seriously comfortable in the hand...

That is what Aluma Hyde 2 is for.

Love those 3" SP101's.

I have a 3" S&W 686+ and it's damn near the perfect revolver. The balance of this 3 incher is fantastic as well...

I'd almost trade my 19 for that(it pissed me off today). That is a great price for all of that and a great weapon.

My buddy had a 3" 686 back in the late 80s. It was su-weet! He had Robar do a full chrome sulfide job on it and it looked trick.
