How about availabilityof the ammo? Four different rounds, it should be fairly easy to get.

Well, I bought some A-Zoom snap caps for it and put the hogue grip on it. The new grip feels considerably better. I also ordered a clipdraw to try out.

I'll post some new pics when I get the clipdraw and install it.

Goju, congrats on the new Ruger. Excellent choice. One day I plan on having one for my truck among other uses. Can't wait to read the range report.

What made you decide to change the grip? I didn't think the stock one was bad and my wife likes it so it stayed on(she claimed it anyway). I wouldn't mind trying some Pachmayr grips for when I want to shoot a good dose of magnums but she has small hands so I doubt it would work for both of us.

The grip that comes on them is a little small. The hogues are more comfortable and allow better pinky placement.

yeah, I noticed the same thing when handling the SP101.
When I get mine I'll probably have to do the same.
Do you have a part# that I may make note of? Or is there just one style hogues grip available for the SP101?

the grip fits me perfect, and i don't have small hands. the sp101 with 3" barrel is a perfectly balanced gun for me. good choice on this one is a sexy piece and goes bang everytime. perfect with .38 ammo for the wife to shoot. my favorite revolver, enjoy.

Four different rounds? He got a 357, not a 327.

I may have to jump on the SP101 bandwagon myself. I've liked them since they came out. Ruger is quality stuff, also. How about a pic of yours with the Houges, Goju??
