Every time I go to the gun store I wind up looking at the 3" wheel gun even when I am looking at the "newest greatest auto
And it was lead to a 3" model 19-4, a 3" model 64, and a relatively new 3" model 629 being added to my collection.
I just now bought a Ruger SP101 in 357 magnum with the 3.06" barrel.
It was just sitting there in the used case for $389.00 I fired 80 .357 magnum
Hornady loads and 100 Magtech .38 SPL loads. It ran perfectly.
Also, I usually use, like, and prefer all wood grips. So, it was odd for me to like a set of stock rubber grips, but I really like the of the
recoil with the full house hornady loads with these grips. My only complaint was the screw head sticking out of the plastic grip
insert and cutting my hand. Furthermore, the plastic inserts were nasty looking. Then I found these on gun broker and after a
short bidding war, here are the pics: (note the recessed screw head)
And I am amazingly more accurate with it than my 1.875" model 638; even
with full house 357 Mag loads.
This is a 15 yard group with 158 grain Hornady XTP loads:
