...and the SP101 is all steel! Guess I'm just not ready for a plastic revolver.

I've got 2 S&W 686's and a 586. Ruger makes a good revolver also.

In my opinion a company should not produce something which cannot hold up to the task for which it is ment.
I've had my S&W Model 60 for over 20 years and I've shot literally thousands of 357 Magnums through it... NOT A SINGLE problem. My shooting buddy has a Model 60 too, same thing... thousands of 357's and no issues. There's just too much "hear say" on the J.
