Very Nice!! Very nice indeed!!
That's the best looking SP101 I've seen.
Maybe Ruger could take some tips from you.
Glad to hear it's working out for ya' on the range.

Thanks for the link. If I can talk my wife into letting go of mine I might be able to get a set. She hardly let's me take it to the range if she's not going.

"NEW & IMPROVED" is an oxymoron concocted by some marketing executives.

Haul that beauty out of conceal against a BG on a sunny day and you'll blind him, puts the advantage in your hands unless it blinds you in the process.

I got a pair of full sized badgers on my sp101, beautiful! And very comfortable to shoot.

Two questions:

1. How did you polish your 101? I wan't to do it to mine.
2. Where did you find the badger grips and how much were they?

I'm going to copy your gun because it looks fantastic but don't worry, mine has an exposed hammer to it won't be exactly the same.

Thanks for the post

Tack

haha, left the back of the frame and the hammer "less" polished, and didnt polish the top of the pistol at all. Kept it nice and machined!

Its all covered in here, in the first post i think. I used Mothers Aluminum and Mag polish, i got it at auto zone, and i did it by hand with a terry cloth and a super quick session with a dremel and felt wheel with the same polish, on the lowest speed.

Google badger grips, I think the website is badgergrips.com, it's posted in my comment up a few replies.

thanks for the comments!
