Please use the "search" up above. Put in Ruger SP101 and you will get a lot of information. It's scattered all over the forum so I can't link you to any particular thread. It gets very good reviews from those who own one.

I have the SP101. It is built like a tank, and a great shooter. It is heavier than other similar 5 shot revolvers, but that's not a bad thing for a magnum. If it has the stock grips, I recommend you swap them out with a Hogue Monogrip.

Ruger is, in my opinion, the very best revolver there is. One piece construction and a work horse. Treat a Ruger right and your great grandchildren will be shooting it 100 years from now.

^^^^^^ this. I have the sp101 also. This is dead on. Running a box of .357 through it with stock grips will beat you up a bit. Still fun.

I agree, I've shot both a good amount and I just plain like 6 shots over 5. If you don't care about capacity as much, then I find nothing wrong with the sp 101.
