Default Ruger Sp101 .22LR

It was a rumor for awhile of Ruger re-releasing the sp101 in .22LR,Guns and Ammo magazine mistakenly said it was coming out last month I think it was,but now it's official,they have released the sp101 in .22LR and it looks quiet beautiful with the 4.2" half lug barrel,msrp is set at $675 which means I could get it for probably a little over $500,and if it's a good gun I'd consider it over a S&W .22DA revolver seeing as they can run upwards of $800-$900 out the door.What do you think of this gun?

Don't get me wrong, I own Ruger wheel guns and like them. My LCR is my summer EDC.

But.......should it come to a .22 rf wheel gun, I'd go with the 10 rd Smith.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

I own a Smith 17, but this Ruger is very intriguing.

IMO It is a unnecessary addition to their line. They already have a 22 revolver...and I don't see the need for this. The SP is best as a CCW and it will never be an excellent target/plinking 22 IMO.

I know that if/when I get an SP101 it won't be in a 22lr. My two bits...
