I'm pretty sure you'll really like it Dave. Being heavier than the J Frame makes it much more pleasant to shoot with .357 magnums.

I put the Hogue grip on mine. Made a world of difference with the magnum loads.

I think you made a good trade. The SP101 is rock solid and beautiful. I like Dr. Marneaus' SP101.

Just ordered a set of Hogue rubber grips for it as well as some mags for my Sig 228 (CDNN cheap weekend shipping). I'll be really glad when this week is over as my schedule will go back to normal and I actually may have time to get to the range. Even though I haven't shot this one yet, it's loaded with some .38 +P and is going in my truck today...

I think you made a good trade. You gave him a good gun and you got one in return. I love my SP.

another nice thing about it is you can have mucho fun with it at the range pumping cheap .38 spl. reloads through it.
