[ shot the SP Today. Shot 40 rounds of FMJ 357 mag loads!! A lot of thunder in that little gun!! Wasn't expecting quite the kick! I guess That's what small frame mags do!! Probably stick to mostly 38rounds for practice!! Cheaper a little softer and I can image a little more pleasant to shoot!

Ruger has fiber optic sights on their webpage. You will need the proper vise or clamp to press the sights into the dovetail. It is very difficult to just tap a sight into the dovetail with a hammer without damaging the gun.

Ruger SP101s are like Browning Hi-Powers in that they are great out of the box but for lousy triggers. Good trigger jobs turned both my SP101s into enjoyable-to-shoot gems.

nosreme, this is true. I had the trigger job done on my SP 101 so long ago that I had forgotten about doing it.

The sp101 front sights are not dovetailed in. They are slotted in and held in by a roll pin. Be sure to use a roll pin punch and not a regular punch. Its a pretty easy process. I used a little blue loctite on the sight when i put it in also.

Gee, if you read this tread top to bottom SP101 doesn't sound all that great. Other than sights, grip, and trigger, it's a great gun LOL. I love my SP101 3" .357 magnum revolver. And I did change the grip.

Hard to go wrong with a Ruger revo. They are built like tanks and can take the full house load without getting sloppy. They are plenty accurate and the triggers are not too bad. Single action they are great. The DA is a little rough but it works out in time for the most part. I liek my Smiths more but I'd have no problem owning a(nother) Ruger revolver.
