It could just be the SP100...I don't know. I'd like to try the 686+ I showed and perhaps the S&W SSR. The grips on it look like it puts your middle finger knuckle further away from the trigger guard and it's a good looker to boot.

^^^+1 On my SuperRedHawk I had the same problem. My middle finger felt like someone was hitting it with a hammer. That was with the Ruger factory grips. I installed a Hogue Mono Grip and the problem was gone. AAA for the Hogue Mono Grip..

I put on the Crimson Trace LG111. Problem solved and better control along with a lazer.

I come across that problem as well when I shoot my dad's Model 29 in .44 mag. I think you may just have to concentrate on changing your grip. I found that the trigger guard whaks the top of your knuckle when the gun returns to your normal grip after recoil. Might be something as simple as gripping the gun harder with your off hand wrapped around the outside of the fingers on your right hand (assuming you shoot right handed. Vice versa if not).

I have a S&W 586 (blued model of the 686). I shoot it often and never had that knuckle bumping issue. Several people have shot it and never mentioned that knuckle bumping issue. All I can add is check your grip (not the gips on the pistol, your hand placement).

I think the main problem is the stock SP101. I solved that problem today...bought a Glock G30. Maybe next time I'll pursue a pre lock 686+ 3".

A Glock over a Smith and Wesson??? Man I hope you already have a safe full of .357s in order to justify that decision. . .

Yea a Glock might be the right choice for you.
