    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.

    I have the Gp100 for a range gun, and i carry it sometimes. Me and my wife bought her dad an Sp101 and he carrys his all the time. The Sp101 is a better carry gun because of the weight/size and the Gp100 is better for a range gun because of the weight and size. All depends on what you need the firearm for. Cant go wrong with either.

    I have one I bought used, it was a great purchase. The previous owner had the trigger work and glow dot sights installed along with the hogue grip. It's a great firearm I would recommend it to anyone.

    I couldn't wait to get mine. Already had the Hogue grips waiting, but put 100 rounds through it before I got it home. Solid gun. Stock grips are the only weakness in my opinion.
