Had them for awhile now but wanted to get some things done.

Switched the grips, both got reduced power trigger return/latch springs and reduced power hammer springs. My buddy tried out the .327 trigger and stated he didn't think a Ruger could be that smooth.

Fully reliable so far!

I haven't done much with my SP-101, but with new springs and a little polishing, the trigger in my GP-100 is by far the best trigger I've ever pulled on a Ruger.

I actually missed seeing this thread for five days? :eek: I really like that .22 Jon! Let me know when you get tired of it. ;D

I've had my SP101 for about a year and a half, still love it.

Shoot about 2-300 rounds a month in it.

However, Roe showed me his Smith 19 and it was really classy, just like the pics he's always posting!

You probably couldn't understand him, with that thick accent. ;)

These are stout little guns that fit the hand well and just feel good.



In any caliber or barrel length- the 101's are fun and useful.

I love my SP101. I haven't done a thing to it. It works just fine as is. Trigger is crisp and breaks clean. Maybe a little stiff for target work but probably just right for its intended purpose. I don't believe in light springs in stressful situations.

Matter of fact I have two SP101's now as I put out the work and two different friends came up with one so I felt obligated to buy both of them.
Going to sell one of them.

Well, John, since I have SP101-itis, what caliber are you going to sell?

Last time I walked into the gun pusher's they had sold the SP101 in 9mm.

Good thing too!

Well, it is a darn good thing we put the reduced power hammer springs on them.

Our daughter blasted through half a brick today, her hand isn't big enough for D/A nor strong enough to cock the hammer on her own. That's a LOT of thumbing back the hammer!

BTW, not one FTF with either Remington or Federal AE!

I had one, it smacked a bone in hand pretty good so I put a Hogue on it figuring that would fix everything. Made no difference, only wheelgun I've ever had that the monogrip didn't feel nice with. I've never read anyone else complain about it - guess it just doesn't fit me.
