Will do, probably be next weekend before I can get to the range, and if it is anything like my Blackhawks and red hawks, single-six and speed =-six it will be a great shooter

223Shooter and Farmerjohn, both of you guys made a fine choice. Ruger revolvers are well made, quality defensive weapons.

Congratulations. The 3" is my carry gun. At rugerforum.net theres an old gunsmith sells a book called the IBOK. Great resource for fine tuning your revolver.

Those snubbies always get fired about 20 rds. or so.....wiped down and put in a dresser drawer or glove box.
My guess is it is next to new and for $400 you made a sweet deal.
Search the shows and Gunbroker and see if you can find a comparable SP in .22.
We searched high and low and finally scored a fair deal for one on GB.....it makes high volume crossover practice affordable.

I have the GP100 4", but have been thinking about a SP101 for a lighter CC..

I like the 380's until I think about maybe having to use it, much better to have a 357 even if it is only 5 or 6 shots...

good luck with the new gun...

I shot my gp161 the other day and It shoots beutifully triger pull is crisp in both single and double action. and was a joy to shoot

the only negative of my shooting was over the course of shooting I noticed one of the cilinders had a hard time extracting and i mean hard time i eventually looked at te case and first I thought it was a pressure fracture as there were three vertical gouges going the length of the case after a little more shooting i noticed the same gauges in cases from that cylinder

upon closer inspection of the cylinder there are 3 burrs in it and when the case expands after firing digs in and when pushing out the case digs 3 deep gouges in the brass

I called ruger about it they said it wasnt really an issue just send it in and the turn around time for something like that is a week or two and there sorry i had a problem and they are glad i called

I have had several ruger firearms over the years and this is firs time i have ever had a problem with one but other than that its a rock solid performer

I bet that would be an easy remedy with some 800 grit and a wood dowel FJ.....that way you save the hassle of shipping and receiving.

Got me an SP-101 with the bobbed hammer as my EDC. Would like a GP-100 to go along with it.

if i had a camera that could show you what they look like youd agree sending it in and getting a new cylinder is best they look kinda like a small crack with raised area around them I do not have anything to zoom in to confirm it but its not someting im going to chance if rather just get the factory to take a look and fix it that way if it is possibly as bad as i think it could be they cant say home job gone wrong

that being said I did and still do have plans to polish the chambers but this is something im not dealing with

I bought a Ruger SP101 two years ago, I have put hundreds of rounds thru it, I carry it daily in my truck. Very sturdy, reliable, and has a good feel. Good choice. I also bought one for my nephew when he graduated from pilot school. He carries his daily while flying.
