I have never been the type of guy who could leave well enough alone, and the purchase of my new SP-101 gave me th opportunity to make plenty of changes.
I began work on my new Ruger by doing a complete trigger job to smooth and lighten an otherwise crumby trigger. By polishing all the essential trigger and hammer components, I was able to utilize the 10lb Wolff hammer spring and the 8lb Wolff trigger return spring. My ignition is 100%, my trigger returns are fast and crisp and my DA/SA trigger weights are perfect.
For better target acquisition, I added the MePro night sights, and I have to say that anyone with an SP-101 really needs to invest in these sights.
The grips that come with the SP-101 are alright, but I think that the Hogue grips really tame the recoil of the full-power .357's. This is another essential upgrade for anyone who just can't enjoy the kick of the mighty .357 magnum.
To rid myself of the ugly owner's manual that Ruger feels we all need on our firearms, I did a complete shine job on my pistol. This included shaving material from the barrel to remove the roll marks, deburring all the sharp edges and buffing the whole pistol to a mirror shine.
I'm now content!
