    RUGER SP101 , .327 Magnum Problem

    Have a problem from time to time with my SP101: hammer will not cock. It takes several tries and it finally unlocks. Never came upon this before. Any helpful ideas? Thanks in advance.

    That sounds like a trip back to Ruger is in order. They have good CS, so it shouldn't be a hassle.

    does it seem like the cylinder is binding in general? my sp101 in .357 will act similarly if there happens to be some un burned powder or other grit under the shell extractor. not sure if it is a similar symptom..

    Before sending it off and if you haven't already, tear it down and clean it. Your manual will tell you how if you haven't done it before and it is simple. Unburnt powder and grit and cause what you are experiencing.
