    Ruger SP101 w Crimson Trace

    I'm thinking of putting a Crimson Trace on my Ruger SP101, especially with them being on sale at Ruger for $169 plus a $50 mail in rebate. My question is, did you have to modify your holster? From the pictures it appears the laser comes all the way to the cylinder. On my two leather holsters, this wouldn't work. Just curious if anyone modified to make it work, or perhaps you have a holster that fits.

    Must not be a popular accessory for the SP101. Maybe I will pass..

    You should not have to modify your holster. The laser really doesn't stick out too far. I would think there would be more of a problem with a kydex holster. I use a Don Hume JIT without problem.

    Does it stick out farther than the cylinder?

    With a leather holster, I do not think you will have a problem. I have a CT laser on my SP101, and I think it is a worthwhile addition, but I must admit I really loved the feel of the Hogue grips that I used to have on the gun. The CT overmolds are similar to Hogues, but pricey. I carry it in an AJConcealco leather holster.

    My J frame smiths with and without CT laser fit exactly the same in my holsters... i dont think you will have much of a problem. As far as i am concerned, lasers are a good thing. If you have allready learned to shoot your Ruger well without it, adding it will only help IMHO. Remember, the CT red laser cannot be seen well outside during daylight hours, but they really come alive at night. Bunker

    Yep, I've shot my SP101 hundreds of times. I have a meprolight front sight as well. Mainly looking at them because I can get the rubber overmold version for $119 after the $50 rebate.
