    5 Star Firearms SP101 Loader

    This post was brought to our attention recently. We strive to have every customer be satisfied with their purchase. Woodsong, we don't know if you purchased a defective loader, but this model, .38 SPL./.357 J-Frame Accessories, was designed to work specifically for the SP101. If there are after-market grips, the loader may not ALWAYS have enough clearance. Please get back with us, admin@5starfirearms.com, and let us know when you purchased and what model loader you received. Though it doesn't happen often, you could also have received the wrong loader as two of our loaders are almost identical. Thanks and we hope this clears things up.

    Welcome rvlvr_man. Please post an intro in the New members section and tell us about yourself. I'd like to hear how you decided to get into the speed loader business.

    Beauty! I really want to add a 3" model. I carried mine all day yesterday and I'm about to pack it now on my way to breakfast.
    I carry a .357mag because no one bickers about the .357mag being "enough".

    I've heard some comment on how heavy the revolver is, but having carried either full sized or "mid sized" semis, this particular wheelie doesn't feel bad at all. I've got some 5Star speed loaders coming that I can't wait to work with and I've got a Simply Rugged Silver Dollar pancake holster ordered. All in all, I'm really sorry I've waited this long to get into the revolver carry club!

    Compared to my Sigs, this thing is really light!

    I mostly carry an LCR. Nice thing is, I can carry either the LCR or the 2" SP101 in the same holster. The Don Hume J.I.T. slide. My favorite holster for the LCR or the Kahr PM9.

    Kinda funny you say that, at the moment I only own Sigs and revolvers!

    I use 2 holsters

    Depending on whether IWB or OWB. I use the simply rugged pancake for OWB and this for IWB (Garrett industries solo). I highly recommend the solo. It is one awesome holster. It has a cloth backing with padding next to your skin for comfortIMG_0618__34958_1348063040_220_220.jpg

    Cool

    Hope your enjoying your SP-101

    The Side Guard Quick Clip works very well for AIWB for me when I carry my SP.

    Got my order from 5 Star Firearms today! Fantastic product! Working with dummy rounds getting used to using the speed loaders-I am really liking the counter clockwise release! That really does help facilitate a quicker reload.

    The 686+ is a good choice but it must be annoying if you're speed loading! You still get 6 shots, but not the 7th

    The 4'' barrel was perfect when I shot the 686. Any more might be overkill, and any less might kick the recoil up too much. As it was the thing barely moved in my hands for .38spl and only some for .357.
    I have several 7 shot HKS speedloaders for my 686+.

    I don't carry it all that often, but I have an SP101 in 327 Federal that rides in a Garrett Silent Thunder holster on occasion. Very comfortable to carry and with two speed strips worth of extra ammo, I don't feel the least bit under gunned.
