SWEET! Thats exactly what I want except in 327fed. I love the 3" SP101 with a hammer and hogue tamer grips. I checked out a couple of GP100s today and they dont feel near as good as a SP101 in my hands. I'm certain the 3" .327fed will be my next revolver. Good score!
I carry a .357mag because no one bickers about the .357mag being "enough".
Thanks! Literally feel like I stole it from the guy. Thing is brand new basically, came with everything from the factory. Looks as if from the factory too! Will run this weekend. Now for a holster :)

Love my sp101 talo sent to Teddy Jacobson Actions by T its like butter got grips from Gemini Custom man just a perfect fit they also are doing a S&W Mod 60 for me, both are great platforms you can depend on.
I always forget how much I love my sp101 until I shoot it. I was out squirrel hunting today with my 10yo son. We didnt see anything so we decided to shhot a few rounds throught the sp101. It was his first time shooting it. I let him use .38s in it. I Think he is hooked on it now.
...watched one at my local pawn and put it on layaway before anyone grabbed it...the short barrelled factory bobbed .357...ordered Pachmayr Compac grips and got it home last week...it replaced my SS 649 as BUG...
...had a 3" GP100 last year and loved the balance on that little fatty...this carries a bit lighter...only one gun I'd rather have and that's the Speed Six 2 3/4" SS...grandpappy to the GP...Ruger does revolvers right!!!
Snub44 I agree, one day I hope to pick up something from the "Six" series. I've been looking at those 3 inch gp100 for a bit also.
I just picked up my first sp101 last week. 2 1/4" 38 spl, looks like new, paid $449 for it. Got a meprolight tritium front sight coming for it. Was really looking for a 357, but couldn't pass this one up. They're pretty hard to find it seems like.
I went through a revolver binge a little while back and one of the ones that followed me home was an SP101 .327 Federal. Talk about punchy little round! That .32 caliber magnum is nothing to be trifled with. I carry mine in a Garrett Silent Thunder IWB and it is very comfortable to wear all day.
...I gave $500+tax for mine...would have been just as happy if it were a .38...it's not going to see any Magnum while I have it...the Rem R38S12 is my carry load...
