Ruger SP-101 question
I purchased an sp-101 last month and I think it is a great gun. But, I do have a question. I recently noticed that when I open the cylinder, the extractor rod has some play or shakiness to it if you jiggle it. Is this normal, and I just didn't notice this when I bought it, or is this some kind of problem? Thank you.

Something is very, VERY, VERY wrong with that SP101. You should immediately sell it to me at a substantially deep discount. Your life is in immediate DANGER!
Nope, honestly, don't worry about it. Everything's fine.

I'll add - ''irritatingly'' normal
When used to Smith ejector rods these Rugers really seem sloppy .. enough that they rattle. However - seems thus far for me over years with Rugers to not be a problem.

Mine's the same way. Works fine.

My wife's has the same play.
If you don't protect your self, who will?

Thanks for the replies. I feel better knowing it's normal. P-95 is correct in saying:" If you're used to Smith ejector rods......" I've only owned Smith revolvers, and they are rock solid.

My wife's has the same play also. Not an issue, Rugers are built like tanks.

Mine WAS like that too
and it probably still is.
I bought her this past April, just had the action tuned by T in Texas and put a set of Eagle Secret Service grips on her and she got stolen
Yours wouldn't be second hand, target gray, and wear a pair of checkered Eagle grips would it? (only 75% kidding LOL!)

wasn't the point of it so that, unlike Taurus/Colt/S&W ejector rods, the ejector rod on the Ruger wouldn't back itself out and jam the cylinder?
Mine has that "looseness" too. I was concerned, at first, but I've come to terms with it...

Designed that way; different...but the way it's intended to be...
I sure enjoy shooting mine....
