    Does anyone have a set of old wood S&W j-frame snub grips they want to get rid of? I want to put a set on my 442 for the old school look and feel.

    Top one is a 3" Ruger Speed Six .357. Six Shot 3" barrel was my primary for a long time. Bottom left is the SP-101 .357 I carried as a BUG. Bottom right is my wifes SP-101 in .38 Spl. Double action only it was a custom gun for a law enforcement agency in NY. It does not have the Ruger SP-101 marking on the barrel and on the left side of frame it is marked SPNY. The dealer did not know which agency it was for. It was bought NIB. We liked it so much it prompted me to get my 101 in .357. She wouldn't part with it. (Knife is Benchmade Griptillian with modified sheepsfoot and flashlight is a Palm Blaze 125 lumen LED I got off ebay. It does double duty as a Kubotan)



    Another view of the wheel Rugers.


    Great deal on the 3" Ruger Speed Six. Came from the US Postal Inspectors when they switched over to the Beretta 92's. Got it for $120. Discounted price because a group of us bought seven of them. My co-worker was an FFL and didn't charge us any fees. (Best armed ER in Missouri) They were all excellent guns with only a little use and slight holster wear. Came with Hogue Combat Grips. Still one of my favorite shooters.
    *************************************************
    SPNY is an OFFICIAL off-duty revolver for the NYPD. Hope that helped. Many friends carry one. I had Smiths(prior to the Glock transition)..but I did have a 357 Ruger Security-Six..a big cousin to that SPNY of your wife's.

    Here's my two. A circa 1953 Chief Spl. and a Model 638.

    So many cool snubs here. I'm really getting into the older snubs.

    I think I am ready to go 357 now. Any suggestions? I'm leaning towards fixing up my SP101 instead of buying something else.

    I really like my 340. It does have stiff recoil...but so light in the pocket or on the belt. If I were to change it would be a 640 or 60. That SP101 is a tank though.

    Hey Sixto;

    Your cool snubbie thread is coming up on its 2nd anniversary next month. You gonna do anything special?

    Fixing up the SP 101 sounds the most reasonable. What would you do to it?

    For an interesting .357 snub one doesn't see every day you could try a 2-inch Colt Lawman. Saw a couple of nickel ones on GunBroker, currently under $400.

    Sorta snubbie

    It's built on a J-frame, so I guess it qualifies as a snubbie:





    The 3" barrel gives a longer sight radius, and it changes the balance of the J-frame a bit, too, for the better. It's too big for the pocket, but a delight to carry on the belt. It might be the perfect carry revolver!

    Anyway, I hope you enjoy the pics.

    Wow, I didn't realize its been 2 years already. My SP101 has been sitting it a box for years. I don't think I've even shot it. If I did, it wasn't much.
    Anyway, I'd probably fit it with a A/O sight and some classy looking grips. I also really like the bead blast look of the Gemini Custom guns, so maybe I'd do that to get my thrills.
    I already added a spring kit and polished up the guts, the action is pretty darn smooth already.
