I've had my 3" for 20 years. Just recently added a trigger job and hi-viz front side. Put cherry inserts in it when I first got it, but have never been happy with the grips. Bought some Badger grips and they splintered the first time I shot a .357 Magnum load. Sent them back and Jim refunded my money. I put Hogue combat grips on it but they seemed too large for CCW, so I just bought some Pachs. Interested in the mention of the Trausch grips because I'd not heard of those.

i heard i can get the sp101 custom fit for moon clips? but wouldn't this decrease firing performance?
Mine is a gemini custom....the fiber optic front sight is the best investment you can make in it for outdoor shooting fun...:)
In ALL the SP101 threads on ALL the gun blogs, ever heard anyone say anything bad about this Ruger?

I've never really been a revolver guy, but since joining this site I am lusting for a SP101 bad.............
love the gun, got mine last year, carry it all the time in the waistband with a cheap uncle mikes #15 holster made for a full size auto , but it fits my 3 inch 101 just as well. I changed out the factory grips for some houge grips and love them. I also changed out the hammer spring with a 9Lbs. one from wolf, real cheap just a few bucks, but made a big diffrence. finished it off by giving it a real nice polish with flitz metal polish took some time but man it looks great and fun to do.cell phone pics 248.jpg hope the picture works it is my first time post a pic.
