    Still waiting for an SP101 I ordered...

    Fellow DCers,

    I ordered a new SP101 DAO 2 1/4" .357 mag and it's been 1.5 months and my gun shop says there are no news...

    Looked at the online places and they have been out for a while... Has anyone been able to snatch one of these lately?

    Your not the only one looking at a long back order.

    I ordered a Colt Commander back in January and now I'm being told that it maybe two to four months before it arrives.

    With the surge of new purchases in the last few months, the manufacturers are all or almost all in catch up mode.

    As of about a week ago, there was still a spurless hammer version sitting at a local Ace Hardware here in CO.

    Ace Hardware sells guns there? Heck, they barely sell screwdrivers here. I'm glad to see a good old fashioned hardware store is alive and well somewhere.

    I waited on a list for several months for my Ruger LCP. No, I have not seen any SP101 DAOs lately at any gun shop around here.
    God bless our troops!

    There is an SP 101 at my local P&G and has been there for a few weeks. I believe it's used.
    I haven't looked at it but can when I go there at lunch.

    Edited to add: I looked at it and it is used and very clean. They have $470 on the tag.

    I'm on day 15 of my wait for a Bersa Thunder CC that I ordered. I don't expect a call anytime soon.

    At least a dozen SP-101's in 357 mag on Gunbroker.com (Be sure to type in the search Ruger SP101... Do Not type in Ruger SP-101 or Ruger SP 101 or you won't get as many returns!)

    And several more in other calibers.

    One of my local shops has two DAO SP101s in stock even as we speak. They are out there.

    Collectors Firearms in Houston had one with the 3"+ barrel in their case a few weeks ago, and it sold in a couple of weeks. I had almost bought it, as it had a really nice trigger. Then, they set out another, and it had an even better trigger; I bought it Monday. Life is good! I had three of the snubbies already, and had long wanted a 3"+ SP101, too.

    They usually keep the 2.25" snubbies in stock, but not lately, except for a couple of used ones that recently sold.

    galleryofguns.com is a major Ruger distributor, and they show no SP101s in stock, in any configuration, at present. Hmm. In case anyone does not know, this is Davidson's website.
