I've had a 3" SP101 for several years. It pretty much shoots where I'm looking with .38 Special or .357 Magnum ammo (even CCI Blazers). At SD ranges (21 feet), I have acceptable groups with full-power ammo shooting fast DA. I love this little wheelgun!
I also think the SP 101 is an excellent carry piece. My personal carry piece is the 3" GP 100 with fixed sights. I know it is kind of big and heavy, but I like the extra heft as it makes a dandy impact weapon in a pinch!
Wow, Kevin, that is a great looking piece. As comfortable as the Hogue grips are I am definitely looking for some good looking wood.
I love the wood grips but they don't absorb the recoil as much!!
Excellent revo - mine was carry for many months. I added CT's which do, rather like wood grips, make for a bit less shooting comfort but I found the addition made for a most compact and versatile platform. That gun still goes in truck at times.

My 3" SP101 seems to like both Remington 158 grain SWCHP +P .38 Specials and Remington 125 grain .357 Magnum Golden Sabers.
Nice wood inserts!! Looks great!!

Catbird, What are the slots on the back of your cylinder for? I circled them in the pic below.
Isn't that just the extractor?
You can see it quite clearly without cartridge cases filling up the headspace.
It DOES look peculiar, but it is just the extractor. Here's a different angle:

That makes sence, not usto seeing one empty.
