If i hear it one more time
It seams like every single video or article I see or read they say this at some point when talking about the Ruger SP101.
Now dont get me wrong I love this gun and have it in the 3" version. It is one of my most favorite guns I own and will never get rid of. I have spent hrs hand polishing it inside and out, changed out the trigger and hammer springs and bought custom grip inserts for it as well, it looks beautiful and goes bang every time but I cant stand that stupid phrase lol. Yes it is strong and rugged some might say overbuilt but something about that phrase gets me. I think it is because every single person that says it head someone else say it and so they use it. I would just love to see someone come up with an original saying of their own and not "ITS BUILT LIKE A T#@*"
Does anyone have any other ways of saying it is a strong revolver besides this? Ok rant over just had to get that off my chest.

Built like an anvil?
Nice polish job.
I like: "built like an armored personnel carrier"
It takes a Viking to raze a village.
How about--It's built like a S&W 3rd Gen semi auto? That's tougher than a tank.

I have a holster that was referred to as built like a Peter built truck.
Do maybe call it a Peter built Ruger ?

It is really no stronger built than a J frame 357 mag. It is just chubby due to the inferior cast material. People confuse chubby with strong.

I don't know how many of you worked on M1 thanks. The Ruger needs much less maintenance and has way more parts.
Ruger SP101. Built like a Craftsman hammer.
I have a Pentax brand Spotmatic 35mm SLR Camera that I bought in a pawn shop in Thailand in 1969. I abused the camera body and original lenses extensively but continued to use the camera, enjoying flawless service, until buying a more automated model in the early 1980s.
I have described the reliable old Pentax as being, "As robust as a battleship." I never copyrighted the phrase, leaving you free to use it if you so choose. ;)
