A bit much even with the holster .. What I find neat is look at the proof markings .. If I am reading them right I am guessing French issued guns .... So bit of history there ... proof in ST ETIENNE HOUSE house france per http://www.nramuseum.org/media/940944/proofmarks.pdf


So if you want a gun with a bit of french charm with I am guessing the org holster ..Well got 400$ ? Its intersting as some reading states that the French police for years used either Ruger or Maurhian wheel guns and also issued a version of either the Mini 14 or the AC556 auto mini 14 ..

So hey


Ruger has done some very cool police contract guns ...My fav is the Indian police speed six they made in 38 s&w that had lanyard rings on them

Better get "maggied" ex-member "mymomsson" to review them, as "per him, ALL Ruger's are junk! :rolleyes:

NOW MY REAL COMMENT! Thank's @WrongRecroom! A fair price, as they'll "still be shoot'n" when the "next nuclear war" rolls around! Also, WHEN EVER you post, I find "yet another new to me place, to shop"! :danceban:

The grip in the picture appears to be a Trausch grip which was made in France which would figure if that's a French issued SP101. The package is probably worth the money. The SP101 is indestructable and it comes with a bit of novelty. I'd be a buyer.

If these came with the mythical Trausch grips I would be all over them........
Yikes I hadn't even looked at the pics those are the mythical Trausch grips, last time I found a pair for sale they were upwards of 100 American dollars.

Neither the ad data nor the barrel stamp states "+P," just .38 Special.

I sold the Trausch grip I had about a dozen years ago to a kid I met who had been looking for a Trausch for his Sp101. I don't think they are made any more due to a death in the company or some such event. Unless they have acquired some collector's value which I guess is possible, I wouldn't pay $100 or €90.05 as the case may be for them.

The SP101 came out in 1985 I believe. In 1988 they were chambered for 357 Magnum.

Those are definitely Trausch grips. Jacques Trausch died at his desk years ago but did supply
the French police (in Paris) with these grips. I have a pair on my SP-101 .357 and absolutely love them.
Story goes that policewomen had difficulty hanging on to the the SP-101 and Trausch was contracted to design and manufacture the grips.
I have even corresponded with his widow who hated his business and disposed of everything.

They used to actually have a site where you could order them online. I ordered online and had a set in about a month. Shipping was from Paris. I can't recall what I paid for them, it's been a few years. They were a nice fit for the SP101.

Yes the owner Mr. Trausch passed away some time ago and his family had no interest in keeping the company going so they are no longer in production. Finding a pair for sale is near impossible and yeah they fetch over a 100 dollars easily last set I found was a seller in Australia and he wanted a pretty penny for them.
