The SP101 is a great revolver, full hammer or spurless,either one is good. However, I highly recommend the Hogue Monogrips for great comfort and control.I wish to purchase a Ruger SP101 and have a question for this forum. Would you all recommend the spurless hammer model or hammer with spur model? Also do you recommend the Crimsion Trace grips or standard grips? This unit will be for CC.
