Particularly look at post #6 of that thread for an SP101 with Secret Service grips. I have a set of these on a S&W 640. I'm satisfied with it, but they're really not all that good. Mine are checkered and there are checkering overruns all over the grip. Not real bad, but enough to notice upon close inspection. I got them cheap, so it really didn't matter. Otherwise, I don't have a problem with them, although I have read complaints about fit from other posters.
For my SP101 .357 3inch, I've got the hots for a set of Badger grips, but I find that I like the factory grips very much and am reluctant to spend $60 on a set of grips & then find out that I'd rather have factory. My 3 inch 9mm SP101 wears a pair of Hogue seconds wood grips (I have no idea why they are seconds, I can't find any problems with them) and I like them very much.
