I've got the 3 incher that I carry on a regular basis stoked w fed hydra shok 38 +p or remmy 125 sjhp. She barks.:what:
I love those grips, tho I heard its hit or miss w/ those for proper fit. Did you have any probs?

Have three of them myself and love them all. 2 1/4" .357, 2 1/4" 9mm, and 3" .32Mag. Biggest problem is choosing which one.

Yes, I bought the grips on Ebay as a tight fit on his gun. On mine they were loose as all get out. I had to add wood putty and fit them myself. As you might have guessed they are from Eagle Grips - Rosewood I presume.

I have 3 Sp-101's, 357 mag, 32 H&R mag and 22 lr. The 357 has a 3" barrel and the other two have 4" barrels. I would really like one in 9mm.:D

I have the 2 1/4" version and man what a hoot to shoot 158gr. Hornaday hollow points out of it.:D :D It sure is a rugged revolver though!

I just got one a few weeks ago and it has become my primary summer carry piece, replacing my XD40 3" b/c it's lighter and thinner.
I really like it. I need more practice with the .357 as I find that round difficult in this small gun.

They are great carry weapons and the 3", I personally like to carry a little more than my 2". The 1" longer sight radius helps me to be a little more accurate and the extra inch also helps in the velocity of the round. Heres mine with my Tucker Heritage IWB that I carry.
