Security Six Question

Hi all,

I'm considering trading my 2.25" sp101 that I never really use
for a 3" security six that I saw at a show today.

I've always wished I'd gotten the 3" sp101 because I
prefer it for a pack/woods gun.

I have a couple of other nice snubbies and don't mind parting with
the sp101, but am wondering whether the older security
sixes can handle a steady diet of full load .357's like the
beasty sp101 can. The gun is about 95%, well maintained, and
locks up fairly tight.

Is it worth a straight up trade?

Thanks!

Yes they can handle a steady diet of full loads. As for the trade, the SP101 may be worth a little bit more but not much. Just make sure the Sec Six has a serial # 151-XXXX or above. The older ones are just as good but have a different grip frame and finding grips can be problematic. A 2 3/4" Security Six is my daily carry, a 4" Sec Six is the house gun. Both ugly but I totally trust them.
They seeem to like 158gr bullets better...

The Security Six can handle a full diet of .357.

Thank you folks!

I meant 2 3/4, not 3 inch. My bad.

The strength and trade value are what
I was really wondering about.

I like the slightly longer barrel, adj. sights,
single action capabilities versus DAO,
and the original grips with
Tyler-T's fits my hand like a glove compared
to either the original sp101 grips or the
Hogues it's wearing right now.

Thanks again!

Good sights, and absence of :barf: DAO.

Deal sounds like a slam dunk to me!

If at all possible, get the Security - 6 and keep the SP101.
