I have a GP100 and the trigger is very smooth and crisp. Is the trigger in the SP101 similar in feel to the GP100?

Howdy Txgolfer45,

The single action trigger characteristics of both are very similar. There is a very small amount to take-up before the break on each. Rugers are good but conservative. Even with this small amount I find them still very shootable with good accuracy.

The double action is quite different between the two. I find my GP to be much smoother and it appears to have a better mechanical advantage. The SP is just not as smooth. This is even after cleaning up some of the internals to smoothing thing up just as I did with the GP.

Still the double action trigger on the SP is quite shootable for fast action shooting. It just seems to make me work harder to cycle the gun when it is only slightly dirty. The GP can be really dirty and you can still power it through the cycle without too much fuss.

I've had a good time putting both platforms through the paces. I will tell ya that having only five to launch at the club level matches is tough. It sure is a good chance to see just how things hold up under load.

I've got no regrets owning both. Good luck to your knowledge search.

Cheers!

I've had both, and remember the SP's trigger being heavier. It was still smooth, though, with no hitches, hangups or "stacking." Both triggers could have benefited from the sharp edges being rounded off.

After checking out the SP101 this morning, I opted for an S&W 642 instead. I'll use my GP100 in the field. But, in town, I'll stick with the lighter weight S&W 642 or 442 if I'm carrying a small revolver. Easier to conceal and fairly easy to handle with +P loads.

I own both of them and the trigger on my GP100 is 100% better than the SP101. I am going to do a trigger job on the SP101 when I get the time.
