If i am only getting 5 rounds I'm going to carry something much lighter.
Mostly this will be a trail gun. Or a camp gun for local spots. I still will be packing a 44 in griz country, but this sp101 could pair nicely with my rossi levergun for deer hunting and sharing ammo..
Good for you in finally finding an SP101 with a workable trigger! Sounds like a great companion to go with your Rossi M92 as well!
I reassembled the gun bone dry and dry-fired it 1000 times. Disassemble once more, hose it down with aerosol RemOil, reassemble, done. It's smooth now.
I wouldn't do this with a blued gun, but it was easy and cheap and it needed to be cleaned anyway. Wear eye protection and gloves while spraying.
Nice find! What shop did you get it at? I’m always looking for new gun stores to visit in Sw Washington. Especially ones that do consignments.
East County Guns is the shop in Centralia that I found the sp101, but Man Cave Outfitters and Joe's Sport Shop are also good right here in town.
Altamont makes some handsome grip inserts, in case you're interested in upgrading.
I bought a stock set like yours but put the fake pearl panels in it. Looks and feels much better now.
DAO SP101 so trigger and hammer springs are important in as they are smooth and functional.
As wankerjake said, Wolff springs are inexpensive and a DIY kind of project. I installed new hammer and trigger springs in mine...found the trigger spring channel to have manufacturing debris (metal chips and curls) that probably somewhat impeded the smoothness of operation. Added hammer shims too while I had it apart. That was several years ago. Has operated glass smooth ever since without so much as a hiccup from the lighter springs.
Good looking Ruger! I usually cant stand the GP/SP grip design, but being black, yours looks good.
My friend has one just like that, and it has served him well.
