    I thought that a revolver to be MA or CA approved it must have an internal lock with a key somewhat like the new Smith and Wesson and Taurus Revolvers.

    I was looking at the Ruger home site and noted that SP101 are approved for sell, yet I see no mention of external cable and locks or internal key locks.

    What am I missing.

    Thanks.

    Im under the impression most revolvers are OK. I have shipped a few older Smiths and Colts there after an online sale.

    For CA...
    Internal locks are not a requirement to qualify for testing to be placed on the CA DOJ approved list.

    Also for CA...
    For a revolver to get listed, it needs a firing pin safety and needs to pass a reliability & drop test.
    C&R revolvers and single-action revolvers are exempt from the above requirements.

    aaah . so that is the trick. I used to be a fan of Seecamp autos and remember that only recently they came out with a CA approved model. Maybe MA too. Crazy prices

    So that was where i got my mixed up ideas.

    purchased my sp101 used $329 then added CT grips. HOpe to get a fiber optic front sight. With my eyesight about all i can do is point and shoot. The CT is great in low light but not worth a flip in daylight to me.

    Sorry cant sell. Like snub nose guns. Any 38 is better than a 380 auto . IMO.
