    is there anywhere where there is a schematic for the ruger sp101 or just a revolver in general? i have googled countless terms trying to find a picture that names all the parts but i can't find one. there are many that name just a few parts but none that name them all.

    i can't find the name of the pin in the middle of the ejector or the little button that pin depresses in the frame that allows the trigger and hammer to be pulled back. on my sp101 the pin is leaving a long scratch in the frame and is denting the little button. i pressed the pin in with my finger and it seems to give too much resistance. i was going to remove the ejector and cut a coil or two of the spring that pushes this pin but i don't have the tools. i have heard from some people that this is normal for a sp101 but they said the same for the ejector rod rattling and ruger fixed that for me when i mailed it in and not a single other one of my revolvers has a gouge in the frame from this pin.

    what do i do/ what are these parts names?!?!

    Don't do anything with it.
    Mine does the same thing and I have been shooting the heck out of it for 2 years now. Probably over 3000 rounds. It is doing just fine.

    Those marks are totally normal for revolvers that use a spring loaded center pin type cylinder lock.
    Well used S&W revolvers and Ruger's have a center pin and they all leave the line on the breech face and a small dent where the pin drops into the locking hole.

    You can check the cylinder locking pin for a rough end, but even if it's perfectly smooth, the gun will still get those marks with use.

    For those that said that the mark on the recoil shield is normal, please look at it again. Look at how deep it is.

    I have an SP101 that has had thousands of rounds through it and the line is nothing like the one shown.

    These lines are usually just a shiny scratch that you can MAYBE feel with a fingernail. The line shown by the OP is a GOUGE that looks like metal is being removed.

    From experience with my admittedly small sample of revolvers, I would say that this level of metal removal should be addressed.
