I have no problem with advice. I ordered the rubber for recoil purposes.
I chose the soft rubber Monogrip on my SP101 and find they make .357 magnums very comfortable to shoot.
1. Light, but not too light to shoot stout .357 loads with the Hogue grip.
2. Stainless so I don't worry about it like I do my Model 19-3.
3. No magazines to mess with.
4. I shoot it better than my plastic guns.
5. It's fun to carry a revolver now and then.
6. A good cartridge choice for things in the middle of the Northern Minnesota swamps.
7. Shoot it 2x better than I do my 686 for some reason. Smaller grip maybe?
You'll like yours.
Edit - It wouldn't be my choice if I was planning to be in a gunfight.
Me too. That's why I still prefer to carry revolvers. I shoot them better.
I think they make them in 9mm again. Then there's always .38.
I've used Hogue rubber, nylon and wood grips. The wood is best looking, but both slicker and fatter than the rubber and nylon versions. The nylon doesn't stick to clothing, but even though textured, feel rather slick compared to the rubber Hogues. The rubber Hogues on are the ones I've left on the gun...
Who makes those speedloaders?!!!!? Wow!!
They look like 5-Star loaders to me.
Yup, blingy speedloaders from 5 star. They make cool stuff. http://www.5starfirearms.com/Chiappa-Rhino-Bedside-Block-Kit-p/cf35706310.htm
I'm surprised you noticed Machined from solid billet aluminum
And the 6 shot .327 Fed Magnum.
sorry! Yep. What everybody else said. 5 Star.
If you are really used to HKS, be advised, they turn the opposite way to release.
I haven’t really used Speedloaders in so long, I can probably acclimate pretty easily. But, if your a die hard revolver guy, stay with HKS or, go all in on the 5 Star.
Looks like the thread is more about grips. We're like that.
Yeah, the thread evolved into grips and then speedloaders. heheheh
I don’t need to worry about sweat or salt spray getting on it. I can always take it apart and give it a distilled water rinse which I have don’t before.
The SP101 is the Makarov of the revolver world. Of every revolver I’ve ever owned it is my favorite. It’s the perfect balance of size, weight and ruggedness.
I keep a 2” gun chambered in 9mm in the metal locking vault of my truck. It stays there all the time.
I also have a 3” model in .32 magnum. The 3” barrel is the perfect barrel length and overall balance.
The only place they are lacking is in the sights. But I see Ruger is slowly introducing newer models with real sights.
Those are my random thoughts on the SP101.
Agree 100% there Dan.
How old is that .32 magnum? Haven't seen it listed in that caliber.
