Gave my daughter my .22 SP a couple years ago.....been jonesing for another ever since, lol.Ruger SP101 in 22LR, picked it up yesterday and planning to take it to the range in the morning. Poor lighting on the left side looks like scratches behind the cylinder release but it's not scratched.
My father had/(has?) one of these. They are fun and fairly accurate. On his, the slide mounted safety by the rear sight began to drop (go "on safe") because the detent failed. I JB welded it in the "fire" position due to the thumb safety also present in the grip panel.Saw this in LGS a few weeks ago listed for $175. It is in great condition, used on consignment. Researched and saw that it may not be the most reliable and is overpriced, esp used, but a metal frame and a decent heft sat well with me. Few days ago stopped in and saw it had been lowered to $150. Today I went in and on a whim, offered $125. They looked it up and said, yep, they will take $125, that is the lowest they want to go. So I bought it. Gunbroker has them new for $165 plus $18 shipping (and costs for paperwork on my end). Also it came in the original box with manual and an extra mag that has a finger extension, which is $24 new. Can hardly wait to shoot it. Oh the GS gave me a free range pass too, worth about $15. I always ask for a free range pass every time I buy a gun. If it is a reliable shooter, I can buy a 5 inch barrel as shown on the manual below. Current is 3" which should suffice for my plinking activities. They also make these in .25 ACP.
