    Ruger SP101 9mm

    Just heard Ruger is brining back the SP101 in 9mm. Wonder if that will drive down old model prices some.

    Just so you guys know... if you were to buy me a baby shower gift... I’m going to spending so much on diapers, this 9mm would be cheaper to shoot than the 357....

    I have one in .357 mag. Changed the springs and polished inside & out. It shoots like a velvet pillow when I use .38 special.

    I love mine. 3" in 357. I smoothed and/or buffed out every moving and sliding part. Very pleasant to shoot. Go big John. A big bad officer like you needs a 357 SP-101.

    I have the 2” .357. But my wife stole it for the bedside.

    The thought of a 9mm revolver sounds so great. But wasn’t too pleased with the LCR. And didn’t like carrying the moon clips for reloads. So I don’t know what attracts me to it.

    I too hate moonclips. I went to the NRA convention earlier this year and got to fondle a Charter Arms Pitbull in 45ACP. My FFL friend was with me and he ordered it for me while we were there. It was waiting for me when I got back home. No moonclips buddy and it is a hoot to shoot. They also come in 9mm and 40. Fit and finish are great. My only complaint was the front sight blade was useless being the same matte brushed metal color as the barrel. A little bit of orange paint and that complaint was gone. I did a fluff and buff (just because) on the moving parts and it is quite the nice revolver.

    Reloads are a pain with those I hear because you have to firmly press them into the clips in the cylinder. Wouldn’t be helpful with a speed strip for reload.

    I’ll try to be happy with my multiple revolvers I have for the time being.

    I use a speed strip (#580) with mine. The trick is to slightly push up on the ejector.

    MSRP is a little "Ruger" heavy, but I know their revolvers are solid as a rock. That gun, in 9mm, would most certainly make a revolver guy outta me.

    Guess the SP101 is just too hi-cap for these states.

    Re: Ruger SP101 9mm

    Got the .357 version and its the perfect small frame .357, I shot it against the Smith 60 and it won hands down, which is why I bought it. Before buying the small .380 Taurus I was biased against the full moon clip. But after using one, and carrying the spares I think its a great setup, and I will have to seriously consider the 9MM in the SP101. I carry two spare full mono clips in a nylon speedloader case on the front of my belt about 11:00. Its comfortable and a fast reload.
