A "Super" SP101, .22

Kinda like the Super Single Six, I've been trying to put together a "Super" SP101 in .22lr / .22wmr for a while now
I've had the .22wmr for quite some time, but the .22lr Cylinder has always eluded me
Well, I bought an extra SP101 in .22lr today
Gotta get it here and "swipe" the Cylinder off of it

Here's the questions I've had:
Is there a market for the Gun, less Cylinder ?
And if so, what would a fair price be ?
Keep in mind; the SP101 Frames are all the same, with one nice difference; the .22 Frame has the Adjustable Rear Sight
The Hammer and Crane are all the same
The Trigger Group is the same, only difference being; the 5 shot vs the 6 shot Pawl
I was thinking; someone may want to put their .357 Barrel and Cylinder on this Frame, and have a cool .357 SP101 with an Adjustable Rear Sight

Let me know what you folks think
Thanks Den S

One of the first things I tried, was asking Ruger for just that....they didn't seem very interested
Maybe someone else would have better luck

I inherited this gun from my Grandpa and there's no cylinder assembly, nobody can tell me anything about this gun.

The firing pin assy has to be different, rimfire vs center fire, too.
IDK if it's in the same location in the frame or not.

I may have to try this approach, then sell the whole thing, not just one as Parts

Don't know why, but at the time, Ruger wanted no part of fitting a standard, 6 shoot, .22lr Cylinder, to a Frame that held a Cylinder modified to .22wmr
I must have gone 10 rounds with 3 different "Customer Service" people
So I gave up on that angle

You're right
The Recoil Plate and the Firing Pin are different
Just a matter of pushing out a Pin and changing two parts

Well, the "Super" SP101 in .22lr and .22wmr lives
Got it all together (finally) the other day
It IS a bit tougher to change from one caliber to the other than with the Super Single Six, but now it's doable

I like it! I've had a yen for the SP101 in a light caliber, and what you have there looks a lot like what I want! Nice work!

Hey, do you have a price in mind for that frame if you were to sell it?

So, let me understand this. You had/have a SP101 in .22wmr. You bought another SP101 in .22LR to make an interchangeable cylinder such as the Single Six Convertible?

I may be ignorant but I did not know Ruger made a SP101 in .22wmr. Everywhere I look online, I get info from people who want to know how and when Ruger is coming out with a .22mag for this frame. Not that there is one on the market.

So you have an SP101 in .22wmr? Maybe I am not understanding your post at all. Sorry.

I love a nice 22 Wheelgun and the SP101 makes for a fun shooter

Took P89DC suggestion and now the Frame is at Ruger having a Cylinder fit to it
I'll have it back in a couple weeks and relist it as a whole Revolver again

Slim:
Exactly right
I tried to get Ruger to fit a .22lr Cylinder to the Frame I had with the .22wmr, and because it had been modded into the wmr, Ruger refused to do the work....So I bought another SP101 in .22lr and stole its Cylinder

Not OEM
The Original owner had a Pistolsmith work it into the wmr
I bought it as the wmr a number of years back and have been trying to get the .22lr Cylinder and have a "SUPER" put together ever since

"Super" SP101, The Video

Took a Video of the switch from .22lr to .22wmr
Not as easy as with the Super Single Six.....But it's doable

Ran 100 Rounds, and 75% had to be double clicked to pop the Primer
Switched to the .22lr Cylinder and ran a couple hundred Rounds and it ran 100%
So I'm thinking the Reduced Power Hammer Spring may be the cause of the FTFire with the wmr
The accuracy with both was pretty good
My Wife really loved shooting the .22lr, so I think the New Model, 8 Rounder will be hers when it comes in a few weeks
