On a follow-up. Aliengear's SP101 IWB's don't fit with the FO front sight. They replied they'd add it to the list of suggestions. Oh well. Crossbreed offers both sytles. Im awaiting an answer to if it will fit the WC gold bead front sight. I'd bet the Gold bead and the F/O are pretty close in height's. Ron

I bought the SP101 WC first and bought the GP100 WC after to go with it. Obviously the GP100 is easier to shoot well, but at normal distances, the SP101 does very well, probably because of the sights. If they were going to be my EDC revolvers, I would change out the sights on both for Novak night sights, which are expensive, but I would do at least the front sight on each. I wish that the SP101 had the bead blasted finish of the GP100, but that is probably an easy fix.

Well, you all convinced me. That was tough, huh? I found one for a fair price on GB, it should be here in a few days.

So I put 100 rounds of 158 gr JSP Federal .357 through it today. It hits a little high and a little left. Was going to adjust the rear drift sight, but I had every allen key but the one I needed with me. Sounds like a good excuse to head right back​ there soon! I'm not too worried about hitting a little high, that probably has to do with the heavy projectile, and I'll be carrying 180 gr hard cast in it anyway. It certainly has more snap to it than my GP100, but it was manageable. All in all, I'm very happy with it, it carries a lot more unobtrusively than the GP, or even my Six series guns do. I'm glad I pulled the trigger on it......

Little late to the party but I would have said DO IT!!! I have both, I do wish that they had given the SP the same treatment as the GP though. I would have liked the same finish and cylinder treatment on both. WC's top and bottom, wife's SP in the middle

IMO you are going to love it. It has become one of my favorite shooters. Dressed mine up with some Chig's.
