SP101 midget

My 4 inch 327 SP101 arrived from grabagun today..My first impression is that its' tiny!!! It sure felt small in my hand.I never held one before but have been lusting for another 327 so we'll see how small it is when I get a chance to shoot it
I'm in the midst of moving so all I did was look at it quickly and put it back in the box I'll check it over later. but it may be a couple of months before my
guns surface again.
Ps Grabagun had a good price inexpensive shipping and prompt service.

Yep, they're small.....er than a GP100. Certainly not tiny though. Quite hefty in fact when compared to a Smith J-frame or the LCR.

If the grip is too small for you, fear not. There are plenty of aftermarket grip makers who can help. I think you'll really enjoy the SP101. It is in fact quite robust for a compact revolver. Enjoy it and shoot the snot out of it.

Congrats. I agree, Grabagun prices/shipping are hard to beat.

I love my sp101 3 inch 357 and if you fire full 357 in it you will appreciate every ounce. it is all steel except for the grips.

Wapiti, I ordered mine from Grabagun too & picked up on the same day as you. It was $519.00 & $7.99 shipping with a $15.00 transfer fee - My favorite gun dealer couldn't buy it himself that cheap Just had a chance to go to the range yesterday. I was a little concerned about the grip size too, (I can just get my pinky on the corner of the grip), but honestly it hasn't given my any trouble with muzzle flip - The weight of the under lug barrel & the high grip position seems to negate flip & the rubber grip takes the punch out the recoil. It's way more comfortable than my Single Seven in .327 with "4 5/8" barrel, although I've had no issues with recoil or flip on that one either. I'd give it a chance before you hate the grip - it's really nice for CCW even the though the barrel's a 4". It's making about 2 1/4" groups @ 7 yards but I only have 100 rounds through it so far. Wonder how long it will take to get broke in & smoothed out.. Have fun with it - I love mine - Doc

Yes, on my SP I have a Hogue wood grip which adds a fair amount of length, perhaps more than needed. There are also Eagle, Badger, Herretts, Thai and others in wood along with larger rubber ones.

I put Pachmayr Diamond Pro grips on my SP101 and found it quite comfortable to hold and shoot. They're just a bit longer and accommodate​ the pinky finger.

SP 327

Well I did get a chance to look at my new sp today. It has the best fit and finish of the last half dozen Rugers I bought.
The buff was good and no sharp edges except the hammer. The trigger itself was exceptionally well rounded but did drag on one side. However it was real scratchy in double action to be fixed later. The front sight was where it belongs.
The BC gap was a fairly tight .06.
All and all this gun looks like a step up in quality control compared to my last few. Can't wait to shoot it but thats' a couple months away .
