The SP101 revolver boasts the strength to handle the powerful .357 Magnum and .327 Federal Magnum cartridges in a controllable, small-framed double-action revolver. Among the most powerful small-frame revolvers on the market, SP101's are engineered for solid performance. They feature a recoil-reducing grip that has no exposed metal in the backstrap, making them extremely comfortable to shoot. In addition, all SP101 revolvers boast solid steel sidewalls with no side-plates for rugged, reliable, dependability. The triple-locking cylinder is locked into the frame at the front, rear, and bottom for more positive alignment and dependable operation shot after shot. Ruger's patented transfer bar mechanism provides an unparalleled measure of security against accidental discharge. This revolver features a ramped front sight with a rear groove and rubber grips. Its grips, metal, and bore are all in very good condition.
