The Ruger SP101 I won on Gunbroker finally came in today. I'll pick it up early tomorrow and have some pics to share too. It has a 4'' barrel. I bought it because I wanted to see what its like to shoot a .32 H&R mag and I really like the 4' barrel on the SP101.

Hope you like the lil' 32 caliber. I've got several 32's, including a sp101 for my wife. The wilson spring kit is great for the single action, although I didn't like the lighter mainspring, so I kept that stock. (with the lighter spring the trigger return felt "ratchety".)

The grip is a little small for my hand, and I have troble hitting accuratly ove 7-10yds because of it. Fits her better, and she has no problems. Hogue makes a slightly larger grip, but not much bigger than stock)

If you want to shoot 32 with any regularity, I'd say it's time to start reloading. I like the rainer ballistics 32 100gr FP for magnums, and the hordnady 85gr xtp for s&w longs. Titegroup is a great powder for smaller callibers, if your powder measure can do 2 grain drops!

I have ordered ammo from both cabelas (S&B) and midwayusa, and they are as about as cheap as I can find. Lead WCs and cowboy loads are dirty, though. Magtechs are sometimes availible at my range for $18 abox for 32s&w longs! (get that reloader press, and a set of hornady dies in 32s&w/H&R)

Enjoy the new gun.. You'll have to get a S&W Airweight J frame carry gun in 32mag next... I'm always searching for a deal on a late model s&w 16 w/ 6" barrel myself.

I've been eye'n a set of these for a stocking stuffer for the little lady, haven't called to check if they would fit the 32...

16'er, those Redwood Burl grip inserts are beautiful! Are those the only set or do they have several of those? I'd like to get them but I don't want to buy them away from you if they're the last set.

It finally came in today. My purchase permit expired Friday and the gun came in early Saturday so I had to wait all weekend knowing it was waiting for me. Ammo is extremely difficult to find in this area. Only one store stocks CorBon ($$$$) with 20 in a box. Anyways, here it is, on the bottom. This is the only SP101 I would put nice grip inserts on. The other two are carry guns.

Says on his site they are availible in any type of wood, so if they do fit, go ahead and get some. I still haven't called yet. I have my doubts they will fit because the top edge on the grip shown looks concave, and I believe mine is straight. have you gotten out to shoot it yet?
You may be right about the fit. I'll have to take a closer look at it.

I haven't had it out yet. I have far too many guns in the safe that I've never shot. I need to do something about that soon.

Great looknig shooter you've got there. I had one for the ex missus, and it was a joy to shoot.
