The Ruger SP-101, more than the Taurus 85, deserves credit for initiating the small frame revolver muscle contest of the late 1990s where their chief competitor, Smith & Wesson, came along with a bit of kicking and screaming first to .38 Plus P status on their J frames, and then to full house .357 Magnum. This SP-101 Ruger in .357 Magnum Caliber marks a definitive historical point for concealable handgun development, and it holds pride of place to this day. This variant, the KSP321X, is the traditional double and single action version with .305 serrated spur hammer and matching smooth faced combat trigger. It is five shot capacity, handles any conventional .357 Magnum or .38 Special load – and a lot of unconventional ones; 2.25 inch full shroud barrel; weight of 25 ounces empty. Front sight is pinned on serrated blade black anodized, and matches the frame intergral fixed notch rear sight perfectly. This specimen comes to us from domestic protection duty from our favorite NYPD retiree. It is in its original box with its massive Ruger padlock, instruction manual, and fired brass case dated from January of 2007. Note that its grips are the classic serrated panel insert type. Surface detractions are minimal, principally light cylinder rotation marking and frame contact streaking on the left upper side of the trigger. We rate it as Excellent in Box, 90 percent vicinity by our estimate, but photos ought to suffice for our distinguished shoppers to judge finish grade for themselves. Double action trigger pull is heavy enough but smooth. The hammer travels an additional 15 degrees on all five positions after the cylinder times in double action. On single action, the hammer travels fully 35 degrees on all five after the cylinder times, and the single action trigger pull measures 4 7/8 pounds with negligible felt creep and overtravel. Blast effect to the under side of the frame top strap directly above the barrel’s forcing cone is negligible, only a smooth streak with no indentation. Lateral movement to the cylinder is negligible with the trigger relaxed, no more than 1/2 mm by our estimate; and with the trigger fully depressed there is no lateral play whatsoever. Bore, cylinder chambers, and mechanism are all bright and clean. This revolver has been fired fewer than 50 times since it left Southport six years ago. Viewed against the Smith & Wesson competitors, this revolver is underpriced on today’s market. Own the SP101 in the photo or one of its identical mates for only $ 519.00.
