Sturm, Ruger & Co. has introduced the SP101 in .327 Fed. Mag., a six-round, small-frame, double-action revolver with a 4.2” barrel and adjustable sights. Manufactured from stainless steel, this new model features a light-gathering front sight, windage and elevation adjustable rear sight, and a rubber grip with checkered hardwood inserts. undefinedundefined

"The SP101 has a reputation for being a very strong and reliable revolver and combining it with the powerful .327 Fed. Mag. cartridge creates a perfect "kit gun" package," said Chris Killoy, Ruger President and Chief Operating Officer. "The compact size of the SP101 makes it the ideal companion while in the woods or afield, and the longer barrel helps the .327 Federal Magnum cartridge reach its velocity potential."

The 29.5-oz., SP101 can be fired in either a double-action or single-action mode, and includes Ruger's triple locking cylinder that locks the cylinder from the front, rear and bottom. The rubber grip assures positive control while reducing recoil, and the Ruger transfer bar mechanism provides a measure of security against accidental discharge. For more, visit Ruger.com.
