Sturm, Ruger & Company has introduced a five-shot SP101 revolver chambered in the powerful .357 Mag. cartridge.
The new SP101 features a 4.2-inch barrel and improved sights in stainless steel with a satin finish, plus checkered and engraved walnut grip panels in a one-piece rubber grip. The revolver weighs 29.5 ounces and comes with a fully adjustable square notch blade rear sight and a green HiViz front sight. The barrel is also fully shrouded over the ejector rod.
“The SP101 has been an extremely popular small frame revolver since its inception in 1988, but it has always featured a short barrel and minimal sights," said Chris Killoy, Ruger vice president of Sales and Marketing. "This new version is a quality .357 Mag. small-frame revolver with a longer, full-shroud barrel and improved sights that offers the shooter a better sight picture, longer sight radius and additional weight to better control recoil. I am confident enthusiasts will find that this 4.2-inch .357 Mag. is a great all around center-fire revolver that remains true to classic SP101 styling.”
