Guns The New Blued Ruger SP101 In .357 Magnum Announced Patrick Roberts October 20, 2018 Join the Conversation If stainless finishes aren't your thing and you are in the market for a .357 magnum revolver, the new blued Ruger SP101 might just be for you. The 5 shot small frame revolver is made from a steel alloy and comes in at 27 ounces, a touch heavier than other revolvers in its class but it should help to absorb recoil with hot .357 mag loads. Ruger has fitted the blued Ruger SP101 with a rubber grip that has either a wood or plastic insert ensuring that the backstrap of the revolver has no exposed metal to smack the crap out of your palm under recoil. More Features: Takedown of integrated subassemblies requires no special tools and allows for easy maintenance and assembly. Patented transfer bar mechanism provides an unparalleled measure of security against accidental discharge. Patented grip frame easily accommodates a variety of custom grips. Triple-locking cylinder is locked into the frame at the front, rear and bottom for more positive alignment and dependable operation shot after shot. The blued Ruger SP101 will come in at an MSRP of $719 and can be found at Ruger retailers. Find more information on the Ruger website. More from Ruger: Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc.
