You may recall my initial kvetch about the Ruger SP101 .22LR: the trigger was heavier than Proust and stacked more than my local Wal-Mart. TTAG commentator Aharon made the obvious but important recommendation: dry fire the bitch! Roger that (so to speak). And so the .22 caliber revolver was in my hand for most of the next day—which made comfort breaks a bit awkward. Be that as it wasn’t, I must have dry fired the wheelgun a thousand times. Pulling the SP101’s trigger still feels like you’re doing so on Jupiter, but it’s a LOT better . . .
Ralph demonstrated his prowess by shooting a one-inch group at five yards using the Ruger’s improved trigger action. I swear. [Video screwed the pooch.] That said, he did so by staging the trigger; the wheelgun still “boasts” a tractor pull-style trigger pull.
Point take: the Ruger’s accuracy is there. Well, Ralph’s. Mine not so much. I’m working on it though. As well as the full review . . .
