We’ve been long-time fans of Ruger’s SP101 revolver. Read our review here. It’s everything a packable .357 should be. Now, apparently since it’s #WheelGunWednesday, Ruger’s announced a new addition to the line, a blued alloy steel SP101 with a 2.25-inch barrel.
We think she’s a beauty.
Here’s Ruger’s press release:
Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE: RGR) is pleased to introduce the blued Ruger SP101® chambered in .357 Magnum. This five-round, small frame, blued double-action revolver is manufactured from alloy steel, features a 2.25” barrel, integral rear sight and ramped front sight.
“As the first blued alloy model in this family of revolvers, this new configuration sets itself apart from other SP101s and makes for a great compact and rugged carry firearm,” said Chris Killoy, Ruger President & CEO. “We have had several customer requests for this new model and we are pleased to add it to the lineup.”
This 26-ounce revolver can be fired in either double-action or single-action mode, and includes Ruger’s triple-locking cylinder that locks the cylinder from the front, rear and bottom for reliability and durability. The rubber grip assures positive control while reducing felt recoil and the transfer bar mechanism provides a measure of security against accidental discharge.
