Extra Pictures



Ruger's rugged SP101 is chambered in 38 Special which makes for an excellent snubnose revolver. Ruger's SP101 is not only an excellent carry gun with its compact 2.25" long barrel, but it is also manufactured with the durability needed for heavy shooting volume.

The SP101 has a smooth, easy to control trigger with a manageable recoil due to its heavier duty frame construction. The front sight is easy to pick up in the wide rear notch making aiming on the draw easy on this Double Action Only revolver.

If you're looking for a quality defense revolver capable of firing hotter magnum loads, then look no further than Sturm, Ruger & Co's SP101 38 Special. Since Ruger's entrance into the firearm manufacturing business they have led the industry with innovation, quality, and value.

Customer Reviews

Excellent gun - Review by Ridge Runner
Have had one for years. It is very manageable to shoot (compared to smaller snubs), accurate for a snub, and durable. I shoot hot .38s rather than .357s since I like hotter .357 loads in my larger GP-100 revolvers. Hot .357s can be a handful in this gun. Also very easy to carry and conceal. Excellent value.

Product Question and Answer

Q: Is this a good weapon for a female,age 60,but strong hands.I wanted something with po,but easy to clean.

Posted On: 9/16/14 By: mary mcbeth

A: Hello Mary, The Ruger SP-101 in .38 Special is a great firearm. It would be good for target shooting at the range, or defense. Ammunition is readily available as well as .38 Special is a very common caliber. Revolvers are fairly easy to clean as well and don't require disassembly like a semi-auto. It is an easy to control firearm as well. I would suggest seeing how it feels in your hands to see what you think.
