I still want one of those SP101's in 327 Fed Mag......and yes...they (Ruger) make great guns...as far as i am concerned ruger is just as good as smith for quality. rugers are generally a little more weighty than they need to be but most of the time less expensive. i had ( got stolen ) an sp101 327 magnum that i thought was great but the ammo was hard to find and expensive. the only problem was the sp101 and the gp100 are a little more involved for a full cleaning but not enough to scare me away. another thing about revolvers in general is the lighter and the smaller they are the more recoil. i think it all depends what your looking for in a wheel gun, carry, range,etc. to answer your questions directly, yes ruger makes a fine gun and i would have no problem buying one.
Excellent choice, I have that exact same setup, I use it for my HOT LOADS in 45 LC & 45 ACP. I bought the revolver as soon as Ruger put it on the market. Acquired it at dealer cost only because I purchased a Browning Lightning 12 Guage over under at the same time. He knocked $100 off that as well. Trust me, you won't go wrong!! Jackalope3 MI inI have three Glocks including a Glock 21. I have never had a revolver so I think it would be fun to have one. I have been thinking of getting a Blackhawk Convertable .45ACP/.45LC since I have a lot of .45 ACP ammo for my glock 21, but would like to try a Colt .45. This way I can shoot both with one gun. Anyone have any comments on this gun.
