For someone (like me) with relatively small hands this is one of the most ergonomic and well balanced revolvers I have handled. Ruger quality is present throughout. Although the stock grips look nice and handle well, Hogue grips make 357 mags a lot more pleasant to shoot. Bottom line: It's a keeper.

Great gun and shoots well. The only negative mark was that I had to send the gun back to Ruger due to the spent casings for the .357 not wanting to eject from the cylinder. Shipped the gun back to Ruger and they changed out the cylinder and had it back to me in 3 days.

After a great deal of research I decided to go with the Ruger SP101 4.2. This is my first gun purchase and I just received it today. Couldn't wait to get to the range and see how it performed out of the box. Started with the 38's and was quickly able to get some nice groupings. The gun fits in my hand like a glove and the grip allows you to get full contact with the.hand. This is one reason I chose this piece over the 2.25 SPANISH 101. The 357 has a kick but felt in complete control handling the recoil. Had to grind when the people at the lane next to me commented "that's loud." This gun is our home defense weapon but still small enough to carry. It feels, looks and shoots solid. Very happy with my purchase. Now a few words about about Buds Guns Shop. I scoured the Internet for the best deal and Buds was the best price. This is the most difficult SP101 to find and they sell quickly. The site is easy to navigate and they kept me advised me every step of the way via email. Couldn't be happier and I will be back. Thanks Buds!

This is my first revolver purchase, and I am very happy overall. Ruger has a reputation for making quality firearms and this pistol is no exception. The brushed stainless steel finish is beautiful, the sights are well made and visible, and the pistol is more accurate than I will ever be. I was concerned about the grip size when the SP101 was first delivered, but it turns out to be just the right size - and I have large hands (size 5 in Army gloves). My pinky just holds to the bottom of the grip when I push my fingers into the frame to get as high on the pistol as possible. The rubber grips have the right amount of tackiness, and the wood panels are good-looking and make the pistol less likely to catch on or stick to clothing when drawing. The action was solid out of the box, but seemed gritty overall. I think this was due to some metal shavings left during the manufacturing process. The problem was easily solved by disassembly and lubrication. If the bulk of a GP100 doesn't interest you, then you will like this pistol. It is much slimmer, weighs 3/4 of a pound less, and you are only giving up 1 round to get the savings. The barrel does not seem to large for the size of the pistol, and actually balances quite well when held. Also, the weight makes 38 Special extremely fun to shoot. Magnum loads are not quite as fun but definitely manageable. Overall, I am extremely happy with the pistol and the price that I paid.

Got this Revolver for my daughter for Christmas. Was a little concerned that the recoil may be too much for her with the small frame, but the 4" barrel and the weight she handled it like a .22. (shooting .38). Cant wait to see her use some .357 through it. Trigger pull is a little heavy but should loosen up with use. Shoots accurate as can be.

Again : A smooth transfer although a little slow due to the Christmas rush but all same all same ! The piece shoots deadly accurate right out of the case and surprisingly minimal recoil from a lite handgun - esp. with .38 Specials. And with 50 Grain Critical Defense loads its like shooting a 22 Magnum. Thanks Bud's !
