Ruger makes quality, American-made products affordable. Buds makes buying firearms online easy and offers great deals. You can't lose. Product shipped in about a week and the FFL received it promptly. Product was factory new as specified. The sp101 3" .357 is a perfect all purpose revolver. Had considered the snubby, but the 3" conceals just fine with a leather pancake IWB holster. I forget it's there. Fixed sights are on point..... Tight groupings, especially with 158gr. Very glad I went with the Ruger over S&W.

Great revolver, perfect size for everything in general. Ruger makes a quality product. I was a little disappointed when further inspecting the gun as I discovered someone had been tampering with the cylinder latch screw, they used the wrong tool and scratched up the screw channel but I didn%u2019t make a big deal about it since it doesn%u2019t really affect performance, I called buds and they assured me the gun was new and advised to call Ruger for a solution. Also, the trigger is a little gritty but it should go away as you fire the weapon. Overall, I would recommend this gun for general purposes.

Awesome Gun, love the SP101 in 3" it makes for a nice carry gun. Buds makes buying guns on line easy and affordable. As a retiree i like the option of having 90 days to pay off my guns. I have purchased at least 5 maybe 6 guns from buds with no problem. The prices are awesome and cannot be beat, I also sold guns to buds and the process was easy and quick. If your on the fence about buying on line don't be worried Buds is awesome to deal with fast and easy. Every associate at Buds that I have dealt with has been excellent and knowledgeable making the process easy.. Thanks Buds...KCK

received my Ruger SP101 3" Satin Stainless and couldn't be more pleased, I immediately change the hammer spring to 10lbs and trigger spring to 8lbs and put a Hogue monogrip on her and it's all a person could ask for, the hammer needs to be shimmed, it has about 15 thousands play, so I'll order 2 5 thousands shims for that, I bought the parts while waiting to receive my 357, there are plenty of video's on youtube to get step by step instruction, which I found extremely easy to follow if you the patient type, but if you are short tempered don't even try, to many little springs to fly away, this is at lest to me one beautiful revolver, I called Ruger and the serial # was shipped from the factory August of this year 2017, apparently Ruger listens to it's customers and took the stamping "read instruction manual" off the side and put it in small print under the barrel, which is a good move for Ruger, can't say enough good things about Bud's, I have bought 3 handguns 2 used and this last one Ruger and they all look brand new, of course it would be nice if they could shorten the shipping time down, I joyed Buds club thinking I would be a preferred customer, not so when it comes to shipping, other than shipping they are excellent to do business with, thank you Buds, George

Wanted a quality small framed double/single action revolver for a carry weapon. The Ruger SP101 3\" in 38/357 fits the bill to a T for me. Compact, yet built like a tank as a lot of Rugers are. Fit and finish is very nice. Cylinder lock up is crisp and tight. Double action trigger isn\'t bad, but I will probably change the spring and polish everything up a bit. Single trigger is nice for my feel. I don\'t own any S/W products so I can\'t compare. First time at the range I tried both .38 and .357 ammo ( own standard loads) Shooting 38s in this gun really a lot of fun. Recoil is comfortable and surprisingly, I was hitting 1-1/2\" groups at 21\' right off the bat. That said, shooting .357s is a bit of a different story ( at least for me) Yes, the Ruger will handle the loads without blinking, but my hand won\'t. I\'m not particularly recoil sensitive but I found it a bit uncomfortable after a few rounds. I\'ll try it again, but I plan to try some Ps as well as an alternative. I have other guns that I can use for .357 if need be. This is a nice piece for carry. It even fits in the pockets of some of my looser fitting pants ( not so much with jeans). Seemed to take a long time to get delivery. Eight days, but the money left my account the next day after order. Im not sure how these guys seem to get their order in 3-4 days. Maybe they live across the street from the warehouse?
