This new SP101 will appeal to firearm instructors and enthusiasts who want to practice and perfect their shooting skills, or just spend time plinking with inexpensive rimfire ammo."We were constantly receiving feedback from our customers asking us to produce the SP101 in .22 LR and, once again, we listened to those requests and have produced a very impressive package," said Chris Killoy, Ruger Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "Ruger re-engineered the SP101 to chamber eight rounds instead of the traditional six, improved the sights, and maintained the same classic features that SP101 owners know and appreciate," Killoy added.

The 30-ounce double-action revolver is made of weather resistant stainless steel with a satin finish for longevity and good looks. The walnut grip panels inset in the one-piece rubber grip are checkered and engraved. The revolver features a fully adjustable square-notch rear sight and fiber-optic, square-post front sight. The 4.2-inch barrel features a half shroud covering the ejector rod.For more information on the new SP101 revolver chambered for .22 LR, or to learn more about the extensive, award-winning line of Ruger pistols, rifles, revolvers and shotguns, visit Ruger.com or Facebook.com/Ruger.
