Ruger introduced the SP101 in .327 Fed. Mag. The six-round, small-frame, double-action revolver has a 4.2-inch barrel and adjustable sights. Built from stainless steel, this new model features a light-gathering front sight, windage- and elevation-adjustable rear sight and a rubber grip with checkered hardwood inserts.

"The SP101 has a reputation for being a very strong and reliable revolver and combining it with the powerful .327 Fed. Mag. cartridge creates a perfect "kit gun" package," said Chris Killoy, Ruger's president and COO. "The compact size of the SP101 makes it the ideal companion while in the woods or afield, and the longer barrel helps the .327 Fed. Mag. cartridge reach its velocity potential," he concluded.

The 29.5-ounce SP101 can be fired in either a double-action or single-action mode, and includes Ruger's triple-locking cylinder that locks the cylinder from the front, rear and bottom for reliability and durability. The rubber grip assures positive control while reducing recoil, and the Ruger transfer bar mechanism provides a measure of security against accidental discharge.
