I bought my Mom an SP101 w/CT laser grips a couple of years ago for her CC/HD gun. Great gun. Then I recently picked up a Gemini Custom SP101. Wow! What a difference. The GC is much tighter. I haven't shot them side by side yet, but the difference in just playing with them side by side is quite substantial. And that's not taking anything away from the original SP101, as I'm a HUGE Ruger revolver fan. My latest purchase of the Wiley Clapp GP100, makes a grand total of 8 Ruger revolvers that I own/owned. Here's a couple of pictures of them side by side. I CC'd mine today to go visit her, but swapped out, once I got here, and toted the original with the CT's on it. Both CC great in my Occidental IWB holster. The SP101 is a great CC revolver, that really packs a punch, for those of you looking for a CC revo.
