I bought an exposed hammer 3" .357 SP101 back in January, 2010. When the trigger is pulled fully to the rear (DA or SA) and slowly released to within approximately 1/16" of its complete forward arc travel, subsequent rearward trigger motion results in rotation of the cylinder alone without any movement of the hammer. The cylinder can be rotated forever by pulling the trigger alone as long as the trigger is short-stroked within that last 1/16" bit of trigger travel. I disassembled and reassembled the gun per instructions with no change in behavior. It's kind of fun until the realization sets in that this could get you killed. I found one other complaint over on the Rugerforum about this and the poster was reportedly advised by factory techs to return the gun since that this freewheeling lockwork behavior was abnormal. I attempted to verify the necessity of returning my SP101 by calling Ruger, but the tech stated that although he was willing to check the gun out, it seemed like a training/practice matter to him. I advised him that my '09 GP100 action locked up when shortstroked, WAY preferable to just cranking the cylinder around. After I mentioned shooting GLOCKs mostly from reset, he kinda pooh-poohed the matter and suggested more anti-shortstroking practice. I can accept this as a design particularity if that's what it is. I know this is a GLOCK harbor but has anyone had this same experience with a SP101?
