    I just picked up one of these and haven't been able to find out much about them. Are they rare and the main thing are they dependable- haven't gone to the range yet.
     

    Wanna kill these ads? We can help!

    Not much on photography as you can tell. These are some Hogues I had for my 357. It came with the stock grips.

    They are worthless and they suck, but since I'm such a nice guy, send it to me and I'll give you what you paid for it.

    did it come with a extra cylinder seems like Ruger use to produce a 357 revolver that with a cylinder change could shot some type of 9mm ammo I don't think it was 9x19 thought 9mm Parabellum I think please don't quote me on this thought cause I might be wrong.

    Will try to post pictures this weekend.
    ChuteTheMall-I appreciate the offer, but after going to the range,I think I'll force myself into keeping it for a while. But you never can tell-keep a look out on the classifieds.
    HotRoderX- It is a Ruger SP101 3" revolver-just set up for 9mm (from the factory) and uses moon clips-if you want to use them. They were discontinued around 2000, I think.
    It sure is a lot more fun to shoot - compared to my 2 1/4" 357 Sp 101 - and cheaper.

    I was about to get an SP101 3" 38/357 but your post may have put that on hold. I reload 9mm so it'd be a good excuse. As usual I'd chalk the purchase up to "saving" money.

    Enjoy.
    Not many made.
    Was like an off year project for Ruger.

    Something they should offer for the LCR, if not a larger sized LCR in .44 Special.

    Also, am I the only Ruger fan that wants them to offer a 3 inch .357 LCR?

    I've always wanted a revolver in 9mm, why are they rare?? Not just the SP101 but all revolvers in general.
