Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. has introduced the SP101 small-frame revolver chambered for the .22 Long Rifle cartridge.
The 30-ounce double-action revolver is made of weather-resistant stainless steel with a satin finish. 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.
"We were constantly receiving feedback from our customers asking us to produce the SP101 in .22 LR," said Chris Killoy, Ruger's 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."
