Thanks. Yeah, I'd likely put a Wolff mainspring in it.
I think i went with their shooter pack.
I have the 3" version, all original except for the Altamont grips. It's one of my favorites. I'm using one of the Simply Rugged pancake style holsters... when walking the dog.
Is that a lanyard ring on the bottom of your grip, and if so, where did you get it?
Sure is. Hogue, part # 00129. It works with the large screw grips stirrups. I think It was $2.50.
Outstanding. Thank you. Looks like I need to call them to get one. I really have no justification for a lanyard ring on my revolver than "Because Indiana Jones had one, but oddly, I find that is enough."
I got to handle a couple of those a few years ago, 6"and 4". The 6" was tempting.
The upgrades on the Talo editions - specifically the Novak sights and nicer Altamont rubber/wood grip are both worth it, imo.
Hows it shoot?
Very nice. And rock solid accurate. Starting to smooth out after a few hundred rounds now.
Hes got some good videos.
Indeed. Straightforward, no BS and no posturing.
I like Paul Harrel, all of his videos I have seen are straight forward, informative, and no B.S.
I've had a hankering for a SP101 snub for some time now. Came across a Talo edition last week for a good price and I picked it up on my lunch break today. Just got back from the range, where I put a variety of 38/357 target ammo through it, as well as some Hornady Critical Defense (.38+P - 110 gr), Federal HST Micro (.38+P -130 gr) and some Federal Hydra-Shock (.357 - 130gr) and it ate it all up.
I was actually surprised at how well this little gun handled .357 loads. But for a defensive round, I think I'm going to stick primarily with the HST Micro 38+p. I've seen great performance with this round, and most ballistics tests have agreed. Penetrates well for a .38 round, with excellent expansion.
I might just have a new daily workhorse...
Oh boy Hammer, I have been looking for one of those. I really want to try out those sights. I have a standard SP-101 with a big dot front sight. It is a workhorse.
Underwood has some nice offerings too and their prices with shipping seem reasonable.
