Ruger SP-101

Is a Ruger SP-101 in .357 with 2.25" barrel in good condition priced at $400 a good deal?

That seems a bit steep for a used SP 101. In my opinion.
Did you check gunbroker?

You might try Guns International too. Have you fired a 101 before? I sold mine only because although I am a decent marksman, I could never get accurate with that gun. Mine had a very hard trigger pull. I'd have probably been wise to have a smith tame it down.

Don't see them any cheaper around here.

I'd probably offer $375 at the most for it. You might be able to talk them down to $350.

Maybe a bit high but gun prices are very regional.

We worked the trigger a wee bit on my friend's SP101 and now we're both able to hit the 10" gong at 50 yards with a fair degree of certainty.

It's as small and light as I'd want to go with a 357.

I'd say it's fair. Offer $350, jump on it at $375. Even at $400 if it's in good condition i wouldn't feel robbed.

The SP is a nice gun and the trigger gets better the more you shoot it.

Good guns

Trigger pull is a little heavy, but you can replace the springs with a wolf kit. Makes a huge difference.

I agree fully. There are you tube videos that show you how. Very easy.

Good price IMO, having watched their prices continually go up in recent years
