Default Bay Area Shooters! Anyone spot a SP101 for sale lately?

Looking for a .357 Ruger SP101, new or used, havent had any luck so far. If anyone has spotted one at a store anywhere around the bay let me know! If you remember the price that info is also appreciated.

Or if anyone has a good alternative i'm also open to suggestions.

Preferably a 3 inch, but open to the 2 and the 4 inch , not sure if the 4 is on the list or not.

Also give Jackson Arms a call. I'm reasonably certain I saw a Ruger .357 revolver in their case a month or so ago (one of the few guns they had left in the case), and it'd been there for at least a month before that. Can't say for sure that it was an SP-101, but for some reason that's ringing a bell for me.

Looks like Joe Bobs has a few different ones in stock, if you don't mind doing a transfer. Fairly reasonable price too for our current times.

Good luck, I also have gotten the revolver bug lately... Let us know what you end up with.

Thanks for all the help CG, a couple members have contacted me with private sells which is always what I preferred over buying new

Really looking for a 3 inch barrel, and a full trigger not a bobbed one, big thanks to Munny$hot for his offer, still looking for a 3 inch if anyone has one for sale.

Have you ever thought of getting a 686? I bought one a few months ago a freaking love it. Mines a 4" and I'm sure you know they make 3" ones. They are a little harder to find, but they are out there

I've been looking for just about anything 3 inch, The 686 is a sweet revolver but I was hoping for a SP101 due too its size .


Found one at Canyon Sports for 650, i'll pass thats over MSRP.

Anyone else seen one lately?

Yea Canyon has a lot of inventory, but massively price gouged on a lot of stuff. I saw a Kahr PM9 for $939. Thats almost $300 over MSRP!

Funny, I found this one in my safe! I have to get a front sight like yours - old eyes.


OP - I know it is out of your area but Saturday I overheard someone talking to a clerk while looking at an SP-101.
I think it was Elite Arms in Manteca, but it might of been Barnwood in Ripon.
I'll be back around to both shops soon, including Alquist, Bilson's and Shotgun Johnny's and I'll let you know if I spot one.


5/18/13 Update: Barnwood - No, Alquist - No, Bilson's - No.
