Bought a SP101 yesterday, Election Day. 3" 357 magnum so I shot it today.Did pretty well but stings a little with the factory grips when I put some 357's through it. So what type of grips can I upgrade on. I want to conceal carry and still looking for a holster idea also. Any Thoughts?

I recommend the Hogue Monogrip. Offers very positive purchase on the firearm w/out becoming too unwieldy for carry.

And congrats on your purchase. The SP101 .357 is a fantastic weapon. Enjoy!

You bought a great revolver. I have the insert (Lett style) grips and they fit my hands quite well and help with recoil to the point it doesn't bother me. The only issue I have is a little trigger guard pinch if I grip it too high up. Shoot it and enjoy it.

I have the snubbie that I carry in a Fobus paddle holster. It's a comfortble carry and the 3" will fit in this also, just will stick down a little more.

sp 101 grips

I put the Trausch rubber grip on my SP. Very comfortable even with magnum loads.

srb - Congratulations on the new SP101! Great revolver. The Hogue grip is nice option without spending a lot of money, either plain or with the Ruger logo for a few bucks more. The other grip I have experience with is the wood grips by Jim Badger, I have them on both of my SP101s and love them.

Holster options are more limited with a 3" barrel. Bianchi has a couple that work but I ended getting a custom made holster for the 3" barrel I have. Mine was made by Kelly Gun Leather.

Great purchase - enjoy!

Check Out Bulldog Cases for a reasonable price and excellent function.

The design allows for a range of barrel lengths, and they hold the weapon well. They do not have a thumb break strap. I carried my 4" SP101 in the small frame model while hunting in the Rockies this past fall, and it was very handy. The same holster also holds my 637 Smith nicely.

I recommend custom holsters for the SP101 3". As Wave mentioned, Kelley is a good maker. I have some of his for 1911s. For my SP101 I have a Nightingale IWB that is a clone of the Sparks VM2 and I can find no difference in the quality of the two. The Sparks takes 4-6 months to get but the Nightingale can be at your door in 30 days or less. I also have a Lobo cross draw that I use when I carry my .327 in the woods. It's a very good holster as well but not quite as concealable.

I have Badgers on my SP101 but have long been a fan of the Hogues. It's just how much you want to spend. Both are excellent grips.

Congrats on the handgun!
