Not a good way to start the year! I have already found a must have revolver. Take a look at this new Lipsey's Special....

Wow that is a real looker half lug SP101 so is that a 3 or 4 inch barrel. I can see why the OP is interested in this SP101. Looking forward to seeing more pictures & a shooting report!!

I came late to the SP101 party. I bought one a year or so ago simply because it was on sale for $349. At that price I couldn't pass it up. Since then I've come to really appreciate these fine revolvers. I was always a big fan of my J-frame but I have to admit I think I like the SP101 better. Yes, it's heavier but I carry my 3" in a quality OWB holster and it literally disappears on my hip. It's not great for pocket carry but in a holster it carries as well as my Sig P938.

The one pictured in this thread is a good looking pistol. I'm not at the must have stage, yet, but I'm certainly in the very interested stage.

That's a beauty! I have the 2-1/4" DAO. I sure would like an adjustable rear sight on mine.

I can't tell from the pic. Is it blued or stainless?
I believe it's polished stainless looking at the barrel. The back of the receiver is in the shadows giving it a blue look. Either way she's a purdy piece.

Actually, I looked it up and I'm pretty sure it is blued steel, and that would be my only problem with it. Everything else is superb.

I'm glad y'all couldn't figure out the finish either. I was confused but tended to think it was blued. So, to recap: blue, half lug, nice grips. I like it. A lot.

Beautiful gun .. I really love the little half lug design. very sexy. Like the ruger grip inserts and the frame coloring too. Nice score

Blued...ugh. Well that's a letdown. It's still a beauty.

Blued or stainless steel either one I would be fine with. But for clean up after a shooting session I much prefer stainless especially if I am shooting hard cast lead bullets.

I’m not finding it on the Lipsey’s site. Or maybe I’m not looking hard enough.

What is this... some sort of Shot Show 2020 new release?

They just posted about it yesterday. I don't think they have a picture up on their website. I saw it on a FB post and stole the picture. Now I need to get one for real. I am glad it is blued because then if they release it in SS, I will have an excuse to get on of those as a field gun.

I am thinking some stag inserts would go good with this.
