like the looks of the new SP 8 shot adjustable sighted revolver. Would like to hear from owners of the SP. Don't have a 22LR handgun and I've always liked the SP series.
My Stainless 6.5" SS is about a half lb heavier, and the longer barrel also gives it an edge over my SP101. I wish someone would supply a narrower front sight for the 101, as that also gives me some variation when trying for a consistent sight picture at 50yds.Accuracy on ours is good; not quite up to our Single Sixes, but still plenty good for most uses.
The .357/4.2" has a full underlug, and I suspect the .22/SP would not balance as well with a heavier barrel. The 3" barrel is still available in .357, where the extra beef does reduce muzzle rise. .22's don't need that.The 4.2" is fugly. Wish they'd bring back the full underlug 3".
Or, polish the internals and install a 8lb trigger return spring.The 4.2 .22 SP is not the best gun for small kids & those with lower hand strength.
One of the easiest & cheapest ways of getting around that stiff DA pull is....don't use it.
