When Ruger introduced the SP101 double-action revolver a dozen years ago, it was well received. First designed as a small-frame .38 Special, the SP101 was considerably lighter and more compact than the .357 Mag. GP100. In addition to .38 Special, .32 Mag., 9mm and (later) .357 Mag. Chamberings, the SP101 was also offered in .22 rim-fire versions. I acquired one of the DA Ruger .22s soon after they became available.
