THE RUGER SP101 with INTERNAL COMP
PORTED - PLATED - STREET TUNED - BEVELED CHAMBERS
There are hundreds of revolvers to choose from made by Colt, Smith and Wesson, RUGER, Taurus, Rossi, and others in every just about every caliber from .32 to 44 magnum.
The Ruger pictured started as a .357 magnum, ported and plated to brush chrome and the usual AP&W gunsmithing magic applied. The Ruger has a reputation for strength and reliability. It's a stout frame but the .357 round needs a stout frame.
Webmeister: I spent a short visit with folks from the French LE GIGN (Their counter-terrorisn Swat Teams) and some carried the Manurhin 3 inch snub nose. Their theory was their main battle weapon had to do the job and the backup has to be 110% just in case. The frame to caliber size is stout. The LE GIGN officer told me if he ran out of ammo he could probably throw it at the bad guy and kill him that way.
The tune and the porting tame this firearm and make a very serious personal protection piece out of it. Thats power and control. Generally the Ruger's come with what we call a factory tune, sort of like shaving with a blade that's been used twenty times. Bob's street tune makes the gun handle differently. I can control mine. The difference is amazing.
SIMILAR WORK IS DONE ON
Smith and Wesson, Ruger LCR, Taurus, Rossi, and similar Snub Noses,
Most double action, hammer or hammerless models, etc.
Note: Restrictions apply on some models when safety enters the equation based on
initial construction of the firearm. Also "key" models.
Most upgrades are common to both models in aluminum and Steel.
