New blued steel SP101 .357 unveiled by Ruger (PHOTOS)

Ruger is offering a variant of their classic SP101 small frame double-action revolver for those who eschew the gun’s normal stainless configurations.

The new five-round wheel gun is manufactured from alloy steel, and features a 2.25-inch barrel, fixed rear sight and ramped front sight. Chambered in .357 Magnum and weighing in at 26-ounces, Chris Killoy, Ruger president & CEO said in a statement the company has fielded numerous customer requests for the new model, which is manufactured in their New Hampshire plant.

“As the first blued alloy model in this family of revolvers, this new configuration sets itself apart from other SP101s and makes for a great compact and rugged carry firearm,” said Killoy.

Like other SP101s, the blued steel model features Ruger’s triple-locking cylinder, double-action/single-action triggers, an internal transfer bar safety system and full-length rubber/checkered wood composite grips.

MSRP is $719
